  • I had a dream, that all the money that DF got from Kickstarter went to obtaining the licence from Disney. I mean, they got pretty much money, and now it's almost all gone. Where's the money gone? :P

    Either that or development/production of Cave.

    3 million dollars isn't actually that much when it comes to a video game's budget. Costume Quest and Stacking cost that much to make, and Psychonauts cost more than 4 times that.

  • *sing* and the times, they are a-changing....

    i'd say kickstarter

    but - like wing commander - some stupid, filthy rich company buys the rights to a game series, which is the death of every hope.

    good luck with star citizen, chris roberts and others like elite:dangerous. death to EA, death to DISNEY. and - most especially - DEATH to george lucas!

    yea i'm not all serious about that death thingie :)

  • @Ashton said: Disney doesn't keep skeletons in it's closet, it buries them. I came to this section of the forum hoping for some hint a new MI game would come, instead I find this, which makes me say "MI does not fit Disney's kid-friendly image, so it will be locked away and they'll pretend it never happened"

    If Disney tries to lock this series in the closest thinking it never existed they have another thing coming. They seem to forget that Monkey Island was INSPIRED by THEIR OWN PIRATE RIDE at their theme parks.

    And the pirates film series have a few similar elements that are used from the Monkey Island series. So Disney making a new pirates product while not allowing to greenlight a new Monkey Island game sounds hypocritical if you ask me.

    That would be as hypocritical as not giving the rights to two Sam and Max games to the creator of Sam and Max, who happens to work for Pixar.

  • Telltale owns Sam and Max now. They have owned the rights to it when Lucasart's contract with Purcell expired. So they gotta ask Steve to do anything with the dog and rabbit.

    Not true. Purcell owns it and lets companies have it for as long as they want but take the franchise back for re-leasing after 5 years of inactivity on the franchise.

  • Is there any fan made monkey island game by the way ?

    There are lots of Monkey Island fan games, most of which are listed here, as well as other fangames based on LucasArts properties.
