Announcing the Tales of Monkey
Island "Game Designer for a Day" Contest

Enter the Tales of Monkey Island
contest, and your words could appear in an upcoming episode!

What’s your opinion of that
scoundrel, Guybrush Threepwood, Mighty Pirate? Telltale is announcing the unique
chance to put your words into the mouths of pirates in an upcoming episode with
the Tales of Monkey Island dialogue contest that begins today.

To enter, flex your funny bone and
send Telltale a one-liner that explains how Guybrush Threepwood, Mighty Pirate,
wronged you in some way. The funniest and most imaginative entries will be
submitted for consideration to be recorded by Tales of Monkey Island voice
talent and inclusion in an upcoming game episode.

Tales of Monkey Island is a
brand-new pirate adventure told across five months, set in the universe made
famous in LucasArts’ popular Monkey Island game series. Telltale is bringing all
the drama, intrigue, and swashbuckling adventure of Monkey Island to today’s
gamers in this five episode saga, which premiered last week at
for PC. In the series’ first chapter,
"Launch of the Screaming Narwhal," Guybrush washes up on the shores of Flotsam
Island after a "heated and unsuccessful” battle with his arch-nemesis, the demon
pirate LeChuck. His quest: to rescue his wife Elaine, to clear up the voodoo pox
that’s infecting pirates across the Caribbean, and to finish off LeChuck once
and for all. But first, he’ll have to find his way off an island plagued by
winds that always blow inward, while giving the slip to a maniacal scientist who
keeps trying to cut off Guybrush’s pox-infected hand. And that’s only the
beginning of the Mighty Pirate’s five-month adventures! The dialog line from the
contest winner may appear in a pivotal scene within the penultimate chapter of
the saga this October.

In addition to featuring the winning
entries in an upcoming episode, contest winners may appear in the game credits
and be eligible for other great prizes. The contest kicked off today, July 14,
2009 at noon PST, and runs through midnight PST, August 10, 2009. Additional
contest details can be found at
