The tentacle’s day has come! The classic LucasArts adventure game Day of the Tentacle has been remastered and re-released, featuring redrawn graphics, remastered audio, and a more modern user interface.

Originally released in 1993, Day of the Tentacle is the sequel to Ron Gilbert’s Maniac Mansion. It was one of the first games that Tim Schafer and Dave Grossman worked on as project leads, with Ron Gilbert contributing to the writing. This remaster was handled by Schafer’s current company, Double Fine Productions, and it includes a developer commentary track featuring Schafer and Grossman, as well as Larry Ahern, Peter Chan, Peter McConnell and Clint Bajakian. Additionally, if you’d prefer to play the game using the original graphics, audio and interface, each of those elements can be toggled on and off on the fly.

Day of the Tentacle Remastered is currently available for PlayStation 4 and Vita, as well as Windows and Mac OS via Steam and GOG.com.
