Zak McKracken Special Edition Needs You! 20 Jun, 2010 / 4 comments

Facebook is a place where people can join groups and have David Fox, project leader of classic LucasArts game Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders, respond to their comments.

"We want Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders: Special Edition" is once such group. It currently has 106 members, and contains freindly support from the Fox, who revealed more about the famous "I'm selling these fine leather jackets" joke:

It was because all of the LucasArts employees were given the chance to buy one of these fine 'stressed leather bomber jackets' with an "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" leather label on the pocket... this was just before the film (or the game) came out. In fact, I think anyone could buy one -- they may have been for sale in the LucasArts online company store. Anyway, I still have mine :-)

    Hmmm, while it could certainly become a nice special edition, I doubt that there's enough support for a game like this. Not with LucasArts and not with their target audience. A MI3 special edition or a Day of the Tentacle game would have more to gain.

    Oh yes, an official special edition of Zak would be sweet.
    Have David Fox in the project as advisor to help them find the perfect voices for the characters. :-)

    A Zak McKracken special edition would be an opportunity for this game to get some of the deserved appreciation that has always eluded it. An acceptable alternative would be for LEC to put the FM-Towns version on Steam.
