Such a spectacular game. Unlike most of the graphic adventures LucasArts made, The Dig is possibly one of their most high-class game they've made back in the 90s. The game ran on a huge budget making electronically orchestrated music, vividly drawn cutscenes, highly detailed backgrounds, professional voice work, well written dialogue, and some of the most mind-bending puzzles the gaming industry has seen. It's LucasArts longest game made, of about 6 years.

Unlike most of LucasArts' graphic adventure games like Sam & Max and Maniac Mansion, The Dig contained no slapstick humor, and very little dry humor as well, but it had its reasons; it's a very serious game. It's one of my favorite games I've played as a child, yet couldn't finish until my 13th birthday.

I'm not sure they would've released it on two cartridges, since I don't think transferring data between games was even possible on the SNES. They probably would've just removed or cut down on some of the content.

Still, brought me a smile to see other people who appreciate these games. :)

#2,

Just use your imagination. :)

Anything can happen when you do. The game wasn't released on any platform but the Mac and PC, so when I thought about making this boxart, I was imagining a way to save your data by the use of the second control port, since the SNES had only two ports. I know it isn't reality, but imagination can take you anywhere!

It's a shame LucasArts focus on generic Star Wars titles now. Anyway I like the box a lot.

Ah The Dig, the movie that never happened. I never knew multi cartridge games existed. This is awesome.

#9,

They don't, I just used my imagination. Sorry about that.

The Dig would've been an awesome movie, But the doubts of high budgets... Man, it would've been awesome as a movie though.
