In order to celebrate 20 years of Double Fine, Humble Bundle have are giving you the chance to pay what you want for every Double Fine game ever*. And some of their soundtracks, too. And also a ton of their "Presents" games.

The bundle includes Psychonauts, Day of the Tentacle Remastered, Full Throttle Remastered, Grim Fandango Remastered, Broken Age, Brutal Legend. As well as Everything, Gang Beasts, RAD, and 140 just too many more for me to type out!

If you own them all already, why not bestow the give of Double Fine on a friend, neighbour or total stranger?

Partake here: The Double Fine 20th Anniversary Humble Bundle

* There's probably some games missing.

When it comes to Lucasfilm news, I am well aware that the only thing our readership values is scoop on Willow. Be assured, I hear you loud and clear.

And on that front, Ron Howard's got some updates. Speaking to radio host Andy Cohen, the director of the 1988 "classic" confirms that development on the potential Disney Plus series continues, with Jonathan Kasdan as the creative mastermind and presumed showrunner. Though quick to reiterate that the show is still yet to be greenlit, Howard makes it clear that the prospects have never been better:

Reading between the lines, it sounds like Kasdan is acting as head of a writers room that is in the process of breaking a first season for the proposed show, implying that Disney wants all the scripts written upfront before deciding whether to move forward. Still, while an active writers room is hardly full-on production in terms of a financial commitment from the studio, it isn't nothing, either. In a separate interview, Howard even indicated that "tentative" scouting in Wales has already occurred. Fans will note that Wales, along with New Zealand, was a primary filming location for the original film, and both countries are probably in a better position to safely accommodate film production than a few others I could name and/or find myself occupying.

Godspeed to the Daikinis trying to prove the potential of one of Lucasfilm's more neglected properties (aka Our Thing). And let's do DRAGONSLAYER next!

Check this out: News while it's still fresh! The YouTube interview show/podcast We Have Cool Friends has just dropped a new 80 minute interview with Tim Schafer. Like three hours ago!

(I told you it was fresh.)

See you in three weeks we spot some news from two months ago.

It's a listicle ranking. It's someones opinion. Have at it, or just live and let live...

20 BEST POINT AND CLICK GAMES YOU’LL PROBABLY CLICK WITH

Do you remember Legend of Monkey Island? Of course you do, and as you probably know, the site has been offline for nearly a decade. Until now. The web site, possibly best known for its library of Monkey Island animated GIFs, is back with a new design, one that even is responsive. A first among the old Monkey Island fan-sites, and what I can personally only consider a slap in my face.

So, that means two of the classic fan-sites are alive -- The SCUMM Bar too, of course. Get World of Monkey Island going again, and we really can party 2002-style.

If you, like us, have been waiting for some new Psychonauts 2, wait no more.

There’s a lot to unpack here, none of which I’ll jump into, because, y'know… Laziness. But, a punch list: Muscle Man in logo! Ultra-stylized graphics! Jack Black fronting a psychedelic jam that will make our LucasTones particularly happy! More!

The game will be released next year for PC, Mac, Linux, PS4, and the Xboxes.

(Oh, have some screenshots, too.)

(And if you like the song, here it is in MP3 format.)

DoubleFine's classic adventure, Broken Age, and all their LucasArts remasters, Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle, and Grim Fandango can now be played on macOS Catalina. But that's not all. In order to celebrate this fact, DF have made them all FREE to download for the weekend!

If, by some small chance, you don't all these great games (and you're a Mac owner) now is your chance to grab them!

Here's a link to get you going.

Thanks, DoubleFine!

While you count down the hours to tomorrow's Limited Run release of Star Wars Episode I Racer, you can spend your time wondering if a buying a single boxed anthology of the first three four Monkey Island games is something you'd be willing to do.

Due for launch this October, so a bit of time to save your silver coins.

Update by Remi: As you may already have noticed, Escape from Monkey Island will too be bundled. JP's paycheck has already been docked due to his embarrassing error.

If you bowed out of buying Telltale's adventure games around the time they stopped producing Sam & Max or Monkey Island episodes, now's a great time to grab a Humble Bundle of their later releases.

Spend US$1 and receive:
Batman: The Enemy Within – The Telltale Series
The Walking Dead – Season 1
The Walking Dead – 400 Days
Oxenfree and the Oxenfree soundtrack (non-Telltale)

Pay more than the average purchase price and you'll also get:
The Wolf Among Us
Batman: The Enemy Within Shadows Mode
The Walking Dead: Michonne
The Walking Dead: Season 2

Spend over US$15 to also receive:
Batman: The Telltale Series
Batman: The Telltales Series Shadows Mode
The Walking Dead: The Final Season
The Walking Dead: A New Frontier
Heaven's Vault (non-Telltale)

On top of that, profits from the sales will go towards diabetes support and research. So what are you waiting for, go buy the bundle.
