i heard that if you stay on the rollercoaster for ages guybrush can eventually die. True? i doubt it but I might as well check?

IIRC, the roller coaster tracks were rerouted, so Guybrush will never reach anything dangerous while on the roller coaster.

If you keep Guybrush on the roller coaster, it might get really annoying, so that you wish you were dead, though. http://www.escapemi.com/forums/wink.gif

I'm a bit vague on this, but I'm sure Guybrush dies in the acid pit in MI2 if he's left long enough.

I seem to remember it happening, then cut to the scene where he's hanging in the Big Whoop crater with Elaine saying something like "Well, if that happened, how come you're here now?" (remember the game is a flashback at this stage). Guybrush replies "Ok, here's what really happened." and allows the player another shot at getting him and Wally out of there.

I've only seen it happen once in numerous games, therefore I'm a bit vague on the matter.

Yeah, that's pretty much how it happens.

One of the interesting aspects of Monkey Island games. In a way, it makes the game too easy. But then again, it's not nearly as frustrating..

"I didn't think you could die in LucasArts games..."

A friend of mine just started playing Final Fantasy IX, and accidently killed the princess when he was supposed to be rescuing her... and he hadn't saved the game beforehand...

If i remember correctly you can die in secret of monkey island if you stay in the water too long when sherrif shinetop dumps you in the drink for stealing the idol. If you dont pick up the idol in 10 minutes (cause thats as long as guybrush can hold his breath http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smile.gif ) you turn green and have such verbs available as bloop, and float. Pretty funny

Hey, it's timmy the monkey....how did he get here?

I don't think Mort from CMI had played Indiana Jones And The Fate Of Atlantis when he said this! It's the only LucasArts adventure game I've played whereby the main character can die. (Except Manny who's already dead.)

I have a theory about ants. I figure that if I step on every ant I see, then eventually by natural selection the ants will evolve to avoid me. It may take a few million years, but I'm patient.

I have a similar theory about voting against the presidential candidates who equally annoy me, but they evolve even more slowly.

Its easy to die in Sierra games, and there's a good ripoff in SOMI.

When you are on the look out mountain on Monkey Island, keep walking to the right.

Hehehehe!

You can "sort of" die in Escape from Monkey Island.
*spoiler*

In the Swap where you meet yourself... shoot the other Guybrush with the gun.. he dies http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smile.gif
Later when it's your turn... the other Guybrush will shoot you... and you die http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smile.gif

But then the time paradox thing happens and you're back to the start...

It was soo funny the first time I did it... I never thought he will actually shoot the other Guybrush. http://www.escapemi.com/forums/biggrin.gif

I just have to note how spooky this is... I had just finished posting a note about the swamp trick SlimMonkey just mentioned, and then I came over here. Wait a sec: Slim posts note about swamp trick, 30 seconds later finds post about swamp trick by another SLIM, SlimMonkey! Spoooky! I feel like I'm trapped in a temporal anomoly!

Sadly, you can't die that way in EMI. When it gets closer to ten minutes (around the 9th minute), Guybrush will say that he's almost out of air. Then, when the tenth minute is up, he says he better go up to the shore, and proceeds to walk there by himself.

I guess the only thing we can do is to shoot ourselves...

Well... you can die in at least 3 adventure-games from lucasarts: Maniac Mansion, Indiana Jones and the last cruzade, and in Indiana Jones and the fate of Atlantis. Besides those I don't think you can die in any other.... except from that part in MI2 where you're trapped with Wally in Lechuck's dungeon, that's true.....

MI1, that's dying! And in CMI, you can 'die'!

That's the second chicken I've ever seen! What with me being a pirate and all. I don't see many chickens in my line of work.
What? Stop looking at me like that!

In MI1 You stay under water for ten mins. or more and you die......so that 4.....I did that by mistake....I continued to bloat...and than I did something else...and he comes back to life....go figure!

Fate of Atlantis reminds me of Sierra games in the end. Lose one fight, you're dead. In the end, click wrong answer and you're dead ( anyone played trough Atlantis knows what I'm speaking about ), and there's points showing how much you got troughout the game.

Rufio

yeah that may be so, but indy was the best game that lec had come out with in a Long time, and it also had multiple game paths and multiple endings.

Yeah, but in Fate, you have to use Ubermann's logic to your advantage and make him believe HE wants to become a god.

NFGB, did you try leaving Sophia in the cage instead of rescuing her?

I`ve never tried that 10 min. under water thing. What happends when you wait?

Guybrush: Do you know anything about lifting curses?
Murray: Oh Yeah, I know a lot about lifting curses.
That is why I am a disembodied talking skull, sitting on top of a pike, in the middle of a swamp.
Guybrush: You seem bitter.
Murray: I'm sorry it's been a rough day.

You can shoot yourself in the swamp, that's all I guess.
But then you get a new try so you don't have to worry.
