Telltale Games today revealed Liz Johnston as the winner of the studios’ “Game Designer For A Day” contest.
The challenge? To come up with a single line of dialogue for Tales of Monkey Island main character Guybrush Threepwood to say when accused of wrongdoing.
Here’s what Liz submitted: “He dug up my perfectly good X!”
“I’ve been a fan of the Monkey Island‚ series and Telltale for a long time now, and it’s an honor to have my line chosen,” said Johnston. “The guys behind the game at Telltale love fan involvement, and I think it’s very cool that I’ll be hearing my line so quickly because the games are developed episodically.”
Liz’s entry was the best of over 4,400 entries and for her creativity was flown to PAX earlier this month, where she was officially unveiled as the contest winner, and got to meet with Telltale’s design director and Dominic Armato, Guybrush Threepwood’s voice actor.
Chapter 3 in the five part Tales of Monkey Island saga is due out next Tuesday, September 29, but the winning dialogue won’t show up until October when episode 4 releases. Well, at least we know it’ll include booty, wrongdoing, and X’s.
