If you go to the LEC 20th Anniversary page and go to Sean Clark's profile, you can see a list of all the game's he's contributed to.

It's all well and good listing everything from Loom to FTII. However, if you look under 1991 it says that he was the Scripter and Assistant Designer for an unreleased version of The Dig.

I never knew The Dig was orignially dreamt up around 1991, do you? Does anyone know what it wasn't released?

It went through a bunch of different designers and teams, really. Check out http://dig.mixnmojo.com for more info.

The Dig was ages in development. It went through a few diferent project leaders too, and was delayed from release many times. I have a 4 page article on it in PC Gamer from like 1994, if anyone wants me to scan it.

Ok, I looked through all my old mags and this is what I have:
5 page interview with the main peeps at LucasArts re. The Dig
7 page interview with the main peeps at LucasArts re. Full Throttle
2 page advertisement for The Dig

To scan these to a readable level will mean that the filesizes will be huge! Thus it might take me a while to upload them. I'll only do The Dig article (5 pages) for now, and tell me if you want the others. (ie, Ben)

Man... I want to play the Dig again. I lost my CD years ago. :(


*Ahem*, if anyone has a copy of the game that they don't want any more, I'd be thrilled if they could send it to me. If you don't want to give up your disc, reconsider the word copy... :rolleyes: :ang2:

How would a copy of Word help you? (Great, now I wish my Word could play The Dig.)

Thanks for the scans. Great stuff!

Refering to the page on LucasArts.com where this thread started from, there are so many inconsistencies.
It says Loom was released on the FM-Towns on Sean Clarkes page, but not in the interactive timeline. And on the timeline, they uploaded a re-release boxart of Night Shift!
