Lucasarts "Want To Do" More Adventure Remakes

After what feels like a decade of asking for it, Lucasarts have finally begun to re-release their classic adventure games, starting with Fate of Atlantis on Wii (albeit bundled with Staff of Kings) and a Monkey Island remake.

But now we've had a taste, we want more. Full Throttle. Day of the Tentacle. Loom. And we might just get them... provided people buy Monkey Island.

"If this sells, there's no one at this company who doesn't want to do these games," says Lucasarts' Brooks Brown. "It's a matter of showing that there's interest and this market is alive and get people as excited as possible about Monkey Island Special Edition to show that these things can make it".

That's part shill, yes, but also a valid point from a publisher; adventure games are far from a proven commercial commodity, which is why Lucasarts stopped making them in the first place.

But such an outlook is heartening to people who for years now have asked "where are my DS Lucasarts adventure games" and heard... well, nothing.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'll go back to looking at this for the rest of the day.

    ok yes, great, I will be the first to buy (or re-buy) these awesome, classic games. But it begs the question - why, pray tell, aren't the resources being spent on NEW adventure games?!?

    I've ALREADY GOT and FINISHED my copies of DOT, Atlantis, Monkey island series, etc etc! As nice as replaying them with fancy new artwork would be, I've already completed the challenges, and doubt I would have any trouble strolling through the same puzzles again. No matter how endearing they are..

    Day of the Tentacle remake would be ace.

    I played through Day of the Tentacle again not too long ago (finished it in a day). And as much as I would love (and would probably still purchase) a new version with prettier pictures/sounds, I would prefer a sequel with an all new story, all new puzzles, all new jokes.

    Grim Fandango HD.

    They release that then all is forgiven and I will forever love LucasArts.

    You know what else they should re-release on 360/PS3...

    Jedi Knight II, still one the best FPS games i've ever played

    Whenever I smell asphalt, I think of Maureen.
