Question:
If someone went back and redid the first two monkey islands in the style of curse of monkey island would you still want to play them? Has anyone tried doing this before already? (yeah you can tell I'm new here)

Oh and what did you guys think of Guybrush undertaking a facial change in Escape of Monkey Island.

*ponderous material*

Would play it out of curiosity, but not set out to like it for numerous reasons that I've gone into detail with before in another thread. If I can find it, I'll quote it, but not now.
No ones yet tried to do this (and I think legal matters would prohibit any would-be fangame maker doing it)
And personally, I didn't like the face change. Somewhere around here is a recent thread of someone who, for fun, did a clay model of Guybrush's head from CMI. I think that would have been better as teh 3D Guybrush. If you go to the Fan Stuff forum, I think it's under 'Guybrush's Bust' or something like that. Looks great. But EMI was a dissapointment in so many ways, i never think a game should be so frustrating that you don't want to play it anymore and yet, it's tediousness did this entirely.

I would love a remake of Monkeys Island 1 and 2, I would like it to be in Full 2D but with photo realistic Graphics the Characters, Scenery. Also added Voice-overs and upgraded Music similar to the music in Monkeys Island 2. I would like Guybrush Threepwood to look like he did in Monkeys Island 2 with blue jacket and brown hair. If there will be a remake of Monkeys Island 1 and 2 I Donít Know I guess there is always a possibility.

I didnít like Guybrush's facial change in Escape of Monkey Island the graphics were very basic and Guybrush Threepwood looked more like a pansy than a pirate. I preferred how he looked in Monkeys Island 2.

I am still against this, but even if they did do it, why would you want him to look the same in both games. The blue jacket thing in MI2 is meant to be a mark of his wealth suince the last game, the raggedy white shirt in the first game is meant to portray his poverty at the beginning. it wouldn't make sense to have him wear the same thing throughout, especially the blue jaket in the first game.

I think Guybrush Threepwood looked his best ever in Monkeys Island 2. Guybrush didnít wear the white shirt as a sign of poverty of course he was poor in Monkeys Island 1 that was the storyline but the white shirt was just a white shirt. In Monkeys Island 4 he was wearing a white shirt and yet he is married to Elaine Marley-Threepwood governor Marley of MÍlťe, Booty and Plunder Island he lives in a Mansion and is richer beyond his wildest dreams.

The white shirt was white and not dirty so he obviously has enough money to get it washed at Mad Marty's and it looks like an expensive designer shirt to me. Maybe he bought his coat from Marks an Spenserís. Joshi I think your thinking to deep Its a story game its not real.

Maybe the white shirt was to symbolise that he was good and pure un like other characters in the game. To make him stand out.

Responding to the thread author, I would play them, but only if the team that was responsible for CMI did it. Some fan doing things how he interprets them could turn out very nastily, especially if they were to get confused with the plot and stuff (which can get a bit confusing with MI2 in particular).

By the way, for those that missed it on TSB..

Okay, so you're pretty much repeating yourself here, so I'm just gonna sum up. MI2, expensive jacket, loadsa money, MI1, no expensive jacket, nothing to his name. To me that makes sense. I can't see why it doesn't to you.

The way it works is when your working with a limited color palatte you pick a color shirt that's easy and will not conflict with your backgrounds. The way it works is because the production team didn't have much money Guybrush had to wear a white shirt. Then after the game was released and LucasArts became rich beyond their wildest imaginations they put Guybrush through the same 'right of passage' and gave him big fancy more dificult to create outfits and loads of cash, same as the employees of the company at that time. In fact the whole Monkey Island series is sort of an autobiography of several key members of the staff. They were actually pirates and have chosen to spread their story to the world in the form of a game where the main characters clothes represent their growth.


But the real point is that MI2 remake in CMI style looked incredible.

Pixels donít cost money and the jacket is not very difficult to create. I create Monkey Island characters for fun using the same technique as they did then.

The whole Jacket idea was actually Guybrush Threepwoods transition from Monkey Island 1 Guybrush Threepwood wana be pirate to Monkey Island 2 Guybrush Threepwood Mighty Pirate.

