Tiller Blogs Monkey Island, Ghost Pirates 08 Jun, 2009, 01:37 / 8 comments

Bill Tiller at Autumn Moon has just posted a great blog detailing how he came to conceive Ghost Pirates of Vooju Island. He shares tidbits of developing Monkey Island games at LucasArts and he reacts to the Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition and Telltale's Tales of Monkey Island.
But the cool thing is the fans REALLY win here no matter how or why the MI games got made. Fans get Secret of MI with sound, voice and new take at the old graphics, they get an episodic down loadable game with real time environments from Tell Tale, and in January they’ll get a retail CD, full game, with hand painted backgrounds in the CMI style, but with a whole new story line and new characters, and you get to play ghosts and switch between three main characters. So as a huge MI fan I consider this a win, win, win! I hope other Monkey fans do too.
Yes we do, Bill, yes we do. May you springboard your own marketing plan from the publicity wave that the LucasArts & Telltale Monkey Island games will generate!

    I will also be playing anything Mr. Tiller is behind, but I hope he doesn't go broke before he even gets to put AVS2 out :/

    "...instead of a geeky kid at Disneyland/ Big whoop™ wishing he was a pirate..." Oooh, snap!

    Nice article Bill!

    oh, Mr.Tiller, please remove the silly 'login to one of these webservices to post' thingie from your blog.. it really scares people off, even when they want to comment..

    but here's my comment i tried placing there:
