Duncan Jones, director of movies like Warcraft and Moon, has spent his time in lockdown better than most of us. He’s written a full-length “fan script” for classic 1995 adventure game Full Throttle.


It’s pretty good! While it deviates in some parts and whips up some new material in others—the original game is a lot shorter than you might remember, making it difficult to pad out a feature length film—in others its an almost literal adaptation of the game, only for the big screen and not the small.

Which, considering much of the writing of the original was perfect, is fine.

Luke Plunkett is a Senior Editor based in Canberra, Australia. He has written a book on cosplay, designed a game about airplanes, and also runs cosplay.kotaku.com.


Arai-the fly on the wall

Just played Full Throttle for the first time a couple of months ago.

I suppose it’s pretty good at its time of release but a tad dissapointing to play it now. A bit too short compared to other point-n-click and the trial-n-error fighting mechanic at the middle grinds all the momentum to a full stop.

Other than the story and voice over, I think it’s one of the lesser entry to Lucas Arts adventure games.
