Great news for all Lucas Arts fans as today, a number of games created by this fallen dev studio will hit GOG.com. As GOG.com’s forum member ‘yyahoo’ discovered, the following games are planned for release later today. While the links for these games were working a couple of hours ago, GOG.com was quick to react and took them – temporarily – down.
So, PC gamers will be able to get their hands on DRM-free digital copies of Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, Sam & Max Hit the Road, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Star Wars: TIE Fighter Special Edition, Star Wars: X-Wing Special Edition and The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition.
We expect GOG.com to officially unveil Lucas Arts titles hitting its platform in a couple of hours, and we’ll be sure to update our story once than happens.
Enjoy and stay tuned for more!
