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.
