LBA 1 and 2 on sale at Steam!
By Darkflame at 2015-10-21 13:19
LBA 1 (enhanced tablet version) and LBA2 (DosBoxed version) are now for sale on Steam!

LBA1 - Enhanced Edition is up for 5,99€ / 5.99USD
LBA2 - for 3,99€/3.99USD

Or both in a bundle for 7,99€/7.99USD

The description for the Enhanced LBA1 edition is as follows;

Boasting an epic story, challenging puzzles and tons of characters and dialog, Little Big Adventure is a certified masterpiece. Enjoy this new PC version including brand new features:

• New gameplay: adjustable throwing and jumping distance (visible trajectory), simplified sections, etc…
• Streamlined, easy-to-use interface with enhanced graphics specially redesign for this version
• Tutorials at the start of the game
• Dynamic ON/OFF hint system
• Zoom feature to provide an overview of the scenes
• Automatic save system, with return to the last checkpoint when you lose a life
• 5 languages available: English, French, German, (voices and text) - Italian and Spanish (text only, voices in English).
• Over 15 hours of gameplay
• A rich and varied blend of platform, combat and puzzle gaming
• An entire planet with dozens of different locations to discover
• Full controller support

It should be noted that it can be controlled either a controller or mouse but not the traditional keyboard controls. Players wishing for the original control's can still buy the normal version on GoG.com however.
Even if you have a few copies of these classics already, all LBA fans should check out the Steam page and review/upvote for the games. Steam is a massive platform and getting LBA in front of more eyeballs can do nothing but help the chance for a 3rd game to get funded.


DotEmu has just posted that people buying the Enhanced Edition now get the old version free too.

Donate for 2Dark - http://www.ulule.com/2dark/

2Dark, to-be-released October/November 2015.

It looks like a lot of (not-child-murdering) fun! It's a score-based survival horror when a unique voxel-based look and some sick murderers. Oh and the main character, Smith, look a little like Fred himself, which is amusing.

http://www.ulule.com/2dark/ Perhaps we should throw tons of money at it so it gets made?

Little Big Adventure mobile version review
By elmuerte at 2014-03-26 23:01
The people from DotEmu were kind enough to provide me with a review copy of the now available mobile version of Little Big Adventure. LBA is available for both Android (Google Play, Amazon Appstore) and iOS. This review is based on the iOS version which I played on an iPhone 5. Given the fact that this site is dedicated to LBA I will not go into reviewing the game design, we already know it is an excellent game. This review will only discuss the differences between the original game, and the mobile version.

Read the full review here.

Little Big Adventure will come to iOS and Android on March 27
By elmuerte at 2014-03-12 19:18
In about 2 weeks time the Little Big Adventure will return on your mobile phone, if you've got an Android or iOS mobile phone. It has been made possible by DotEmu.

There is also a preview of actual ingame footage available. It will show you how the gameplay has been adjusted for a touch interface.

Game Music is Alive! (now sadly Dead)
By elmuerte at 2013-01-13 08:43

On Saturday June 29, 2013 the first Game Music is Alive! concert will be held in Paris.

In Game Music is Alive! an orchestra will perform music from various video games from the past 20 years. They will play music created by Christophe Héral (Beyond Good and Evil), Phillipe Vachey (Alone in the Dark, LBA), Raphaël Gesqua (Fade to Black, Flash Back), Olivier Derivière and Samy Cheboub.

So if you're in the neighborhood you should check it out.

Additionally, there is a poster contest where you can win some goodies and an invitation to the concert, and you'll meet the people involved.

Sadly the concert and thus contest has been canceled

Game quote

Do what I do: gather up the clover leaves and the boxes. You need one box to hold each clover leaf. Each clover leaf will give you another chance when you are in an extremely dangerous situation.
