Return to Monkey Island will have a built-in hint system and a mode with simplified riddles

Game designers Ron Gilbert and Dave Grossman in an interview with the portal Ars Technica talked about the system of helping players in the upcoming old-school quest Return to Monkey Island.

In 2013, Gilbert believed that the (then potential) next Monkey Island should do without tutorials, hint systems, overly simple puzzles, and other indulgences for the sake of mass.

Times have changed. As it became known, Return to Monkey Island will have a built-in hint system. It will be woven into the universe of the game and provide gamers with more than just a walkthrough.

If users don’t have a built-in help system these days, Gilbert said, they’ll jump to the Internet for instructions if they encounter problems. Developers want to avoid this.

In addition, Return to Monkey Island will add a casual mode with simplified puzzles. It is intended for people with no experience in point-and-click games, with a personal life or children.

“People these days don’t want to be stuck for more than five minutes. I play [в старые квесты] with my son, who will soon be eight. Maybe he has a distorted point of view, but after two and a half minutes of thinking about the problem, he simply says: “Get out the phone. Look for a solution. Look!” Grossman shared.

The release of Return to Monkey Island is expected this year. The project is a sequel to the first two parts that Gilbert and Grossman worked on, but subsequent games in the series will not be deleted from the official canon.
