I decided to do some of the best LucasArts games, and this one definitely is just that. Day of the Tentacle, also known as Maniac Mansion II: Day of the Tentacle, is a 1993 graphic adventure game developed and published by LucasArts. It is the sequel to the 1987 game Maniac Mansion. Dave Grossman and Tim Schafer co-led the game's development, their first time in such a role. The game's plot follows Bernard Bernoulli and his friends Hoagie and Laverne as they attempt to stop the evil Purple Tentacle—a sentient, disembodied tentacle—from taking over the world. The player takes control of the three and solves puzzles while using time travel to explore different periods of history. Day of the Tentacle has featured regularly in lists of "top" games. Adventure Gamers included the game as the top entry on its 20 Greatest Adventure Games of All Time List in 2004 and it has appeared on several IGN lists. There were two versions of the game released. The CD version has full voice acting and the floppy disk version has voice only during cutscenes and a few key gameplay moments. This, of course, is the CD version.
