Final interview for eywtkatomi,bWata-week

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

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!

Many of our dearly beloved fans requested an interview with Jared, the multi-talented person that voiced DeSinge and composed music for games such as Bone, Sam & Max, Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People, and Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures. In 2003 he worked as a member of LucasArts’ musical department on a variety of games, including Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb and Star Wars: Republic Commando. Jared has also worked as a sound editor for other companies’ projects, such as James Bond 007: Everything or Nothing, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King and Psychonauts (This guy is so awesome, there’s an entire article about him on wikipedia!).

Nicki and Morgan

Who is sweet and adorable but can also be strong and all-piratey? No, it’s not me! …silly fans! It’s Nicki Rapp, the great voice actress who gave life to Morgan LeFlay!

Nicki was very happy to answer to our interview questions. As you will see, we, the fans, were not the only ones who were extremely excited about Monkey Island coming back. Read on to find out why!

“Morgan is very smart and tough, but also pretty vulnerable – I do like spending time with her (…) Ha! I do read the forums and frankly I am shocked!! ”

Alexandra and Elaine

The End of the season coming closer, we don’t really know when we’ll have the joy of seeing and hearing these people again. Alexandra Boyd, the actress who lended her voice to Elaine in SoMI, CoMI and ToMI, was kind enough to share her thoughts with us regarding the experience she had in the past five months. Thank you!

“(…)I’ve seen some Halloween costumes for Elaine and Guybrush on line. I’d love if they came trick or treating to my house…”

June 12th, 2009 by | 4 comments

The official Xbox magazine’s latest podcast features an interview with Dominic Armato, but the first 21 minutes is about a lot of other stuff, so if want to only hear the Dominic Armato stuff jump to 21:21. Fun interview and you get to hear about how Dominic got the role of Guybrush Threepwood.
