The cruelest month is anything but for fans of Nineties nostalgia and dude-bro shooters

'Full Throttle Remastered' Double Fine Productions

Full Throttle Remastered

One of LucasArts' most beloved point and click adventures since it was released back in 1995, it was actually the first game from the storied studio to be exclusive to PC CD-ROM. A biker gang story set in the year 2040, it was the first LucasArts game that Tim Schafer served as both the project lead and the head writer and designer and was one of the most successful games of the genre. Back in 1995 games like this typically sold around 100,000 copies, but Full Throttle eventually sold over a million. Schafer himself is heading up this remaster at his company Double Fine Productions, and the new version promises updated graphics, sound and controls, plus it will feature a developer commentary track. The game will use the original voice actors' lines pulled from the original recordings over 20 years ago, including actor Roy Conrad – the voice of main character Ben – who died in 2002.
