Be still my heart. LucasArts, the classic video game company from the 80’s,.. was shutdown this week by Disney who took over the franchise recently.
Maniac Mansion, Secret of Monkey Island, The Star Wars Games, Sam & Max, Grim Fandango, Zak McKracken, and the Indiana Jones games were just a few titles to come from this company. The last title produced by them would be the lackluster Kinect Star War for XBOX.
LucasArts created the SCUMM (Script Creation Utility for Maniac Mansion) which was the revolutionary in creating a language that was not quite programing language, not quite game engine…. that allowed for easier creation of the worlds we loved. “Go to Mailbox”
I sure do miss classic adventure game titles like this. They are definately a large reason I still game today… playing those when I was younger. Whats your fav classic game?
