Carnival of Monkey Island is a fanmade, hand-drawn sequel

Please don't Cease and Desist this, Disney!

I want a new Monkey Island. So does some guy on the Adventure Game Studio forum, who announced Carnival of Monkey Island, which is a fanmade entry that will take place inbetween the second and third MI games (is that a midquel? a post-prequel?). Even better, it is being made in the style of Curse of Monkey Island with gorgeous hand-drawn visuals.

With MI creator Ron Gilbert struggling to convince Disney to let him get his grubby mits on his baby, I have my doubts that Disney will let this project pass. It doesn't help that these indie developers are under the belief that Telltale owns the license. Also, protip: Don't call a developer's games "crap" when you are trying to get the license from them.

I hope Disney does turn a blind eye and these developers follow through, as a new MI in the style of my favorite entry sounds like a warm can of peaches to me (i.e. I enjoy warm peaches).
