Double Fine Productions announced it will release three classic LucasArts point-and-click adventure games, Day of the Tentacle RemasteredFull Throttle Remastered, and Grim Fandango Remastered, for the Xbox One, PC via the Microsoft Store, and Xbox Game Pass for Console, PC, and Android on October 29. 

Here is an overview of the three games:

Day of the Tentacle Remastered

Originally released by LucasArts in 1993 as a sequel to Ron Gilbert’s ground breaking Maniac Mansion, Day of the Tentacle is a mind-bending, time travel, cartoon puzzle adventure game in which three unlikely friends work together to prevent an evil mutated purple tentacle from taking over the world!

Full Throttle Remastered

Originally released by LucasArts in 1995, Full Throttle is a classic graphic adventure game from industry legend Tim Schafer, telling the story of Ben Throttle; butt-kicking leader of biker gang the Polecats, who gets caught up in a tale of Motorcycles, Mayhem, and Murder.

Grim Fandango Remastered

One of the most acclaimed adventure games of all time is now back, better than ever. Grim Fandango‘s epic story of four years in the after-life of Manny Calavera, travel agent to the dead, has been remastered to look, sound, and control even better than when it won countless awards and was considered one of the best games of the year upon its original launch. Grim Fandango still stands as a classic of the genre, with unforgettable characters and unique combination of film noir and Mexican folklore.

Well, on October 29th I will be playing Day of the Tentacle. I remember playing it in my freshman year in college and how much of a pain in the ****ing ass it was to get a SCUMM emulator to run on my laptop XD

DOTT is among the best games I ever played. Didn't even play the others, I should give them a try at some point. Especial Grim Fandango interests me.

Grim Fandango is the one to play, and skip the others.

You do that. And then let the others play what they want. DOTT is my favourite of the bunch. So, yeah, yours is a crappy advice as far as I'm concerned.
