Return to Monkey Island trailer goes live 28 Jun, 2022 / 18 comments

PC. Nintendo. Awesomeness. Mojo will return with more soon. Just watch the damn thing.

Update! The official site has been turned into a small interactive game with screenshots, Stan, etc.

And to editorialize: If you don't at the very least respect the look of the game, you're dead inside. Dead!

Want to wishlist it? Steam has got you covered. Nintendo has it listed, too.

Update #2 Ron confirms a Mac release:

It will be released on the Mac. 90% of the programming team is on the Mac. Windows is the "port".

    Looks great! I just hope this isn't part of some elaborate April Fools joke.

    I love it. The art is my sort of thing. That scene of LeChuck in the jungle is just so rich and full of depth, and the characters themselves look great to my eyes. This is probably my favourite LeChuck style second to Curse.

    I've been coming here for years but never heard of this game. It's something about monkeys, right?

    Let's just put it this way, I will be thoroughly enjoying this game despite its looks. It's just not a good fit at all for the MI universe art in my opinion, but it won't get in the way of my loving everything else about the game.



    I do think it’s entirely possible to generally be eh about the look of the game, yet still respect the graphics for what they are. Which really was my point — I have no problems with people not liking what they’re seeing, but I do take issue with those who behave like the team came into their houses and slapped their moms. (Which is not what you’re saying, of course.)



    lol
    does this apply to the other side?
    if someone says the truth about the artstyle, they act like someone "came into their houses and slapped their moms"
    the thing is that someone should always criticize, so that they might not fall in the same mistake again.

    Also, I'm pretty sure that's a playable Elaine at 1:05 (and possibly earlier when she's hanging on that rope as well). They hinted at it before, and it's really cool to see it might be true.



    I believe Ron said Elaine would not be a playable character in a comment on his blog. Or in an interview. Or somewhere.

    Is that Elaine fighting Morgan from Tales in that scrap book picture at 0:14?? It could be someone else, but it sure looks like her! Really fun that there might be more nods to the later game apart from Murray.

    This trailer is really rewatchable. I honestly really dig the artstyle (and I'm not just saying that to be cool, there's so much personality in there. LeChuck looks great as well!)

    Fuck me! They finally dropped the trailer! I’ve only viewed it on my phone, but I don’t care how it looks. Like really. I don’t even have an opinion one way or another… this game looks good. I WANT IT NOW!
