carnival.pngLucasarts is no more, Lucasfilm has been painfully buried years ago, but Monkey Island, this exquisite specimen of the adventure genre, refuses to die. Hence The Carnival of Monkey Island. A freshly announced and in the making fan tribute to the series sporting wonderful hand-painted graphics and all those characters we hopelessly love. The game will be an episodic offering and is chronologically set somewhere between LeChuck's Revenge and The Curse of Monkey Island.

Oh, and the team could definitely use some help. Especially if you are an animator or a designer.

[Update: it appears as though the project has been canceled today.]
