  1. Does anyone have any idea how to take ReMI apart to get hand on some of these graphics. I was thinking about doing a few maps of this game as a personal project or creating one of these pamphlets Guybrush is carrying around. But how to get these graphics except of takin screenshots? Or maybe even getting other graphics of this game as well.
  2. OK, so the title of this post is really just an invitation to someone who's smarter than I am to deliver a real honest-to-goodness analysis comparing Twin Peaks: The Return and Return to Monkey Island. Dantoine in another thread (here) brought up this comparison, and I think it's a great one, well worth exploring. In both cases, the original creators (David Lynch for Twin Peaks, Ron Gilbert and Dave Grossman for Monkey Island) return decades later to pick up and "wrap up" their original stories that never received proper conclusions. In both cases, the creators insisted on full control to create exactly what their vision was. And in both cases, the results were not what many expected or necessarily wanted, in some cases actively pushing back against the very concept of there being such a thing as a satisfying conclusion. I'd argue that Gilbert and Grossman are way more in the camp of "give 'em what they want" than Lynch is. RTMI is much more inviting than Twin Peaks: The Return, which at times felt intentionally alienating. But I can't help but feel that they share a lot of the same DNA philosophically in regards to the tension between storytellers and their audience. What is the story that needs to be told that justifies coming back after all these years? Do they have a story so compelling that they felt a need to share it with the world? Is it more of a feeling of obligation because the fans demand it? How much is motivated by money? If the answer to that is, a lot, does that taint the experience? How much is motivated by ego? Isn't storytelling largely ego-driven to begin with? Is it possible to deliver a satisfying follow-up to a popular, legacy franchise without coming across as pandering? RTMI is first and foremost a fun and silly game, and these are some philosophical questions that a casual observer might argue are looking for depth where it isn't merited. But just because it doesn't present itself as Art (with a capital A) the way so much of Twin Peaks: The Return did doesn't mean it doesn't warrant the same level of scrutiny. At any rate, it's fun! Not just the game itself but talking and debating about it. If nothing else, maybe we'll make some friends along the way!
  3. There's a lot of music in the game, so I'm curious... if you had to pick one location, which one would have your favorite music? (This poll is a part of a larger scientific study.)
  4. I used the hint book in the game to be honest, sometimes because I was just tired instead of making a break and giving it a new try the next time. I am wondering how many times you have been using the hint book?
  5. Hey y'all. Ok. I'm posting this in the non ReMI spoiler forum because though my thought was triggered by Return it actually is about the first two installments but since it in some kind relates to ReMi, those who have not finished it should probably stop reading.
  6. Hello there, I have beaten twice this game (still loving it), and I am trying to slowly get all of the achievemtents (still missing a lot, but hey) However, one REALLY scares me: the speedrunner achievements to finish the game in less than two hours. Can any of you give me tips on what to do and reduce as much time as possible across the game? I am not even sure I can reach Monkey Island in less than two hours!

  8. I love ReMI, but I also need a place to discuss my niggles (and they are only niggles... very trivial annoyances that don't stop the overall enjoyment of the game). Here's one... and yes, one gives you a "wrong" answer
  9. So with Return to Monkey Island now out, headcanons are probably even more in-depth than ever. Return was one of the few games I played that seems to openly embrace and encourage individual interpretations and head-canons. That being said, I thought it would be cool to have a thread to discuss headcanons just in general. Not just about this game and its themes and endings, but how it's framed the entire series for you. Anything from Secret to the Voodoo Lady's agenda. Below is my (current) headcanon for the entire series. TLDR: Not important enough, just feel free to share your own headcanons. ----- The entire series is largely real, not fantasy, though embellished here and there by Guybrush and the reimagining of his son, which I personally view as the framing of every game in the series until Return, where Guybrush steps in as the unreliable narrator. Guybrush was an orphan, abandoned by his parents and bullied by his peers for his name and only found solace in a pirate themed amusement park/carnival. He was attracted to the pirate