Day of the Tentacle Remastered Achievements
was originally developed and published by LucasArts
in 1993, and is the sequel to their game Maniac Mansion
(1987) which was originally released for the Commodore 64 and the Apple II....those are super old gaming systems/computers for all you young bucks out there.Day of the Tentacle Remastered Achievements
version was developed by Double Fine Production
, whose founder, Tim Schafer
, was also the co-lead game developer on the original game, along with Dave Grossman
. Not only was this the first game that Schafer & Grossman co-led game development these gentlemen introduced something into this game that, at the time, had never been done but many, many games, including games like Call of Duty: Black Ops Achievements
and Goat Simulator Achievements
, to name a few, have since mirrored. They included the entire prequel game, Maniac Mansion
, playable on a computer designed to looked like a Commodore 64, into this game.GameplayDay of the Tentacle Remastered Achievements
is a classic, point & click, adventure game. You play as Bernard
, the socially inept, yet loveable, geeky nerd, and his housemates, Laverne
, the medical student who clearly is insane, and Hoagie
, the laid-back roadie...yup, best playable characters EVER!!!
Your goal is to assist these three as they
travel in time
get stuck in different time periods, and they attempt to save the world from the evil, purple tentacle, who just recently acquired arms (bum...bum...bum). You are actually able to toggle between characters during gameplay using the
Visually, you have two options; original render mode and remastered...and you can toggle between these two options at any point using the
button. Original render version gives you the nine-command arrays such as, 'Pick Up", 'Open', and "Use", on-screen, where remastered shows you all potential options available after pressing
There are a total of 58 achievements in the game; Fifty-One (51) secret achievements, one (1) completing all achievements, two (2) require you to play the prequel game, Maniac Mansion, five (5) cumulative, twenty-eight (28) main storyline, and twenty-seven (27) missable.
I believe a good majority of the missable/secret achievements would be things you would either attempt while playing, or might accidentally stumble into. However, I will still recommend a good walkthrough for you achievement whores out there, so you're not "stressing/worrying" about any of these missable achievements while playing. Conclusion
While I would place this game on my list of "50 Games that Helped Shape the Current Gaming Industry", I hope you can just sit back, relax, and enjoy this humorous game that, imho, has withstood the test of time with this remastered version.
Without farther ado, I leave you with a quote from the game...
What have you done this time, you meddling milquetoast? Now Purple Tentacle is free to use his evil mutant powers to take over the world, and ENSLAVE ALL HUMANITY!
