Day of the Tentacle Review: An excellent romp through time

LucasArts is one of those studios that I really appreciate. Twenty some years ago, they released a string of excellent adventure games that went WAY outside of the bread and butter of Star Wars. Day of the Tentacle was one such game. Set up as the sequel to Maniac Mansion, Day of the Tentacle carries over many (though not all) of its characters, and takes place five years later. I really enjoyed this game when I was in High School, and was thrilled to be able to play it again over the last few weeks, via GeForce Now.


[Updated] Amazon had Double Fine’s The Cave for free. Lazy 8’s Cogs is still available for free though.

Actually scratch that, you’ll want to pick either, or both, of these games up if you have access to Amazon’s AppStore. While the main one we are talking about is Double Fine Production’s The Cave, the challenging puzzle game Cogs from Lazy 8 Studios is also available for free as Amazon’s free game of the day.
