The best thing you can do is stick around the MI fan community so that LucasArts knows that there's a lot of people who would buy another MI game. :)

But on the other hand MI5 might be in production anyway! Keep your eyes on http://www.scummbar.com for MI5 news, and take a look at http://www.scummbar.com/games/monkey5/ for a summary of everything we know so far. :)

I check scummbar.com every day(it's my start page) hoping that it will say: MI5 officaly announced: realese date: tommorow...

Well...since Sam & Max 2 will be released in May, I think it would be quite easy for Lucasarts to make a new Monkey Island on the same engine. All you then need is a story, new artwork, and new voices.

Skinkie
03-04-2004, 03:18 AM
Nope, LucasArts just cancelled Sam and Max, we might as well surrender the chances of them ever releasing another adventure game. Shoot me, just shoot me.

It's been tried, but then the Lucas Lawyers come put you down for license infringement.

Then we could... um... er... Door Hinge?... no no... Then offer Lucasarts to make it for them, for free!

James Isaac
03-04-2004, 06:03 PM
Yes. Now that Sam & Max 2 has been cancelled with that press release... I'd say that the chances of another adventure game are very very slim. But, because it's monkey island, exceptions might be made.

Maybe they could sell the rights.
After Naughty Dog stopped making 'Crash Bandicoot', the rights became the property of Universal interactive. So you get people like Vivendi making Crash games now.
They arent as good, but they keep the characters alive.

What about making (grim fandango 2), Monkey Island 5 and Sam & Max 2 ''in one''?

The annoying thing is that it isnt just lucasarts it's all these companies who are discontinuing adventure games I mean it would be great to see more sequels or fresh ideas on the same guide lines but the good old adventure game is just not what people seem to want it's games like the sims and other simulations! :mad:

Of course, we are now entering a Catch 22... Adventure games are not being released because the market doesn't seem interested in new ones... while market sales are lower due to the fact that there aren't many new adventure games released.

Kinda crummy, if you ask me. Someone's gotta break out of that mold, and I see no better candidate than MI5 (or perhaps Grim Fandango 2)!!!

wait, why isn't stop motion possible in a game. I mean theretically it's just like a sprite. Every move would have to be set agianst a blue screen and then cut out. And moved across a background. It would have a extreamly cool style also. they did it in Neverhood right?

Also, why is it Dumb?

Joshi
04-30-2004, 08:35 AM
Of course stop motion works theatrically, in things like the movies and TV, they follow a certain path and the people making it know what they're going to do. In a game, it's more dynamic than that and people can't be sure of what people will do, where they will move and so on. In order to compensate for every eventuality you'll need stop motion animation for every move that's possible in the game and considering stop motion takes bloody ages anyway to do about five seconds of animation, no one would be that patient. This is why it is easier to used 3D models in 3D environments, it just makes sense and isn't... dumb.

Also, we can't make LA do an MI5, we can just wait for them to decide to start making it. Of course at that point I'll be starting the count down poll to when they cancel production (my bet being that they actually will cancel it so if I lose, I still get a game in the end).

I can't see any reason Lucasarts haven't yet brought out MI5. They must have got enough sales from the first 4 to encourage them to bring out a fifth. And its obvious that they planned to bring out a fifth whilst they were making the fourth, as voodoo lady says she has an unbreakable 5 game contract.

Skinkie
05-08-2004, 12:27 PM
Why must people obsess over that little one liner? They had no plans, they just figured, hey if this sells well enough then maybe we'll make another, oh boy prophecy come true, if not, then hey look at the irony.

And the reason they haven't made it yet is now is not the proper time to release a graphic adventure. Or so they say.

Neikron
06-07-2004, 04:03 PM
They better make another one. But its been talked about a lot. At least there has been nothing on scrapping it. If they scrap it, I will never associate with Lucasarts again. Not even seeing their movies or buying anymore games...I'll hate them forever!

*Whispers* maybe they bought that...;) hahaha, now they'll make a new one for sure.

Skinkie
06-08-2004, 01:42 AM
Actually the company who makes the movies is not really intertwined with the one who makes games. One is LucasArts, the other is LucasFilm. George Lucas owns them both, but they don't really work together. So you can still see the movies. If you don't see anything done by George Lucas's companys than anything ILM works on should be out too, so that almost every movie with special effects. Hows this for political correctness?

Joshi
06-09-2004, 04:59 PM
Lucasfilms will probably provide a small amount of fundage for other films not associated with Lucasfilms in any way and they'd be out.

