but for Monkey Island, they're looking for a compromise. Right now, you can use the keyboard to move around, but you still need the mouse to click stuff and manipulate your inventory. The alternative is to click and hold the left mouse button to bring up a red direction arrow over Guybrush. Dragging the mouse in this mode will make Guybrush walk steadily in whatever direction the mouse is moving toward. It's still a bit twitchy, and it would be nice if you didn't have to hold the left button down; but there's still plenty of time for the development team to figure it out.
Are they insane? what about point and click? since when didnt that work anymore?
I guess they´re trying to find something that works just as well on a console controller, but wth..
cant we just keep point and click to move? I suppose if he walks to the object you try to interact with it might work, but it´d suck to use WASD to move and get "cant reach" when you click something you´re not close enough to..

That's what they said they were doing to Sam & Max next time so they could bring it to consoles (other than the Wii).

Grim Fandango is proof that point and click isn't totally necessary for a great adventure game but it does change the feel of the game a lot.

IMO opinion both Grim and MI4 would have been easier to play with point and click really.
I enjoyed them both, but it´s a real hassle moving about.

Cant be that hard to retain a point and click interface on PC versions, and whatever other sort of madness they want for consoles, and as a option for PC (for when you just want to lie on the couch to play)

It'd be nice if they included options for both, but I doubt they will for some reason...

Yeah, both would be good... but they will likely pick one or the other.

Sam and Max just came out on XBLA with point and click controls, using the analog stick like a mouse, and I thouht it worked just fine. That's me though.

Monkey Island Creator to Keynote at PAX 2009
Quote:
PAX 2009 organizers announced that industry legend Ron Gilbert, known as the creator of Monkey Island, will grace the stage as keynote speaker at the sixth annual gaming festival to be held Sept. 4-6 at the Washington State Convention and Trade Center.
Hopefully MISE will be released long before that. Can't wait!
