On this episode of Complete In Box, we’ve got not one, but two copies of the classic adventure game The Secret of Monkey Island. The boxes are identical—but the games on the floppy disks inside are definitely not.
The Curse of Monkey Island came out on Steam and GOG last week, and I’m pleased to report that, 21 years later, it’s as great as I remember.
Hello. Are you a Disney executive, passing a few minutes downtime between acquisitions and layoffs? Maybe you work at EA, and are trying to work out how to salvage your brand’s Star Wars efforts after the disaster that is Battlefront II. Here’s a free idea: make another space shooter.
Grim Fandango Remastered is free on GOG right now as part of the digital store’s winter sale. You can go download the LucasArts point-and-click adventure game for zero dollars from now through December 14 at 9am EST.
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.
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.
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.
No Jedi. No lightsabers. Just four hardcore Republic Commando clone bros with a long row to hoe.
