The Loom wiki last edited by BeachThunder on 08/03/14 04:05PM View full history

Overview

In Loom, players take control of young Bobbin Threadbare. Following cataclysmic events early in the game, Bobbin goes on a quest of fate and prophecy. Throughout the story, players interact with an enchanted swan with whom Bobbin is mysteriously connected. The interface in Loom is unlike any of the other SCUMM games; Bobbin interacts with his surroundings by using musical enchantments, which replace the standard adventure game commands. The game turned out to not as successful as Lucasfilms had hoped, and therefore the planned sequel never was created.

Loom is referenced in a few other LucasArts games, most notably The Secret of Monkey Island. Examples include a minor Loom character appearing as the pirate in the SCUMM bar who shamelessly advertises Loom, as well as Guybrush's reaction to Meathook. A dialogue selection from that event reads "I'm Bobbin, are you my mother?" Meathook replies, "Your mother was a duck." in reference to the swan from Loom. A Seagull from Loom can also be found by the water outside the SCUMM Bar kitchen.

Soundtrack

The original release of Loom came with an audio cassette containing a 30 minute dramatized prologue for the game.

All the music in Loom is from the 1877 ballet "Swan Lake" by Tchaikovsky.

Rerelease

Loom was re-released on Steam on July 8th, 2009 along with a few other LucasArts classic adventure games.
