Lucas Arts is Coming to Steam

This is great news, and something we’ve been waiting for since the coming of online-distribution.

Here’s the selection so far

Armed and Dangerous™
Indiana Jones® and the Fate of Atlantis
Indiana Jones® and the Last Crusade: The Graphic Adventure
LEGO® Indiana Jones: The Original Adventure
Star Wars Battlefront® II
Star Wars Republic Commando®
Star Wars Starfighter™
The Dig®
Thrillville®: Off the Rails™

Reggarding their classic adventures it’s far from the full back catelogue, but a decent start. I’m especially keen to give The Dig a try, even if it is regarded as sub-par, as I missed it the first time around. Meanwhile Fate of Atlantis is a classic and Loom is, while rather short, enchanting.

The Monkey family is conspicuous in its absence, but the remake of the original will be appearing on steam a week or so later. Hopefully the sequels will follow.

As for the Star Wars stuff I’ve not followed it at all in recent years, but I’d hope Tie Fighter turns up there eventually.

[edit]the dos games will all have new executables for windows, no scummvm or dosbox required.
