Game Information:

Day of the Tentacle, also known asManiac Mansion II: Day of the Tentacle,[2][3]is a 1993graphic adventure gamedeveloped and published byLucasArts. It is the sequel to the 1987 gameManiac Mansion. The game's plot follows Bernard Bernoulli and his friends Hoagie and Laverne as they attempt to stop the evil Purple Tentaclea sentient, disembodied tentaclefrom taking over the world. The player takes control of the trio and solves puzzles while using time travel to explore different periods of history.

Dave GrossmanandTim Schaferco-led the game's development, their first time in such a role. The pair carried over a limited number of elements fromManiac Mansionand forwent the character selection aspect to simplify development. Inspirations includedChuck Jonescartoons and thehistory of the United States.Day of the Tentacleis the eighth LucasArts title to use theSCUMMengine.

Day of the Tentacle artwork.jpgThe game was released simultaneously onfloppy diskandCD-ROMto critical acclaim and commercial success. Critics focused on its cartoon-style visuals and comedic elements.Day of the Tentaclehas featured regularly in lists of "top" games published more than two decades after its release, and aspects have been referenced in popular culture. A remaster ofDay of the Tentaclewas developed by Schafer's current studio,Double Fine Productions, and released on March 22, 2016, for thePlayStation 4,PlayStation Vita,WindowsandOS X.

Day of the Tentaclefollows thepoint-and-clicktwo-dimensionaladventure gameformula, first established by the originalManiac Mansion. Players direct the controllable characters around the game world by clicking with thecomputer mouse. To interact with the game world, players choose from a set of nine commands arrayed on the screen (such as "pick up", "use", or "talk to") and then on an object in the world. This was the lastSCUMMgame to use the original interface of having the bottom of the screen being taken up by a verb selection and inventory; starting with the next game to use theSCUMMengine,Sam & Max Hit the Road, the engine was modified to scroll through a more concise list of verbs with the right mouse button and having the inventory on a separate screen.[4][5]

Day of the Tentacleusestime travelextensively; early in the game, the three main protagonists are separated across time by the effects of a faultytime machine. The player, after completing certain puzzles, can then freely switch between these characters, interacting with the game's world in the separate time periods. Certain small inventory items can be shared by placing the item into the "Chron-o-Johns", modifiedportable toiletsthat instantly transport objects to the other time period, while other items are shared by simply leaving the item in a past time period to be picked up by a character in a future period. Changes made to a past time period will affect a future one, and many of the game's puzzles are based on the effect of time travel, aging of certain items, and alterations of the time stream. For example, one puzzle requires the player, while in the future era where Purple Tentacle has succeeded, to send amedical chartof a Tentacle back to the past, having it used as the design of theAmerican flag, then collecting one such flag in the future to be used as a Tentacle disguise to allow that character to roam freely.

The whole originalManiac Mansiongame can be played on a computer resembling aCommodore 64inside theDay of the Tentaclegame; this practice has since been repeated by other game developers, but at the time ofDay of the Tentacle'srelease, it was unprecedented.
