History of Lucasfilm games playable exhibit premiering at GDC

The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment (MADE) will feature a playable showcase of Lucasfilm and LucasArts games at GDC 2014 in honor of its upcoming exhibit, "The History of Lucasfilm."

The exhibit, which opens March 17, will be on display of the second floor of Moscone West. Former LucasArts Games employees will hold postmortem discussion of the studio that coincides with the display. Attendees will have access to the following titles:

  • Afterlife
  • Ballblazer
  • Habitat
  • Loom
  • Maniac Mansion
  • Star Wars Episode 1: Racer
  • Star Wars: Rebel Assault
  • Star Wars: X Wing
  • Star Wars: TIE Fighter
  • Zombies Ate My Neighbors

All equipment for the exhibit has been collected through donations. According to The MADE director Alex Handy, George Lucas "pushed the boundaries of our imaginations with his movies."

"He created a studio that produced some of the best movie-backed games franchises, and an amazing array of adventure and action titles across many platforms," Handy said. "We're honored to be able to show some of the titles that were produced even before the LucasArts brand was created."

Disney closed LucasArts last April. For more on why LucasArts devs are coming together to discuss the studio's history and impact on development, check out our interview with industry vet Noah Falstein.

The MADE will also feature several game-related events during GDC, including meet-ups and Doom LAN parties on the expo floor.
