I think it’s safe to say that Adventure Games are on the fast track back into the public light. With Telltale Episodes expanding onto the consoles, and revitalizations of classic series’ like Monkey Island a whole new crowd is getting to experience the wonders of the genre. But whose to say they shouldn’t get to try out the classics as well? Lucasart’s and Valve agree, and starting this Wednesday (July 8) some of their finest titles will begin appearing on Steam!
• 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™
Future additions to the roster of classic hits can be expected as well. On July 15th an HD Remake (with complete voice acting, and reworked soundtrack) of The Secrets of Monkey Island will be released on the PC through Steam and other digital distribution platforms, but as well as on Xbox Live Arcade. And if you can’t wait that long, the first episode of Tales of Monkey Island (a 5 month long episodic follow up series to Monkey Island) will be released tomorrow on PC, with a WiiWare launch following sometime later.
