    dkirschner's Day of the Tentacle Remastered (PC)

    [April 2, 2017 09:51:29 AM]
    Hehe, silly old adventure game. I played it with a walkthrough, which I've learned is the only way I really enjoy tough point-and-clicks. This one in particular, there's no way I would have gotten very far without help. It involves time travel, and saving the world from sentient tentacles. It also features the Founding Fathers, heavy metal, a talking horse, a mummy, mad scientists, and more. You switch between three main characters who get stuck in various time periods, and many of the puzzles involve sending things back and forth in time. So like, at one point someone needs vinegar, so you put wine in a time capsule, and open it with a character in the future. Voila. There are a lot of silly moments; it's very much like an old slapstick cartoon. I did laugh out loud a couple times, but I can't remember why. My favorite character was Laverne, who is deadpan and morbid. Bernard, the nerdy science student, was fun, and I liked Hoagie, the heavy metal roadie, too. I suspect that Hoagie was an inspiration for Tim Schafer's Brutal Legend. Anyway, it's cool that this got a remastered version, as it's considered a classic game in the adventure genre. I enjoyed speeding through it with the walkthrough, and have more old gaming references in my head.
