It's almost impossible to find some of LucasArts' older adventure games, because they don't sell or distribute them anymore but they also aren't abandonware. I think a couple of games like Fate of Atlantis and DOTT are available on the LucasArts website in a little package, but I don't know of anywhere you can go and buy a game like The Dig or even Loom. There might be places off the Internet to order it, but if LucasArts themselves don't even sell it off their website, they should let people distribute it freely. Not that it matters for me, because I got a LucasArts classic pack like 6 or 7 years ago if not longer that had Sam & Max, Fate of Atlantis, and DOTT.

Wow I remember playing the demo :bleh:
In fact I still have the original CD Powerplay disk it came on, LOL

If I remember rightly you could by DOTT in a double pack with Sam & Max, I may be wrong tho.

My 9 year old rediscovered DOTT and wants to play but we've lost the original instructions. He can remember much of the game itself it's just that I can't remember how to access the set up menu to change the sound card setting. When I load the game there is no obvious link to any sort of menu. Anybody out there help us??

Use ScummVM, and all your sound problems will go away. The link is already posted in a previous post in this thread. Hey I'm lazy, all right?

These LucasArts adventure games are still available through the LucasArts Classics collection:

DOTT/Sam'n Max Combo Pack
The Dig
Grim Fandango
Full Throttle
The Curse Of Monkey island
Escape From monkey Island

It's sad that games like Fate Of Atlantis and LOOM aren't available anymore, but the games ARE getting old, as are we. To release them as abandonware would be great, but I guess they're waiting to give em away for free untill they plan a sequel of some sorts some time in the future, like Revolution did with Beneath A Steel Sky.
