The wait is over! The countdown on the front page has finally reached zero, and the first batch of DRM-free LucasArts games are on sale in the GOG.com store. The community has been wishing for this deal pretty much since the inception of GOG 6 years ago. The shocking surprise was somewhat spoiled by a leaked forum post yesterday, but I don’t think anyone minded.
Here’s a list of the first 6 games available, the first 3 of which have never been released through a digital distribution platform before:
- Star Wars: X-Wing Special Edition
- Star Wars: TIE Fighter Special Edition
- Sam & Max Hit the Road
- The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition
- Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
- Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
According to the announcement, this is only the first few of 20+┬átitles to come. I’m really looking forward to my favourite classic adventures: The Day of The Tentacle, The Dig and Grim Fandango; and of course some nostalgic Star Wars titles, like the Rebel Assault and Jedi Knight series, and even that horrible Force Commander that I played such a long time ago. I hope non of those games will miss the line-up.
