Day of the Tentacle Remastered

Hello and welcome to the Day of the Tentacle Remastered complete achievement walkthrough!

Background

Day of the Tentacle Remastered 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 version was developed by Double Fine Production, whose founder, Tim Schafer, was also the co-lead game design on the original game, along with Dave Grossman. Not only was this the first game Schafer & Grossman co-led game design on, but these gentlemen also introduced something into this game that, at the time, had never been done before. Nowadays many, many games, including Call of Duty: Black Ops and Goat Simulator 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.

Gameplay

Day of the Tentacle Remastered 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 is clearly insane, and Hoagie, the laid-back roadie. Yup, the best playable characters EVER!!!

Your goal is to assist these three as they travel in time get stuck in different time periods, and 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 cn_LB and cn_RB buttons.

Visually, you are actually given two options while playing the game; original rendered mode and remastered. (You can switch between the two at any point using the cn_back button.) The original mode gives you the 9-command arrays such as, "Pick Up", "Open", and "Use", on screen, where remastered shows you all potential options available after pressing cn_X. Assuming everyone prefers the 2020 graphics available, I will be writing this walkthrough using the remastered visuals.

Walkthrough

This walkthrough is written to guide you through all 58 achievements in one playthrough, and is, hopefully, structured to unlock all achievements in the most logical order.

There are 28 main storyline achievements that will naturally unlock while playing, and the game's storyline is very straight forward and linear. However, while the storyline progresses on a very linear path, there can be variety in the order achievements unlock depending on which character you're playing, when you're playing them, or which items your interacting with and when. Again, this walkthrough is attempting to use the quickest path to completion.

There are 27 missable achievements (good thing you're following a walkthrough, right???). If you weren't using a walkthrough, I believe a good majority of the missable achievements would be things you would either attempt while playing, or might accidentally stumble into. I will still attempt to guide you, though, unspoiled, so you can solve all the riddles/puzzles/craziness that is Day of the Tentacle Remastered.

There are 2 achievements that can only be earned by playing Maniac Mansion, the prequel game which is built into this game. Maniac Mansion is accessible at almost anytime during the storyline. While this walkthrough suggests playing Maniac Mansion at your first opportunity, there will be multiple opportunities to earn without backtracking. There will be a warning before you hit the "point-of-no-return" requiring you to start a new game (or reload a save) in order to play this game-within-a-game. For this just looking at earning these achievements, Maniac Mansion has been given its own page in this walkthrough.

There is also 1 buggy achievement:

OCD

OCD
5 guidesOffline Game ModeSingle PlayerBuggy -

This achievement doesn't unlock when it should, but unlocks by reloading the game after you've completed all other achievements.

Without farther ado, I leave you with a quote that sums up this fantastic game:

Dr. Fred: 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!

TIPS

As mentioned on the prior page, this game is a pretty straight forward Point & Click game. If you're familiar with classic Lucas Arts games you know you basically need to pick up every item possible, and attempt to use all items together or with other interactable objects/characters in order to progress the storyline. If at any time you can't find an item or something to interact with, use the Object Highlight option cn_up and/or the Snap Cursor to Hotspot option cn_RS. This will highlight or snap you to all interactable items on screen.

There are a couple of instances in this game where you will need to properly time interacting with another item/character/object. I will highlight these timing-required interactions when necessary.

I will be writing this walkthrough using the remastered rendering (game can be played in both the original or remastered rendering), with verb setting options at "Auto" (I believe this is the default). The remastered mode gives you a choice of commands when pressing cn_X on an item/object/character, where original mode requires you to select the proper command. Since multiple command options are possible, I'll be using the following system to specify what needs to happen.

Commands needed will be written in Bold (i.e. "Use", "Talk to", "Open"), and items/objects you interact with are written in Italics (i.e. "chattering teeth", "soggy hamster", "Weird Ed"). "Walk to" is always defaulted when using cn_A, and, since you'll be walking throughout the mansion the majority of the time, you don't need to select "Walk to" before selecting location. Just push cn_A.

There are 2 ways to give items to another character; "Fast Flush" and placing item in Chron-O-John. Fast Flush is done by opening your inventory cn_Y (or pressing the > symbol at bottom left of screen), selecting item, and then selecting character you wish to give item to. Fast Flush is the most efficient way to share items with another character.

MISSABLE AND BUGGY ACHIEVEMENTS

While there are 28 missable achievements in this game and 1 buggy achievement, I want to highlight a few missable achievements for you to be aware of.

Mental Patience

Play the whole game without skipping a cutscene

Mental Patience
2 guidesOffline Game ModeSingle PlayerMissable

This achievement can be missed if you skip any cutscene while playing the game. Skipping a cutscene happens ONLY when holding down cn_B. You can use cn_A to skip to next dialog as that does NOT negate this achievement.

You must use the Fast Flush option to earn this achievement as the other way to flush items, placing item in Chron-O-John and picking item up with other character, does not work. As stated above, Fast Flush is done by opening your inventory cn_Y (or pressing > symbol at bottom left of screen), selecting item, and then selecting character you wish to give item to.

