Unless you count the LEGO games, there hasn't really been a decent game based on Indiana Jones since the mid-'90s.
In fact, one of the best point-and-click adventure games ever made was 'Indiana Jones & The Fate of Atlantis' on the PC back in 1992, and its sequel, 'Indiana Jones & The Infernal Machine'. You also had the platformer game on the SNES, as well as the very forgettable 'Indiana Jones & The Staff of Kings' on the PS2 and Xbox.
Earlier today, it was announced that Lucasfilm Games was being restarted - the gaming company that began life back in 1983 with Atari games like 'Ballblazer' and 'Maniac Mansion', before it shifted into PC games like 'The Secret of Monkey Island', 'Star Wars: X-Wing', as well as console games such as 'Shadows of the Empire' and 'Star Wars: Pod Racer'.
The first game announced by Lucasfilm Games is an as-yet untitled game based on Indiana Jones, and is being executive produced by Todd Howard, the man behind 'The Elder Scrolls' and 'Fallout'.
Machine Games, who developed 'Wolfenstein: The New Order' and its sequels, are the main developers behind the game. As of right now, we know pretty much nothing about the game, except a few hints we've picked up in the trailer below and from the official statement, which says it will be "a wholly original, standalone tale set at the height of the career of the famed adventurer."
Here's the teaser.
A new Indiana Jones game with an original story is being developed by the award-winning studio, @MachineGames, and executive produced by game industry icon Todd Howard of Bethesda Games Studios. Learn more at https://t.co/cfr49ZN4ei. https://t.co/iUpMVlnC1O
