EDGE - - KNOWLEDGE - Aric’s World www.bit.ly/ar­icsworld

Veteran Lu­casArts cre­ative Aric Wil­munder (known as SCUMM Lord to his col­leagues at the time be­cause of his key role in the en­gine’s evo­lu­tion) has a stack of de­sign doc­u­ments from the stu­dio’s golden era and has started to re­lease a few each month on his site. The col­lec­tion of ex­pan­sive out­lines for all man­ner of clas­sic (and not so clas­sic) games is a trea­sure trove for any­one who grew up play­ing ad­ven­ture games in the ’90s. It reaches back far­ther, how­ever, to 1985’s TheEi­dolon and the fol­low­ing year’s Labyrinth:The Com­put­erGame. There’s also an ever-so-slightly dif­fer­ent ver­sion of the Ma­ni­acMan­sion doc­u­ment co-cre­ator Ron Gil­bert re­cently pub­lished, an uncredited Star Trek SCUMM game, and a cir­cuitous link to the de­sign doc­u­ment of the never-re­leased In­di­anaJones And The Iron Phoenix.
