Full Throttle Remastered feels like a supernova. It’s bombastic, head-turning, and holds your attention during the brief time it flashes. The classic adventure game holds up today, but, unlike other Double Fine games, it doesn’t benefit from a remaster. The original was already as good as it needed to be. It’s an…
Paradigm looks bonkers and it is. Released on PC early last week, it pokes fun at the systems we’re all constrained by, inspired by classic point-and-click games.
The latest video from GVMERS takes a look back at all of the Star Wars games that never saw the light of day. Consider it a eulogy for a galaxy far, far away still littered with what-ifs.
The remastered version of Full Throttle, LucasArts’ classic biker adventure, is coming out next month. It’s releasing on April 18, which is one day after my birthday. I see what you’re trying to do, Tim Schafer. You want to one-up me. Well, joke’s on you because nobody cared about my birthday to begin with. Take that!
Indiana Jones And The Fate of Atlantis is one of the great point and click adventure games. Now, a fan remake has stopped production after being contacted by Lucasfilms.
Software piracy in 2016 is so ubiquitous that we expect games to leak ahead of release. Back in the 20th century, though, it was a lot harder for pirates to get hold of video games before they hit retail shelves. As evidenced by this crazy old story about how the classic TIE Fighter got out a week before its release…
For nearly 23 years, Day of the Tentacle has been resoundingly praised as one of the greatest adventure games of all time, a shining example of point-and-click glory. Two decades later, how does it hold up?
The HD version of Tim Schafer’s classic time-traveling adventure game, Day of the Tentacle, hits PC in exactly two weeks, on March 22.
About a year before LucasArts shut down, the iconic studio cancelled a near-finished game called Star Wars Outpost. Today, we’ve learned a bit more about that game.
Kicking off in 1986, Lucasarts presided over an era (running until around the year 2000) in which they were the adventure game Kings, releasing a string of titles that remain all-time classics even decades later.
Republic Commando is one of the best—if not also underrated—Star Wars games ever made. Thing is, if you’ve wanted to play it on PC recently, you’ve been shit out of luck, since the game ran poorly (and didn’t look great) on modern graphics cards. Thankfully, there’s now one hell of a fix.
Monkey Island turned 25 years old earlier this week, and designer Ron Gilbert used his blog to share some truly interesting (and bizarre!) stories about the game’s development.
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II—the best KOTOR—just got a huge update, for some reason.
No Jedi. No lightsabers. Just four hardcore Republic Commando clone bros with a long row to hoe.
Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis (1992) has a part where you can play the initial titles or credits sequence at the beginning of the game. I find myself wishing that way more narrative-based games would do this adorable moviesque thing.
LEGO builder vitreolum recreated pirate wannabe Guybrush Threepwood from the Monkey Island series and his first encounter with Largo LaGrande, the bully of Scabb Island from the second game.
In June of 2011, then-LucasArts president Paul Meegan spoke publicly about his plans for turning the company around.
First: a list of things that are great about Grim Fandango and will always be great about Grim Fandango. Consider this an attempt to appease the angry mob congregating outside the Kotaku Australia office 30 minutes after I hit publish on this article.
It's strange to remember just how easily influenced I was. Embarrassing to admit just how obsessively I was able to actually love one. single. video game.
