Making its debut at PlayStation Experience this weekend, the first official Day of the Tentacle Remastered trailer!
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, more than 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 90’s 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 UI 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. It’s coming to PS4 and PS Vita early next year!
FULL THROTTLE REMASTERED
Following speedily in the still-smoking tire tracks of the Grim Fandango and Day of the Tentacle Remastered editions, Full Throttle Remastered on PS4 and PS Vita will complete the trilogy of Tim’s games from LucasArts that we’ve been given the chance to restore. Just like those games, we will make a Remaster with the quality, care, and attention to detail that can only come from involving the original creators.
Full Throttle Remastered will feature all new artwork, with high resolution backgrounds and animation, with each one of the many thousands of frames being repainted by hand. We’ll be aiming to restore the sound and music to a higher quality, and we’ll also fill the game with special features like concept artwork, commentary tracks, and as many other things as we can think of!
