Telltale making Monkey Island episodes

Seems Telltale finally managed to get the rights to make Monkey Island games.

http://www.telltalegames.com/monkeyisland

Lucasarts is also releasing a 'remake' of the first game -

Yay! Now that are excellent news I hope Telltale can make some decent episodes as they did with Sam & Max Also the remake doesn't look too bad. Guess it will just be a typical 'Lucas' makeover, but maybe...

Thanks for sharing the info laffer

I'm not sure I like the style they picked, though... I'm one of those who prefer the style in the first two Monkey Island games.

The Secret of Monkey Island is the best game ever, I love it ! L_O_V_E_I_T !

Thanks for great news laffer

Guybrush reminds me of young Sean Penn in Tales of MI.

BEst thing about thisw: they said they built SE "on top of the original code"... so maybe you can run it in ScummVM

The SE version has a switchable game mode via hotkey, from the HD remake to the original old version (with speech). Sweet.

Now that is a great option! Finally MI with speech and the original graphics I will still try the 'HD' version, but really good to know you get the original version with speech.

Just saw the so called "new" version of MI this morning, I dunno what to really think about it, I mean I'm all in for an updated remake, but i didn't really feel the great rush I thought I would when I got over the great news, tbh I think the new graphics update looked like ass. But at least we can switch back to the classy old school graphics with the touch of a button

On a side note, I have to say that after looking at the list of people set to create the episodic content of monkey island, now that is an interesting setup and hopefully, just maybe with a little luck, they could bring Ron Gilbert on board to complete the circle, from what I could see he is after all the last piece they seem to be missing from the old monkey days. The way I see it, this is the chance to complete the "real" series

I doubt Gilbert will get involved, which is a shame. I systematically won't be interested in ANY game of Monkey Island where Ron Gilbert is not involved...
I am not much of a fan of the voiceovers... I'm not sure the casting is cortrect, and teh guy acting Guybrush is a dork.

He's not formally involved, but it seems the project has his blessing...
