Established in 1990, LucasArts Entertainment Company became home to LucasFilm Games, and with it, it inherited almost a decade of gaming history. LucasArts also played host to several other Lucas outfits, including Industrial Light and Magic, however a restructure in 1993 saw these other non-videogame operations moved into the newly created Lucas Digital, resulting in LucasFilm Games finally being re-branded as LucasArts.
It was soon clear that the changes were literally skin deep, as LucasArts continued its predecessor's high quality mix of titles based on Lucas' film properties, such as 3D space shooter, X-Wing, and original IP like point-and-click adventurers Day of the Tentacle and Sam & Max Hit the Road. This continued with classics such as Escape from Monkey Island, the fourth title in the Monkey island series, and Gamecube launch title, Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader.
Currently based in San Rafael, California, LucasArts remains one of five companies in the Lucas group, including Lucasfilm, Lucas Digital, Lucas Licensing and Lucas Learning.
