Anyone remember the Lucasarts classic Maniac Mansion? I do. I played the hell out of it as a kid on the NES, and it was my introduction into the SCUMM point and click adventure games. However, while we did have an NES, we didn’t get a PC in my house until I was a teenager. So I really missed out on the huge load of these games available to people who had the money to pony up for these classic adventures.
It wasn’t until I got much older that I found out that Maniac Mansion had what was basically a sequel, called Day of the Tentacle, featuring much better graphics, and a somehow crazier logic-structure to it. Well it seems Double Fine’s Tim Schafer hasn’t forgotten about his old creation. The first video of him sitting down to play the Lucasarts classic is now up on YouTube. If you’re a fan of Tim Schafer, and/or his old adventure games, it is something you should definitely watch.
