In a Double Fine double-bill, look, it’s the first trailer for Day of the Tentacle Remastered [official site]! Yes, yes, the main feature of Double Fine’s weekend announcements was Full Throttle Remastered, but that’s not due until 2017. DotT Remastered, however, will be coming in March 2016, sez this trailer. Here, check out how the redrawn art looks in motion:
It’s… sure, okay? Ah, I don’t know. I’m delighted that Day of the Tentacle will be readily available again thanks to this remaster, but I’m not sold on the new art. The original pixel art had more personality, and I’m no pixel art nostalgiahead – you can ask Pip. Ah, but it’s not a massive deal, as it’ll have the option to use the older art if you want. I suppose you can get worked up over it if you want, though.
“The only way I’d forgive them is if the Maniac Mansion on Ed’s computer was remastered to look like 1993 DOTT,” John screamed in the RPS treehouse this morning, pounding on the rickety walls (fence panels pilfered after the Great Storm of ’87), filling his fists with splinters and sending the assembled crows scattering into the skies. Yes, the Maniac Mansion easter egg is still in.
Also, I guess I’ll casually mention it here because I don’t know if it’ll ever come to PC: Double Fine are also making a Psychonauts for PlayStation VR. On top of currently crowdfunding Psychonauts 2. What a busy bunch they must be!
