LucasArts Bringing Old School Adventure Games To iPhone?
iphone-indyThis is a dream come true. During an interview with Joystiq, LucasArts CEO Darrell Rodriguez “hinted” that they’re looking at bringing their old point and click adventure games to the iPhone. That is, if you classify saying, “wink wink, nod nod” about such a scenario as hinting.

This comes off the back of Lucasarts announcing that some of their classic adventure games, like Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis and Loom. will be available on Steam. But all that fails to compare with the potential for point and click retro gaming on the iPhone.

His actual quote is laced with goodness:

“On iPhone, you know Apple’s policy that we can’t talk about a release until it’s ready to release. But it would make sense that we would do something like that if we were to go in that direction … wink wink, nod nod.”

I’ve been raving since I first got my iPhone that the old SCUMM games are perfectly suited to the iPhone, so this has seriously made my day. Honestly, who wouldn’t want to play some Zac McCraken and the Alien Mindbenders on their iPhone? Hopefully we’ll see these games land in the iTunes store sooner rather than later.
