Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders is a graphical adventure game, originally released in 1988, published by LucasArts (known at the time as LucasFilm Games). It was the second game to use the SCUMM engine, after Maniac Mansion.
The plot follows Zak, a writer for trash newspaper the National Inquisitor, and Annie, Melissa and Leslie, three Yale coed students, in their attempt to destroy a machine created by nefarious aliens that is slowly reducing the intelligence of everybody on Earth.
Originally released on the Commodore 64, it was later ported to the Amiga, Atari ST, and PC with EGA graphics. A version was later ported to the oddball Japanese FM Towns system, this one with VGA graphics and CD music. The game was programmed by Matthew Kane and David Fox.
It is easily the least popular of the Lucas Arts adventure franchises, and has never recieved a sequel.
