On October 9th, 2000 the new home for Little Big Adventure fans was born. In the past years many of the initial members are still very active on the forum and the community has grown to over 300 active member.

In the past six years a lot of things have happened. More and more became known about how the games are constructed. This resulted in numerous tools to view and modify the game content. Because people started to create mods for the original games, most notable is the LBA Prequel mod.
Besides tools people have started work on reimplementing the LBA1 and 2 engines. Also, Sebasien Vianny (who orignally working on both LBA1 and 2), created an MS Windows port for LBA1: LBAwin. Which will allow you to play the game on modern computers without the need of emulation.
Other team efforts concerning the LBA games are:And then there are a lot of fan creations from drawings, stories and music to even hand made puppets and clay figures.

In short the community around the (almost) 12 years and 9 year old games is still very active.

Congratulation to all of us to make this possible.
