    And also, we finally got a tiny bit of intel on the infamous Young Indy game alluded to by the end credits of Fate of Atlantis! Brian says it was cancelled because the show was. Allegedly it was also just not coming together well. I guess in the timeline that would have been before the Iron Phoenix was conceived as FOA's follow-up?

    The story of what became of the Loom sequels gets clearer and clearer with every interview. It was always difficult for me to reconcile Brian's claims that he never really began work on Loom 2 with the claims that Mike Stemmle (and others) were at one point associated with the project. Now it makes sense.

    At what capacity does LucasArts even exist any more?

    Their website has been essentially abandoned.

    Their only presence on Facebook is a 1313 page that hasn't been updated since September.

    Does this company even exist any more?
