Default Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders: Special Edition

Lately, after I saw that LucasArts is continuing their "Special Edition" trend with Monkey Island 2: Special Edition, I've decided to create a Facebook group which calls for a Special Edition of Zak McKracken.

Since I've created this group, a few weeks ago, the legendary David Fox (the creator of Zak McKracken) has joined it (and he even corresponds with the members there).

I really want to spread the word out and get this thing rolling:

Any comments or suggestions are welcome.

You should try to make it an indie project of your own . Although I doubt LA would allow it. Good idea though.

I'd love to see remakes of some more of the classics, Zak MkKraken, Maniac Mansion and especially Loom

i guess they will remake all of the old adventures, because these games are not on lucas arts' website for a long time =)

I don't really know if I want Lucas Arts just to remake everything... though this whole thing is a good sign.

How about a remake in 3d:

Looks alright, I guess.
