Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

It's a three day weekend, which means an extra 24 hours of gaming time has just appeared in your life, just like when you put on an old pair of jeans and find a $20 bill in the pocket.

How will you use it? So many options!

It's OK you don't need to think for yourself, we'll tell you what to do - Play this all-time classic adventure game at this crazy low low discounted price! There's literally not a better answer available to you and anyone who says there is is clearly deluded, or a huge liar, or maybe both.

If you encounter them simply raise your hand up in front of their face, and repeat after me "Speak the newly-mutated tentacle-hand bozo!!" That should put them in their place.

Now you are free to enjoy Day of the Tentacle Remastered! Have fun!

About This Game

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.
