Night Dive might be teasing Lucas Arts games.

Night Dive just shared a fan made poster for Star Wars Episode 7 and said "Having nothing to do with any Night Dive releases (or does it?) did you know there is a Star Wars Episode 7 poster? We've seen it credited with copyright Disney/Lucasarts on a couple blogs, hopefully it is legit" also, see this article if you have not already:http://mixnmojo.com/news/LucasArts-C...t-of-the-Vault what are your thoughts?

They are probably trying to get the distribution rights of the old LucasArts catalogue and make the games compatible with current OS's.

Previously, after Night Dive posted some Lucas Arts stuff on Facebook and Twitter in late June/early July, someone following them on Twitter asked if they were releasing Lucas Arts titles and someone Night Dive replied saying "We're hoping for it as much as everyone else, that's all we can say at the moment!"

That'd be HUGE. Definitely a big obstacle with Disney, but really, Disney's massive size and possible unwillingness to listen to a smaller crowd like us just replaced Lucasarts' stubbornness.

I'll be excited to see if anything comes to fruition!



If I die today, I'm happy how my life turned out

UPDATE: Night Dive just posted this on Twitter: "Sometimes it takes a while to get the attention of a giant."
and they posted this on Facebook: "Do you have a go-to tactic during a negotiation?"

They've now posted this on their Twitter "There is a lot to look forward to next year, we hope to get some things taken care of to let you know what is going on in the tank here."

I wonder...could it be..?

This will be the big great news for 2014 if they really have got a deal with Disney. Night Dive is one of the most important companies right now in the business, preserving old games and getting those back to the spotlight that the games belong to.

Damn right. It's been really depressing how little Mojo-related stuff has been going on recently. Sure, there's Broken Age and Telltale stuff, but there has been somewhat of a drought in terms of news related to the classics. This could somewhat help with that and if they sell well, we might even have some new material to look forward to. I miss having a new Monkey island to look forward to especially

UPDATE, Night Dive just posted this on Twitter:"We have an announcement ... soon ... very soon.", I hope it's Lucas Arts.
UPDATE #2, they also wrote this:"Very soon might be a bit of an overstatement actually. Soonish. By month's end! Can't be more specific though."

Oh man...considering all the LucasArts-related posts they've made, I really hope they've managed it....but I can't help but worry we'll be let down again. Still, fingers crossed

They hinted at System Shock 2 and I Have No Mouth, both games got released. so it is safe to assume they are working on a Disney deal because of the hints.

I really hope so, they said "by month's end" what if it ends up being April 1st? I don't think I could deal with a joke like that

I hope it's the LucasArts games too, but I wouldn't mind if it was the Humongous Entertainment games that have also been teased. Even though they're marketed for children, they (the Spy Fox games in particular) are quite fun, even as an adult.

UPDATE: It does NOT look like Night Dive's next release is Lucas Arts, because according to this picture they shared:https://www.facebook.com/NightDiveSt...&stream_ref=10
[Look at the screen in the background] it looks like Bad Mojo is their next release. oh well.

I'll do what I can to keep my expectations low for 48 hours.

Yeah, however I still wonder what happened for them to stop with the LucasArts teases...

Well, that was disappointing, the scythe could have been a clue for Grim Fandango...
Anyways, here's some more tweets:
"As original ND projects progress, previews will happen. Rereleases though, it is out of our hands. We do the work to get classics back out."

"The point being, we'd love to just tell you what we're working on re-releasing! But we can't "

So, it seems like they're still working on something else, but it might be a while before we find out what that is.

I still think that their next release is Bad Mojo, but I am still hoping for Lucas Arts.

Night Dive posted this on Twitter:"In the near future we're going to get to preview our next release(s)! So... that is exciting. Right?"
I hope that some of them are Lucas Arts games.

Way hey! Turns out this round of teasing has actually produced something.

Night Dive is releasing 28 classic Humongous Entertainment titles on Steam from today to the 6th of June.

I bought Pajama Sam No Need To Hide When It's Dark Outside yesterday on Steam, it was fun even though it was aimed young children and was short.
