That’s right, you are not dreaming. Ask someone beside you to pinch (or punch) you if you don’t believe me. The greatest game of all time is coming back to us by the hands of LucasArts and TellTale. Not only we’ll get a remake with neat features and graphics of the first adventure in the Monkey Island series, we’ll also have new 5 episodes.
Check the official page of the The Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition: http://www.lucasarts.com/games/monkeyisland/ the new screenshots and a video of the people involved in the project.

TellTale will be continuing to deliver us great adventure games and after reviving the classic Sam and Max, they’ll revive the mythic Monkey Island. We’ll get 5 new episodes (http://www.telltalegames.com/monkeyisland) starting in 7 July and it seems the “creator” itself (aka Ron) was also involved in these episodes. You can pre-order it now and if you want a discount coupon for the TellTale store, here’s one: 3PD-XNB-8Z7-M2K
Ron Gilbert has also commented this in his blog where he talked about some interesting things about the design/production of the first game. Check it here: http://grumpygamer.com/8280380
I thank you LucasArts and TellTale for bringing this great game to life again. (As if it was dead…)
