Shame we never got The Thing as a point-and-click adventure

I enjoy a good video game mockup every now and then, and this one is too rich of an idea not to share. Just imagine: John Carpenter's The Thing as a LucasArts-style point-and-click adventure game. Computer Artworks explored The Thing as a ...

Ranking the best Star Wars games that I've played

May the fourth be with you! Ha-ha, just a little joke on today, May the 4th -- Star Wars day, to the uninitiated. It's perhaps our most American holiday: no day off from work and in tribute to consumption of a multi-billion dollar entertain...

Review: Full Throttle Remastered

If there's one video game genre I missed out on, it's the point-and-click adventure titles. Hell, my first time with one was when I played Day of the Tentacle Remastered during the beginning of the year, which left me impressed with its Chu...

Thimbleweed Park's pretty pixels get a release date

Thimbleweed Park, an adventure game led by industry legend Ron Gilbert, doubled its kickstarter goal when it was announced in 2014. It's a beautiful throwback to early Lucasarts adventure titles like Maniac Mansion and Day of the Tenta...

King's Quest received a bonus epilogue episode yesterday

I'm a pretty big fan of old-school point-and-click adventure games. Grim Fandango is one of my favorites and I do have fond memories of Monkey Island and Day of the Tentacle. You'd think I'd have been all over the episodic King's Quest game...

Our first good look at Full Throttle Remastered

Double Fine is bringing Full Throttle back into our lives with a remaster, and I am so thankful for that. I've somehow only partially played this beloved point-and-click adventure, so I'll happily take this as my chance at redemption. The ...

In a move that should surprise absolutely no one, Disney's Lucasfilm division and Electronic Arts have put the kibosh on Galaxy in Turmoil, a Star Wars fan game from Frontwire Studios. According to Frontwire president Tony Romanelli, h...

No breasts, yuk yuk yuk yuk yuk yuk yuk

Aric Wilmunder worked on some of LucasArts' most famous classics, from Monkey Island to Day of the Tentacle. He sits somewhere between sentimental and pack rat, too, having kept a ton of the original documents behind the creation of these c...

 
 
 
Star Wars: Outpost video photo

See footage of the cancelled Star Wars: Outpost

"Outpost" was listed as a blip in the news of several canceled games over at LucasArts ahead of the Disney acquisition. Star Wars 1313 and Battlefront-style shooter Star Wars: First Assault were also victims. Footage from the canned Star W...

Star Wars: Rogue Squadron is now on Steam

Factor 5's 1998 classic Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D is now available on Steam. The arcade-style dogfighter is currently going for $10, which is a hell of a lot less money than I spent renting this over and over again at Blockbust...

BioWare writer would 'love' to work on another Star Wars RPG

BioWare writer David Gaider has hinted that he'd "love" to work on another Star Wars RPG. Though BioWare developed Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and the MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic, there are no Star Wars games in the studio's...

Zak McKracken fan film feels alien in all the right ways

In my mind, Zak McKracken is the unsung hero of the classic LucasArt point-and-click line up. If the Monkey Island series is analogous to a crowd-pleaser like Back to the Future, then Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders is the equivale...
