i kno u've been taking a lot of pressure recently from MI fans complaining about the game ur making. must've been a lota stress.
i think i know why the people like Monkey Island. it is for the game's atmosphere. the atmosphere of magic, the atmosphere of humour, the atmosphere of love and romance. i'm sure, we all want to keep that atmosphere, that's why everyone's worried about the game. it just means too much to us.
i'm not too worried about the type of graphics, control or the looks of characters or etc.. i have just one major concern (which i've stated before).
so... this isn't a complaint... nor is it a statement. i'd refer to it as a petition. i've watched an interview with you guys recently, and i believe that your intensions are good. perhaps i used a rather rude way to draw ur attention the first time...
as you know, my concerns are caused by the title of the fifth episode of TMI. of course, i discern nothing about the plot... i am vexed about the matter, though...
i'm asking you to leave this poll open for the sake of all the MI fans out there, who share my concern. if our point of view doesn't make it to the top, do as you please. but if it does, consider this a petition from us to free TMI from becoming just another pagan game.
let it stay religiously neutral as before (of course stuff like silly 'cannibals' and 'voodoo' magic doesn't count).
hoping every1'd share their opinion with us!
Sheesh, I am christian, but lets think about those things seriously in a clean and enlightened manner (enlighened in the sense of applying a brain here)
Monkey island plays in the carribeans in the 18th century, a time and place where we had following things:
a) Voodoo as paganic religion imported from the african slaves already taking christian symbols to hide itself underground
b) A lot of misconceptions about the world which manifest itself in somehwat twisted religious views going straight into wichcraft believes and other things
c) People being killed left and right due to ilnesses violence or war or straight by a lot of accidents (people died like fleas was were born like fleas), with sexual diseases widespread more than anything else
d) Hygienic circumstances which are close to what we would call bio hazard, but that not on garbage dumps but in average life
e) People washing themselves maybe once per year, because everything else was seen as unhealthy
So now we have a game making a humourous mockery about those things (a and b, and c to a small degree), I am all for it :-)
This is a game and a parody so live with it I must say, and enjoy it!
Guess if you live in Europe you see religious things way more relaxed than in the US, the funny thing is over hear the most religiously zealous people are the ones being declared atheists, while the rest of the bunch is rather relaxed!
