By Darkflame at 2012-02-18 12:15
Can you act? draw? sing? animate? knit? do stop-motion? use flash? CG?

How about any medium of storytelling whatsoever?

We are inviting everyone and anyone to help us out with our latest project - a multi-medium non-liner movie of Little Big Adventure 1!

We arnt looking to be professional here, merely as creative and as imaginative as possible. Anyone is free to do any scene...however they like!

Full details and a poll are here:

If you think you can do a scene, or even a few, please reply to the poll so we get an idea of numbers.

The whole SOPA/PIPA thing
By elmuerte at 2012-01-18 22:29
As you may have noticed, a lot of sites have gone black or stopped updating on the 18th of January 2012. This is all done to give off a signal to the US government that their proposed laws called SOPA and PIPA are a terrible thing.
The main reason why the MBN didn't went black was that I didn't prepare anything.
But just to make things clear as possible, with laws like SOPA and PIPA the MBN would not even exist. A lot of the activity on the MBN revolves around user creations, a single spoof of a movie containing Twinsen would be reason enough to remove the MBN from the Internet. But its not just user creations, but also a simple avatar of a Disney character or a quote from the Harry Potter books posted on the MBN could be a reason to kill off the whole site.

So if you live in the US, don't forgot to do your part and save the internet (see links below on what you could do). But it's not just laws in the US that form a problem. The same media giants are also pushing for similar laws in other countries. So keep your eyes open.

Official LBA1 remake on the way (and an interview with the team)
By Graxer at 2011-12-29 14:42
GOG.com just realeased their interview with the team who created LBA. In that interview they seem to reveal an official LBA1 remake and the possibility of an LBA3 if it is successful!

First, as we have such honorable guests, please let us know, if you can reveal, on what projects are you currently working on?

We are working on the remake of LBA1 :-) Individually, we are involved in other projects we can’t tell. Fred just released a small puzzle game he did himself: “bOxOn”, you can find it on his website ludoid.fr.
Here is the full interview

I think this is great news and am really looking forward to seeing how the remake goes and how true it is to the original!

Little Big Adventure 2 (Twinsen's Odyssey) now available on GOG.com
By elmuerte at 2011-10-20 19:59
Only a week after the re-release of Little Big Adventure, GOG.com has now re-released Little Big Adventure 2, also known as Twinsen's Odyssey.

As is usual with releases of classic games on GOG.com, you will also get some extras when you buy LBA2 (which will cost you only $5.99). The extras include a wallpaper, various design sketches, another development team photo, and probably the most interesting part: the design script for the game. Sadly (for some), this script is in French.

GOG.com re-releases Little Big Adventure
By elmuerte at 2011-10-10 21:41

At the end of 1994 Frederick Raynal and his team at Adeline Software released Little Big Adventure, a unique action/adventure game. Over the years it became increasingly more difficult to get a hold on a copy of LBA. And eventually only an occasional second hand copy could be found.

Now 17 years after the initial release, GOG.com re-releases the game for the world to re-experience the wonderful world of Little Big Adventure.
For a mere $5,99 you can buy a digital copy of Little Big Adventure at GOG.com. This release has been fixed to work properly on modern systems. It contains full text and speech for English, French and German; and text-only for Italian and spanish. It's also free from any pesky DRM. So spread the word an let others experience what they have been missing out on.

Note: this is not a joke (unlike last time)

Important! For some reason the links do not work when you're on the front page. Please go to the forum thread first, and then click the link.

While there is no chance any time soon of a LBA3, its nice to know the creators are still thinking of their creation.
