** Also, ''VideoGame/TalesOfMonkeyIsland'', developed by [=LucasArts=] and TelltaleGames, is the first game in the ''VideoGame/MonkeyIsland'' series to have playable cold openings in five chapters... sort of. Chapter 1, for example, has a playable intro that can be accomplished with help from instructions before the main title starts. Chapter 3 has a VERY long playable cold opening consisting of a few tasks and an "Answer the question" minigame before the chapter's title starts. Chapter 4, on the other hand, only has the shortest playable cold opening, where you only have to select a topic before the chapter's title starts.
