LucasArts shuts down
LucasArts, the studio that put out the original Sam & Max game, Hit the Road, back in 1993 has closed its doors today.
Sam & Max haven’t had an association with LucasArts for a long time (Steve Purcell owns the rights), but it’s a shame to see them shut up shop. You’ll probably be aware that Disney acquired LucasFilm last year and they’ve decided to make LucasArts a licensing model to “minimise the company’s risk”.
Best of luck to the staff who lost their jobs.
