  • I doubt that Telltale have any good reason not to do season 2 eventually. The 25th anniversary edition came out not too long after tales was released and it sold like mad! Then they released monkey 2 special edition and that sold like mad too. Telltale take the hint this game is THE GAME we don’t require or want a sequel we MENTALY AND PHYSICALY NEED ONE! Please tell Lucas Arts to stop beating the decaying corpse of star wars by releasing crappy sequels (Force unleashed 2) and remake some classics or at least make a start on Tales season 2.
    P.S

    Remakes needed manic mansion, Day of the tentacle, Full Throttle, the Dig.....you get the point

  • @StarEye said: You mean like Puzzle Agent, Hector and Fables?

    puzzle agent is one episode. Hector is probably going to be only two or three. Fable is more largely known then monkey island

  • if anyone knows if/when it's getting released let me know

  • well if/when there was another tomi game, why could'nt lechuck 'finally' die and a new villan be introduced? Or Guybrush's son or something... just an idea

    You could do that.
    LeChuck could reveal that he is Guybrush's brother (again) and we could plaster MI with more inane Star Wars references.

    What's more is we could make a prequel to the entire series, discovering Guybrush's older brother LeChuck and his swashbuckling escapades against a Caribbean that is being supplanted by an inSidious plot by some random mysterious and dark figure. Then we can follow the descent of LeChuck to darkness in later games.
    Here's how it goes:

    MI: The Monkey Menace
    After joining as a fledgling padawan of the Voodoo Temple, the Temple's High Priestess, the Vooddoo Lady (who has an unnatural predilection for swampy-Dagobah type abodes) will make prophetic assessments about the young LeChuck that only the Gamers will understand when she tells young LeChuck that his fears and anxieties (typical teen mumbo jumbo) will not only lead to acne and Facebook bullying but could cause him to fall to the darkside :eek:

    The rest of the game will involve redundant puzzles in liberating Blood island under embargo and occupation from a certain Marco LaGrande who is just a proponent of a much broader, and meticulously evil scheme played out by the inSidious Voodoo Priest.

    LeChuck will develop a forbidden crush on a much older woman by the name of Goodsoup.

    And the island will be saved in the end with the annihilation of the embargo, the capture and reprimand of Marco, by the Caribbean Senate, and the death of a pirate-hunting apprentice to the voodoo priest.

    MI: Attack of the Undead

    10 years later. The darkside of Voodoo have began to be recognised in the encroaching shadows on the Republic of the Caribbean.
    LeChuck begins the game again, now a little less pimply,a lot more angsty. And has developed a pretty gnarly beard too.

    Meanwhile assassination attempts lead LeChuck and his allies on a mission that uncovers a secret undead army being developed on a mysterious island, deleted from the Phatt Island Library catalogue, known as Monkey Island.

    Looking to who is behind this the Supreme Pirate Governor reveals this as a part of a new order in the Republic, helping to enure less Rum-induced brain damage, portection of open ports from potential embargo, and upholding the need for established bed-times on Islands of perpetual darkness.

    To offset this proliferation of repressions the Republic engages in a conflict on a planet traced to earlier assassinations from mysterious pirate-hunters. There it is revealed recent attempts by Islands to secede from the Republic has culminated in this groups own proliferation of armed forces. Little does young LeChuck or the Pirate Republic realise that this is in fact a part of the evil Voodoo Priest's dastardly plans to fracture the Caribbean.

    Oh and LeChuck visits his drop-dead gorgeous Goodsoup Girlfriend, consolidating their forbidden love with a massive ring.

    Revenge of... (the corny titles that do not fit with the established MI title flow)

    War!
    LeChuck's been rustling the sheets and rocking the boat (yeah he had sex get over it)

    The Pirate Republic is in a state of Civil War known as the Undead Wars! Every island has become embroiled in the conflict. Meanwhile dark forces of voodoo are playing out within the Pirate Republic.
    This is a state of uncertainty and fear.

    A few action scenes later...

    LeChuck loses faith in the Voodoo Temple and says "what the heck I want to be a pirate", faces off against his old friends who kill him (after they solve some meticulous puzzle) and he dies as a consequence.
    The Voodoo Lady squares off with the Evil Voodoo Priest too.

    Etc.

    She loses, relocates to Melee Island after also losing a bid at auction on a nice swamp-land hut to an annoying man in a static plaid suit; 2 bedrooms, ensuite, double boat dock, and a murky swimming pool. Only $220,000.

    The evil Voodoo regime takes over the galaxy, ahem, the Caribbean and LeChuck returns as an evil ghost to boss everyone around.


    The rest you know.


    So what do you think?
    My writing excellence aside do you think its a great idea, I know LucasArts would be salivating right now. It may not be the MI we want but it's the MI they're going to give us if we ask them anyway.

  • @Guybrush Threepweed said: I hate to say this but there really isn't any scope for anymore stories because everything has been said and done, from guybrush dying , lechuck turning human etc. I would be quite frankly, suprised if telltale got hold of a more diabolical plot.

    I disagree. I think that there's an endless supply of routes and avenues that Monkey Island could take in future games. The MI world is vast and expansive, and hasn't even been fully explored yet. As far as the whole 'Guybrush & Elaine versus LeChuck' scenario goes, yeah, all options for that may have been exhausted. But if the writers choose to break away from that situation, then there's myriad possibilities for future storylines, plotlines and original ideas.

  • @hamza721 said: Fable is more largely known then monkey island

    Didnt know about the comic till I saw the blog post. But the MI game is an old franchise and some people may have heard of it or saw it.

  • I've never heard of Fables before this. I'm fairly sure Monkey Island is more known than Fables to gamers.

  • @Hayden said: I disagree. I think that there's an endless supply of routes and avenues that Monkey Island could take in future games.

    The Voodoo lady is a good route to take. She could do somthing that in her mind is good but Guybrush thinks is evil and he has to stop.

  • @coolsome said: The Voodoo lady is a good route to take. She could do somthing that in her mind is good but Guybrush thinks is evil and he has to stop.

    Yeah, the Voodoo Lady would be nice; something new and fresh. However, I don't really want to see the Voodoo Lady turn into someone who is depicted as entirely 'evil' or as a direct antagonist. I'd rather her remain a neutral force, in all honesty.

    I'd actually really like to see King Andre given the role of lead villain in one of the future games. I've expressed my reasons elsewhere:

    @coolsome said: Anyway, on the subject of returning characters, I'd actually really love to see a re-appearance from King Andre. He was such a cool character; everything about him - his appearance, his lair, his persona and personality - was just great. He was a top villain, but was never given enough time in the sun/limelight. So I'd love to see him come back with a slightly larger role in one of the future games.

    Perhaps, now with LeChuck now just a skull in a jar, Andre's willing to come out of his cave, and make an attempt at conquering the Caribbean, perhaps using his wealth to hire LeChuck's leftover skeletal minions to do his dirty work.
    Or maybe he could 'pull an Ozzie', and use his riches to try to buy up the Caribbean, while hiring the best bounty hunters in the Caribbean to eliminate all competition and opposition.
    Just some thoughts :).

    What I'm basically trying to say is that the character has a lot of potential, so it would be a shame if he went unused.
