Yes, you read that title right! We’re still recovering after this fantastic news!

*breathe in* *breathe out* Whew, okay… check this out:  An unofficial source (EDIT: Apparently that page was removed just after we found out. Let’s hope we can keep it as long as possible) has posted two work-in-progress images of an alternate ending that LucasArts is preparing for Monkey Island 2: Special Edition. As you can clearly see from both images, Guybrush is holding a chest which may be the REAL treasure of Big Whoop.

The source reads “It is quite possible that Ron Gilbert has finally decided to end the Monkey Island series as he wanted, revealing the true secret. This will stir up various reactions from the fanbase, as most of us actually expected the real Monkey Island 3”.

You can check out the images below by clicking “read the rest”. The cave could explain why the designers chose to draw tree roots in the HD version instead of metal bars. Apparently we will be able to finish LeChuck’s Revenge in both the original and the Special Edition mode! Sweet Zombie Monkeys!

    Hahaha! You silly voodoo-schmoodoo scientist! You fell for it! HA!

    My plan worked perfectly!
    I hypnotized the crew at Talesofmi.net and even made SWP write that silly blog entry only to confuse you!


    …but if we would become friends, just for a day, would I get free food? I have no refrigerator, darn it!

    Apparently he’s not actually holding the chest. It’s a long and convoluted puzzle chain in which he gets it superglued to his hand.

    Telltale are considering lopping Guybrush’s hand off in the next Tales series and replacing it with a sentient chest that hates people, as a homage.
