Carnival of Monkey Island

Hey guys. I thought I'd let you all know that I and a bunch of other Monkey Island fans (most of us from the Telltale forums) are currently working on a fan game called 'Carnival of Monkey Island'.



Now, this game will take place between 'Revenge...' and 'Curse...', showing the events that could have happened in that brief time period. Coincidentally, the visual/artistic style of the game will sort of be a blend between the looks of those two games.

We're planning on releasing this game in three episodes, taking it one episode at a time. We're finalizing the planning and script for Episode I at the moment, we've got some backgrounds and sprites finished, we've got some wonderful music too; so things are going pretty well. But, however, we would like to have more people on the team.

What we're mostly looking for are artists, animators and voice actors (yes, we will be having voice).

The voice-acting roles we would like filling are:

- LeChuck
- Skeletal Pirates (with lazy British accents, eg. pronouncing 'thing' as 'fing')
- Largo
- The Voodoo Lady
- Fettuccine Brothers (maybe)
- Herman Toothrot (maybe)
- Cannibals
- Pirate Bar Patron(s)
- Clown (with strong New Yorker accent - think the guy off the ShamWow ad, but not quite as fast-talking)
- Female Pirate
...more roles to come.

So, if you can lend a hand in this project, then post here to say that you're willing, and we'll go from there . Thanks.

Need any help with the script/story? I think I'd like to help there, if I could.

You never played that masterpiece of a game that was Monkey Island 2.5?

Alright, at the moment, guys, we're pretty much only looking for good animators, damn good artists, and sufficient voice actors.

@ThunderPeel2001, thanks for your willingness, but we do have a small, decent group of writers as it is. We've probably got a sufficient amount of people working on the script/story, and things are coming along quite well as they are in that aspect. However, in the future, if we find that we need some more writers on board (which we may), then I'll be sure to contact you.

@Hamza, I'm not quite sure if we need any more programmers - that's something that I'll have to run by the rest of the team. There may be room for another programmer on the team, but you'll need to show us some of your previous works/projects. Thanks .

Hi, Hayden

Happy to provide LeChuck;s voice, if you need it. I've played the role in 'Beneath Monkey Island' and now 'The Power of Monkey Island' on Nightlight.


Want some funny radio plays?

Hey Matt, thanks for the sample, I quite liked your take on LeChuck, and you're probably the best we could really hope for out of the MI community, so I'll send you the link to our forum via PM. Thanks again!

I'm sure all of us want to, but iirc, the dev team said that they wanted to keep the game's contents a secret until its release.

Could also be that they haven't produced anything yet, and don't want to admit that they don't have any game art to show at all, so they use the "keeping it secret" excuse. I sure hope that's not the case!

I've been in correspondence with HaydenWCE for some time, and to me it doesn't look like that. However, I can't wait to see the screenshots!

3 backgrounds fully complete, with others in production. Numerous sprites are completely finished, with concept art down for a few more. Inventory items will be drawn in the near future. Music is almost all done. I would love to share some of it with you but, as Alex IDV has speculated - we are keeping this stuff secret until the release, or at least closer to the release.

As far as I know, the project is still looking for more background artists. Besides, you can have a look at the first screenshot:



And a couple of other BG's, created by the same artist for a different project:

Me four. I thought this game had been cancelled or "put on indefinite hiatus"! Glad to see that it's still going.

I have to say that the door to The Irish Mile - the whole scene, actually - looks very small, though. Is Guybrush still a child when he visits that place?

Also, is that Meathook in the "Keelhaul - Live Tonight" poster?

Could be that they're busy with things irl, and haven't read your emails/PMs, or don't want to talk much about the game (it's a secret to everybody!)

Or so I'd like to think.

its not officially dead..There's still a new post every week or so but progress is getting less and less productive recently. Realistically speaking, the game won't be released anytime in the next year.

What is the reason? Lack of artists?

Mostly theres no real definitive script written yet. We've spent a whole year trying to write the first episodes story and still haven't finished. The project leader is barely on the forums anymore and very little progress is happening

If you'll finish the game (it looks AWESOME) and release it, I would LOVE to dub it in italian. Me and the italian MI team will surely translate an make a voice-over of it.

This is the famous Flash Film of Monkey Island (in collaboration with Marius Fietzek and Andrei Costantinescu):
