More LucasArts titles on GOG

Exciting news again: GOG brings 6 more LA titles to its DRM-free catalogue, thanks to the Disney corporation.

There have been many releases in the past few days/weeks on GOG, but the one I was most excited about was the addition of LucasArts titles (see this article and this one). Now they did it again with some of the most fondly remembered titles ever, no kidding:

The Dig
Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb
Loom
Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge
Outlaws + Handful of Missions
Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders

Outlaws was a one-of-a-kind FPS set in the western with some awesome music and cutscenes. The Dig was a game based on an idea by Steven Spielberg which unfortunately hadn’t made it on the big screen. It’s a fantastic story and one of the best sci-fi games out there with some genuinely good puzzles and characterizations plus a superb soundtrack. Loom is another point-and-click adventure that was a departure from the inventory puzzles of its heyday, as it incorporated musical notes in its game design, so another doubtless classic.

Do I need to say more about Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge, one of the greatest comic adventures with also one of the most controversial endings? The puzzles might be a bit out of there, but they’re still genius (like the spitting contest), while the islands one can travel to make for a very enjoyable adventure indeed. Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders is also a very fun game, although it’s more punishing with many dead ends and ways to die, reasons why I never completed it.

Unfortunately, I haven’t played Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb yet, but the action-adventure Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine was quite a good Tomb Raider clone, and with the addition of more brawling elements, this could also be fun. And let’s be honest, Indy is just awesome.
