The year was 1988, just after Maniac Mansion. To me THIS was THE point and click adventure that defined freedom of choice in Lucasfilm games (then Lucasarts)... Well, at that time no one knew what freedom was in a videogame, anyhow I loved Zak and his crazy "Douglas Adams" world. The original Steve Purcell's cover (his name is on the crayons box) has been reconstructed in hi-res to fit the round cutout. Hope you like it as I do. ;-)

I've always loved this gorgeus mashup from PETER CHAN, one of the great artists behind many LucasArts games. This work was on the Adventurer #5-1992 (the LucasArts official magazine) and it's about Day of the Tentacle from Dave Grossman and Tim Schafer (duh?). I've never found a t-shirt with it and time ago I crave it almost desperately, so... I manage to make a HI-RES t-shirt out of it. Hope you like the cut-out! ;-)

One could write a book abot the Lucasfilm "games division" (then LucasArts)... and they did. For almost 30 years they created masterpieces (well... 15 years to me). We'll never forget games like Maniac Mansion, Zak McKracken, Monkey Island, Indiana Jones (the 4th movie is Atlantis!!!), Full throttle and Day of the tentacle. And what about X-Wing, TIE Fighter and Dark Forces 1&2? This logo is the most loved and cherished of them all... even now! Recostructed in vectors and hires pixels expecially for you (yes you!!!). The golden man would be proud! ;-)

In 1995 the 11th adventure game from LucasArts saw the light. One of the few Tim Schafer's creation I like... short but focused, nice situations and great music (Gone Jackals rules!!!), although the puzzles were "meh". Now you can have the Full Throttle HANDMADE PIE MENU wherever you like! And I'm not talking about the "new hires one" that looks like a surge out of a vectorizing filter... -_-'
