Tim Schafer seems to be very active nowadays in the gaming scene. Double Fine was appearing on our screens several times this year – we reviewed those games too. However, they are already focusing on the future. They are now reworking a LucasArts game from 1995 called Full Throttle, whose Remastered, modernized version was announced during the PlayStation Experience.
If LucasArts, think of adventure games: Full Throttle is one of those SCUMM-engine games. In it, we will control Ben in the dystopian future of 2040, sometimes riding that certain Highway 9 in the desert setting. The original game had that certain LucasArts touch to it: if we ended up „dying”, Ben always had a quirky line to drop because of our failure. It’s going to be interesting to see this game in a modern coat.
Full Throttle Remastered is going to arrive in 2017 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and PC. The question: will Double Fine be able to use the licensed music from The Gone Jackals?
