“Launch of the Screaming Narwhal” is free for Talk Like A Pirate day, from midnight on Sept. 19th.
Didn’t know this was coming, seems a bit overpriced at $7.99, and 350mb of space seems, likewise, excessive. I’m also not entirely sure how the pointing mechanics will work, as a lot of the targets in Monkey Island are quite small. This works great for a mouse-based pointing system, but when your pointer is a human finger that Apple says should take up a minimum of a 40×40 pixel square… maybe not so much.
Update: They’re also remaking the original Monkey Island, with the help of Lucasarts.
Telltale is making new, episodic, Monkey Island games using the same engine as their Wallace and Gromit, Sam & Max, and Strong Band’s Cool Game For Attractive People series. The question is: How will they stack up without the writing of Tim Schafer?
If you buy stuff from Telltale, use this link and I get a small kickback.
