I’ve been dreaming about MI3 since about 1992 when I had my lovely A600. I was expecting the game to come out in 93. I had a feeling it would take longer for some reason. I think I expected it to be as big as LCR and that was a pretty big game.
I don’t know what happened and then years later when I finally had a PC I went and got the 2 sequels that were out and boy did they take it away from the source. I was really disappointed in those and although I did like very much Tales… I still think no,3, would have been far better.
You see as I saw it, at the time I thought it has to have a 3rd game. I assumed it was a trilogy. I Didn’t really buy the ending of Le Chuck’s Revenge and we didn’t get the Secret so I assumed that would come in the 3rd game.
I know in one of the later games they cobbled on that big monkey head bit, but…
I think I feel about MI sequels the same way I do when people go and write new sequels to old books. It is like ok, you could do a fine job, but you are no Ian Fleming, Arthur Conan Doyle or whoever. How can someone know what the original creatives had in mind, they just can’t, it can only be an approximation of what they think. And when you go playing with art styles and then put it into 3d…
Now if dreams really did come true Ron would get to make his 3rd Monkey game. I can’t help but imagine how good a MI game would looked rendered in this engine. The colours alone!
I fell in love with MI and that won’t ever die.
A sequel or spin off of Thimbleweed Park, say with Delores (she’s just so cheery and likeable!) would be fantastic but if Ron ever did get to do MI3- I would pledge £100 on the spot. Actually I recon if he did it, I would put down £250 for goodies. I love those games so very much.
I’ve only ever been on two forums before and never for a game this is how good THIMBLEWEED PARK was it made me come here.
Does anyone know if any concept art or anything MI3 exists? I would love to see some if it does.
