Aye, buccaneers.
I want to present you a very important project, something we built with a lot of patience, passion, and after a lot of work and research.

LAST TALES OF MONKEY ISLAND is an episodic novel (with illustrations) which purpose is ending the storyline in the Monkey Island Saga, and giving at last a sequel to TALES OF MONKEY ISLAND.
It's some kind of unofficial “Tales of Monkey Island Season Two”, and the achievement of the plot needed a lot of months for studying Monkey Island characters, psychologies, storylines, humour, etc.
Then, I want to give a very, very big thank you to Dave Grossman, because I wrote him on facebook, I sent him some part of the plot, and he gave me some precious idea and advice about the story, making it more complete and interesting. Thanks, man, you're great!

This project had a respectable success among the Italian fandom (in Italy we published five episodes and ended the Part I), and now I decided to work with a translator and to present it to the international fandom. I hope you will like it, too.

So far I will give you some link and four promotional posters. First episode is translated in english yet, but we will begin wih an episodic publication (maybe weekly) only when we will have three or four complete episodes.

Some poster (mixed original-not original art. The final art of the project will be fully original):

And some little disclaimer: this project is no way affiliated with Telltale, LucasArts, or wants to replace an official Season Two. On the contrary, whenever and wherever the Telltale wants to take from this project part of the plot, of the situations, of the characters, of the dialog lines, I would be only glad of it.

Thank you to everybody, we will start soon!

  • Hi guys.

    I'm also part of this great project: I first heard of it on Facebook and when I found out they wanted to do an English version, I put my name forward.

    I've been studying English for years and I also took a Cambridge exam two years ago (that's CAE, I don't know if you've ever heard of it...) and now I study Foreign Languages at the university.

    As for the translation... I know that, since I'm not a native speaker, it's going to be hard to translate everything in a perfectly fluent English, but I'll do my best, because I'm proud of being part of this wonderful project. I understand what you mean when you say that a bad translation can ruin a well written story: I can assure you that I always check my writing, not only to avoid spelling and grammar mistakes, but also to make sure I'm using the appropriate register and vocabulary. I usually look up the expressions in the dictionary if I don't know them already, and then...well, translating such a saga calls into play a lot of creativity. You'll realize that puns and rhymes sometimes cannot be translated literally, so I'll take my liberties here and there...

    So all I can do now is to wish you a good reading. Follow us!
  • Who did your backgrounds?
  • Some of them are ripped backgrounds from Bill Tiller Art, some of them are by an italian artist named Federico Davide.

    However, a very important thing:

    First Episode of Part I, "The Last Inhabitant of Scabb Island", will be available on March 25th

    Then, every episode will be published on the 5th, the 15th and the 25th of every month, until the end of the Part I, divided in five episodes
