A new Ron Gilbert Monkey Island was definitely not on my list of things to expect in 2022, but here we are.
I have some very fond childhood memories of the first Monkey Island, and that sort of thing can very easily lend itself to an over-abundance of hype. The idea that “Yes, we’re finally getting more of that thing I loved!”
But there’s no way to know that; even with the original team back together, it’s been thirty years… that’s a lot of built-up nostalgia to try and recapture/equal/surpass, which is probably not a realistic ask of any developer. So I have to keep reminding my brain to try and temper the expectations.
