Day of the Tentacle Intro

Tim Schafer and Dave Grossman took the first-time designer/director leads in this sequel to Ron Gilbert’s Maniac Mansion. From Wiki : “Day of the Tentacle follows the point-and-click two-dimensional adventure game formula, first established by the original Maniac Mansion. Players direct the controllable characters around the game world by clicking with the computer mouse. To interact with the game world, players choose from a set of nine commands arrayed on the screen (such as “pick up”, “use”, or “talk to”) and then on an object in the world. This was the last SCUMM game to use the original interface of having the bottom of the screen being taken up by a verb selection and inventory”.
