    Personally, I'd love to see the real Monkey Island 3 in which the secret is finally revealed. I guess they could team up with Ron Gilbert to make the intended sequel of the 1990 and 1992 adventures.

    Anyhow, any adventure in the former Lucasarts style would be really great, but Monkey Island is the thing I would love to play the most.

    Hi, I'm new here. ;)

    Let me clear up this speculation about the game being Sam and Max. Although all clues and indications seem to point to it (especially the shadow and the "some of you are right" e-mail), Telltale Games said in an interview with the Marin Independent Journal that their first game (the game in question) will NOT be Sam and Max 2. However, they said they would very much like to make it in the near future. So it's a safe bet that when Lucasarts loses their rights to S&M in May 2005, Telltale could contact Steve Purcell and make the game.

    So this game is not Sam and Max 2, but one of their future games, as they said they would like to have, will be Sam and Max. So they will make Sam and Max someday, but this game probably isn't it.

    My personal bet on what the game is? I'd like it to be Monkey Island 5. The shadow shown could be a monkey...however, it could be anything, because that's a pretty generic-shaped shadow...

    Some things point towards there beeing a monkey in the game...
    There's this on the Secret Page:

    Notice the monkey in the middle of the picture?

    But then again, the shadow of the "waving" guy looks to me like the Bone character...

    If it is that little caveman.....then where does it fit into the license they purchased from LucasArts?

    Perhaps LucasArts had PLANNED to make a game based on that character, but decided not to, since "there was no market for adventure games" X-( [-X

    But then TellTale bought the license from LA.

    But they(TellTale) also said that it would be something we already knew and loved...

    I'm stumped... :-?

    If it IS Monkey Island 5, maybe he's just a new character...

    I think Monkey Island 5 would be a bad idea. I think that 3 and 4 had so many plotholes that to try to continue the series would be disatrous.

    Her Majesty's Secret Service wouldn't be delighted about that name... Can you copyright a government institution's name?
