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).

The Wolf Among Us isn't crying wolf with this accolades trailer

The first season of The Wolf Among Us may be over, but there's still one more trailer to indulge in. The quotes included in Episode 5's accolades trailer are technically only about Cry Wolf, but they seem pretty universal as far as the season goes. Tour de force? Genuinely moving? One hell of a ride? Yeah, that sounds like The Wolf Among Us in a nutshell.more

Ron Gilbert releases original design document of Maniac Mansion

I absolutely love the SCUMM period of Lucasfilm Games (later LucasArts) development and this document gives insight into the game that started it all. It's interesting to see that although the Edison family stayed much the sa...more

Review: The Walking Dead Season 2: Amid the Ruins

The last episode of The Walking Dead was probably my favorite one yet -- and that's including all of Lee's tale from the first season. Clem has made the switch from tough to full-on badass depending on your choices, and ...more
