Kickstarter Spotlight: Point-and-Click Game ‘Thimbleweed Park’ From Ron Gilbert, Gary Winnick
  |  @   |  

Did you grow up playing those classic point-and-click adventure games people like Ron Gilbert, Tim Schafer, Gary Winnick, Dave Grossman, and Brian Moriarty made for LucasArts? If so, here’s a little treat for you.

In 1987 the Gilbert and Winnick title Maniac Mansion was released, which was followed by games like the The Secret of Monkey Island and its sequels, Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders, Loom, and an adaptation Lucasfilm’s Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

Now Gilbert and Winnick want to deliver a brand new game made in that same old-school style. Why? Because they miss them and, according to their Kickstarter campaign page: “We want Thimbleweed Park to be like an undiscovered classic LucasArts’ adventure game you’d never played before. A game discovered in a dusty old desk that puts a smile on your face and sends a wave of nostalgia through you in the same way it does for us.” You can read more about the game and see the Kickstarter video below.

A Look At The Darth Maul Game Canceled By LucasArts (Video)
  |  @   |  

Back in 2010, a new Star Wars video game was being developed by Red Fly Studio that would focus on the Phantom Menace villain Darth Maul and be inspired by Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham Asylum, which had come out the year before.

Ultimately LucasArts decided to cancel the game (the year before Disney acquired the company and we lost games like Star Wars 1313), but a video was recently released that shows off a bit of what the game looked like. Though it appears to be much more like one of the Force Unleashed games than Arkham Asylum, fans of Star Wars and Maul surely would have been thrilled to play it.

You can watch the video below.