Master Plumber

Flush 50 objects through time

These next two achievements are obtained by playing a separate game-within-a-game, Maniac Mansion. While this game is accessible at almost anytime during the main storyline you can progress too far and miss these. This walkthrough suggests playing this at your first available opportunity, but will also remind you prior to passing the point of no return. Given that this is a separate game and can be accessed through majority of the game, we've included a complete walkthrough of these achievements on their own page.

This achievement is buggy as it does not unlock right after all other achievements are earned. Instead, after earning all other achievements, you need to force-close the game (cn_guide scroll down to and select "Quit"), then reload the game, selecting any of your save games, and the achievement should unlock a few moments after loading.

SAVE GAME

There are a couple of "point-of-no-return" moments in the game. What I mean by this is that either you will use an item in your inventory that you needed to interact with prior to using item, causing you to miss an achievement, or you'll progress the storyline too far forward, which would also cause you to miss an achievement. You are allowed 10 in-game save slots (use the Open Menu button cn_start to access the save or load options) and I will note suggested save spots, just in case you accidentally skipped an achievement.

Reminders

Do Not Skip Cutscenes - Missable Achievement

Always use the "Fast Flush" option (open inventory, select item, then select character) to gain progress towards the 50 flush cumulative achievement.

Use the Object Highlighter cn_up to find interactable items or objects.

Commands are written in Bold and items/objects you interact with are in Italics.

Walkthrough

Everything you need to know about the storyline of the game can be summed up in this one quote:

Dr. Fred: Step one. Find plans. Step two. Save world. Step three. Get out of my house! Let's get cracking.

We're going to start off by completing step one while collecting as many items we need to interact with along the way.

Find Plans

After the opening cutscene you'll be in control of Bernard, the loveable nerd, in the Lobby of the Mansion.

Let's get the most annoying achievement out of the way.

Before progressing the storyline, we're going to get another annoying achievement out of the way. Do NOTHING with Hoagie for about 5 minutes, as idling with Hoagie causes him to pull out a sandwich and eat it.

In total we'll need to Fast Flush 50 items and we should already have quite a few out of the 50 done, but let's go ahead and grind out the remaining ones now. You can send the same item back and forth between characters, but I found it easiest/fastest to send 10+ items to one person, then switch characters and send those same 10+ items to the next character. Doesn't really matter which items you flush for the 50, but note that not all items are flushable (i.e. Coffee, Crowbar, Videotape). Once you have Fast Flushed 50 items, this achievement should unlock:

We've now done everything we can with Laverne, but before switching to Hoagie let's share some items.

Give Chattering Teeth to Hoagie.

Give Vinegar to Hoagie.

Switch to Hoagie.

Hoagie

Before progressing any farther, check that you have acquired the Chattering Teeth with Mummy achievement. We will be using the item, thus passing the point-of-no-return, for that achievement.

This is also another great place to create a new save of your game. If you've got all the above mentioned achievements you can override your save location, but, in my opinion, it's always best to create a new save, just in case.

We last left our roadie in the Main Hall with a few of the founding fathers. Head over to the right towards George Washington.

After a few cutscenes you'll find yourself ready for step two: Save the World.

You'll find yourself in control of your character (yeah. . . not exactly sure what to call this creature except "Thing") in the Honeymoon Suite.

Exit Room and head into the Second Floor Hallway.

Open Dwayne's Room (labeled "R") and now you become Mini-Thing.

As Mini-Thing, enter Dwayne's Room.

Walk to Mouse Hole (this must be done before you become Big-Thing).

Now you're in Green Tentacle's Room. Wait until you become Big-Thing.

Pick Up Bowling Ball.

Open Door. (Where'd he go!?)

This is the last opportunity you have to play Maniac Mansion without reloading a save.

Head downstairs through the Grandfather Clock and into the Basement.

Use Bowling Ball with Purple Tentacles.

Talk to Purple Tentacle, selecting the following dialog options:

Thing: Just what is it that you have against humans, anyways?

Thing: Sounds like that's all Dr. Fred's fault, really.

Thing: You're pretty handy with that ray gun.

Thing: Why don't you zap Dr. Fred if you hate him so much?

This will take you to the final cutscene which, as long as you heeded the warning throughout this walkthrough, you should gain two achievements.

The final achievement is buggy, as it SHOULD unlock after the previous achievement unlocks, but it doesn't. Instead go ahead and exit the game, doing a full "Quit" of the game (cn_guide, scroll down and select "Quit"). Now load back into the game, selecting any of your save games and the final achievement should unlock.

Congratulations!!! You've now completed this classic Point & Click adventure game. I'll leave you with these very wise words of Purple Tentacle:

Purple Tentacle: I feel like I could. . . like I could. . . like I could. . . TAKE ON THE WORLD!!

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.

Manic Mansion

If at any time you are lost as to what item is where, use the What Is command and scroll around the screen to find the proper item.

Commands are written in Bold and items/objects you interact with are in Italics.

Select "Start Game".

Select "Dave", "Syd", and "Razor" as your playable characters.
