I miss Lucasarts, or in the early days Lucasfilm Games as they were previously known. They have released a plethora of classic video games over the decades from Rescue on Fractalus way back in 1984 to the escapades of Guybrush Threepwood in the Monkey Island point n' click adventure games powered by the SCUMM™ system.
Even though in their latter years the quality of games from the studio started to decline, they will be remembered as an important part of video game history often pushing the boundaries of the technology available at the time.
In 2008 Rob Smith released a book on Lucasarts, Rogue Leaders which takes you on a journey through Lucasarts' journey from their humble beginnings to their bigger projects involving the biggest movie franchise of all time, Star Wars.
In 1982, George Lucas started to think 'this videogame thing has potential' and established a department of Lucasfilm, which he christened Lucasarts, to develop some projects. This book is a comprehensive history of LucasArts, told through amazing concept art and interviews with its legendary games designers, including artistic treasures from its most popular and innovative videogames. This is a must for all videogame players, young and old, as well as the legions of "Star Wars" fans!
