Day of the Tentacle finally returns

One of the greatest adventure games ever conceived finally returns in new attire. Tim Schafer of Double Fine, and the creator of the original Day of the Tentacle, finally gives his old fans value for their patience.

Not too long ago, Tim Schafer told the world that he was working on a new and updated version of another of his great works of art: Grim Fandango. This is turning into a habit.

Schafer has revealed nothing about what to expect from this new version of his classic point and click adventure, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see something along the lines of the Monkey Island remakes.

The new versions of the first two Monkey Island games were good, and this new version of Day of the Tentacle is probably aiming for something similar. Hopefully, they also get the old cast together to record the voices in order to make it sound proper, unless they still have old master recordings lying around.

The time travelling Day of the Tentacle is a masterpiece.

Day of the Tentacle was the sequel to Maniac Mansion, one of the first true graphic adventures designed by Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick. Tim Schafer, who had later designed The Secret of Monkey Island with Ron Gilbert, was asked to make a sequel to Maniac Mansion. Day of the Tentacle was released in 1993 to great critical acclaim, and still stands today as one of the greatest graphic adventure games ever created.

It would, however, be nice to see Schafer and his team do something more interesting with the game.

Just remaking the old game is nice, and I will gladly play it, but Schafer has made a sequel before and could do it again.

A new story with Bernard and his friends within the Maniac Mansion universe would be greatly appreciated. Doesn’t Tim Schafer have the talent to do new great adventure games anymore?

    First off I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick
    question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and
    clear your head prior to writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my thoughts
    in getting my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any recommendations or tips? Thanks!

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
    ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had
    to tell someone!
