Five years after Maniac Mansion, a creature called Purple Tentacle drinks some...ah...poison? And receives two tiny arms. So, naturally, he can now take over the world (OF COURSE!). His friend Green Tentacle writes a letter to his good friend Bernard Bernoulli, who we already know from Maniac Mansion. So Bernard and his two roommates Hoagie and Laverne (who seems to be the long lost sister of Luna Lovegood) have to travel back in time to stop Purple Tentacle.
And if you thought that Doctor Who had a fancy way to travel in time, than take a look at the time machine from DOTT: Three portable toilets connected to a diamond...
Of course something goes wrong during the time-travel-process and from now on Hoagie is stuck in the past, Laverne in the future and Bernard in the present. To repair the time machine you need to find, connect and use items. You can also send them through time by using the toilets.
DOTT is one of my favorite games of all time. I love the graphics, the humor and the characters. You will have a great time playing it, especially when you already liked Maniac Mansion or the early Sam & Max games.
There is so much stuff you could like about DOTT. I especially love the fact that you can actually change stuff in time for example by replacing or fixing objects.
Day of the Tentacle has everything you want: Great characters, amazing graphics, a lot of humor, interesting puzzles, time travel and a villain that wants to take over the world
