Day Of The Tentacle returns to the PC on March 22

We’ve known for some time that Double Fine Productions would be publishing Day of the Tentacle Remastered, a modernized version of the classic adventure game, but we didn’t know exactly when it would be released. Now, thanks to a pre-order announcement from GOG, we at least know when the PC version of the game is coming.

At least for GOG buyers, the game will be available starting March 22. Between now and then the company is offering a 10-percent discount to those who pre-order the game, bringing the price down to $13.50 from the standard $15 charge. This GOG-exclusive pre-order also includes bonus wallpapers, for those who are interested in that sort of thing.

Similarly to the re-released versions of the first two Monkey Island games released a few years ago, Day of the Tentacle Remastered features updated art, but this is entirely optional. At any point in the game, players can switch between the original graphics and the new, higher-resolution graphics. Like the remastered version of Grim Fandango released last year, developer commentary is also included. Concept art for the game is also included via an in-game browser.

The original Day of the Tentacle was released in 1993 as a follow-up to Maniac Mansion, created by Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick. Current Double Fine head Tim Schafer co-developed the game with Dave Grossman, while Gilbert and Winnick helped with early planning and writing.

Day of the Tentacle Remastered will also be available for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. The game has been confirmed for a March release on both platforms, but at the time of this writing no concrete release date has been set. Given that March 22 is a Tuesday — a standard release day for games — it seems more than possible that the game will be released for all platforms at the same time.
