Ok. So I was browsing LucasForums and it hit me. A horrible, shocking blow to the heart.

There is not a Day of the Tentacle forum!

With further research, I noticed that there are HARDLY ANY Day of the Tentacle fan sites.

What is wrong with the world? Does this pain anyone else as much as it does me????

There used to be great DOTT fan sites, such as The Mansion and DOTTcom, but they are gone. There's still the Maniac Mansion Fan Site, though.

Well, there's only two games, and (sadly) it seems half the world knows not of DOTT...
...though it was metioned in PCgamer as one of the top ten funniest games...W00t!...

Have strength, child.

Sigh...i miss The Mansion...

Still can't believe there was a tv show...
:eek:

And besides the title and the character name Dr. Fred Edison, there is abosultely NO resemblance to the game.

No, there was a meteor in it too, but it was completely different from the one in the game.

I've always felt that the series was more related to SCTV (Second City Television) than it was to the game, but that's just me.

I have a magazine totally devoted to interviews with the cast and crew of the Maniac Mansion TV series. I'll scan it and upload it next time I go home - around christmas time.

*gives LucasTones a great big hug!*

Hmm...As long as we're talkin' about DOTT...

...does anyone else find it annoying that there's only speech in the begining? I was sitting thru the ending, half hoping for voices, and there were NONE.
*annoyed*
Why? did they only pay the actors halfway? did the actors quit in the middle of production?
and don't tell me it has to do with file size, because sound files are quite small.:mad:

PS Lucas...do you just have EVERYTHING relating to ANY LucasArts game?;)

EDIT: PPS...Shiver, your sig scares and amuses me...

orca... i think it has to do with the file size.. as i know it there is only a floppy version of dott. but besides the speech it has GRREEAAAT sfx.. !!!!

The CD version has voice acting throughout.

Errr, guys?? DOTT has COMPLETE voice acting all the way through!

You need to get the CD version!

I do wish the floppy version had voices... but when you are trying to figure something out and they say the same thing about forty times in a row, its kind of nice that it is silent. (And yes, I had them say the same thing about 40 times in a row when i was trying to get rid of Edna...doing one of the few simplest actions just didn't occur to me...)

Okay, regarding the Maniac Mansion magazine I told you about: I don't have the scans yet, still a few weeks for those, but I did remember that there is a picture of it on my collection site. See it here. (http://www.geocities.com/adventuregamescollection/magazine.htm)

I just checked out the boxed game section and the only fully boxed Adventure game out of those that I have is Flight of the Amazon Queen
(amazongly, it was my first ever adventure game }:¬)

Yeah, its a great little game - one of the minority of ones in my collection (along with Simon the Sorcerer, Discworld, Sam and Max Hit the Road and The Dig) that I had salvaged from my dads, my uncles and my own set of old PC games - I got almost all the others on Ebay. My dad had all the LucasArts games boxed at one point (never all at the same time) but he is the kind who swaps a game once he's played it in order to save money. He got through loads of games, and most were gone as soon as they were completed. :/

Oh, I know that scene all to well. Soooo much time spent in that room...

And others, for that matter.

Use fork with Ozo the clown
Use red paint with Ozo the clown
Use wet, soggy noodles with Ozo the clown
Use wad of gum with Ozo the clown

Its enough to make one go crazy and try stabbing Ozo with a scalpel. The thing I didn't think would work.

Lucas tones, do you have an approximation on when you'll have those MM scans?

elTee

Yeah, should be around 12 Jan. Sorry for the long wait, its just hard to get home and scan them and the whole thing at the moment.