Dude, why the hell would you want to see MI1 and 2 re-made?

They're two pretty much perfect games that are still totally playable. They've stood the test of the time and will continue to do so. There are often new fans, who aren't deterred by the dated look of the games. That's because it's dated but brilliant. Why would you try to improve on the art in Monkey Island 2? It's awesome! Likewise the MIDI music.

For me, playing an old game is never unenjoyable because of old technology. Technology is just so unimportant to real gameplay. A remake that just re-did what had been done with 'nicer' graphics and a recorded orchestra would just be an exercise in pointlessness. The ultimate appealing factor in any game, gameplay, would either remain the same, or become worse.

I really don't think SoMI or MI2 being turned into CoMI lookalikes or anything else 'newer' is necessary or even a good idea. It wouldn't work well.

As for the idea of making either of the first two games with photo-realistic graphics, you must have been smoking some bad granola. I think that would look awful and wrong.

It a novel idea, and would be interesting to see, but I think it's pointless. They already look great, and unique.

As for his face change in EMI, uh, he changed in all the games. I don't just mean clothes and facial hair, but his face changed. In each game, guybrush changed in the same way that the art style changed. MI2 Guybrush looks a lot like MI1 Guybrush because the styles changed. Then in MI3 he's a lot taller and skinnier with a long face, and in MI4, the style changed a lot again, and so did his face.

About his MI2 coat. In MI1, he was a wannabe pirate who just shows up on an island with nothing but aspirations. Then he becomes famous after becoming a pirate and defeating LeChuck, the most fearsome pirate ever who also is a GHOST. He's famous, wants to show maturity, so he grows a beard, and gets a coat with the vast ricfhes he's aqcuired from his fame. This whole concept should be obvious to anyone who isn't retarded.

GuyBrush Threepwood's face change in MI2 was him growing up from MI1 young boy in to a teenager in MI2. I preferred the more realistic and detailed Guybrush Threepwood he looked more like a mighty pirate in MI2, now Lucasarts have made Guybrush Threepwood looks more like wimp than a Mighty Pirate I hope they change him back to how he looked in MI2.

Sorry, which book is this?

And also, didn't I say that? I believe it was you who said he should wear the jacket in both games and me who said that the jacket stood for how much wealth he had at the begionning of the second game so wouldn't make sense in the first.

I don't know if I'd need to see MI1 & 2 re-made (as they're pretty nifty as they are!), but I'd certainly be interested in seeing the results... although, I liked the earlier idea of re-making EMI!

It's such a shame with EMI... I just really feel the 3D really detracted from what could have been. Dom was still fab, and Elaine looked pretty good in 3D. But, Guybrush just didn't seem the same.

It's weird, actually. As Grim really worked well in 3D. Maybe 3D wasn't right for EMI as it didn't fit in with the tone of the game, or perhaps we're just so used to seeing MI in it's previous forms, that it was just such a huge deviation to get used to...?

Oh, and that pic Thrik posted is GORGEOUS! :)

No 'Memoirs of Guybrush Threepwood' was published.

Sorry, but the fact tyhat you can't get your facts right does annoy me somewhat.

That said, yes, I should not have said that and the offending material has been edited out of good will. I apologise.

But, just to clarify, there is no Memoirs of Guybrush Threepwood. This was made up by the game designers as something to put on the back of the boxes. No bookshop will sell it if it's a fan creation, that would be against copywright laws and LucasArts would sue. Any free fan creation on the web is irrelevent as to someones status as a fan of the games. If they've played the games and like it they're a fan.

Also, would you please be kind enough to direct me to a full Monkey Island comic on the web as I am sure that none have been published for sale or otherwise but would be interested in seeing a full one on the web.

I might actually be willing to do that, but couldn't you just scan them? Would that be any "less legal?"

All the old LucasArts adventure games had those cool "narration-style" walkthroughs in their hint books. Maniac Mansion had "The Tour of Maniac Mansion" narrated by Dave Miller, and was a possible solution with the Dave, Bernard, Michael combo. Zak, Indy3, and Loom had narration walkthroughs as well (starring Zak, Indy, and Bobbin naturally). Monkey 1 and 2 had the memoirs. They were all really good reads. I never had the CMI or EMI hint books, so could anyone tell me if those contain full memoirs as well, or were they limited to the back of the box quotes at that point?

