I wonder if Ron Gilbert, Tim Schafer or Dave Grossman have a hand in this new series?

EDIT: Looks like only Grossman. Not bad though - the dude had a huge influence on Day of the Tentacle

This is from the FAQ part of the website:

What about Ron Gilbert? Is he involved?

Ron doesn't work at Telltale (he's busy making his own game with Hothead), but he's friends with a lot of Telltale folks from back in the day at LucasArts. And when he found out what we were up to with Tales of Monkey Island, he was pretty excited. In fact, early in the project he came down to our office for a few days to brainstorm ideas with our team. You can see what Ron has to say about the new series over at his Grumpy Gamer blog.

Haha, I just got this Email too. Sounds awesome! I never got to play the originals but hear from EVERYONE how awesome they were. I really have to find a way to play them and catch up. Wish they had them on the Wii or the DS =P

G/F just flipped over this.
Also why is it that when i click the "Diablo" picture, i get sent to pc games without the Diablo and even when i searched for Diablo, i get no results.
Oh boy...You said there was going to be Diablo op. Where is my Diablo? I dont see Diablo. You promised me Diablo.

I pre-ordered the last Monkey Island game and all I got was some lousy magnets. I will probably pre-order this one too. I playing Sam & Max Season 1 right now, so I have faith in Telltale Games doing this justice. I am a huge fan of the series. I even made my own "I beat the swordmaster" shirt. Nobody got it. It was great.

If only Full Throttle hadn't been cancelled...

Well, I own just about every other episodic game Telltale has made, so I might as well get this.

Of course, phrasing it like that severely understates how excited I am about this and the Monkey Island Special Edition. Cannot wait.

This makes me so happy. The Secret of Monkey Island was the first computer game I ever played, and now my precious series is coming back again. I actually quote The Curse of Monkey Island on a regular basis in conversation. Consider this ordered. I will support anything to get Monkey Island back again. Long live the glory days of Lucasarts!

We need a thread dedicated to our favorite Monkey Island quotes.

As far as I can tell, the pre-ordering is only for the PC version not the Wii, correct? Not that I won't buy it, just would dig this swag of course.

what does #2 mean? Where do we select the free episode of choice? What are the options?

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think the website said if you preorder you get all the episodes as they are released on your computer in downloadable form, and then all 5 eps will be released on a single disc which you just pay shipping for, so you get it both ways.
Also why is it that when i click the "Diablo" picture, i get sent to pc games without the Diablo and even when i searched for Diablo, i get no results.

They email you a coupon. Its probably like how they always do it, its any episode (its just a $8.95 coupon code that if I remember right, its only valid on games so no, you sadly can't use it on merch)

yep, same setup as always when it comes to the season pass

I think I'll just get them on Steam. A disk based version is nice, but unnecessary.

Nice. Have some fond memories of the older MI games.

So my PC has been without a video card recently until I read this and stopped being lazy and put one in, and I haven't been playing PC games in a while.

Any recommendation for which episode I should get with my free code? Debating between Sam & Max season 1 or Wallace and Gromit 1

got excited till I saw the art direction... If they're only willing to put that much effort into the art--and the trailer didn't have one good laugh. Monkey island 1-3 were great. 4 was like the made for tv movie. Hopefully this one isn't the like a tv show that that came out 20 years after the original series that was canceled quickly. But I'm not hopeful.

This is the second thing I thought when I saw the email last night. The first thing I thought was "No Fucking way!".

Preordered. This is crap-my-pants awesome. The Special Edition remake of the first MI looks awesome as well. Somewhere in hell, there's a snowball fight going on. Next step, Purple and Green Tentacles. Not such a long shot now, is it?

It *is* coming to the Wii in WiiWare form. See the logo at the bottom of this page:

http://www.telltaleg...om/monkeyisland

Of course there is no "pre-order" concept for WiiWare and thus no pre-order bonuses. Maybe that's what you were talking about?

EDIT: I've never played any of the original games either. I may have to pick up the WiiWare version.

if you order directly from Telltale you get 2 copies of the game. 1 download and 1 dvd. so you get both and you can gift/sell/trade the dvd if you want.
