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.

Editors' Notes

Three reasons you must play—or replay—LucasArts’ classic adventure: (1) The time-jumping story and quirky characters are as entertaining as ever. (2) So many clever puzzles and funny gags. (3) With beautifully updated graphics and sound, a slick new control scheme and developer commentary, this remaster was clearly a labour of love.

Wonderful nostalgic puzzle fun

I enjoyed this game so much! I remember playing the original but I never completed it. It was so satisfying to finally play it all the way through. The puzzles and comedy still work really well. The graphics and interface have been updated for iPad in a way that really works. Highly recommended game

A classic at your fingertips!!

Always been a huge fan of point and click games, and DOTT is one of the best. I’ve played it multiple times over the years (decades 😱) and I’m still not bored of its quirkiness and originality. There is nothing else out there quite like it!!

Use fork on spaghetti hair 🤣🤣
