Double Fine got in touch with us to talk about Day of the Tentacle, and how they’re working on an HD remastered version for the game for PlayStation platforms! The new version of this 1993 point-and-click classic will include the option of switching between the original look and the HD remaster look, and it will also offer Cross-Save and Cross-Buy between the PlayStation Vita and the PlayStation 4 versions.
You’ll need to wait until 2016 to enjoy this release from start to finish, but be sure to click after the break to check out more screens for the game as well as a comparison of the old graphics vs. the new look so that you can see how much things are changing while still retaining the charm of the original.
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! It was Tim Schafer’s first game as project lead, and is a much beloved cult classic.
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, and some new special features too!
