Is Guybrush Threepwood still the wannabe pirate king?
The 'point and click' adventure has been clinically dead for quite a while now, largely because it seemed impossible to make a good example of the genre in 3D. Many developers tried, but almost all of them failed, mostly due to clunky controls or annoying moving cameras. To be honest, there’s...
Multiple projects reportedly axed
Telltale Games shot to video game fame working on multiple well-known IP including The Walking Dead, Minecraft, Batman and even Game of Thrones. Last month, a Telltale representative said the
Look behind you! A three-headed monkey!
Ron Gilbert may have a list of game credits that boggles the mind, but is best known for a handful of stone cold classics. We're not referring to the recent The Cave - which was a solid game itself - but are going way back to the glory days of LucasArts and point-and-click adventure games. Gilbert was involved...
Developer loves Nintendo's machine, actually
Despite the fact that one of the company's staff is of the opinion that the iPhone is more powerful than the Wii, Telltale's design director has insisted that he thinks Nintendo's platform is a perfect fit for their games. We think the Wii audience is perfect for the kinds of games we make, orientated...
The Virtual Console takes a break after the Hanabi Festival.
After North America did not get any VC games the last two weeks some people were rightfully worried that Europe would also not get any new ones as soon as the Hanabi Festival was over. Those worries were well warranted, because as it turns out, indeed, there's not one new VC game tonight!...
Telltale Games seem to think so!
Monkey Island hasn't even been out a week yet, and already a storm's brewing over the game's choppy framerate. When a fan complained on the Telltale Games forums about the Wii versions' framerate, a Telltale programmer went on record to say: ..The Wii is just not a powerful console. An iPhone is much more powerful...
Virtual Console sits out again.
We're really wondering what's going on over at Nintendo of America - Last week didn't have any VC games, but this week doesn't either! For about the 7th time in a row, there are 3 new WiiWare games, though. Tales of Monkey Island Chapter 1: Launch of the Screaming Narwhal is the first episode in Telltale's new...
The premier episode is almost upon us.
Good news for fans of the Tales of Monkey Island titles, the first episode, "Launch of the Screaming Narwhals", is set to hit the North American WiiWare service on Monday, July 27th at a cost 1000 Wii Points. We've also been informed that information regarding a European release should be coming soon...
We asked Telltale some questions about the legendary series which has finally come to a Nintendo platform.
Who hasn't heard of the Monkey Island series? Although it has never been on any Nintendo platform until now, most people still know that it's one of the greatest point and click adventure series ever made, but after Escape from Monkey Island,...
Two WiiWare releases already confirmed for a Monday release.
Bernd Geiblinger has confirmed via the Bplus Forums that their newest WiiWare release Bit Boy!! is coming to the North American WiiWare service on Monday, July 13th. Also confirmed for release by IGN this Monday is Telltales's Tales of Monkey Island EP 1: Launch of the Screaming Narwhal...
Telltale Games revives LucasArts's classic graphic adventure series for WiiWare and PC.
Californian development studio Telltale Games today announced plans to reignite LucasArt's seminal Monkey Island franchise with two projects - a high-definition remake of the classic Secret Of Monkey Island game for PC and Xbox Live Arcade and an all-new episodic...
A new Monkey Island adventure dawns with Guybrush Threepwood in a typically tight spot. With his beloved (if a little stubborn) wife Elaine having been kidnapped by zombie pirate LeChuck, Guybrush sets out on a collision course with his old foe to settle things once and for all.
Of course, finishing off LeChuck is something of a tall order, and only after a consultation with the mysterious Voodoo Lady is Guybrush suitably prepared for the task at hand. Having collected nearly all of the ingredients necessary to forge The Cursed Cutlass of Kaflu, Guybrush prepares himself to strike the decisive blow in his never-ending feud with LeChuck.
But this is Guybrush Threepwood we’re talking about, and nothing is necessarily as straightforward as it appears. In fact, what might be his greatest moment could very quickly descend into farce and act as a starting point for his most challenging and outrageous adventure yet...
