Telltale Games’ Tales of Monkey Island Returns to Digital Storefronts With a 50% Off Sale

After being delisted for the better part of two-years, Telltale Games’ Tales of Monkey Island is back on digital storefronts. The episodic narrative adventure was removed from Steam alongside a raft of other Telltale Games when the developer shuttered back in 2018.

Tales of Monkey Island is currently available over on Steam as well as GOG. To mark the occasion, it’s available at half price – just $9.99/£7.74. For the price, you’ll get all five episodes of the 2009 game packaged as a complete edition.

This time around, Steam lists the developer as LCG Entertainment. The company bought up Telltale’s key assets, trademarks, technology, and several IPs with an eye on re-releasing some of the defunct developer’s back catalog. Already re-released titles include Batman: The Enemy Within and Batman – The Telltale Series.

Publishing duties fall to California-based Athlon Games, LCG Entertainment’s marketing and publishing partner, who’s involvement in re-releases and new titles were announced when LCG took over in August 2019.

While Tales of Monkey Island doesn’t have the same cult standing as the original LucasArts-developed tetralogy, it reviewed very well. It maintains a ‘Very Positive’ user review score on Steam.

Here’s the official description if you missed it first time round:

“While explosively stripping the evil pirate LeChuck of his demonic mojo, Guybrush Threepwood 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…”

The news suggests we could see LCG re-release more Telltale classics in the not too distant future. Game of Thrones, Tales of the Borderlands, and Guardians of the Galaxy remain notably absent from digital storefronts.
