A bunch of classic LucasArts games have been added to Steam’s library in recent times. This includes many of the games that helped shape gaming way back in the day, from Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb to the Monkey Island games, all the way to Star Wars: Episode I Racer.
Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb caught might attention because the trailer on the Steam page featured Jones pimp-slapping a bunch of bad guys, and there are some super hot sexy Asian chicks in the game barely wearing anything. This is how you know this was a good game made back during a time when the Sony censorship policy wasn’t ruining the FPM (faps per minute) for core gamers.
If you forgot what Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb was like, there’s a cool, old-school trailer for when the game originally launched on the PS2 and OG Xbox way back in 2003. Check it out, courtesy of IGN.
Oh yeah, this was back when you didn’t have to question what sort of pronouns to use for a Twitter profile with a furry avatar, or constantly apologize to mentally unwell Democrats who will dox you and get you fired and force your life into financial ruin because you refused to say “I’m with her!”.
But beyond Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb and Escape From Monkey Island, there’s also The Curse of Monkey Island, The Scret of Monkey Island: Special Edition, Mosnkey Island 2 Special Edition, the Monkey Island Collection, and Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine. Also, one of my favorite games of all time, Outlaws, is also now available on Steam.
It was like Call of Juarez before Call of Juarez was a thing./
Additionally, there’s Star Wars: Episode I Racer, which actually launched as a DRM-free title on GOG.com back in May of 2018. So it took a while but it looks like Disney is re-releasing all the worthwhile LucasArts titles back onto digital distribution services for whatever reason.
