Double Fine Remastering Day of The Tentacle, Grim Fandango Release Date Set

With all the news coming out of the recent Playstation Experience in Vegas this weekend, some announcements were lost in the shuffle.

One of those overlooked tidbits of info was the remastering of two of the most beloved adventure games of all time, Day of the Tentacle and Grim Fandango.

While we’ve known about Grim Fandango being remade, it was confirmed for a January 26th release next year across PS4 and Vita, and also for the PC and OSX, though the Playstation branded trailer naturally doesn’t say that.

As for Day of the Tentacle, no date was given and very little info beyond it being worked on was released to the public.

    I want to be excited about this. I want the games, but after the crap
    I’ve put up with from double fine over the past few games, I don’t want
    to give them my money.

    Never played either title, probably won’t bother with these either.

    Sorry Tim, not playing your shit. When you treat your customers like customers then I’ll consider it.

    I think this article would do better to use the phrase ‘assuming they manage to finish them’.

    They are both great games, Grim fandango probably deserved a remake, it hasnt aged well, Day of the tentacle is different, i dont think it needs anything, its just fine as it is, what are they going to do ? up the resolution ? if they go 3d it will definitely lose charm

    Poor Double Fine, to be honest Massive Chalice looks interesting, but im not touching that early access with a 20 foot pole and i doubt im the only one.

    They must be bleeding money, i doubt investors are knocking their doors with Tim’s reputation turning toxic during the last year either, the best thing they could do is tighten those belts, move out of San Fransisco into the cheapest slum they can find and get something *FINISHED* that blows our minds out in the street asap

    Won’t even think about playing it till DFA is complete.

    After that I will be held back by himself and Chris Remo appearing in that FullMcIntosh video.

    So, Tim wants more money so he can throw another dev party and then fire all the people who worked on this, rinse, lather, repeat?
