Classic LucasArts games arrive on Steam

— 2:44 PM on July 8, 2009

You may not have to dig through old boxes and use third-party tools to play those old LucasArts games anymore. As Shacknews reports, a handful of them have appeared on Valve's Steam distribution service at bargain-bin prices.

The list includes both old classics like The Dig and Loom as well as fairly recent titles like Lego Indiana Jones:

  • Armed and Dangerous - $9.99
  • Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis - $4.99
  • Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: The Graphic Adventure - $4.99
  • LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventure - $19.99
  • LOOM - $4.99
  • Star Wars Battlefront II - $19.99
  • Star Wars Republic Commando - $9.99
  • Star Wars Starfighter - $4.99
  • The Dig - $4.99
  • Thrillville: Off the Rails- $19.99
  • Shacknews says the games are "self-running executables" with full support for Windows Vista and Windows XP. LucasArts reportedly didn't use third-party compatibility software like SCUMMVM, but it did add support for higher resolutions in some of the older titles.

    Incidentally, Monkey Island games are notably absent from the list. There's a good reason for that. The Shack wrote a couple days ago that a remake of the original The Secret of Monkey Island with new, high-res graphics will hit Steam next week.
