Apparently there was one according to a fan site, at least one for the Indy Desktop game.
I would have loved to have made a story in which Indy has to fight a physical incarnation of Kulkulkan summoned by that Nazi general. (the fight would play out like that fight in the rancor pit in Yoda Stories, the big snake exploding into little snakes at some point)
Or a mission in which Indy has to infiltrate a German submarine base (I know the German Navy did not have submarine bases in Central America, just some artistic freedom on my side)
So many improvements I would have liked to have brought over from Yoda Stories such as various weapons in each story (Lugers, German Machine guns, Bow-and-arrows, and Spears would have limited use like the Blasters and Blaster Rifles in Yoda Stories, and there would now also be grenades)
And perhaps some more supernatural entities
heh I would not have minded to see or create a Desktop Adventures 2 with similar graphics to the first game (or cartoony ones), but perhaps loosing the grid movement gameplay.
And perhaps Indy would operate out of Barnett College, from there going to Central/South America, North Africa/South Africa, Europe, and Asia.
And the same of course for Yoda Stories, adding volcano planets, ocean planets, city planets/floating cities, the death star
Or that Star Trek Desktop Journeys idea, the player assuming the role of a pint sized James T. Kirk, interacting with Spock, McCoy, Scotty, Uhura, Sulu, and Spock, and meeting other familiar faces like Kor, Koloth, Harry Mudd, Trelane, Andorians, Gorn, Klingons, Orions, Romulans, Tellarites, Tholians, and androids, and Nomad units.
Perhaps even a little mini game in which you get to fly the Enterprise and have to fight various starships such as Klingon D7s, Romulan Warbirds, and even the Doomsday Machine.
Darn, I am completely nostalgic again for games that only make up a couple of MBs.
I have seen so many magazines and game review websites put these games down for not being full installments in their respective series, and yet so many gamers look so fondly back at them.
I really wish Lucasarts had continued the Desktop game series as they had a lot of potential.
Frustrating that one can not send PM's on this forum as I would have liked to have send you the link to that file I mentioned in my own post (Windows 3.11 on Dosbox, pre configured with Indy Desktop)
I rather don't do something I might get in trouble with with the moderators like posting the link here directly (even though the game is abandonware and you own it legally)
