LucasArts Entertainment Company is a leading international developer and publisher of interactive entertainment software for PC and home console video game systems. The company was founded in 1982 by filmmaker George Lucas to provide an interactive element to his vision of a state-of-the-art, multi-faceted entertainment company. LucasArts publishes an extensive line of interactive titles across multiple platforms.
LucasArts' design philosophy is consistent with its movie heritage. Each title combines vital film elements - compelling storytelling, painstaking character development and vivid settings - with the most sophisticated technology available to game makers today. As interactive games more aggressively compete with film and television for entertainment mind-share and dollars, LucasArts is on the cutting edge of visual effects, 3D animation, live action video and interactive digital sound. Additionally, the company makes interactivity - or "gameplay" - a priority in its products since it is that element which distinguishes our art form from more traditional, linear mediums.