Anyway, tell me if you can't do scans and I'll start typing them out (the first two games).

No seriously, I don't own either of those game's, I'm more of an adventure gamer (hence Monkey island, although I do branch out to good games like The Longest Journey and syberia and have almost finished Beyond Good and Evil, which, whilst not a graphic adventure of sort's, has a puzzel quality to it, a nice story and nice gameplay).

If MI5 came out with Multiplayer capabilities, I would still play it and may try the Mutiplayer part of it, for fun. If it was strictly a Multiplayer game, I may try it out, but would be skeptical as to how much of a real MI game it is and wouldn't have very high hopes for being entertained.

If Monkeys Island 5 was a Multiplayer game like Starwars Galaxies I also would be skeptical. Because as a multiplayer Online Monkeys Island Game we would have to create the story and who would get to be Guybrus, becasuse most of us would love to be him.

My biggest worry would be the fact that StarWars Galaxies game charge you a big monthly fee to play the game.I would not be happy if Monkeys Island Online also charged a monthly fee.

Yes, as does every game thats made. It would be a great game if they got it right. There is no way you could let any of the main characters be playable (The Matrix Online is taking this approach). They could let you meet these characters in certain missions. Also, I can't see I can't see it being anything like the original games because it wouldn't work. It would have to be co-oppritive with plenty of sword fighting and trading.

They could let you meet these characters in certain missions. Also, I can't see I can't see it being anything like the original games because it wouldn't work. It would have to be co-oppritive with plenty of sword fighting and trading.
Yea that what I think the main characters in a Monkeys Island Multiplayer online game would have to be computer controlled. Because if we were all Guybrush Threepwood or Le Chuck we would get confused.

If Monkeys Island 5 was a Multiplayer online game and it had similar graphics to Strawars Galaxies or Everquest 2 them type of games give you a the choice of a first person camera view. I would but quite excited to see what Woodtick, Phatt and Dinky Island or Le Chucks Castle would look like thro the eyes of lets say Gubrush Threepwood.

Again the only worry would be if Lucas arts would charge a big monthly fee to use the game like they do with Starwars Galaxies.

That's what I've been told when I offered to make "LucasArts Soundtracks"... I am still waiting for my paycheck.

Wait... this is the wrong forum!

You should laugh if I finish the two I'm doing within a month.

I think all the narrative walkthroughs for the older adventure games were brilliant. I know a lot of people haven't had the pleasure of reading them because they never had a copy of the hint book.

Just to update you guys who have been waiting patiently: the Memoirs for Monkey1 has been completely typed and I'm in the progress of formatting/correcting as well as typing up Monkey2. I also want to ask once more anyone who has the hint books for CMI or EMI if they include full memoirs as well (remember, I'm only doing the first two). Thanks.

CMI does - not sure about EMI as I don't have that one.

Man, now I really wish I had bought the guides for CMI and EMI when they came out. At this point I'll have to wait until the next time I win the lottery to buy a used copy (should be just shy of three grand).

I'd appreciate it if anyone with the EMI hint book would step up and inform me as to whether or not that one contains Memoirs as well. It looks like if I want to eventually type these up I'm going to need to find a copy or have someone....gasp...scan me the memoirs section for me to transcribe.

I'll get back to work now. :¨:

Sure I am new here, but not to Monkey Island. For the past two years, I have been 3d1t1ng CMI to change it to follow the plot of SMI and MI2, I didn't like EMI, I only played it for five minutes, but I thought that it was pushed to be 3d, too soon. I have made very little progress on my project, but when I was reading around in the SCUMM forum, I noticed a link to this. I think that lealities already do limit me, and the fact that the AKOS decompilers out there don't help me, because I have yet been able to make changes to most cels, let alone just view all cels.

Oh what I would do if I was given permission/recources to finish my projects, but the job positions for lucusarts are all booked, and I don't live in San Fransisco.
