4. Day of the Tentacle Remastered Maniac Mansion

As mentioned in the Hints & Tips page, there are 2 missable achievements that require you to play the prequel game, Maniac Mansion. Maniac Mansion is another Point & Click Adventure game where you have the choice of 3 out of 7 playable characters. In order to obtain both achievements you MUST select specific characters and it is recommended to use the "save game" feature as there is a bit of timing required to successfully gain these achievements.

The storyline for this game has Dave, and your choice of 2 out of 6 other playable characters, as they attempt to enter the Edison's Mansion to rescue Sandy Pantz, Dave's girlfriend, from the mad scientist, Dr. Fred, who has been brainwashed by a sentient meteor into preforming experiments on human brains. Besides Dr. Fred, other characters living in the Edison Mansion include Nurse Edna, Dr. Fred's wife, Weird Ed, their son, green tentacle and purple tentacle. There are actually a total of 5 different possible endings for this game, but as each playable character has a different set of skills, specific combinations of characters are needed in order to reach the different endings. It is also worth noting that if all your characters get captured or are killed, it's game over.

Now the GOOD NEWS!!! We're not required to complete a full playthrough nor reach a specific ending to earn our achievements. So while the storyline is fun and has replayability, in order to see each of the five endings this walkthrough will ONLY cover the information needed to earn the achievements.

Playing through Maniac Mansion can be done at ALMOST any time during the storyline of Day of the Tentacle Remastered, and, in the main storyline portion of this walkthrough, I have suggested playing this the first time Bernard visits Weird Ed's room. However, just in case you're playing this game-within-a-game at another point during the main storyline, below is exactly what you need to know in order to find and access Maniac Mansion.

As Bernard, in present day, visit Weird Ed's room and Use Computer. Weird Ed's room is located on the third floor of the mansion, entering the doorway on the right.
