Welcome to The Workshop!
Well, hello there fans of LucasArts. Over the last few months you’ve probably noticed a few things happening here at the company – most notably our remake of The Secret of Monkey Island as well as our overall return to the Heritage of the company through Virtual Console on the Wii and digital downloads on the PC. We’ve been blown away by the response!
But this huge response has left us in a bit of a bind. There are a lot of you out there who want info on what we’re doing digitally, and our Twitter feed and Facebook pages just didn’t seem to sate your appetite. You spoke (and man, you guys spoke!), and we answered – so we now bring you this blog – The Workshop @ Lucasarts.
The idea is pretty simple. Keep paying attention to Facebook and Twitter – the news about new games and digital releases will hit there very fast. For those who want to delve a little deeper into how these games get made and who makes them – you now have your spot. Whether you want to learn about how Jesse brought the soundtrack of Monkey Island to life, back-stories on the latest game to hit the Virtual Console, or simply everyday happenings here, you have your spot.
We’ll be at PAX (Penny Arcade Expo) as you’re reading this, and we have tons of great things to reveal, announce, and talk to you about over the coming weeks. Who is this ‘we’ I keep talking about? Well, let me introduce you!
First,there is me – Jedi Mudkip. You’ll see my ramblings on Twitter and Facebook and occasionally in our Forums (which you should join!). Besides myself you have Craig Derrick – he was the Producer on that little remake we did that you guys loved. Shara, Amber and David will be joining us soon – but I can’t tell you about them…yet. We’ve also got Jesse and Tom who do the sound on all kinds of things – Jesse does the soundtracks and Tom does the SFX.
Beyond them, we’ll be having some guest writers from around the company who are working on all sorts of things. The guys who work in QA and compatibility might even stop by. Never know. But for now, we’ll get to posting some on-the-ground reporting from PAX and stop talking about us. You came for the games, after all!
We’re glad you’ve come by, and we hope to make it entertaining enough for you to come back!
