A window into a parallel reality 15 Nov, 2010 / 1 comment

So it turns out that the main thing responsible for some of our most-loved LucasArts adventures is - uh, geography. As Dave Grossman explains:

"After LeChuck's Revenge was finished, Ron Gilbert left LucasArts to form Humongous Entertainment, taking several staffers with him. What I'm not sure is widely known is that Tim Schafer and I both intended to go with him. The thing that changed our minds was when they decided to found it outside of the Bay Area. Had they stayed local, Tim and I would have joined them, and Day of the Tentacle, Throttle, and Grim Fandango would not have been made. (And Tim and I would probably be wealthier.)

It's an intriguing glimpse into a different world. There's also mention of a PS2-era Indiana Jones Trilogy game which was held-up in the development process, but which would potentially have been great.

We had the full Hovitos temple built out with the rolling boulder, and it was all awesome.

Weird stuff.

    And so, yet another movie game that we don't know anything more of than "was just really cool" and "it was all awesome" bites the dust. Shame.
