After Monkey Island, Telltale Looking At...Loom?

During a podcast chit-chat with PC Gaming Now, Telltale's Dave Grossman has revealed that, once his team is done with Tales of Monkey Island, another classic Lucasarts game might be ripe for the remake/sequel treatment.

"The one I always think about these days is Loom actually", Grossman says, "and how ahead of its time it was".

"I think the problem with it at the time was that it was only two and a half hours long and now I find myself deliberately trying to design games that are only two and a half hours long. So I think…well, why not do that?"

No reason we can see, Dave. Loom's been largely forgotten about for a while now, but in a world that thinks Nintendo invented the musical instrument as a means of solving puzzles, now's as good a time as ever for the game to make a comeback.

So long as the remake is purple. All I remember about the game (I haven't played it in over 10 years) are music, hoods and the colour purple. It was everywhere.

Something Loom-ing at Telltale? [Total PC Gaming]


    To quote Guyrbush from MI3 "Have you ever heard of Bobbin Threadbare?"

    Loom was awesome :)

    Short, but awesome. When I found SCUMMVM the first thing I hunted down was my old LOOM floppy... or was it on several? I have the feeling it was a few disks...

    Still, fantastic puzzle solving game, I just loved the moment when I first realised how to get past the tornado... it was like a revelation :)

    This would be a bulging sack of awesome. Even better would be if they finally got around to making the two sequels.

    I have the original kicking around somewhere at my folks house, I just bought the release on Steam, and I'd definitely by a remake of it. LOOM was one of the defining games of my childhood, and I was pleased to find that it still holds up today.
