Suggestions for the Collector's DVD

Mock-up cover. Sexy isn't it?[/CENTER]

So we're already in 2010 and just can't wait for that promised Tales of Monkey Island Collector's DVD.

I've been thinking about what would it have and probably some people are still holding their fingers back on that checkout button, so I compiled a little list of things I'd like to see on the upcoming DVD (having in mind low production costs and package size).
  • Steve Purcell's art as the cover
    Just making sure it's going to be the official cover. That or a classic cover art like the previous MI games. Sorry Telltale but that first render of Guybrush still looks awful, the shading makes him look horribly weird.

  • Higher quality speech
    Some lines of dialog would benefit from less compression.

  • Higher quality textures
    Same here, there were times that the textures seemed way to pixelated and blurry.

  • Official Soundtrack (either digital or on a CD)
    Please yes! I won't lie, I've used a tool to extract some music out of Tales of MI and I can't stop listening to them. So obviously, I'd love actual, official, longer versions of tunes like swordfight.ogg. ;)

  • Official Artwork (digital format)
    Since asking for a artbook would be too much, I'd love to have high resolution artwork in the DVD. Please? Pretty please? Please pretty please with sugar on top?

  • And finally (and wishfully)... Steve Purcell's Poster
    Because I'm a bit baffled that the unsigned posters costs nearly as much as two episodes together... No offense to Steve Purcell's work, it's a piece of art, but some people have to pay extra to have for such a small poster shipped. :( (my room's walls are filled with movie size posters)

Newly added:
  • The official deck of tarot cards (added by Indrid Cold)


  • Commentaries, making of and behind the scenes videos (added by Irishmile)


  • Outtake reel (added by Scrawffler)


  • Every episode of I Wonder What Happens (added by pluizig)
So... could the Telltale team please stand up and give us a small peek at what people will get for buying or upgrading to the full season?

And what do you, Monkey Islanders, would like to see in your Collector's DVD? Have in mind that Telltale's probably not going to ship anything more than a DVD within a plastic case, but you can be extravagant if you wish. :P

  • I second the request for a soundtrack. I'd like it included with the Collector's DVD if possible, but even if they have to be sold separately like with Sam and Max, I'd still appreciate it.
  • I'd be more in favour of the Soundtrack being sold as separate.
  • I know it is impossible, but it would be lovely a copy of all 4 original games and Tales in a single treasure chest like box, with many small useless things Monkey Island related (like the pins)...

    The only way such thing will feel complete is if Murray is in it :)
  • I have a suggestion.

    Glaring graphical bugs fixed, pretty please. Such as the pyrite parrot re-appearing after meltdown and doors being left behind when ships sail away.

    Though freebies are nice too. =)

    Haha, oh, oh here's another, A Murray paperweight. Haha.

    You know what would be great?

    A Map... one signed by Winslow
    This.
  • Run from DVD/Minimal installation - I know most people here have massive hard drives, but from what I can tell, each of the Chapters requires a separate install (that's a lot of space in the end!). I hope that isn't the case with the DVD version, and would only require you to to have space for only the savegames (there would still be an option to install everything in your harddrive). It would be great if even netbooks can run it, too.
  • Honestly everything I posted before were just suggestions, so to be honest, I don't care really because I got a new Monkey Island game.

    I have a lot of things I hope for, but in the end whatever is there I'll be happy with. Sure I'd love to see maps in the intro, or usable dialogue options, but the game won't be any worse for me if it's not there.

    All of them installed at once is only 1.3gb, that's not really much (a lot of netbooks come with 160gb HDDs afaik). Running from DVD would make them run pretty poorly imo.

    I doubt they are going to change everything to make it run from DVD somehow, and you could run it from your netbook so long as it meets the system requirements. Again, they aren't going to remake the games so that lesser machines can run them.

    My 2 pieces of eight. (sad, sad, sad...) :guybrush:

    That's one drawback. Not only do you install five separate games, you will install most of what makes these five games five times. The engine, the music, the game models, everything that is re-used will have to be installed so many times.

    That should be changed...
