Release: Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders
Great alien googly moogly!Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders a brain-twisting Lucasfilm adventure classic, is available now on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux - for the first time in digital distribution - DRM-free on GOG.comFollowing the immense success of Maniac Mansion, Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders was the second adventure game ever released on the classic SCUMM engine. The two games share plenty of similarities, but there is no denying that for Zak McKracken development team, ambition and was the name of the game. You'll control four characters, complete multi-pathed puzzles, and travel all over the globe. The game's unique cash mechanic comes into play here: your plane tickets cost money, you'll actually have to buy the items you might need (not just, well, steal 'em), and you'll even end up with a phone bill you may or may not want to pay off at some point. Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders is an early Lucasfilm adventure - we do recommend tackling it with a walkthrough on-hand, lest you run out of cash, or air, on Mars, and die - but it's also a chance to experience one of adventure's earliest and biggest classics.Relive adventure history and save the world from dumbifying alien lasers in Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders, available right here for the first time in digital distribution!
