"If you're wondering about Indiana Jones or any other LucasFilm properties, by the way, wonder no more: according to an EA spokesperson, this agreement is for Star Wars only.
LucasFilm confirmed that. "Regarding the other titles, no titles are being announced at this time but we are considering all of our options," a LucasFilm spokesperson told Kotaku. "The deal with EA is for the Star Wars franchise only." "

Well, Telltale, THIS is the right moment to ask rights, I think.
But my fear is: is it the right moment FOR YOU?

  • It would be nice to know if Telltale is still interested in the MI license if it's available.
    I guess not but the hope is the last one to die...
  • Agree with Bloody Eugene!
  • Telltale, for the love of SCUMM, do SOMETHING. Walking Dead was great, Fables looks like it will be great, but don't forget your roots. There are many more stories to be told in the world of Monkey Island! As Abe Lincoln said in Sam and Max 104, the time to act is now!
  • Something tells me we might be in for a surprise if Lucasarts is considering doing something with the other franchises.
  • If they do sell Monkey Island, I'd rather it go to Ron Gilbert than anyone else. It's his baby, and nobody would treat it better than him.

    Monkey Island, huh.

    If they can get Indiana Jones for a new full fledged adventure game, the first after FoA, how cool would that be.

    Unfortunately, as Dan has put it, that's "not a huge focus for Telltale right now". But who, I ask you, who else could pull that off satisfactorily?

    I don't see ONE other company around which could. Not one.

    I'd say Double Fine, but they wouldn't be interested either...

    Maybe some German company like Daedalic Entertainment?
  • That is just PR speak for.. "meh"

    Ah well, Animation Arts did well with "Lost Horizon" and King Art did well with "The Book of Unwritten Tales"... Daedalic seems to be too busy anyway, but there ARE options.

    Still, I'm dying for Tales 2, so DO THAT TELLTALE, GORRAM IT!!!!

    Daedalic doing MI or Indy...




    ... let me think about that. For a while. :cool:

    Not sure Ms. Kesterton would be up to it. But I might be wrong and we might still never find out.
