After being available to download from the Telltale Games website for some time, they are finally making their debut at retail and will be packed with some great bonus items. So prepare to return to the high seas as Guybrush Threepwood makes his long-awaited return to PC gaming and brings a whole host of recognisable faces from the series with him.

Tales of Monkey Island brings Guybrush Threepwood back to PC screens. While explosively stripping the evil pirate LeChuck of his demonic mojo, Guybrush inadvertently infects the entire Caribbean with the arch-fiend’s expelled voodoo, which threatens to transform buccaneers into unruly pirate monsters. Pursued by a notorious cut-throat pirate hunter and a creepy French physician who believes that Guybrush’s eerily-infected hand holds the secret of eternal life, Threepwood sails the seven seas in search of La Esponja Grande, a legendary sea sponge with unparalleled voodoo exfoliating abilities. But little does Guybrush know, his quest is part of a larger, more sinister plot, and good and evil are not always as they seem…

Who can Guybrush trust? Where can he turn? Everything you think you know will be challenged as Tales of Monkey Island builds to its unexpected finale!

Lace Mamba Global seem to be a strong new supporter of Adventure Games in the UK. And with their recent distribution of Gray Matter and the forthcoming Black Mirror 3 also on their slate, it seems like a good time to be an Adventurer once again after many previously lean years.
