Six more LucasFilm games have moseyed onto GOG, including three that haven’t been available digitally before now.
The ones you’ve seen elsewhere are sci-fi adventure The Dig, musical fantasy adventure Loom, and Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge Special Edition, which is the special edition of Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge. But you knew that. Also, this is quite odd timing considering it was only recently we learned that Loom has “tangled” rights that will likely prevent a remaster or sequel.
The three brand new titles, though? Well! There’s ancient point-and-clicker Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders, which I have a serious soft spot for. There’s combat-y Tomb Raider-alike Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb. And, finally, there’s Outlaws + Handful of Missions, a Wild West FPS.
I could offer opinions, but… well, I’m not a big fan of Outlaws and I feel it’s horribly dated, but I do really like Zak McKracken, and that’s definitely horribly dated. So, uh. I think I’ll just skip the capsule reviews and let you decide for yourselves, because nostalgia obviously has a part to play in this.
Head on over to GOG’s front page, and you should see the magnificent six proudly posing at the top of your screen.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
