I know what you're thinking.
"SuperMooseman, the new Monkey Island game was announced in June. Why do you make such a statement?"
Aha, but you are wrong! Alexendra Boyd, voice of Elaine Marley, blogged about the series' revival here back in February. I don't know about you, but this is pretty insane. It was a good three months and a bit between that blog and the official announcement, but no-one even noticed. Not a single person. Duuuude.

What the hell? I used to visit the monkey island fansites for news every once in awhile, and none of them noticed this?

It's a good thing I didn't see the news or I would have hyped myself up a little too much.

Whoa...that's pretty crazy. You'd think someone would have noticed that.

Normal people would read this and shrug, but if you're familiar with the workings of the interwebs, this is pretty friggin amazing. A reliable blog source confirms a new Monkey Island game and for four months, not a single soul notices. Mind blowing.

Wow, it's really incredible that no one noticed this before. Maybe it had to do with the fact that Alexandra Boyd isn't much of a celebrity, everyone know about Dominic Armato, but no much about the rest of the cast. Still, nice find. You'd have been a hero you had found it a couple of months ago.
