: : :I'll wait for the sequel to Fate of Atlantis.
: : Speaking of which, what ever happened to that??? Several years ago, there was a Dark Horse comic book miniseries, Indiana Jones and the Iron Pheonix, allegedly adapted from the Lucasarts computer game by Noah Falstein and Hal Barwood, the guys behind Fate of Atlantis. It involved the Philosopher's Stone. (In direct contridiction to the superior Max McCoy novel.) I waited and waited for this game to actually come out, but eventually gave up expecting it. Does anyone know if it is officially dead, or will it perhaps surface again? Either way, I would LOVE a Fate Of Atlantis sequel of some sort. That is still my favorite computer game of all time.
: I share your feelings about Fate of Atlantis. That's the best type of Indy game possible I would think. I liked Dark Forces of course, and Tomb Raider is great, but do you people really want to see an Indy game with a plot as thin as either of those games? Indy deserves something better, like Fate of Atlantis. The story was great, and the characters and situations were too. I've never heard of this supposed sequel game of Indy and the Iron Phoenix, but I'd love to learn more about what happened. I'd also love to learn why Lucasfilm, LucasArts, etc. seem to be giving Indy fans little or no respect. Anyone agree with me?
I *love* Indiana Jones & Fate of Atlantis. And when the game came out in 1992, there was talk about a movie based on the game (first that way ever!), but the rumors died. Fate of Atlantis has a truly superior storyline and strong characters, great music and graphics and very interesting situations.
I would love to see a sequel to it.
