Developer Biography

Hal Barwood is an anomaly in the gaming industry. He is clearly much more seasoned and experienced than the usual twenty-somethings associated with the business, and unlike his contemporaries, most of whom have never held jobs outside of gaming, Hal had a wildly successful career before he was wisely hired by LucasArts.

Hal Barwood was the screenwriter for Steven Spielberg's first theatrical feature, The Sugarland Express (1974), and he also wrote The Bingo Long Traveling All-Stars and Motor Kings (1976) and the best danged fantasy movie ever made, Dragonslayer (1981), among many others.

At LucasArts, Hal has been credited with Writing/Dialogue/Story/Design and Project Leader on games that span the LucasArts spectrum from Yoda Stories to Rebel Assault 2 to Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis and Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine. He is clearly a jack of many trades and master of them all.
