Just a small promotion for my humble Youtube channel, where I have added gameplay videos of nearly all of Lucasfilm Games/LucasArts‘ adventure titles. I played the majority of the games when they were released and most of them several times over the past 20-30 years.
Lucasfilm Games’ first adventure title, Labyrinth, inspired by the Jim Henson-directed movie of the same name. George Lucas, the movie’s executive producer, commissioned a game to be released alongside the film. Labyrinth The Computer Game was published by Activision in 1986.
Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick’s Maniac Mansion, Lucasfilm Games’ first self-published title, and the first game to use the SCUMM framework. This is the enhanced EGA version from 1989.

David Fox, Ron Gilbert, David Spangler, and Matthew Alan Kane’s Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders, the second title to use Lucasfilm games’ SCUMM engine. The game was originally released for the Commodore 64 in October of 1988 and the same year ported to the IBM/PC by Aric Wilmunder. This is the enhanced 384KB IBM version with 320X200 resolution graphics instead of the original 256KB version’s 160×200.
Ron Gilbert, Noah Falstein, and David Fox’s excellent Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: The Graphic Adventure. This is the VGA version released in 1990.
Brian Moriarty’s brilliant Loom. This is the CD-ROM version with VGA graphics and voice-over from 1992.

Tim Schafer and Dave Grossman’s humoristic Day of the Tentacle, the sequel to the 1988 title Maniac Mansion. This is the Talkie CD-ROM version released simultaneously with the floppy disk version in 1993.
Sean Clark and Mike Stemmle’s Sam & Max Hit the Road, based on Steve Purcell’s 1989 amusing and wacky Sam & Max comic On the Road. This is the CD-ROM version released in late 1993 as one of the first adventure titles to feature full voice acting. The CD version besides the superb voice-acting also added four bonus CD Audio tracks.

Over the years I have recorded hundreds of gameplay videos and whenever I have the time, I’ll edit and upload them, all in 4K – Check it out here and remember to subscribe as I’ll continue to add new videos in the future.
