Lucasarts History Becomes Lucasarts Coffee Table Book

Today, Lucasarts are a bit crap. But 10+ years ago? They were great. So great their story is a story worth telling, and telling in the form of a big, expensive coffee table book.

Called, charmingly, Rogue Leaders: The Story of LucasArts, it's a "deluxe compilation that traces [Lucasarts'] history through never-before-published interviews". That and over 300 pieces of "concept art, character development sketches, and storyboards".

Author Rob Smith doesn't skimp on the subject matter. The company's entire history is covered, from Monkey Island to Star Wars to the LEGO games, plus "games that were never publicly released".

You can pre-order it now for $60 from Chronicle Books.
