LucasArts Partners with Steam!
So that’s what got the LucasArts Twitter team all excited yesterday!Â LucasArts have partnered up with Steam, adding a whole bunch of their back catalogue to the digital distribution platform. From Wednesday, July 8 2009 you will be able to get from Steam:
- Armed and Dangerousâ„¢
- Indiana JonesÂ® and the Fate of Atlantis
- Indiana JonesÂ® and the Last Crusade: The Graphic Adventure
- LEGOÂ® Indiana Jones: The Original Adventure
- Star Wars BattlefrontÂ® II
- Star Wars Republic CommandoÂ®
- Star Wars Starfighterâ„¢
- The DigÂ®
- ThrillvilleÂ®: Off the Railsâ„¢
On July 15th, you’ll also be able to get The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition, a completely re-imagined version of the first game in the series that adds updated high definition graphics, a re-mastered musical score, and full voiceover to the classic adventure game originally launched in 1990.
Got to say, out of that whole list, the think that has me really excited is the chance to easily get hold of Indiana JonesÂ® and the Fate of Atlantis easily again. Also looking forward to The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition. Might even take a run through LOOM and The Dig again too. I’m a big fan of Steam as an easy digital distribution system, and it’s really nice to see LucasArts embracing the PC once more.
