For a retro nerd like me, there are some game company logos that instill a sense of excitement when they appear on the screen in front of you.
Once such logo would be Lucasfilm Games, which adorned such classics of a bygone era as X-Wing v Tie-Fighter and the Monkey Island series.
Anyway, in a nod to yesteryear a blog post appeared yesterday on Starwars.Com saying:
Lucasfilm’s legacy in gaming stretches back decades. And with Lucasfilm and the galaxy far, far away entering a new and unprecedented phase of creativity, so will the world of Lucasfilm Games — developed in collaboration with the finest studios across the industry.
StarWars.com is thrilled to reveal that Lucasfilm Games is now the official identity for all gaming titles from Lucasfilm, a name that encompasses the company’s rich catalog of video games and its eye toward the future. To mark this new era, Lucasfilm Games has launched social channels on Twitter (@LucasfilmGames) and Facebook (@LucasfilmGames), which will deliver breaking news and more directly to fans. You can watch a special sizzle reel celebrating the history of games from Lucasfilm below; the Lucasfilm Games logo featured above, will appear in all future Lucasfilm Games titles.
Even though there are no known Star Wars games in development at the moment this obviously means that something is up the sleeve, and the prospect of seeing this historic gaming brand reinvented is one that we will be watching closely in the coming months. Just don’t ruin the memories, please.
