Day Of The Tentacle Remastered Due March 22nd

Day of the Tentacle Remastered [official site], the redrawn (or not) re-release of the classic 1993 LucasArts adventure game, will come out on March 22nd. That’s the latest word from Double Fine Productions, the folks who are revamping it (and whose head honch Tim Schafer co-directed, co-designed, and co-wrote all those years ago). It’s been a good few years since I played DotT, so I’m curious to revisit it.

That remastering, then. Double Fine have whipped up new high-resolution artwork, sprinkled with remastered music and sound effects. But if you want to see it the old way, rest assured that Double Fine say “Players are able to switch back and forth between classic and remastered modes, and mix and match audio, graphics and user interface to their heart’s desire.”

I’m not sure which party I’m in. The new art has less personality to my eyes. I don’t tend to be nostalgic about pixel art either (or art, as it was then called). But hey, the main good thing is that Day of the Tentacle will be readily and legitimately available to folks who fancy it.

It’ll cost £10.99/$14.99 when it arrives on March 22nd, initially for Windows. “Mac and Linux versions of Day of the Tentacle Remastered will arrive fashionably late, but they are still coming…” Double Fine said on Twitter.

Here, have a look at the new art in motion:
