If the words Day of the Tentacle
, Grim Fandango
and Full Throttle
bring pangs of joy to your heart of hearts, you'll want to hear this -- several LucasArts higher-ups have stated the desire to bring more of their catalog of classic adventure titles back to life, provided that people show interest in purchasing them. For starters, you could drop a few bucks on the upcoming XBLA and PC remake of The Secret of Monkey Island
as a good faith offering.
This sentiment was mentioned to Australian news outlet WAToday
by LucasArts community manager Brooks Brown, who said, "if this sells, there's no one at this company who doesn't want to do these games." One fan of the company's beloved point-and-clickers is LucasArts CEO Darrell Rodriguez, who spoke with Joystiq on the possibility of more classic revamps just before E3, and explained that he "couldn't do anything but release more of these titles" if sales for Monkey Island
and desire from the gaming populous were strong.
Long story short, if you don't buy Monkey Island
, and they don't re-release Grim Fandango
because of your non-purchase, we're going to find you and punch you repeatedly in your most delicate places.
