LUCASARTS CHOOSES THE COLLECTIVE TO DEVELOP NEW INDIANA JONES® GAME FOR NEXT GENERATION CONSOLES AND PC

The Collective to Leverage Innovative Technology in Return of Renowned Indiana Jones Action-Adventure Series


SAN RAFAEL, Calif. -- January 22, 2002 -- LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC today announced a development relationship with The Collective, Inc. to create the next Indiana Jones game, marking the return of film's most compelling and celebrated action hero to interactive entertainment. The game, expected to release fall 2002, will be available on a variety of next generation console platforms and PC.

The upcoming title follows in the epic tradition of LucasArts' rich Indiana Jones action-adventure legacy. It will feature an all-new intriguing and historically relevant story set amidst the world's most exotic locales. The game will utilize The Collective's proprietary engine technology, bringing to the series a dynamic new level of fighting action and challenging puzzle elements.

"Similar to LucasArts' collaborations with other premier game studios, The Collective bring considerable technological and development expertise that, in this case, will greatly benefit one of our most important brands, Indiana Jones," says LucasArts' President, Simon Jeffery. "The Collective's efforts on the highly anticipated game Buffy The Vampire Slayer™ were a key component in determining this relationship. The two companies together will bring new and compelling elements to Indiana Jones that will ensure a deeply engaging and fun game play experience."

"My partners and I have admired LucasArts and their commitment to quality and innovation since the early 8-bit days and we are thrilled at this opportunity to bring Indiana Jones to life on next generation consoles and PC," says Doug Hare, vice president of production for The Collective.

I've forgotten the other ones but I know they're also working on the Buffy, Vampire Slayer game and I think also a game called WRATH. I'll see if I can find a list of their games.


All I could find was:

Buffy
ST: DS9
Game of Life
Men In Black

I think it would be harder for them to be worse than Infernal Machine than to be better. And i DON'T mean that in a nasty way, i loved IM i just think this game could pretty much make itself as long as some hard thought is put into it


Deliver me from clear skin and perfect teeth.

Although I would love to see a purely adventure Indy game again,
this is still good news that a non-Star Wars game is being made.


Roads?
Where we're going,
we don't need roads.

Wow!
thats the second largest Monkey head I've ever seen!

Wow,
thats the second largest duck I've ever had in my pants!

YEah, me too. Infernal Machine wasn't that good.


If you would have one wish, what would it be?

-That I wouldn't need one.
