The HD version of Tim Schafer’s classic time-traveling adventure game, Day of the Tentacle, hits PC in exactly two weeks, on March 22.


The announcement appeared on GOG, which is hosting an exclusive pre-order campaign for the remaster. They included a features summary:

Day of the Tentacle Remastered is all the adventure you may remember with an optional layer of sweet improvements on top. You can mix and match between the unmistakably 1990s pixely art and a fresh high-res coat of paint, remastered audio, and an all new interface. There are extra goodies in the Remastered release as well, including in-game developer commentary and a fully playable version of the original Maniac Mansion.

Along with a video message from Tim Schafer:

Unfortunately, the announcement didn’t mention a release date for the PS4 and Vita versions of the game. We’ll update this post if or when it pops up.

Update - 06:08am: In an email, GOG brand director Tomasz Nalewajk has confirmed to Kotaku that the Vita and PS4 versions are also coming out on the 22nd. Here’s the press release excerpt he included:

Double Fine Productions, in collaboration with Lucasfilm, is pleased to announce that Day of the Tentacle Remastered is available to pre order today for PlayStation®4, PlayStation®Vita, and PC and will be released on March 22nd.
The game will be listed on PlayStation®Network as a Cross-Buy title for $14.99 with a 10% pre-order discount and sports a new PlayStation®4 theme as a pre-order bonus.

Cannot wait! One of the gems from my childhood. We have remasters of Monkey Island 1 and 2, Grim Fandango, now DOTT, and Full Throttle next!

Now if they could do Sam n Max Hit The Road, Fate Of Atlantis and Loom, that would be great. Kay? Thanks.
