LucasArts' Secret History Part Two 09 Mar, 2008, 14:28 / 8 comments

You will remember our first backward gaze into the forest of quondam LucasArts; now look again at the second part of LucasArts' Secret History as we return to Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders.

The game is twenty years old this year: what can it say to us about the past? What can we say to it about the future?

(Thanks again to Dan Lee for the awesome art work.)

    Good work! Another great article.

    I've always wondered if Zak was named so, because his surname is phonetically similar to "muckraking", being a potential play on his profession...

    Nice, I have played the game for a few hours with little clue what to do next. I think I'll use the walkthrough and give it a go again sometime soon.

    Nice article, as usual! Gotta love all the Steve Purcell art in the Inquisitor newspaper scans you guys linked to.

    Great job. But it looks like this'll be the only one I'll never play, at least for a while.

    Excellent! More nice work, I'm loving this series!

    Although I still can't believe you gave me Tingle...!

    And I still don't know who Tingle is. And I don't really care.
