Tales of Monkey Island comes to Mac

After bamboozling gamers on the PC, Xbox 360 and Wii, Guybrush Threepwood’s latest grog-swigging exploits in Tales of Monkey Island are now available on the Mac too. Not only that, but Telltale is also promising to make Mac versions of its other adventure games, and you can vote for which one comes next.

The indie developer has set up a poll for Mac gamers to vote on which inventory-juggling puzzler they’d like to see next. The poll will be open until 21 February, and you have a choice of Sam & Max, Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People and Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures.

As well as influencing Telltale’s development schedule, one lucky voter will also apparently get their name into Telltale’s stylish credits that roll at the end of the winning game.

Telltale CEO and ex-LucasArts chap, Dan Connors, said that “we're looking forward to getting the games to this community to further enrich the increasingly growing, vibrant and technically outstanding Mac platform.”

After all, the latest Macs are basically just Intel-based PCs with a different OS. "We're big fans of Apple's technology and devices,” added Connors, “and we're looking forward to building further from here."

If you own both a PC and a Mac, and you’ve already bought the PC versions of any Telltale games, then you’ll be able to download the Mac version absolutely free. Meanwhile, Mac-owning Telltale virgins can pick up the five-episode Tales of Monkey Island adventures for $35 (£22).
