Lucas Arts: Rise and Fall of a Pioneer

LucasArts Entertainment Company, LLC was an American video game developer and publisher. The company was once famous for its innovative line of graphic adventure games, the critical and commercial success of which peaked in the mid 90′s. In its final years, it primarily published games based on the Star Wars and Indiana Jones franchises.

Following the acquisition of Lucasfilm by The Walt Disney Company in 2012, Disney closed down LucasArts as an internal developer on April 3, 2013, and laid off its staff, shifting the company into a licensing entity to develop future games based on Lucasfilm’s properties.
