Default Re: Monkey Island...

They didn't BUY Sam and Max, Steve Purcell owns Sam and Max, always has*, Lucas Arts was just in luck Steve worked for them on the Monkey Games and when he pitched Sam and Max they hoped on board, they licensed the rights to make games, in 2005 that ended and now Telltale licensed Sam and Max. Of course Monkey Island is another story, LucasArts poor performance over the last few years opened a lot of doors for the devs eager to continue the classic games. LA need the money, the fans want the games. (And pay for them, I've spent over 1000USD in the Telltale store since Sam and Max Season 1 :: )

The XBLA version looks better as it is running the new engine that runs Season 2. Which had enhanced widescreen support. Would be nice if us Season 1 and 2 PC guys were given free copies of the 360 versions. I mean they gave free DVDs to us.

*It's believed Steve's brother might have actually invented Sam and Max and drew them first, but Steve turned them into the crazy duo we now know.

Not sure if this has been posted before but it appears Lucasarts want to do more adventure remakes.

Quote:
"If this sells, there's no one at this company who doesn't want to do these games" says Lucasarts' Brooks Brown. "It's a matter of showing that there's interest and this market is alive and get people as excited as possible about Monkey Island Special Edition to show that these things can make it".

It'd be awesome if they'd remake Full Throttle in HD like they did with Monkey Island.

Doubt it.
MI is coming to PC atleast, dont think they´ll drop the PC for the next one, whatever that may be.

Depending on what sells and how, they might drop one or the other (or both).

If you see someone pirating Monkey Island SE on PC, smack them as hard as you can, in other words.
