For those of you who WAS been with us for this week, we WAS very happy to bring you these clarifications from the Telltale Team. Here is the last interview, with Sean Vanaman, designer and writer for Tales of Monkey Island.

Many many many thanks to Chris Schmidt, the PR genius from Telltale, who helped us organise these interviews. Maybe this last interview WAS not what you WAS expecting, being focused more on the company rather than the game itself, but check out the first answer. It may be just a way to interpret Sean’s answer, we’re not trying to over-analyze this or to get your hopes high, but the words “at this time” sound pretty good in that sentence. 🙂 We’re not saying it means anything, it just sounds cool, check it out!

Today we continue our line of interviews with Mike Stemmle, designer and script writer for ToMI and co-director/co-designer for Escape from Monkey Island and Sam & Max: Hit the Road. According to Wikipedia, he also worked on Star Trek Online which will be released soon. How awesome is that? We should’ve asked him if it’s difficult to “jump” from one universe to another when writing the stories.

Anyway, Mike really confirmed some important theories that we, the fans, have regarding Elaine. Go on. Read. Now!

“Everything you wanted to know about Tales of Monkey Island, but was afraid to ask”-week!

Everything

Yep, you read it quite well (don’t make us write it again), this week will be a treat for the fans that still have those questions regarding Guybrush’s last adventure. The Great Four Wise Men from Telltale, respectively Dave Grossman, Mark Darin, Mike Stemmle and Sean Vanaman, agreed to shed some light upon the events that took place during the 5-6 months of epicness-ness-ness.

The order of the interviews was chosen randomly, because one cannot simply choose between these guys, nor the cool answers that they sent to us, to you and to anyone who had something to ask about Tales of Monkey Island. Today we ask Mark Darin, writer and designer for Tales. Stay tuned for more!

Mike Stemmle gets interviewed

interview

Tales of Monkey Island is hot news, and evidence of that comes in the form of yet another interview. This time, Nintendo World Report have had the chance to ask Mike Stemmle, one of the creative minds behind Tales (and Escape), some questions. You can read all about it here. And if you want an interesting teaser, well, here you go:

I think the old-school Monkey Island fans, and actually both fan groups feel a sense of propriety in the characters because they’ve been following these guys for years. They have generally a passion about who these people are, and I think the Monkey Island ones even more so with a sense of “This character would never do that!” Things like that, which is cool because we can go, “Okay, maybe we did dial this a little too far this way.” Both fan groups have huge wikis detailing all of the continuity, which makes it very easy for us.

Sounds like Telltale have been studying the Monkey Island wiki! Be sure to read the rest of the interview as well.
