Adventure games (and related games) by LucasArts and licensees

My first website was MIC World, which was created in 1996 as a general website that covered all of my interests.  The adventure portions were spun out to become the Monkey Island Mega Monkey page in 1997, which became known as Mega Monkey in 1998.  It had individual sub-sites that covered each of the adventure games by LucasArts, and the games that were created as sequels to those games.

Since I am merging all of the Mega Monkey content into The Adventuress, this page was created to serve as both a landing page for the Mega Monkey redirect (with a list of the Mega Monkey subsites that covered each series), and as a handy list of those games, both by LucasArts and by the other companies that continued them. The names of the former Mega Monkey pages that covered each franchise is indicated in parentheses.

All of these game properties that were not developed by LucasArts were licensed from Lucasfilm, as Lucasfilm still owns the rights to these properties.  The exception is Sam & Max.  LucasArts licensed Sam & Max from Steve Purcell to make Sam & Max: Hit the Road.  The rights to Sam & Max still belong to Steve Purcell.
