A while back, GOG.com -- a website specializing in re-releases of classic games for current operating systems -- began teasing that a new games publisher was about to be added to their selection. By Monday, thanks in part to user snooping and in part to GOG accidentally leaking game titles onto its forums, we knew that the site had gotten its hands on several LucasArts titles from the '90s, titles that passed into Disney owernship when the company bought Lucasfilm back in 2012. Yesterday, the games finally became available to purchase.
So, which games can you get? Well, for Star Wars fans, the classic flight simulators X-Wing and TIE Fighter have hit digital distribution for the first time ever, complete with all of their expansions, for $10 each. The classic Star Wars RPG Knights of the Old Republic is also in the mix, though you could get that elsewhere online before. In another digital first, GOG has also added the adventure game Sam & Max Hit the Road for just six bucks, and the selection is rounded out with Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis and The Secret of Monkey Island.
If you grew up playing computer games in the '90s, you might already be shaking with excitement, but things could get even more exciting in the coming months, as GOG has already promised that its LucasArts selection will grow to more than 20 games in the future.
