Something of the Thread: Something is afoot…

April 17th, 2011 by | 6 comments

HaydenWCE has spotted something interesting over at the official Monkey Island Facebook page. Craig Derrick is hinting that something may be about to happen, saying “Great things come to those that wait.” What could it be? While you’re pondering that question and waiting for great things to come, you can participate in this sea shanty game, or read the game script angeldeb82 created for Tales chapter 4 (or just do both). If you’re really creative, you can participate in the improvement meme. Dig up an old piece of Monkey Island fan art and draw it again, only better! This post’s header shows an example of such an improved drawing, by guimero64.

Weekly Wiki: Tales of Monkey Island

April 12th, 2011 by | 4 comments

If you haven’t yet played Tales of Monkey Island and are stubbornly refusing to do so, read this article on the Monkey Island Wiki. Before you’ve reached the end, you’ll be crying like a baby, emptying your wallet and running to the Telltale store in order to buy it. Or, if not, you could try to get it for free. One possibility in that respect is to participate in this contest on Facebook. All you have to do is come up with a funny pirate grog recipe (Grog XD, anyone?) and live in Europe. The latter may be a bit hard for some of you to achieve, but what’s a plane ticket and emigration when you could win a copy of the Tales of Monkey Island Collector’s Edition?
