That could be true... but why put an ad for the Young Indy show
at the very end of a computer game? There were plenty of commercials
on tv to bring awareness to the public. And besides, LucasArts and
Lucasfilm, though affiliated, don't work closely. The first one
makes computer games, and the second movies and television shows.
There's no need for LucasArts to pitch tv commercials. Besides, why
be so cryptic and NOT say "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles" on
the game, when the majority of the Indy-following public knows
darn good and well what the name of the show is. It's no big secret.
I firmly believe that they were referring to a computer game that
they had in the works at the time, but for some reason, decided not
to release based on public demand of such a game, or current Indy
game sales. Any other theories? I'd be willing to discuss them. But
until anybody has any better ideas, that's what I'm sticking with.
