A brand new writer in the fields, Fatima has been taken under my electric spark's RGB- rich and ensures she doesn't engage in excessive snark on the website. It's unclear what command and Conquer are; however, she can talk for hours about the odd rhythm games, hardware, product reviews, and MMOs that were popular in the 2000s. Fatima has been creating various announcements, previews, and other content while here, but particularly enjoys writing regarding Products' latest news in the market she's currently addicted to. She is likely talking to an additional blogger with her current obsession right now.

It was big news when Return to Monkey Island was announced in April, helmed by original Monkey Island co-conspirators Ron Gilbert and Dave Grossman. Now, thanks to a trailer revealed during yesterday’s Nintendo Direct, it’s time to get our first look at some actual gameplay.

Not everyone was enamored with the new art style in the Return to Monkey Island reveal: Some longtime fans expressed disappointment that it didn’t have a more overtly retro look, like Terrible Toybox’s previous point-and-click adventure, Thimbleweed Park. Personally, I think it’s a good fit: Modernized, as you’d expect after 30 years of technological progress, but also distinctly, well, weird, as a game like this should be.

We’ve also now got a bit more on what the game is actually about, and as usual it doesn’t sound like things are going very smoothly for poor Guybrush. Here’s what the website has to say:

“It’s been many years since Guybrush Threepwood was last locked in a battle of wits with his nemesis, the zombie pirate LeChuck. His true love, Elaine Marley, has turned her focus away from governing and Guybrush himself is adrift and unfulfilled, having never found the Secret of Monkey Island. Hip, young pirate leaders led by Captain Madison have shuffled the old guard from power, Melee Island has taken a turn for the worse, and famed businessman Stan has been imprisoned for ‘marketing-related crimes.”

Speaking of ethically-flexible salesman Stan S. Stanman, this stretch in the slammer has given him some extra free time, and he’ss willing to spend some of it on chat and banter by way of a classic point-and-click conversation on the updated Return to Monkey Island website.

It’s predictably silly but there’s real information salted in there too, including that the updated art is being handled by Rex Crowle, who previously worked on games including Psychonauts 2 and Knights and Bikes, while music is coming from original Monkey Island 2 composers Michael Land, Peter McConnell, and Clint Bajakian. Original Guybrush Threepwood voice actor Dominic Armato is also returning to the role.

And speaking of Dominic Armato, it turns out that he digs the new look too.

Unfortunately, we still don’t have a release date for Return to Monkey Island, although it’s expected to be out sometime this year. Pricing hasn’t been announced either, but despite some age advice from long ago, you can be pretty sure it’s going to cost more than $20. Inflation, you know.
