The lights are on
Classic adventure game creator Ron Gilbert may have just recently joined up with Tim Schafer's Double Fine, but that doesn't mean that he's forgotten his roots.
Speaking at GDC, Gilbert said he would "love for them to re-release Maniac Mansion the same way they did the Monkey Island games." Gilbert even suggested that he may want to change parts of the game in a potential remake:
"I've often thought it would be fun to go through the game and fix a lot of the problems I mentioned and get the puzzle structure more like we did in Monkey Island. But then other times I think, 'Do I really want to do that?' Maybe the game really needs to have those flaws. Isn't that a little bit like George Lucas going back and fixing all those problems with Star Wars? Maybe the game really needs to be what it is back then."
As long as Gilbert's talking about old adventure games that need to be more readily available to a modern gaming audience, I can't be the only one who's desperate for an updated version of Day of the Tentacle?
YES YES YES YES AND YES!!!!
I'd be all over this. Loved the Monkey Island remakes.
This is the best idea I've heard for a remake EVER
Born4This has been talking about this game alot lately...
don't forget full throttle
That'd be cool.
Now thats what I'm talking about. A blast from my childhood
Make this happen!
Haha this looks funny, but i never heard of it
YES, Phil, YES. Day of the Tentacle is one of my favorite games EVER. A Maniac Mansion game would be great and all, but I would KILL for a DotT update.
A blast from the past. I love it!
It would be cool. I've never finished this game, there were no online walkthroughs at the time. *** I'm old :)
That was my favorite C-64 game. It was the best.
Loved this game when i was a kid, but couldnt seem to get very far in it. Would definitely give it another shot with a re-release.
This would be awesome!!! Also, Full Throttle and Zack McKracken...
can not believe it's taken this long for this to even be talked about. Maniac Mansion is a classic and deserves a re-release. Leave the flaws in, it's part of the charm and one of the reasons I love the game as much as I do, those "flaws" are endearing and are part of the love I have for this classic. Be LucasArts and not Lucas in this respect. The hamster should never try to stick you in the microwave first. Remember that, it's important.
How about lucas art's stop making crappy games and republishes some of schafer's classics?
