BBC Discusses LucasArts

22 Nov, 2002, 09:24 | Posted by: DJG
BBC News World Edition has written an article about LucasArts, Star Wars games, and originals. Here is a quote:
The fact that [LucasArts] could almost depend on making money by exploiting interest in Star Wars meant it also had freedom to experiment with games and storylines, said Mr Sarris.

In the past it has developed popular cartoon adventures such as Sam and Max, Grim Fandango, and Full Throttle.

A sequel to Sam and Max was being developed, said Mr Sarris, as were more instalments in the Monkey Island series of games.
Courthold of Adventure Developers points out that the articled used to say that a 4th installment of the Monkey Island series was in development, but later changed. This leads us (well, it leads Jake) to believe that the article was talking about EMI. Don't get all excited, we all know there will be a fifth Monkey Island game eventually.

    If this is a new interview (which I assume it is since they are talking about Gladius) then how can the new MI game be EMI? It was released two years ago!

    Read below. The article was probably inaccurate.

    Secret: this interview is confusing and probably inaccurate.

    It's in the past tense because the quote is in the past.

    "A sequel to Sam and Max was being developed, said Mr Sarris".

    Either was or is would suffice in that context.

    I want to know what those 25 star wars questions were. I want to see how well(bad) I would have done.

    "Sam and Max was being developed" I don't understand the "was" part. It "is" being developed.
