Today sees the launch of the new squeaky clean and rather slick Lucasfilm website. Featuring rolling behind the scenes photos from Indiana Jones and Star Wars the site has four main sections along the top. Film & TV is so nice to look at with banners for each movie Lucasfilm has produced including Howard The Duck. If you click on Star Wars you are treated to some wonderful concept artwork for the upcoming Star Wars Rebels.
The “What We Do” section leads you to links to Skywalker Sound, ILM and more including Games. Here the games section lists some the recent games such as Tiny Death Star, Angry Birds Star Wars and Battlefront. Right at the bottom of the games section there are a few shout outs to some of Lucasarts greatest moments such as Monkey Island and Grim Fandango. Now I might be clutching at straws here but its Grim Fandango that is singled out on the retro side and a quote mentions the game:
LUCASARTS’ GRIM FANDANGO WAS THE COMPANY’S FIRST GAME TO BE RENDERED IN 3D POLYGON GRAPHICS, WHICH COMPLEMENTED ITS UNIQUE ART STYLE.
Are they wetting our appetite for a remake of the popular point n click game? I really hope so.
Head over to the official site and check it out. http://lucasfilm.com/
