Bethesda Softworks has announced that Machine Games will be developing an original Indiana Jones title in collaboration with Lucasfilm Games. Todd Howard will executive produce the title. Check out the teaser below:
There's not much else to discuss, really. Ironically this story comes out a few weeks after the canceled Tomb Raider: 10th Anniversary Edition was leaked, which was then almost turned into an Indiana Jones game. Funny how the world works like that, eh? You win some, you lose some.
Still, there are a few nuggets to drag up from the teaser. There are some books that are shown in the video. There's a book with R. Hageldt as the author, a book called Forbidden Stones by A. Towerls, another called Myths Made Real, and a book called Ancient Circles that's by Todd Howard. Cheeky.
There's a drawing where the writing "Ziggurat Alive?" can be seen, as well as an overnight plane ticket to Rome. If you pause the video at 0:18, some of the writing in the typewriter is legible, particularly "I will be arriving in Rome".
So, what does this mean? Well, it looks like a typical Indian Jones world-trotting affair where Indy will be going to Rome and seeking out mythical stones and a Ziggurat that will be alive somehow. Interesting.

There are few properties that will make me extremely hyped when a video game announcement is made, and Indiana Jones is one of them. Indiana Jones has had a pretty good run of video games over the past thirty years or so, but it's been a long time since we've had a new game. 2011 if you count Indiana Jones Adventure World, and 2009 if you count Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings. I grew up playing Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb, which was great fun then and is still a great time now for Indy fans. Hopefully, the new Indy game can live up to the pedigree.
