If you check your Steam account you’ll see that LucasArts’ classics are now up and available for purchase, as promised.

The Dig, LOOM and the old Indie games are a piffling £2.99.

The rest are £12.99, apart from Republic Commando at £6.99.

£3 really isn’t a lot of money. Give one of them a shot, at least.

    As far as under-appreciated classics go, The Dig is a surprisingly good game.

    And all these games are even available in Europe, on the same date. It’s a miracle!

    C’mon! These point and click games by Lucas arts are far better than most crap that is released today.

    Just hope they release Grim Fandango, Sam and Max Hit the Road and Day of the Tentacle on STEAM this year.

    BTW, The Dig rulezzzz.

    Oh, and Full Throttle, forgot about this classic.

    Yep, already snatched up Loom. The Dig was good, just very, very short, rivaled even Full Throttle for its shortness. Best thing about it though has to be Robert Patrick.

    The picture on this article uses an Eagle-type filter.

    Whomever is responsible must die. Now.

    You can turn the filter off I think.

    Anyone who hasn’t played Loom already should do so. It’s often overlooked when people talk about Lucas adventures, but it’s really rather lovely.

    Gundam, could you comment on how Loom performs under current PC’s especially in the graphics department?

    I’m tempted to get some of them, but I dread how they’d look stretched to 1680×1050…

    I remember scratching my head for good with Loom, but indeed an awesome game. Bad thing when Internet wasn’t around :/

    Tbh, you’d probably be better just downloading SCUMMVM and playing ‘Loom’ on it, already experiencing audio cutting out on the steam download. It’s got the Pixel smoothing á la SCUMMVM also and default is windowed mode but can be toggled to fullscreen.
