I just found out that Telltale Games, the gaming company behind the Sam and Max games and the Homestar Runner game series Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People, signed a deal with LucasArts to produce a five-game series called Tales of Monkey Island, AND are going to be remaking the original, Secret of Monkey Island, “Extended Edition”!
Fucking well fine by me. I normally abhor game remakes, as they strip the charm from a game and replace it with “art”. But Telltale has built up a lot of goodwill with me for their handling of both of the mentioned game series they’ve done thus far. They’ve done other stuff I haven’t yet tried, but I have every intention of playing it all. And hell, I’ll go so far as to say that if I were to try to pursue a career in gaming, I’d love to have their name on my resume.
