I dont normally post up gaming related stuff (thats TTGamer's job), but I couldnt refrain after having seen this.

Though merely rumour for the moment, bit-tech seem to think there's a very good chance Lucasarts intend to revive the hit adventure game series "The Secret of Monkey Island" which as many of you know was a massive success, particularly the first two (of four) released back in the early/mid 90s.

Steve Purcell was the creator of other hit adventure titles from Lucasarts back in the day, Sam and Max: Hit The Road being one of them, and he just recently contacted The World Of Monkey Island website and allowed them to view three pieces of concept artwork that clearly indicate a fifth Monkey Island title is being brewed up for us all.

Let's just hope this isnt a hoax because I for one spent many many fun-filled hours being fully immersed by this awesome series and there really is a void in the gaming world for adventure game titles these days.

The rumour first surfaced last week that Lucasarts may be reviving The Secret of Monkey Island series for a fifth game when the Rumour Reporter website gave the following statement regarding a sequel to what was arguably the most iconic and brilliant adventure game ever;

"The fifth Monkey Island is coming. I know some of the guys who worked on the music compositions for the original PC classics, and they say that it is currently being planned amidst rumors. However, LucasArts has so many things on its belt right now, including a Wii title that has yet to be named."

Since i'm on the subject of games, I may as well add that John Carmack (the mastermind behind DooM) has just unveiled id's next-generation 3D engine at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference.

Tech Report have posted up details about the upcoming "id Tech 5" engine here, and you can also watch a brief presentation of it over at YouTube.
