Day of the Tentacle, a cartoon puzzle adventure featuring three unlikely friends battling an evil mutated purple tentacle as it tries to take over the world, was originally released by LucasArts in 1993. It was also Tim Schafer’s first game as co-project lead.

That was 22 years ago. Yikes.

And now, Day of the Tentacle is back in a remastered edition from Double Fine Productions, with all new hand-drawn, high resolution artwork, as well as remastered audio, music and sound effects.

Players will be able to switch between classic and remastered modes; audio, graphics and user interface will be mixable-and-matchable. The game will include a concept art browser and 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 Remastered Edition has been restored and remade with loving care and attention. It’s set to be released in early 2016 on PC/Windows, Mac, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
