Then this bit of news caught my eye: Ankh is heading to the Nintendo DS. There have been adventures on the DS before, but this is the first time a humorous LucasArts-imitation-style one has appeared on the console.
Maybe if this is some sort of success, we might hold out some hope for... other possibilities?
UPDATE: Speaking of Adventure Gamers, they coincidentally put an interview with Jan Klose of Deck13 today.
And if their next game isn't "inspired by" Monkey Island then I'm Jojo's uncle.
