Tales of Monkey Island is coming to an end with the final episode, Rise of the Pirate God, coming December 8. But a big problem has come to light: the hero, Guybrush Threepwood, has disappeared.
It seems that the mightiest pirate to ever grace the Caribbean has vanished without a trace along with his wife Elaine Marley-Threepwood as a result of the events in The Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood. The inhabitants suspect Guybrush’s nemesis LeChuck (who has been thrice defeated in ghost, zombie, and demon forms) may have something to do with the missing couple, but even he is nowhere to be found. The answer to these mysteries, including other lingering questions, shall be revealed in this last episode. Or maybe they haven’t checked the water yet since Guybrush does have an uncanny talent for holding his breath underwater -- as long as 10 minutes.
Telltale Games is honoring the seemingly doomed pirate by offering the current four episodes of Tales of Monkey Island for $8.95 each. Already bought an episode? You also have the option of upgrading to get the remaining chapters at a discount price. Either way, don’t miss out on the long-awaited continuation of the Monkey Island series.
