Dr. Fred’s mutated purple tentacle is about to take over the world, and only you can stop him!
Originally released by LucasArts in 1993 as a sequel to Ron Gilbert’s ground breaking Maniac Mansion, Day of the Tentacle is a mind-bending, time travel, cartoon puzzle adventure game in which three unlikely friends work together to prevent an evil mutated purple tentacle from taking over the world!
Now, over twenty years later, Day of the Tentacle is back in a remastered edition that features all new hand-drawn, high resolution artwork, with remastered audio, music and sound effects (which the original 90s marketing blurb described as ‘zany!’).
Players are able to switch back and forth between classic and remastered modes, and mix and match audio, graphics and user interface to their heart’s desire. We’ve also included a concept art browser, and recorded a commentary track with the game’s original creators Tim Schafer, Dave Grossman, Larry Ahern, Peter Chan, Peter McConnell and Clint Bajakian.
Day of the Tentacle was Tim Schafer’s first game as co-project lead, and a much beloved cult classic! This special edition has been lovingly restored and remade with the care and attention that can only come from involving the game's original creators.

Ratings and Reviews
Three reasons you must play—or replay—LucasArts’ classic adventure: (1) The time-jumping story and quirky characters are as entertaining as ever. (2) So many clever puzzles and funny gags. (3) With beautifully updated graphics and sound, a slick new control scheme, and developer commentary, this remaster was clearly a labor of love.
Superb, but difficult
I love puzzle games. Riven, The Room Series, Tengami, etc. so of course I had to get this one.
This game is perfectly executed as far as characters and controls, but it is also extremely difficult! You really need to think outside of the box to move forward. My only constructive criticism is that for cutscenes, you can skip them just by holding your finger on the screen, which is just a bit too easy. And there’s no way to replay it, so key information can be missed.
Seeing this game come to life again was a dream come true. The attention to detail and ability to play the old format if desired make this a must have. I sure hope they release Sam n Max Hit The Road remastered someday soon.
