Mutt died on the way back to his home planet

And he'll look at his desk and see this while Williams provides a somber rendition of The Adventures of Mutt:

Back to where it all started, eh?

 

They can excavate the spot where the UFO took off.

 

 

The UFO and the assumption that aliens had anything to do with the technology in early Central and Southern American civilizations was a true spit in the face to actual archaeology.

 

Aliens could've been used much better.

Yes.

By keeping them in Star Wars, for example. ;)

 

Also, potential right here for the best game EVER:

 

Gordy Haab for the music again, I suppose?

Hope he gets to use more of the themes this time...

I really hope we get someone better. The results of comparing his Staff of Kings with Bajakian's Emperor's Tomb are not favourable to say the least.

Apparently it was his first Lucasfilm related game score, at least going by Wikipedia.

Have to say, I agree.

The music to Emperor's Tomb is REALLY good.

And makes nice use of the Raiders March in new ways too.

 

Beats anything I've heard from Haab so far.

So if anyone has any recommendations on his best few tracks, please do say.

 

Does Clint Bajakian still write music?

I'd completely support his return.

 

Alternatively, what has Mark Griskey been up to lately?

His two Force Unleashed scores are some of the better Star Wars music outside the films too.

With nice inventive uses of the Imperial March and Force themes.

 

Otherwise, just get Nami Melumad on the job.

I reckon her Medal of Honor makes for a pretty darn good showcase of how it should be done.

Moved into games, I see. I'm totally out of the loop in terms of most post-2000 games, but I still consider INDIANA JONES AND THE FATE OF ATLANTIS one of the greatest games ever made, and a striking score to boot. I have this re-recording, which beefs up the MIDI files somewhat (although still synthetic):

Agreed. It's on my personal top 5 all time graphic adventures and the score is indeed fantastic. I just wish this new game was also a graphic adventure, but that'd be a huge surprise in this day and age

Semi-related: Anyone have a decent “best of” playlist for the Emperors Tomb soundtrack? Like a good mix of the action with a handful of ambient cues mixed in? 

I have some sort of fan-made soundtrack album.

Might be a bit too long to count asas 'best of' playlist though.

 

Was actually listening to it yesterday.

I like rather a lot of it.

 

Mei Ying's theme is quite beautiful.

The Nazi ones are properly menacing (in campy Indy fashion).

There are some exotic touches for the Middle-East and Asian sections of the game.

And I reckon basically all of the action tracks are quite a lot of fun.

Is a version with only a handful of tracks?

That's the one I have on my computer.

I wonder if there's more available though by now.

I imagine you could aim a point-and-click adventure at mobile audiences.

In this day and age it'd be a bit weird for PC or console or something.

But a phone could run it; and it could become one of the best puzzle games out there.

I just want that game to be third person.  That's my initial hope outside of the usual good story, clever dialogue, and good puzzles that make for a good adventure game.

 

Strange concern; the game is more than certain to be third person. As for the dialogue... even a game can do better than Koepp

To answer my own question; yes, that is the same version.

The source of the confusion may be that the studio that will do this has so far focused on those new Wolfensteins which are FPSs.

Yeah, I remember thinking when Spielberg was making Schindler's List after Jurassic Park, like, shit, I hope he doesn't put dinosaurs in it. 

 

that's a stupid analogy.

 

the proper analogy would have been if spielberg made jurassic park in a found footage style/deviated from regular directorial style.