So you're basically stuck with a lot of artsy foreign films and crappy student work.

Also Star Wars ep3 will be out as well as Indy4. I'm not saying they're gonna be the best most unmissiable filmes in the world, but they are widely anticipated.

And also, you post had no effect whatsoever considering I doubt any of the LA staff come here as this is a fan site.

I think it´s quite wierd that they dont relase a Mi5... Nearly all I have spoken too says that they like Adventure games and that Monkey island are the best! Also Grim Fandango is an awsome game! If they would release a Mi5 i would buy it without thinking! =) Nothing new on any adventure games comming soon?

Skinkie
06-14-2004, 04:41 PM
If you wanna know about all the upcoming adventure games out there this website (http://www.adventuregamers.com) is really the place you should look. There are alot of promising titles coming soon.

Joshi
06-14-2004, 06:11 PM
Unfortunatly, none coming from LucasArts.

The two adventure games that they were producing got cancelled because they were afraid not enough people would buy them, and they're partly right, the action game or strategy game fanbase is a hell of a lot bigger than the adventur game fanbase. Old classics are good and all, but Escape From Monkey Island showed LucasArts that they were losing their touch and so they took a step back from adventure games abd probably won't revisit it for a while.

The most promising adventure game set to come out from any company currently would be 'The Longest Journey 2', as it's predecessor was awsome and this is being made by the same guy, so expect a pretty good game.

No one is gonna believe you without major major proof, and I'm willing to bet you don't have it.

07-27-2004, 01:32 PM
1st: Please stop saying that MI5 is announced.... It isn't and that sucks....

And then........................... Back on topic (W00t!) :

Point is we can't do anything? Which also sucks! Please LucasArts, make MI5, GF2 and S&M 2! Please! We will all buy at least one copy of the game! Don't worry you'll earn lots of cash! Have you read the letter to you @ scummbar.com ? You should, it is interesting... Now just make the game(s) right? Remember that the Voodoo Lady can sue you, cause she has an un-breakable five game contract, you will never win that case! Then you will loose money instead of making money by releasing MI5! Nice point huh?

Skinkie
07-28-2004, 01:28 AM
Hate to tell you this, but I kinda doubt LucasArts employees pass through our humble forums too often. Especially the future of an adventure game area as they really couldn't care less about their fans. How I hate them.

Rapp Scallion
07-30-2004, 02:04 PM
I don't want MI5. Seriously, I don't! I would have wanted it if there was another company making it, but LucasArts will never ever sell the rights as long as they still are making money from it. I don't want MI5 by LucasArts because LucasArts suck big time. And I don't want a sucky company to make another sequel to, in my opinion, one of the best game-series of all time. All I want now is Sam'n'Max 2. If they bring it back, I will still have some bad feelings against them, but then I can trust LucasArts to make another MI again. But they will never do anything like that. Making a decision that will make everybody hate them is one thing to do. But they would never admit that they're wrong about Sam'n'Max.

I'm sorry that this turned into a "bring Sam'n'Max back" post. But I mean it. I don't want MI5 when things are like they are now. I would have buyed it, yes, but I would not be able to enjoy it as much as I could if LucasArts hadn't cancelled Sam'n'Max 2.

So the only thing I want to do to make them make MI5 is to encourage everybody to keep mailing letters about Sam'n'Max. It won't make them think about making MI5, but my hope is that someone will see the enormous mistake they have made, and bring Sam'n'Max 2 back in production. And perhaps they will make MI5 afterwards. But I don't want a MI5 before they have admitted that they're wrong.

-Rapp Scallion

(Wow, this was getting longer that I meant to. Sorry:) )

Edit: And I might add: I don't want a GF2. GF1 was perfect and ended the story nicely. A second one just wouldn't be the same. And LucasArts would just screw it up.

MAN, I hate LucasArts!

I know, let's make voodoo dolls of the FucasArts staff and then tear their legs off and refuse to stitch them back along UNLESS we get Sam & Max:Freelance Police(and maybe Monkey Island 5)in return!

Amen!

So now all we need is:
Something of head,
something of thread,
something of body,

I hope they really do make a Monkey island 5 it would be awesome maybe a recreation of the first 1 in a shiny new coat with extras. That's what they did too doom 3 if iD did that than lucas arts can do mi 5 and it will be awesome no doubt about it.

I don't think that's true. They're perfectly willing to make one and spend lots of money on it. It's the whole "releasing" part that appears to create the problems.
