Mysterious Happenings Plague the Caribbean as Denizens Anxiously Await Answers in "Rise of the Pirate God" on Tuesday, December 8

Quote:
SAN RAFAEL, Calif. -- November 18, 2009 -- Telltale Games and LucasArts today are reporting the purported demise of Guybrush Threepwood, one of gaming's greatest heroes and the Caribbean's mightiest pirates.



Details are sketchy and authorities have not named any suspects, but unconfirmed reports suggest that the recently reformed pirate LeChuck may somehow be involved. Investigators have not been able to locate the former demon pirate, or Threepwood's wife Elaine Marley-Threepwood, for questioning.



As the chronicler of Threepwood's recent exploits in Tales of Monkey Island, Telltale Games assures the masses that answers to many vexing questions will be revealed in the grand finale episode, Rise of the Pirate God, which releases on Tuesday, December 8 at http://www.telltalegames.com/monkeyisland.



During his eventful lifetime, Guybrush stepped in as the Caribbean's savior on many occasions, vanquishing his arch-rival LeChuck (in ghost, zombie and demon form) countless times. However, it was his uncanny ability to hold his breath for 10 minutes straight that truly set him apart from his pirate peers.

"He wanted what every young man wants - to loot, pillage, and sail the high seas in search of further looting and pillaging opportunities," said Dave Grossman, veteran Monkey Island game designer and writer. "It's a great tragedy to see such a productive life seemingly cut off prematurely. And I'm not just saying that because he owes me money."


In honor of Threepwood's heroic and adventurous life, Telltale is now offering the first four episodes of Tales of Monkey Island for individual purchase at http://www.telltalegames.com/monkeyisland. Each episode is priced at $8.95 USD each.

I hear the sound of "Taps" being played on the shores of Monkey Island, while the monkeys stand at attention.

I wonder what the inscription will be on Guybrush's tombstone? Maybe we could come up with ideas? cry

If he can't beat LeChuck
No one could.

Here Lies Guybrush Threepwood:

Piracy was his trademark.
Monkeys were his business.
Voodoo was his undooing.

Rise of the Pirate God ...
None other than our famous Guybrush Threepwood?
Just a thought, of sorts, hoping I'm wrong, actually!


To love is to be happy with!

Here lies a man who wishes he had taken up dairy farming.

LeChuck, you fight like a cow...ard.

Guybrush Threepwood
c????-c????

No more will he roam
The seas he called home,cry
No more be the swain
Of gorgeous Elaine,hearts
No more will he worry
'Bout the curses of Murray,evil
No more the mainstay
Of Morgan LeFlay,hearts
He trusted LeChuck,shame
The blackguard then struck,
So Guybrush is gone,
No more to be drawn,frown
But his bones are not here,
His demise is not clear!think
So we can be wishing
That he's only gone fishing.cool

Or this for those of a classical bent, with apologies to Sir Thomas Malory (a rogue, all the same):

Guybrush Threepwood

Yes, you do know, Jody. White translated from Malory, who had it as "Hic Iacet Arthurus, Rex Quondam Rexque Futurus"

Nice screenshots. Has Guybrush only gone fishing? There's a sort of underworld look to those screenshots.
