May help fill gap in Mac adventure games
Telltale has announced that it is producing Mac versions of several of its adventure games, starting with the comedic pirate series Tales of Monkey Island. Players assume the role of Guybrush Threepwood, who accidentally releases an evil voodoo over the Caribbean while doing battle with the undead pirate LeChuck. The aftermath has players working towards finding a cure for the curse and preventing people from being turned into pirate monsters.
In addition to Tales, the company is also planning to release Mac ports of Sam and Max, Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People, and Wallace and Gromit's Grand Adventures. In order to decide which game will be released next, Telltale is hosting a ballot box where users can vote on which title they would prefer to see. The ballot will be open until February 21st.
All owners of Tales of Monkey Island for Windows can download the Mac version for free, and any new buyers of one copy will receive a similar dual license. The game costs $35 in full and is also available as a free demo.
