Day of the Tentacle Archive


Video Game Ad of the Day: LucasArts Archives Volume 1

Lucasarts Archives Vol 1
LucasArts Archives Volume 1 is a budget package which features three of the company’s best adventure games on CD-ROM: Day of the Tentacle, Sam & Max Hit the Road and Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, which really made it one of the best deals of all time. As a bit of a sweetener, the company threw in a 3 level demo of Rebel Assault, and a CD filled with demos of various other LucasArts games.


LucasArts was working on a Day of the Tentacle HD remake

Hot on the heels of the Monkey Island HD remakes, LucasArts Singapore started work on a similarly styled remake of the developer’s popular adventure game Day of the Tentacle.

Although never officially greenlit, the project was pretty far along – some say as much as 80% complete. However, LucasArts executives didn’t get behind the project, with one source saying to Kotaku that “he company’s higher-ups had no interest in continuing to make what they called “legacy” titles like this one.”

Another for the long list of LucasArts failures.

Video Game Ad of the Day: Day of the Tentacle

Day of the Tentacle is one of the finest games from the golden age of adventure games, and a painful reminder of how LucasArts was once a developer and publisher that did more than just coast off the Star Wars license.
