Tales of Monkey Island
Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
While explosively stripping the evil pirate LeChuck of his demonic mojo, Guybrush Threepwood inadvertently infects the entire Caribbean with the arch-fiend's expelled voodoo, which threatens to transform buccaneers into unruly pirate monsters. Pursued by a notorious cut-throat Pirate Hunter and a creepy French Physician who believes that Guybrush's eerily-infected hand holds the secret of eternal life, Threepwood sails the seven seas in search of La Esponja Grande, a legendary sea sponge with unparalleled voodoo exfoliating abilities. But little does Guybrush know, his quest is part of a larger, more sinister plot, and good and evil are not always as they seem...
Who can Guybrush trust? Where can he turn? Everything you think you know will be challenged as Tales of Monkey Island builds to its unexpected finale!
The saga begins with a heated battle involving the brave but often bumbling Mighty Pirate™ Guybrush, his beloved wife Elaine, and their nemesis, the demon pirate LeChuck. When the showdown goes up in flames, Guybrush finds himself marooned on a strange island with winds that always blow inward. How will our hero manage to escape this meteorological anomaly? What has become of LeChuck and Elaine? And what's the story with the infectious voodoo pox that's spreading across the Caribbean, causing Guybrush and other pirates to act like unruly hooligans? These are just some of the many questions posed in this first chapter of one of the most rollicking and rip-roaring entertainment experiences to date.
Guybrush's adventures continue on the high seas as pox-plagued pirates lay siege to the innocent Mer-People. In between defending the Mer-People and dodging the persistent pirate hunter hot on his trail, Guybrush manages to catch up to his beloved wife and despised arch-nemesis — but their reunion is short-lived. Now Guybrush must focus on eradicating the Pox of LeChuck before more harm can be done. And as the Mighty Pirate draws closer to a cure, the waters will only grow murkier in this thrilling chapter of the epic saga.
In the third Tales of Monkey Island chapter, Guybrush gets in deep (literally!) as his quest for the voodoo exfoliating La Esponja Grande takes a scenic twist -- through the guts of a giant manatee!
Trapped in the belly of the beast, our hero encounters a surprising band of castaways, including the long-lost (and obsessive-compulsive) explorer Coronado De Cava. Can the Mighty Pirate win the suspicious De Cava's trust? Will sexy pirate hunter Morgan LeFlay prove to be a ruthless enemy, or an unlikely ally? Will the group find La Esponja Grande in time to save Elaine from the rampant Pox of LeChuck? And will the world be crushed by the gnashing teeth of a certain demonic skull? Tales of Monkey Island's moist and absorbing third episode, Lair of the Leviathan, will answer some of these urgent questions -- and raise still more -- as the five month adventure builds to its epic climax!
Guybrush returns to Flotsam Island, but forget about a hero's welcome. Handed over to De Singe by the backstabbing Morgan LeFlay, Guybrush is seized by an angry mob and put on trial! With a silk-tongued prosecutor in his face and a hangman's noose dangling over his neck, Guybrush must figure out how to defend himself against grave accusations. Meanwhile, the determined Marquis sets his sights on a new and far more attractive test subject. How on earth will the Mighty Pirate get out of this mess? The monthly Tales of Monkey Island tension continues to mount in "The Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood." Brace yourself for a shocking revelation that will rock the world of Monkey Island to its core.
Our piratey heroes meet their ultimate match with the Rise of the Pirate God. Can the world of Monkey Island be saved? Find out as the Tales of Monkey Island saga comes to its thrilling conclusion.
Faithful to originals.Kokuei | Feb. 18, 2014 | See all Kokuei's reviews »
When it comes down to the characters, dialogue and storyline; this game is a faithful recreation in an all new game. Many original developers were involved with the production in this game. Ron Gilbert with the story arc, Dave Grossman with the design and etc. With the talented developers at Telltale this turned out to be great.
The game is run on the Telltale Tool engine. All cutscenes and gameplay in done real time and wasn't prerecorded. Graphics are well done; game can be run on not so great hardware.
The gameplay is similar to the original. You point and click on objects. You combine objects to create new items to continue the quest. There are also a few red herrings to detour you from having a completely linear path.
This goes without flaws though. Majority of the objectives are really straight forward. A little too obvious what the correct choice are. Others are completely random where there is no conceivable way you can understand what's going on ie. "Whale Mating" (using this to avoid spoilers). There are also game breaking bugs which didn't not allow me to continue the game at one point. I had to take 30 minutes skipping through every piece of dialogue and puzzle to get back to where the bug occurred.
Overall the series is pretty well made and if you liked the original's comedic value; this game will keep you laughing.

A new, and entertaining, installment to the Monkey Island series. Fans of the original and/or Telltale games will enjoy it. It was a nostalgic experience for me. The dialogue, voices, characters, and puzzles were all done superbly.
The game (including all 5 chapters) took me around 10 or 12 hours to complete, and there weren't any dull moments. I'd say it's money well spent for anyone who picks it up.

I love the series of Monkey Island, especially the Third Part. When I heared about Tales of Monkey Island I wanted to have it! I deeded to know what happens after that cliffhanger in "Escape from Monkey Island"! I was surprised first. The controls were no longer bad, like in Monkey Island 4. I hat a lot of fun playing the game, but there was a glitch which crashed the game. It needed some time to fix it. The puzzles were hard but that was not a big problem for a fan of the series! My conclusion is: the game is a good sequel to the Monkey Island series and it includes a lot of background Information!

This game series are pretty cool. Of course, they are not like the original and legendary monkey island. But the story is atractive and insteresting, the characters are fun and great (Guybrush is perfect).
The gameplay is like all of the Telltale games, a simple and perfect executed graphic adventure. The chapters have a fine duration and the graphics are ok for the type of game.
Perfect to remember the old Monkey Games.

Tales of Monkey Island is the newest installment in the Monkey island series and it manages to hold its own amongst the prior amazing adventures. The episodic layout of this title is played akin to chapters in a book, each one features approximately 2-4 hours of playtime making the full game a good 10 hours at least.
The story is great, has very humorous dialogue with excellent voice-acting and the characters are very likeable. The game is filled with memorable moments and puzzles, always try to play these kind of games without using guides, as this ruins half the fun! That said, I think the game has a good difficulty setting and most puzzles can be solved with some logical, and sometimes illogical thinking.
Tons of fun from start to finish, had an absolute blast playing through this game.
