Developer: Double Fine Productions, Inc.
Content Rating: Teen
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!’).

The genre has advanced, but Day of the Tentacle shows why it was a revered classic in the LucasArts and SCUMM days. I played this one in pretty much one straight shot through, and while you'll really want to be patient (or have walkthroughs handy), you'll likely have as much fun as I did.
Despite the '90s production values, Day of the Tentacle Remastered manages to hold up incredibly well over two decades later. Tim Schafer's signature writing is very much present, and any issues with the production are completely overshadowed by just how incredibly clever the story and direction are. Throw in some memorable puzzles and a plot that is equal parts hilarious and ridiculous, and there is little reason to ignore one of LucasArts' best point-and-click adventures.
