April Fools 2002 Apr 01, 2002: "Monkey Island 5 box art ?" (Dalixam, on World of MI)

As you know, I have been very sceptical about the sound files that have appeared recently and are supposedly from Monkey Island 5, but I just received an email which puts a damper on my suspicions. The email contained a small image, which supposedly is an early draft of the MI5 box art. The image is very small, but you can make out that the title of the game is "Return to Monkey Island". This is most likely a working title, which will change later on.

The email comes from an anonymous sender, but the address appears to be from a reliable source. Whether this is the real thing or not only time will tell, but it sure looks real to me.
