I'm pretty certain it's not official.. unless it was never released in English? I don't know much about non-English versions.
But cool nonetheless.

You'll have to find proof this version is official first. I think you're wrong. I know there a fan made game using the FM Towns graphics, and I suspect that's the version you mean.

Upload it to the zone, I'll have a look. I'd be very surprised if it was official though, as I've never heard anything about such a version.. I've visited lots of Lucasarts fan sites, downloaded several Lucasarts collection torrents, etc.. and never heard of an official 256 color PC version until you mentioned it in this thread. Would be very interesting if it did indeed exist, it would be even more rare than the FM Towns version.

What you have there is "The New Adventures of Zak McKracken", a fan sequel (Zak2.exe) made in Adventure Game Studio (AGSflashlight.dll, the rest is linked into Zak2.exe, which is UPX compressed, but if you decompress it and look inside you can also find the evidence), using ripped graphics, apparently from the FM Towns version. You can find it on any AGS site and many other places.

so...the game I have uploaded is zak 2 ?
looks identical to the old one
I'm so vague
just tested first stages are identical but when you go to the 3d stage...says meanwhile....!!!...the history is different
if they made a sequel using idem engine and graphics....maybe a port of zak 1 exists...

I think that official page professedly is http://www.lucasfangames.de/
but they have disappeared
