Maybe I will give it a try too. There are not too many games like these anyway so we don't have much of a choice.

Day of the Tentacle should be included on every "greatest games ever"-list compiled. The utter joy of playing that game is remarkable. Praise SCUMM for letting us play DotT and all other titles even today.

You know what they say: "To save the world, you have to push a few old ladies down the stairs."

Well, what possible harm could one insane, mutant tentacle do?

I'm actually playing through DoTT right now! Somehow I've forgotten the solutions for most puzzles, which makes the game even more enjoyable.
After about 5 hours of playing I've managed to save Dr. Fred from the IRS guys.

Use Scalpel with poster of Human, Laverne: "Not as much fun as the real thing! Ehehehe..."

EDIT: Just finished it. Still an awesome game!

Brilliant! (Fellow Swede?)

I used to always forget how to
[Show spoiler]deal with the cat (i.e. turning it into a skunk) in the future.


Rarely has a game been so perfect in terms of joy of playing, humor and great music as DotT!

This is pretty geeky of me, but since I have a habit of loading up portable hard drives with videos to watch on my PS3, I've converted and downloaded many of the classic Lucasarts games being played through by competent gamers (mostly found on YouTube) so that I'll always have easy access to my favorite moments of my favorite childhood games...

For details' sake, I have videos for:

The Dig, Sam and Max Hit the Road, Full Throttle, Day of the Tentacle, Secret of MI, MI 2: LeChuck's Revenge, Curse of MI, Grim Fandango, and Loom.


It's only about 25% as much fun as actually playing them, but since so much of the games' charm lies in their dialogue and cutscenes, I figured it'd be neat to have! Plus, I can zip back-and-forth and watch at my leisure.

...Yeah, I'm a geek.
