Though “Day of the Tentacle Remastered” will be coming out sometime in 2016, publisher Double Fine has recently unleashed a number of new screenshots that might please fans of the game. As the title implies, this is a remastered version of the point-and-click adventure game that Double Fine co-founder Tim Schafer worked on, back when he was still in Lucas Arts.

At the time, many fans and critics praised the game, mostly for its humour and interesting story. Fans of Schafer consider “Day of the Tentacle” as one of his best games, often lumping it with “Full Throttle” and “Grim Fandango.”

The remastered version of “Day of the Tentacle” was announced a while back, and the screenshots from the official Double Fine website offer a first look at the remastered version of the game. Veteran fans of the classic adventure title will notice that the original sprites of the game have been redrawn to make it look better and more modern.

Interestingly enough, those who want to see the classic sprites of the game can do so with a press of a button. This was a feature seen in the recent “Monkey Island” remasterings and is a feature that old-school fans might appreciate.

PC Gamer also confirmed that the game’s sound design will receive a massive overhaul. The music will supposedly be remastered, along with the original sound effects of the game.

Fans can also expect director’s commentary from some of the game’s original developers, similar to the remastered version of “Grim Fandango.” This is to ensure that fans get the ultimate version of the title and that players get a more intimate look at the cult classic.

No official release date has been revealed yet for “Day of the Tentacle Remastered,” so fans will just have to wait for an official announcement. The game is only solicited for a Windows PC release, but it may receive a console port since the remastered version of “Grim Fandango” received one for the PS4.