lifestyle as it seemed to be exciting and a way to make a name from himself. Once he was old enough, he finally decided to pursue his dream, dropped out of school, and left for Melee Island to become a pirate. Not too long ago prior to this event, LeChuck had met Elaine while he was in Melee to recruit for his expanding crew and pick up Voodoo supplies. Upon becoming obsessed with Elaine and being told to drop dead, LeChuck approached the Voodoo Lady and asked what it would take to win Elaine. She informed him the Secret of Monkey Island held many rumors of promises, enticing LeChuck to embark on a journey to find the secret. A few days after setting sail, the Voodoo Lady conjured up a storm that destroyed his ship and then influenced a trio of sharks to rescue him and wash him ashore on Blood Island. The Voodoo Lady was keen to contain the more dangerous forces of voodoo in the Caribbean and saw LeChuck as a means to absorbing them so they can be collectively neutralized by another individual, who she eventually saw in Guybrush. She was manipulating their battles to not only contain the dark forces of Voodoo, but to also compel one of them to finally unearth the Secret and lay the mystery to bed once and for all. The Caribbean had pockets of voodoo energy that converged from the Crossroads in several areas, such as Terror Island, the Rock of Gelato, the swamp on Lucre Island, but especially underneath Monkey Island, which was demonic energy and pure evil in nature. In the course of his adventures, Guybrush tried to make sense of his parents leaving him, even having a disturbing dream in MI2 that was indicative of them leaving him when he needed them the most. By the end of Return, Guybrush left the secret behind him, which was nothing more than a T-Shirt. In reality, the Secret was that Monkey Island was a convergence of multiple dimensions and pockets of time, with one being the gates to hell itself (Big Whoop). Both LeChuck and Guybrush actually knew the secret the entire time since the first game, but since it wasn't clearly labeled, they didn't think it was the Secret and believed they never truly discovered it. Stan used this to his advantage to make a fake secret as part of a marketing ploy, but the true scope of his profit scheme never came to fruition due to his various legal predicaments. In the end, LeChuck lost the faith of his entire crew and was enveloped by the promise of the secret, fighting for eternity in hell over an empty promise of power and wealth. Stan used the many adventures of Guybrush as inspiration to create a new theme park based off his adventures and the various characters. Guybrush became his best customer and the two became legitimate friends, to the point that Stan trusted him to shut down the park. The park was based off each game, with the prize for Big Whoop being an E-Ticket and the Secret being a T-Shirt (as was Stan's ploy before the park as well). Guybrush, having done enough adventuring for a lifetime, semi-retired from piracy and became a flooring inspector, with him and Elaine pirating as a vice. They wanted to start a family and had a son. Guybrush often told these tales (Tales of Monkey Island) to his son, embellishing here and there, with his son also taking liberties at times. Guybrush combined his tale of the Secret with Stan's carnival, finally taking his son there himself sometime later. The Voodoo Lady, having finally achieved her purpose of containing the darkest of voodoo energies and closing the door on the Secret, also retired and worked at the amusement park, perhaps even spending her time off searching for De Cava and finally reuniting with him. In the end, Guybrush gained everything he wanted, but only through immense hardship that showed him what really mattered (like the Voodoo Lady once said in Tales, her guidance may very well have saved Guybrush from himself). He now has a family and became the parent he always wanted his parents to be for him. He forgave them, but vowed to always be there for his own family no matter what. ---- Other pieces of my head canon: Herman was Elaine's maternal grandfather. His real name was Haratio Torquemeda, but took Marley as his last name when he married Elaine's maternal grandmother. It would fit with Escape's narrative of Guybrush as being seen as Marley. LeChuck is truly not Guybrush's brother, but his original name was Charles and nicknamed Chucky. He renamed himself to LeChuck when he became a pirate. LeChuck's voodoo priest was something of a mentor to him in younger years and instilled within him a drive for power. He would later recruit him into his army years later when he became a fearsome pirate. The five death tarot cards in Curse weren't just referring to Guybrush faking his death twice in that game, but also his murder at LeChuck's hands and Elaine spraying his ghost with voodoo root beer in Tales, and him being declared dead in Escape.
