Report: LucasArts was working on Tentacle HD and Origin-like service

New, 23 comments

Before Disney ended LucasArts' in-house development earlier this year, the studio was working on a remastered version of Day of the Tentacle, Kotaku reports.

People familiar with the project told Kotaku that the remaster of the point-and-click adventure game from Dave Grossman and Tim Schafer was never officially greenlight but nearly finished at LucasArts Singapore. It would have been similar to the modern Monkey Island remakes that LucasArts released in 2009 and 2010.

LucasArts was also working on a service that resembled Eelectronic Arts' distribution, multiplayer management and social network service Origin. It was designed to connect games, distribute games and manage in-app purchases, but was apparently canceled before it shipped.

Disney acquired Lucasfilm, Ltd. for $4.05 billion in Oct. 2012. The acquisition also included LucasArts and Lucasfilm Animation. For more on what could have been, check out the details that recently emerged about Star Wars 1313.
