Space: The Retribution, is a simple yet fun game. It’s rather short, but it’s free and worth a play. It’s a space shooter with RPG elements, I recommend playing it.
From the game: “Space is no longer safe. Your mining stations have been taken over by an unknown enemy. It’s up to you to liberate them.”
Lucasarts may not be an “indie company” but they are some people that revolutionized gaming as we know it, and guess what? They’ve jumped onto steam. Yes, it’s that time! Only time will tell all that they will add to steam, but the games they have added so far are located on the steam page here.
According to the news report by Steam News:
“This effort is going to make it possible to introduce a whole new generation of gamers to LucasArts’ classic games,” said Darrell Rodriguez, president of LucasArts. “It also gives more people a chance to play our games by making them available long after they’ve disappeared from store shelves. We hope our fans are as excited as we are about our plans and we can’t wait to share what’s coming next. This is just the beginning.”
What other games do you think they will release? Are you hoping for Jedi Knight?
Oh yea, to add insult to injury, I know you’ve heard of the Secret of Monkey Island update…well:
“The Monkey Island celebration continues on July 15 when LucasArts publishes The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition, a completely re-imagined version of the first game in the series that adds updated high definition graphics, a re-mastered musical score, and full voiceover to the classic adventure game originally launched in 1990. The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition will be made available on Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and PC via Steam and other online distribution channels.
Future announcements about the re-release of LucasArts’ back catalog titles will be made through LucasArts’ Twitter feed at http://twitter.com/lucasartsgames.”
