Let us pour out a pint of grog in memory of Lucasarts, the legendary game developer that Disney is shuttering after acquiring it last fall. My brother and I spent a good portion of our youth crowded around the computer in my bedroom, playing games like Day of the Tentacle, X-Wing, and Dark Forces. X-Wing was particularly suited to our style of collaborative play; he would handle piloting and combat duties while I would remind him when to double aft shields and punch it. Good times.

You can still find classic Lucasarts available through, er, alternative distribution channels. All you need to play them is the ScummVM emulator.

  1. My brother and I (both of us on vents) played X-Wing like that too! Double aft! double aft!
