Michael Rubin has written, and is currently touring with, a book on George Lucas and the Digital Revolution, called DroidMaker. This is interesting enough for me as it is, but the great thing about it, is how you can download chapter 1 and 18 off of his blog. This is interesting because chapter 18 deals with the creation of the Games Group, later to become Lucasarts Entertainment.
And that is interesting because they remain, dispite many quite ‘bleh’ titles, one of the most significant game companies in the world.
And while you ponder that, you can check out some of this cool Sam & Max swag (I will kill for those two prints. Kill I tell you!).
