Rev it Up: LucasArts Classic Full Throttle is Getting Remastered

If this announcement sounds familiar, it’s because Double Fine first revealed they were working on a remastered of LucasArts’ motorbike point and click Full Throttle last year. Full Throttle, which uses the famous SCUMM engine, originally came out in 1995. Now more than twenty years later, we have a first look trailer showcasing Double Fine’s restorations.


Compared to the classic version, the graphics are smoother and far more stylised. Double Fine has stated on their blog that the remastered version features brand new hand-painted artwork with high resolution backgrounds and animations, in addition to improved quality sound and music.

The move to overhaul Full Throttle for a modern audience follows the remastering of Grim Fandango and Day of the Tentacle, the latter of which was also released for iOS devices.

Full Throttle Remastered is out in 2017. It will be available to play on PC, Mac, Linux, PS4 and PS Vita. What do you think about Full Throttle? Is it an ageless adventure game? Let us know in the comments.
