  • February 2012 is my bet for an announcement. After they're mostly all done with these 7 projects they're taking on, I'm sure their focus will shift to 'Monkey Island'. I can't imagine they'd keep us waiting any longer.

  • Dear LucasArts.

    The tale begins on a cold and dark winter day in the very northern part of Sweden many many years ago. A teenager sits behind his computer awaiting an installation process to finish. The rest is history...
    The teenager was I and the game was The Curse of Monkey Island. Ever since that day I have been utterly amazed by how captivating, fun and entertaining an adventure game can be. In my opinion Monkey Island is The Game (notice the capital T and G!) to which no other game can compete.
    I have the utmost respect for what your company has created and I'm confident that you will keep going down the very same road that you started back in 1990.

    Thank you for listening!

    Sincerely,
    Marcus Israelsson

  • Dear Lucasarts,

    You used to make all sorts of amazing games that did not involve lightsabers. Now I'm not saying that Star Wars games should disappear, but please, give Monkey Island, Maniac Mansion, and Indiana Jones another shot at adventure game glory.

  • are you guys asking for lucas arts to make another monkey island game or for telltale?
    most likely telltale didn't want to make another monkey island game because they wanted to focus on bigger games.

  • I think if it were out of the question for Telltale to ever make another Monkey Island, someone would have posted that by now, to save us the trouble. When Telltale remains silent on things, it means no promises either way.

    You mean like Puzzle Agent, Hector and Fables?

    This is what I was thinking :D. When it comes to adventure gaming, there isn't exactly anything much bigger than 'Monkey Island'. Though I suppose he's referring to 'BttF', 'JP' and 'The Walking Dead'. Even so, though, I'm sure that a new 'Monkey Island' game would probably sell an equal amount of copies as each of these three games will, especially since 'Tales...' brought so many new fans to the series.

    So I don't really think "telltale didn't want to make another monkey island game because they wanted to focus on bigger games" is really correct. Because, to quote Yahtzee Croshaw, "if adventure games were a nation Monkey Island would be on the one dollar bill".

  • I might get a lot of flak for this, but I want LucasArts to make the next game. I liked TMI well enough, but LA did a FANTASTIC job with LRSE. Like really really really good. The music was top notch, the graphics were beautiful. It was really awesome. Also, do you remember that promo video, in 3D? Can you imagine a whole game like that?! PERFECTION.

    Now if we can convince them to have it take place where COMI ends and pretend like the stories of the last two never happened...

    I liked them both and why would they have to pretend they don't exist there's only a few references to past games in each title so I don't see why they would have to pretend they don't exist just take TMI's approach with EMI and made as lil reference as possible (and only if they wanted to take that approach cos I think all MI games are great)

  • I justy want the series to become more of a Memoirs of Guybrush Threepwood, in that one game doesn't have to follow up on another. It's kinda how TOMI was, but every game from now on should be more like that. New stories, new adventures. Heck, I'd even see Guybrush going on an adventure all by himself, while Elaine stays home doing Governor work. Maybe Guybrush ends up in trouble, maybe a voodoo spell went horribly wrong (thanks to Guybrush being fairly forgiving when it comes to quality ingredients) and he opens up a portal that drags him in and he ends up stranded on some huge Island with only a very few civil inhabitants. Zombies, Skeletons, puzzles and ancient artifacts that needs to be combine in bizarre ways to help him open a portal to get back home.

    Okay, here I am, making up potential stories in my head again. When will it ever stop!?
