Zak McKracken mp3 and ...uhh... stuff

Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders by Lucasarts (then Lucasfilm) still is one of the best adventures around, what with its lovely b-movie/tabloid humor, weird puzzles, great writing, quirky music and unsurpassed SCUMM interface. Unfortunately though the game is quite rare and difficult to track down even on eBay, but you can still download its theme in mp3 or wav format for free here. Oh, and do have a look at the impressive, remakes featuring and perfectly designed Zak McKracken Archive too.

  1. My grandpa had a copy of this game I would play at his house. It was one of my favorites (along with Leisure Suit Larry, oh what a childhood!)

    Anyway, I did alright but copy is the operative word here. I never found out where he got all of those games he had but they were pretty much all copies. I couldn't ever complete Zak for this reason because it asked me for some sort of password when trying to fly on the plane out of the US.
