A new game in the much-loved
Tales of Monkey Island
is a download-only, single player adventure game for PC. Serialized into five monthly releases beginning in the middle of 2009, the first of these is
Tales of Monkey Island: Launch of the Screaming Narwhal
, which follows the continuing adventures of the wannabe pirate, Guybrush Threepwood, his love interest Elaine Marley and their nemesis, LeChuck.
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 a rollicking and rip-roaring entertainment experience.
