THE TEN­TA­CLE STRIKES BACK

Day of the Ten­ta­cle Re­mas­tered to be Re­leased in “Early 2016”

GAX (Malaysia) - - NEWSWIRE -

If you were born in the early 80’s and were rel­a­tively in touch with the gam­ing scene back then, chances are you prob­a­bly would’ve heard of – and maybe even played – a point-and-click ad­ven­ture game called Day of the Ten­ta­cle, which was launched in 1993. Fast for­ward 22 years later, and we’ve re­ceived word that the clas­sic Lu­casArts game is be­ing sub­jected to the ev­er­pop­u­lar re­mas­ter­ing treat­ment, cour­tesy of de­vel­oper Dou­ble Fine Pro­duc­tions, who re­cently worked on restor­ing an­other iconic Lu­casArts ti­tle, Grim Fan­dango.

Day of the Ten­ta­cle re­volves around three so­cially-in­ept teenagers – Bernard Bernoulli, Hoagie, and Lav­erne – and their quest to stop the game’s an­tag­o­nist – the Pur­ple Ten­ta­cle – from tak­ing over the world. If you have no idea how the Pur­ple Ten­ta­cle came to be, you’ll be glad to know that Day of the Ten­ta­cle Re­mas­tered will be shipped to­gether with its pre­quel,

Ma­niac Man­sion.

Apart from the oblig­a­tory im­proved graph­ics, Day of the Ten­ta­cle Re­mas­tered will also fea­ture a re­mas­tered sound­track and sound ef­fects, as well as an au­dio com­men­tary track by the game’s orig­i­nal cre­ators: Tim Schafer, Dave Grossman, Larry Ah­ern, Peter Chan, Peter McCon­nell, and Clint Ba­jakian.

If you’re keen on find­ing out why Day of the Ten­ta­cle is of­ten con­sid­ered a cult clas­sic, you can do so when Day of the Ten­ta­cle

Re­mas­tered be­comes avail­able on the PC, Mac, PS4, and Vita in “early 2016”. While no spe­cific re­lease date has been men­tioned thus far, we do at least know that the PlayS­ta­tion ver­sions of the game will sup­port the Cross-Buy fea­ture.

Day of the Ten­ta­cle Re­mas­tered will be shipped to­gether with its pre­quel, Ma­niac Man­sion.
