Ron, Dave, Tim introduce themselves

April 27th, 2010 by | No comments

One of the main attractions of the Monkey Island 2 Special Edition has got to be the commentary from the guys who designed the game in the first place. Now LucasArts have released a video that teases us in that respect, in which you can see Ron Gilbert, Dave Grossman, and Tim Schafer introduce themselves to the eager player of games and listener to commentary tracks.

Gamespot gets old Monkey crew together

April 24th, 2010 by | 4 comments

Gamespot have dug up Ron Gilbert, Tim Schafer, Dave Grossman, and Craig Derrick, to quiz them about the upcoming special edition of the beloved second installment in the Monkey Island series. You can read the ensuing hi-jinx here, which contains the following jewel out of Schafer’s mouth:

No other game had spitting in their game, really. Maybe I’m just biased because I wired that part up. But I thought it was the best part of the game. Now that I’m thinking about it, “Spitting Contest” would make a great Natal game.

Final interview for eywtkatomi,bWata-week

January 22nd, 2010 by | 3 comments

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!

Everything…etc.etc. Part III

everything 3

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!

January 19th, 2010 by | 3 comments

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!

Dave Grossman talks about MI, is silent about future

November 20th, 2009 by | 5 comments

interview

IncGamers have just posted a lovely interview with Dave Grossman, about the success of Tales of Monkey Island. In it, he divulges a tiny bit about the next and last episode, which will continue on the dark note that chapter 4 has introduced. When it comes to future Monkey Island series from Telltale though, Dave remains silent, promising only (through PR guy Chris) that an announcement will come soon, and saying that a lot is being worked on at Telltale.

So, any idea what that announcement might be? A new season of Sam & Max, an earth-shattering licence agreement, new IP, or already a new MI series? Take a guess in the comments, and if your idea turns out to be correct, you win eternal fame! (Which is worth at least one cookie on the Internet, if not two.)

Update: Also check out this interview with Joe Pinney on Boomtown.
