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!’).
Players are able to switch back and forth between classic and remastered modes, and mix and match audio, graphics and user interface to their heart’s desire. We’ve also included a concept art browser, and recorded 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 was Tim Schafer’s first game as co-project lead, and a much beloved cult classic! This special edition has been lovingly restored and remade with the care and attention that can only come from involving the game's original creators.

Ratings and Reviews
greatest game ever
I recently hacked my NES classic, and the first game i added was Maniac Mansion. Upon playing it for hours at work while we were slow with my co-workers, i started to recall that there was a sequel.
I went home and picked up DAY OF THE TENTACLE. It's a great game, and most of the puzzles take thought, but you can figure out without getting help. Excellent story, excellent graphics, and a game thats totally worth picking up. Also, if you dont want to illegally hack your NES classic, Maniac Mansion is included in this game as well...
a true remaster
This was one of my favorite games growing up -- and I was excited just to play it again. I wasn't anticipating the updated graphics or quality-of-life improvements, and was truly blown away by the quality of this version!
The company was also prompt in response to my queries and quick to update the app when the big catalina update happened. I hope they tackle other LucasArts titles in the future!
games are great but not working with the latest mac update please look into this
