We need Grim Fandango

Just a thought (and forgive me if this has been brought up numerous times before), but with Lucas Arts releasing updated Monkey Island games for most platforms, don't you think it's time for them to switch gears and give us a new Grim Fandango using the same principles... multi-platform (including iOS, of course) and, perhaps, episodic?

I'll second this. Although I've had a heck of a time getting it to run smooth on newer Intels. I could imagine a iOS port to be difficult.

Along those lines, we need to push the creators of Skeleton Story to make a Point and Click. They said they wouldn't becuase P&C don't sell well on the iOS platform, but we just need to change the thinking.

Yeah I brought this up right after the 1st Monkey Island Remake came out. Grim was an awesome game and would look great on the iPhone 4 and iPad!

I hope to not see it on iPhone, it would be probably a bad port

I love this world!

I cannot see the most recent Monkey Island games going so well on the iPhone. Especially those in 3D. They really should have kept to 2D..
