Monkey Island

Found 28th Apr 2007
Does anyone not wish they would bring out a new Monkey Island ?

I used to love this game on the Pc and there isnt anything out there like it, and with the 360's power i bet it would great and play good on the console.

I already wrote a message on their forum at LucasArts but got a reply of "do you really know how much money that would cost?"
Apparently it would cost well over 5 million to produce a new monkey island game.:-(

just read this on the site:

" Monkey Island 5 is currently not in production, at least that's what LucasArts says. However, former PR manager, Tom Sarris, has confirmed on several occasions that there definitely will be a Monkey Island 5 sometime in the future.

On behalf of WMI, Marek of Adventure Gamers fame, was kind enough to ask Tom Sarris a few questions at E3, May 2002.

Is it possible that we will see a Monkey Island 5 in the future or have you definitely closed the book on that franchise?

They are definitely going to make Monkey Island 5 since it is their most popular franchise. However, we shouldn't expect it in the near future."

ah well fingers crossed! bring back monkey island humour !!!

yeh discworld, that was a class game lol

It'd be cool to have the original Monkey Island on Xbox Live Arcade :]

im sure they will bring out a new monkey island, look at the graphics and what the game play would be like now, either on ps3 or the xyboxy

then there was grim fandango

Guybrush threepwood hehe what a name.

swapping between 11 disks on the Amiga was a bit of a pain though

That was monkey Island 2, Monkey Island 1 was 4 disks as I recall.

The sword fighting was great:
I'm not going to take your insolence sitting down!

Your hemorrhoids are flaring up again, eh?

Original Poster

lol ^ the sword one was great

the one where you knocked the skull off the bit of wood at the start was the best monkey island

Curse of Monkey Island, I'm busy playing that now, bought it off ebay just the other day. Can't get used to the controls like so different to the previous 2. Busy bidding on escape rom Monkey Island too at the moment.

was Curse of Monkey Island the last one made? im sure thats the last one i played and if there is another one out ill be damned if im not going to play it lol

Escape from Monkey Island is the last of the 4 current games. Curse of Monkey Island is number 3.

WHAT !!! you mean to say i havent played them all ?????

where do i get this?
will it work on my comp?

it wont run on Xp will it ...NNOOoooooo !!!!!

i have the booty pack and 4 separate (all run on xp).
I remember back in the day playing monkey island on my Amiga 1200,beating the zombie lechuck,being teleported about through the sewers .

However i found 4 really poor,the whole monkey combat is a pain in the arse and nothing like insult sword fighting.It was really annoying remebering which button combinations did each move and what beats what.I also hated the way it was all 3D.It didnt seem as fun as the other games.Personally i prefer it as a point and click side scrolling game e.g monkey 1,2 and 3.So if they made a 5 the same as number 4 ,i would be very dissapointed.

add-man please tell me how on earth you manage to run them all on Xp plus where did you get them all?

i have Monkey 1 and 2 on amiga.
But i bought monkey 3 as soon as it came out on PC.
But i then bought the monkey island bounty pack.(1,2 and 3)
I then bought monkey 4 when it came out.

To run 1,2 they include a exe.but i use Scumm.
However 3 will install but the cut scenes are speeded up.So i run this in Scumm as well and it works perfectly.
4 works on its own without scumm

you fight like a dairy farmer.

How appropriate, you fight like a cow!

I still use these insults to people.... generally et some funny looks but the ocassional person knows what im on about.

I love all these games, sam n max is my favourite followed by indiana jones then the monkey island games

:giggle: haven't heard that in ages i might have to get it again just for the silly insults .

I loved these games. Can't believe saxo started this thread and hsan't even played the 4th one... it's the one in 3D! I found the movement a bit difficult to get used to.

Original Poster

yeh but isnt that one the one where you knock the skull off at the start ??

i though that bit was really funny, blasting the skeletons in the boats with your cannon hehe

No thats the Curse of Monkey Island (3) I'm busy playing that now. At the start of Escape from monkey island it's something to do with a big catapult as I recall.

I've never played any of them. Hadn't even heard of them are they really that good?

another classic


Did anyone play Grim Fandango?

I've played all the Lucasfilm/Lucasarts games. I love them especially Monkey Island ^_^ Grim Fandango is a very cool game but I never actually completed it o.o I think I got to disc 2. Maybe I should go back and play it again sometime

I didn't like the latest Monkey Island, it wasn't as playable as the first ones.

Although I think I spent more time playing Leisure Suit Larry.....
