Telltale's Tales of Monkey Island screenshot of the pirate LeChuck

When Telltale Games closed down their doors in 2018, their games quickly got pulled from digital storefronts. Some, like the immensely popular The Walking Dead series returned just as swiftly, while others were unfortunately left in limbo.

One of these games, as you might imagine from the title, was Tales of Monkey Island. However, in a stroke of good fortune, it would appear that all of the background issues have now been resolved as Tales of Monkey Island has just returned to both Steam and GOG! Best of all, it's currently on a 50% sale as well!

As for whether it's actually worth playing for oldschool Monkey Island fans, that's a difficult question to answer. I played it when it first launched so my memory might not be the sharpest, but the main thing I feel towards it is ambivalence. It wasn't bad enough that I wanted to quit halfway through, but it also wasn't good enough to grip me and stay in my head for years to come like the first season of The Walking Dead series. So if you're curious, it's probably worth checking out, but if you have no interest, don't worry as you're not missing out on much.

Have fun, and I'll leave you with the original trailer - just so you get a better idea of what you're getting yourself into.
