Nintendo Okie writes: "In the mid '90s, LucasArts was a big name in the adventure game genre. Today, that title belongs to Telltale Games. Telltale has worked on other franchises, like Wallace & Gromit, Strongbad and Sam & Max, and now it has teamed up with original Monkey Island series publisher LucasArts to work on an all-new sequel in the franchise, which originally launched in 1990. What makes the sequel unique is something not unusual for Telltale: it will be released episodically. Tales of Monkey Island: The Launch of the Screaming Narwhal is the first of five episodes that will constitute the newest adventure in the world of Monkey Island."
