The Making of Full Throttle Remastered
Full Throttle is a 1995 graphic adventure game developed by LucasArts and designed by Tim Schafer. It was Schafer’s first game as project lead and head writer and designer, after having worked on other LucasArts titles including The Secret of Monkey Island (1990), Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge (1991), and Day of the Tentacle (1993). Set in the near future, the game’s story follows Ben, the leader of a biker gang, who is framed for the murder of a beloved motorcycle manufacturing mogul and seeks to clear his and his gang’s names.
