Besides confirming a release date for Grim Fandango Remastered at today’s PlayStation Experience keynote, Tim Schafer also revealed that his indie company Double Fine has another LucasArts classic being prepared for re-release, in the form of Day of the Tentacle: Special Edition. Though a release date has not been finalized, plans to bring the revamped game to PlayStation 4, PS Vita, PC, Mac, and Linux have been confirmed.
Originally released for home computers in 1993, Day of the Tentacle served as a sequel to Maniac Mansion, another early LucasArts game, and chronicled the time-traveling adventures of Bernard, Hoagie, and Laverne, a trio of unlikely heroes out to save the day from a sentient tentacle with his eye on global domination. In a clever mechanic, players could switch between the three characters and their respective time periods to meet colorful characters, collect items, and solve puzzles.
We will continue to keep you updated on Day of the Tentacle: Special Edition as more news is dropped, so stay tuned.
