    jp's Day of the Tentacle Remastered (PS4)

    [November 4, 2017 11:59:35 AM]
    I could have sworn I wrote about this one a while back...but I guess not? Sigh.

    I've finished it, played a fair amount and even got a few of the trophies. I never played the original, but this remastered is well worth it - I think you need a fair amount of patience with the game though. It's an adventure game, which basically means interaction and inventory puzzles in which you need to figure out what to use with what (and when).

    Since the game takes place over three different time periods, with three different characters there is a fair amount of challenge in figuring out what to do when you get stuck. It's not structured such that you complete one character before moving on to the next and such. The premise is such that part of the fun is taking advantage of the time travelling mechanic - you can make a change in the past such that a character in the present (or future) can now do something they couldn't before. Thus, will all the different strands intertwining and existing in parallel, there were definitely times when I had to consult a guide because I hadn't caught on to the fact that I had to do something innocuous-seeming with someone in one time period to affect the future. It can be really frustrating!

    I was also surprised by how big/long the game was - I was expecting something shorter (just cause it's older?).
