So Butmac made a post (this one) about an old Lucas Arts Game featuring Indiana Jones. This genre holds a special place in my heart and Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis is "a shining example of how to win".

I made a comment towards the end of the post that mentions a continuation of this series but unfortunately i feel that Butmac's post is slowly heading towards the Clog Black Hole that begins somewhere between page 2 and 3.

Anyway, Barnett College has been working on a prequel to the game called Indiana Jones and the Fountain of Youth. You can download the demo here. The game quickly reminded me of much of the lost nostalgia adventures i've been searching for all these years. A lot of the humor and style has been kept true to the original.

The only downside is that i haven't seen any progress on the game in a long ass time and i fear that it may never be finished. One of those things that was started by an ambitious couple of students that has since graduated, leaving it up to a new class to finish where they left off.

Every now and then i check in on the title hoping it's finished, but i've only ever been confronted with disappointment.
