[2.21] is working on a new LBA


Looks like after almost 24 years LBA is finally going to get a new game, made by the 2.21 video game studio. Didier Chanfray is one of the founders, and Frédérick Raynal is in the creative board. This is going to be interesting.

I could not be more excited. Had to log back in (been a long time) when I saw this pop up in my news feed monitor for key words "Little Big Adventure".

Haven't logged in or posted on this forum in just over 14 years, but I'm glad to see that some familiar names from "back in the day" are still keeping this community alive.

Fantastic news about a new LBA game, at long last. Fingers crossed it lives up to all of our hopes and expectations.

Hope you are all well!

Just discovered this by coincidence and it completely made my day! Guess it goes to show that patience can pay off in the end :-)


Now to go see if I can install the original games on modern Windows and revisit my childhood....


Thank you, Didier & Fred, and thank you everyone at MBN for keeping the interest going over the years!

Why do you think it's called LBA? Little Bulge Adventure

Great to see some old "faces" around here.
Will the new game make this forum active again?!

Yes, indeed, that was keds. I remember being a big fan of their artwork. I also have fond memories of your fan music! Good to see you again.
