i cannot be more excited. THANK YOU i have been waiting for this for over a decade. i remember playing LOOM on a friends macintosh. well, his dads macintosh, but either way. i LOVE this game, and am happy to hear Lucasarts is doing a push on their classic games. i hope everyone is as excited to see this news as i am.

LucasArts title to be Jedi Arena?

so Lucasarts is going to announce a 'new old game' today, and i've been doing some digging. apparently on their Twitter page, the Atari 2600 is being brought up, so i pulled a list of all LucasArts games for the 2600. there's a Star Wars rail shooter, but i don't imagine that would be it, and i noticed an unreleased ROTJ game based on ewoks. then my eye slipped onto Star Wars: Jedi Arena which released in 1983 for the 2600. this seems like it would be a good match, as i don't recall any of the graphic point and click adventures being on Atari. fingers crossed on this one, although i'd still like an updated/new version of LOOM. STILL one of the best games they've ever released. also, a new Grim Fandango wouldn't hurt either.
