3. Retro VGM Revival Hour - LucasArts (w/ Special Host Robert Menes)

Retro VGM Revival Hour - LucasArts (w/ Special Host Robert Menes)

Now many console gamers may not know the name "LucasArts", although some of their titles have come to consoles. But LucasArts is much more known in the realm of computer gaming, as many of their titles have been released on a plethora of home computer platforms. From the Atari 8-bit family, to the Commodore 64, and later to the Atari ST, Amiga, FM Towns, IBM PC, and Macintosh computer lines, LucasArts made their fortune and glory, best known for their amazing graphic adventure games, which utilized their in-house engine known as SCUMM, as well as some top notch Star Wars games. LucasArts continued to publish and develop many games until 2012, when their parent company Lucasfilm was purchased by Disney. In 2013, LucasArts sadly let go of their internal development teams, and now exists solely as a license holder. However, in spite of this, many of their classic titles are available on services such as Steam and GOG.com, and I highly recommend checking them out. Now, for this episode, I will make mention that LucasArts used a special music engine for many of their games called iMUSE, which allowed for dynamic music; music tracks could seamlessly segue-way into one another to best fit the mood. Some of the tracks featured will demonstrate iMUSE in action. Additionally, some of these tracks were originally MIDI tracks, and I have selected to use recordings as they would sound running through a MIDI module known as the Roland MT-32. Make sure your DOS box has enough free RAM and you have your copy protection codes ready, because we're about to go on a time warp of amazing LucasArts music! =====Game - Composer - Title - Year - System==== 1) Maniac Mansion – Chris Grigg & David Lawrence - “Opening Titles (Commodore 64 version)” - October 5, 1987 (C64/Apple II), March 1988 (DOS), 1989 (Amiga/Atari ST/DOS v2) 2) Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders – Matthew Alan Kane & Chris Grigg - “Main Theme (FM Towns version)” - October 1988 (C64/DOS), 1989 (Amiga/Atari ST/DOS v2), 1990 (FM Towns) 3) Loom – Based on “Swan Lake” by Pytor Ilyich Tchaikovsky; arranged by George “The Fat Man” Sanger & Eric Hammond - “Opening Title” & “Guild of Glassmakers” (Roland MT-32 versions) - May 1990 (DOS/Mac OS/Amiga/Atari ST), 1991 (FM Towns), 1992 (DOS Talkie) 4) Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe – Michael Land - “Opening Titles” - August 1991 (DOS) 5) The Secret of Monkey Island – Michael Land, Barney Jones, Andy Newell, & Patrick Mundy - “Voodoo Lady” & “The SCUMM Bar” (CD Audio versions) – October 1990 (Amiga/DOS Floppy/Atari ST/Mac OS), 1992 (DOS CD/FM Towns/Sega CD/Amiga CDTV) 6) Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge – Clint Bajakian, Peter McConnell, & Michael Land - “Villa de la Booty” - December 1991 (DOS/Amiga/Mac OS/FM Towns) 7) Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis – Clint Bajakian, Peter McConnell, & Michael Land - “The Colonies of Atlantis” - June 1992 (DOS/Amiga/Mac OS/FM Towns) 8) Day of the Tentacle – Clint Bajakian, Peter McConnell, & Michael Land - “Hotel Interiors – Present” - June 25, 1993 (DOS/Mac OS) 9) Sam & Max Hit the Road – Clint Bajakian, Peter McConnell, & Michael Land - “A Pleasantly Understated Credits Sequence” & “King of the Creatures” - November 1993 (DOS/Mac OS) 10) Full Throttle – The Gone Jackals - “Legacy” - April 30, 1995 (DOS/Mac OS) 11) Star Wars: Dark Forces – Michael Land (original arrangements by John Williams - “The Secret Base” - February 28, 1995 (DOS/Mac OS) 12 ) The Dig – Michael Land – “The Ancient City” - November 30, 1995 (DOS/Mac OS) 13) The Curse of Monkey Island – Michael Land (vocals: Dominic Armato, Alan Young, Gregg Berger, Michael Sorich) – “A Pirate I Was Meant To Be” - October 31, 1997 (Windows) 14) Outlaws – Clint Bajakian - “The Ballad of Dr. Death” - March 1997 (Windows) 15) Grim Fandango – Peter McConnell - “Blue Casket Bop” & “Casino Calavera” - October 30, 1998 (Windows)
