Maybe it's a LBA1.5 or LBA0, although the latter would not make much sense as LBA0 wouldn't really be about Twinsen and Zoe.

In the job oppurtunity on LinkedIn they do call it lba3.

We are looking for a Game Director / Creative Director to help us build the reboot of a cult video game of the 90s: Little Big Adventure.
reboot is quite broad of a term, it's sometimes read as remaking. But it could also mean restarting the franchise in maybe a slightly different way.
So.... LBA Tower Defense game

Nahhhh that would make a lot of people familar with the old games very sad because lba was always do cool because of the open world. My best guess would be they will make a third game. But one that has less dependencies with the first two. Because they are made so long ago. So you would not miss anything when you have not played the first two games. So in the same universe, but maybe not with twinssen as the main playable character.

This is such great news. I think there are mainly two reasons for not calling it LBA3, the first being that it’s (mainly) not done by the original creators, but they’re going to have more of a consultant role in this project. The other thing is that they want to position it as a standalone game to target a wider audience than just the people who played LBA1 and 2.

Yeah, there's no way it can just be called LBA 3 at this time.

Ok, time to get hyped.

Just wondering, Didier and Fred are there, but will it be THEIR game... It's not Adeline after all.

Neko, I hope the founder agrees, can't wait for all the juicy details.

Not sure. Since the job description is just meant for finding employees. Better to get an official answer just in case?

to be honest if I ask him this on linkedin, where he just posted that job description, he might think I am stupid

Lets asume it is for lba3, and we will get more details when he's ready

Hmm I like your thinking Jesse, if we all just assume it's LBA3 maybe we can guilt them into making it LBA3

I'm in. Still, we don't know how much involvement and control over it will Fred and Didier have. Let's also start calling it LBA3: Genesis of the Stellar Entity, as it was planned. Just to be sure they'll do the proper thing.


I for one can't settle for Twinsen Cart, tower defense, card game or online pay to win Twinsen and his Dino Fly farm.
