Tim Talk

An interview with Tim Schafer, co-designer of Monkey Island 1 & 2, has been posted by IGN. In it, Tim talks about his upcoming game Psychonauts as well as a small mention of Monkey Island:
Way back in Full Throttle, the biker game we did, we really wanted to have Ben go off in the desert and find this cactus and take this peyote and have this interactive gaming trip. It was going to be awesome but it wasn't going to some drug glamorization thing. [..] Even way back in Monkey Island we were going to do something like that where the character gets hit on the head and has this wacky adventure.

Very cool! You need a credit card to read the whole interview (although it is a free try-out).
