Lucasarts.  Boy! Do I miss them.  I have so many gaming memories thanks to those point n' click SCUMM® wielding adventure masters who brought us gaming delights such as Monkey Island, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis and Full Throttle.

Before the days of the Internet getting news on a game you've been waiting for would normally come from a monthly gaming magazine and now and again you would get a full page spread of that game.  Here's 15 Lucasarts ads from over the years with a few being when they were Lucasfilm Games.  Yes, I am old enough to remember Rescue on Fractalus!

rescue on fractalus ad
The graphics at the time for Rescue on Fractalus were jaw dropping.

lucasfilm games maniac mansion ad
Ad for Maniac Mansion and Zak McKracken.  Back when ads were also an article

monkey island mag ad
Now were talking.  One of my all time favourites, Monkey Island. 

zombies ate my neighbors ad
Zombies Ate My Neighbors ad.  Never had this game.  Still need it for my collection.  Quite a rare game and the SNES version fetches over £50 on Ebay.

lucasarts aircombat classics ad
Easy to forget that Lucasarts also did a few flight sims.  This compilation boasting the value at $199.95.

Star Wars Masters of Teras Kasi
Star Wars Masters of Teras Kasi.  Another game I never played.  Not a big beat-em-up fan.  Much prefer to play with a rubber chicken and a pulley.

Full Throttle ad
Full Throttle.  Quite a confusing ad this one.  Love the game but I don't remember him killing anyone.  Maybe it was just a warning.
indiana jones fate of atlantis ad
A classic adventure game.  Check out that art work.  That's the way to sell video games.  Notice the crossover of their name.  Lucasarts, Lucasfilm Games.

indiana jones fate of atlantis ad
Another take on Fate of Atlantis.  This time a much simpler advert.
lucasarts archive vol 1
Lucasarts Archive Vol. 1.  Now what value that is.  This compilation included Day of the Tentacle and Fate of Atlantis to name a few.  Today if you see it, pick it up as it's becoming harder to find.
Monkey Island ad
Okay, I didn't really need an excuse to pop in another Monkey Island ad.  Seriously though, check out that beautiful artwork.
The Force Unleashed II ad
The Force Unleashed II.  It may not have been the best Lucasarts produced and in fact it was one of the last but the potential and hype were extremely high.  A large marketing campaign produced a number of ads including these two.

The Force Unleashed II ad
The Force Unleashed II.  Vader in trouble.

Knights of the Old Republic ad
Finally, lets end with a classic, a fan favourite.  Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic.  A clever ad that shows quite effectively your ability to choose your own path in the game.  

Did we miss any that you remember?  Let us know in the comments and we will track it down.
