It's a monkey! Well, till you squint your eyes a little and cock your head to the side; then it looks like a duck 04 Sep, 2009, 19:18 / 14 comments

The incredible (but did you expect anything else?) piece of artwork that serves as your Tales of Monkey Island cover has been revealed at PAX. It's at low-res, for now, but hopefully they'll put up a scan soon.

Steve Purcell, you rock.

I see those of you waiting for a better version of this shivering with antici...<:MORENEWS:>

    I'm not crazy about it. I was never a fan of that style of Guybrush. I wished he had kept to the realistic style of the first two posters... :(

    Ummm... that's the worst Monkey Island boxart since EMFI. This can't be it, can it?

    I agree. There's nothing special about it, plus it almost looks the same as the CMI box art. With a touch of the MI2 box art. I would have expected some fresh touch, but maybe they just had to hurry to have a poster they could pin up at their PAX booth. ;-)

    Elaine adds a lot to it. There's other photos around.

    I added Elaine to the poster picture, taken from the picture where Dave Grossman is goofing around with Tales of Monkey Island buttons. :) http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_pwf9M3a3dTU/SqHcO9ZKz-I/AAAAAAAABU4/wAVeE1SDC10/s1600-h/talescover.png

    I agree, Elaine does add a lot to it. I personally quite like it.

    It looks half finished.. if Telltale had made this I wouldn't even comment but Purcell .. if you compare the first two covers this one looks like he did it in 20 minutes while sitting on the toilet.

    Weee. Look at the sculpture on the left!
  • Laserschwert on 04 Sep, 2009, 21:48…
    Uh, I think that's a Guybrush-poster... not a sculpture.

    Link?

    It was there earlier. What the hell?

    Here, it's fix'd now.
  • Laserschwert on 04 Sep, 2009, 19:36…
    I hope Telltale does!

    I would've made a Stinson there and put a "... wait for it..." instead of the "Read more."

    Other than that... I want that painting!!!

    Dude, you should totally make a poster out of it. =D
  • Laserschwert on 04 Sep, 2009, 19:36…
    That up there was supposed to go down here... use your imagination.
