|Could Lucasarts be finally coming to GOG?
This is definitely some pretty big news if it's true, but unlike mere rumours that cropped up quite awhile ago now, it seems like there's a very good chance that GOG.com's next publisher will be a publisher behind many good old adventure games of the 80s and 90s. I'm of course talking about Lucasarts which was acquired by Disney not that long ago and all the classic adventure games of theirs such as Full Throttle, Grim Fandango, The Curse of Monkey Island and Day of the Tentacle.
I mentioned those games in particular since some of you might mention, "wait, doesn't Steam already sell some Lucasarts adventure games?". Yes, they sell some of them but as you can see by some of the games listed above, the selection they have on Steam is meagre and incomplete (why wouldn't you have those games). If GOG.com can manage to get more of the oldschool Lucasarts adventure games available for purchase again, I along with many other adventure gaming fans will be happy campers. However, Jennifer @ the International House of Mojo urges caution since the "proof" that Lucasarts is the next publisher (some fonts that are in the style of popular franchises) happen to be Indiana Jones, Star Wars and Monkey Island - all franchises that are already available on Steam - well sort of (there's only Monkey Island 1 and 2 available for example).