  10. OzzieMonkey “The game will have more than 4 "Parts".“ TRUE! LowLevel “My serious prediction is that the authors have found a way to make the game feel like a final third installment, in the sense that a person unfamiliar with the franchise could play only "Secret," "Revenge," and "Return" sequentially and feel them as an entire cohesive and organic story.” FALSE KestrelPI Struggled to make ONE prediction… “The carnival/child Guybrush is in SOME sense real, and the 'real' guybrush we're playing now is genuinely grown up.” TRUE! Nicely done. “As is the brother thing, that's also real.” FALSE! “It might not be quite what we imagined, but it's also not going to be 'actually nah that was all just a spell that LeChuck put on you’.” EH? “The opening of the game will address this, but it'll be revisited at the end too.” FALSE! JacquesSparkyTail “My prediction is that no more than 2 of these characters (Captain smirk, meathook, the cannibals, the navigator head, the fettuccini brothers, largo legrande, the voodoo priest, the men of low moral fibre, kate capsize, govenor phatt, the barbary coast crew, kenny, goodsoup, i.Cheese, pegnose pete, van winslow and morgan leflay) will appear. To be just a little more pessimistic i’ll say probably just the cannibals.” TRUE - None of them appeared! fentongames ““The Secret” will be different for every player depending on their specific in-game actions (I.e. which order puzzles were actioned in, which option players took to solve a multi-solution puzzle early on, like Fate of Atlantis, etc.) There will be a hundred or so variations of it in the final game.” FALSE (Edit: Or is it?! Is there more to this that I initially thought?? https://mixnmojo.com/features/sitefeatures/The-Many-Epilogues-of-Return-to-Monkey-Island ) “Okay, I’m only half serious about this, but I am expecting a degree of a joke for the secret’s reveal, or at least something that raises a few more questions.” KIND OF? Guybrush Transmasc “The secret is revealed in the early game, so the narrative can spend time really digging into its ramifications.” FALSE “Also, if I'm allowed a low stakes mini-prediction: There will be a situation where Wally gets one over Guybrush, a role reversal of the dynamic they had in MI2.” Ok... FALSE ThunderPeel2001 “Ron will have added a new clever structure to REMI, the likes of which we’ve not seen before in a MI title.“ TRUE (I think, but I'm biased) THE WINNER KestrelPI for “The carnival/child Guybrush is in SOME sense real, and the 'real' guybrush we're playing now is genuinely grown up.” Thanks for playing!
  11. I'd like to replay the game at some point and see things like Cogg Island and maybe even go for the "Trivia Lord" achievement, but I'm a little hesitant not knowing exactly how Trivia Cards work, and thus whether a full second run would be assured of finding them all: what determines whether they spawn in a room? Is the total pool of cards tracked across multiple savegames/runs (ie the way achievements are clearly tracked, such that you access them via the main menu not the pause menu from within a specific game session)? If I got a particular trivia question wrong on my first play of the game, will that card show up again on a second run? Do specific cards always show in specific places (ie is there a place I can go to reliably get the Cogg Island card?) Probably a few other things I'd like to know about em but those are the main ones. Thanks! If nobody knows, feel free to use this thread to research and speculate!
  12. Currently on part 2, and I absolutely need to know if I'm only able to play an hour or two a day and I don't want to spend the next however-long tearing the game apart for an answer that never comes. I just want my life back.
  13. I'm not sure if this has been patched out yet, but on the Switch version you can access a debug menu by holding down three fingers on the screen for a couple of seconds. Lets you toggle a bunch of stuff, change chapters, rooms etc. Not sure if it's easy / possible to access on PC either. Had a quick look through it, but might be of interest to some!
  14. When the game was first announced for Steam and… small gasp… Nintendo Switch I couldn’t figure out why. Mr. Gilbert had said the amount of orders for Thimbleweed Park in Switch was quite high so that is why they did these two systems first. I literally left for vacation the day RtMI came out so the Switch was my only option. After playing through the whole thing on hard on it I can say I absolutely love the control scheme. It was intuitive and easy to use to solve puzzles. Very much would try more point n click adventures on this little device again.
  15. We all know that LeChucks voice actor has changed as the former didn't want the job anymore. But I have noticed that the voice actor of Gullet (or Gullit) - one of the zombies of LeChucks crew - actually sounds more like the former LeChuck. At least to my ears. Any idea who voiced this Zombie? Have you had the same impression?
  16. Use this thread if you've just started playing and want to talk about the early game, without getting into the rest. If you've played the Prologue and are just getting into Part One, but don't want late game spoilers, this is the thread for you. My simple take is... I love how this game starts. It's absolutely nothing I would have expected. It was a delight to be playing through and having absolutely no idea what was happening, or would happen next, until the ground finally slowly came in underneath me.
  17. Any idea A) how to win the race against Chuckie or B) how to feed the duck? for A) I wished another scurvy dog from the wishing well and Chickie ate it but he was still not slowing down. for B) the „parents“ don’t let us near the bread
