That's my feeling about it. Look at what LucasArts did with the first two Monkey Island games. It gave those games a whole new life with a new audience (and gave LucasArts a new way to make money off of them with a fairly minimal investment -- which is obviously going to be important to the rights holder and a step in the direction of doing something new with the license). It's not a coincidence that the Secret of Monkey Island remake and new Tales of Monkey Island game came out around the same time, it was a strategic move by LucasArts.

Anyway, back on topic... the campaign hit $250k today! Woohoo!
