The SCUMM Bar is back. For real! 03 Jun, 2009, 17:34 / 12 comments

First, if you're reading this on Mojo, go here for the rest of the update to make (more) sense.

Well, it's not quite 2015, but The SCUMM Bar is back. I mean, like, really back. Not just for pretend or April's Fools or wanting your money or anything like that. We have relaunched the longest running Monkey Island mainly as a Tales of Monkey Island and The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition resource site, but plan to expand it quite a bit in the future.

So, what's new? First, the news section. Instead of just posting the same news Mojo is posting, which is slightly redundant, we are now literally posting Mojo's news, by hooking into their news system. If you want to post a comment, you will be taken to Mojo and will have to sign up for an account there to post.

"But what's the point of reading The SCUMM Bar then?!" you may ask. There are plenty of reasons! First, we have put together some large, and ever growing, resource sites for Tales of Monkey Island and Special Edition. And look over on the right there (you're reading this at The SCUMM Bar, right?) -- you can see the latest updates from the Telltale blog, as well as the latest Google News updates for Monkey Island. Want a Monkey Island specific RSS feed? You got it! And... Well, we're keeping it small to start of with, but some fairly major features will be launched over the next week.

Anyway -- The SCUMM Bar is rocking it again. Just pretend like we never left!

    Glad to see it rocking again, but... you guys have killed the SCUMM Bar!!! Take it back to the original design, and keep the improvements! Pretty please?

    sorry, i liked the old design a lot better

    it felt like being in the game

    Will it also cover "Ghost Pirates of Vooju Island" news?
  • Remi O on 03 Jun, 2009, 20:13…
    It can cover pretty much whatever Mojo posts, I'd just need to add the game id to the filter.

    I don't know, I mean it's super to see you guys back online, but the look of the site is too modern. I think the old one was more MI type.. Still great to see you posting MI news again - been waiting it for years!

    I can't pretend you didn't leave me....sobbing in the rain!

    Maybe this deserves a more updated layout! What do you think guys?

    PS: Tears filled my eyes with the Special Edition! Bloody well done! Good F***** JOB!

    Wow, what LucasAts did!
    Or what we (the LA community) did? With the petition and death threats and so on! :)

    Maybe it's time for LucasTones to make a comeback too...

    But where are all the old interviews? The images? Features? Who will update over fanart? Who will scam the helpless masses?

  • Remi O on 03 Jun, 2009, 17:49…
    ... the bottom entry in the menu? (Though fanart will probably never be updated again. :~)
  • Kroms on 03 Jun, 2009, 17:55…
    Ah. Should probably make it more apparent. Why not just use the old site's design?
