Gilbert Would "Love" Maniac Mansion Rerelease

Eurogamer reports Double Fine's Ron Gilbert told GDC attendees he would "love" to see LucasArts rerelease Maniac Mansion, saying "I would love for them to re-release Maniac Mansion the same way they did the Monkey Island games. I think that would be really neat." The original Maniac Mansion was released by LucasFilm Games for Commodore 64 and Apple II back in 1987. "I've often thought it would be fun to go through the game and fix a lot of the problems I mentioned and get the puzzle structure more like we did in Monkey Island," he said. "But then other times I think 'do I really want to do that?' Maybe the game really needs to have those flaws. Isn't that a little bit like George Lucas going back and fixing all those problems with Star Wars? Maybe the game really needs to be what it is back then."

What Lucas "fixed" weren't problems.

Han shot first, goddamnit!

I think that's the point he was making, which is why he related it to the sentence that followed:

"Isn't that a little bit like George Lucas going back and fixing all those problems with Star Wars? Maybe the game really needs to be what it is back then."
