Day of the Tentacle: Remastered for PC, PS4 and etc. is a remake of a classic point-and-click adventure game created by the legendary, and now dissolved, LucasArts studio. The original Day of Tentacle appeared in 1993 as a sequel to Maniac Mansion, another cult game by this developer. The Remastered Edition was created by an acclaimed independent developer Double Fine Productions, founded by Tim Schafer. It is noteworthy that Schafer was one of the script writers and fathers of the original game. The new version offers enhanced graphics and audio, as well as interface adjusted to modern-day standards. The developers took care to make the special edition faithful to the original ideas.

In Day of the Tentacle: Remastered for PC, PS4 and etc. you play as the trio of heroes known from Maniac Mansion, who embark on a wild time travel using a machine created by their friend, Dr Fred. The scientist built it in order to save the world from the threat posed by a purple tentacle that he himself had created. The creature, after having come in contact with a toxic substance, acquired intelligence, a nasty personality, and on top of that nothing would make it more happy than to take control over the entire planet. Since the villainous tentacle's plan appears to be flawless, the only way to stop it is to travel back in time in order to alter the events that brought the monster into existence. Unfortunately, the time machine turns out to be flawed, and the three protagonists get separated and sent to different historical periods.

The story is full of surreal humor and multiple references to popular culture and history. The same is true for the masterfully written dialogues. The game’s wacky tone is emphasized by its unique 2D graphics that bring connotations with the classic Warner Bros. cartoons.
