Have any of you seen this site (http://www.dott2.de) yet? It is day of the tentacle 2 rumored to come out. There isnt a realese date but I am hoping that they will keep working on this thing. There is a video on youtube or on there website showing real gameplay. I personaly think it would be best if Teltale Games take over the Maniac Mansion series just like they did with sam and Max or Monkey Island. I like teltale games but I think it would be best if Lucasarts continued all of these titles. But the bigest market with lucasarts is star wars so it would make sence if they gave the uncontinued adventure games to teltale. Give me you opinions on this!

EDIT: Sorry I forgot to add that this is a fan made game and is not assosiated with Lucasarts in anyway.

Maniac Mansion 3!??!?!

I wouldn't hold my breath, but if Secret of Monkey Island SE and Tales of MI do well, we might see it.

I'm pretty sure that's just a fan-game or fan adaptation...

Ya but this is a fanmade so theres no telling. I am pretty shure they will go through with it. there are many fanmade maniac mansions. Theres a website with all maniac mansion and day of the tentacle fanmades. I will try to find it and give you the link.

Tim Shafer will probably ultimately be the one who decides to continue a sequel game of Day of the Tentacle. I've always clamored for the story of Day of the Tentacle 2: Purple Tentacle's Revenge, just to follow the title similarities of the Secret of Monkey Island series.
The next generation adventure type game of this sort will probably be 3D or third person.
2D point and click interface is probably ancient history though I wouldn't mind seeing or playing either way.

Well This is a fan made and I made another thread on a episodic DOTT if you want to check it out. DOTT's graphics have always been like your watching a 2d cartoon. I have never (and probably everyone else) thought that the graphics could be better (Now days they could but when it was still pretty new) or that it should be in 3d. But The graphics are the same old 2d graphics (In the fan made) but of course less pixely. I was kinda doubting that if they continue the series (Or if Telltale does take it off lucasarts hands they will continue it episodic) they would be in 3d. But I was also doubting Sam and Max in 3d. But I think that Sam and Max are easier characters to make the transition from 2d to 3d and as for DOTT The characters would be kinda hard to put in 3d especialy since they are more cartoonish characters.

To be a nerd for a second, wouldn't it be Days of the Tentacle then?
Nerd off, Geek on.
I'm not really hyped about it, mainly due to the fact that TOR will reign awesome for the next few years so it's really the only thing getting my attention.

UPDATE

The Website has been updated it is officialy active. They have finished the SFX for the team Demo. I am getting exited. But sice they are short on time and resorces the first game will be released in german then they will release it in englishs so thats kinda disapointing.

hi there!

as i see, a ROTT (return of the tentacle) thread already exists.
at first i am glad to see, that our project seems to be interesting out there ... so i gets a bit international. ;)

i am one of the graphic artists. i just want to inform you about our quantum jump, the demo version is almost ready 2 go!
a few months ago, i have made a kind of promotion video hoping to get some help.
we are working hard day by day, but our small number of members (especially graphic artists) constricts our fluent and efficient work.

would be nice to hear from you.
if there is anyone of you who wants to take part: we would welcome you!

greetings from good (c)old germany

hey guys,

we have some news for you:
about two weeks ago, we've started the first test runs for a new engine. today it's official: from now on, we'll work with the wintermute engine.
as some of you maybe already know, we were using the visionaire engine.
the visionaire-team did a great job and we'll miss their support in any case.
visionaire is an easy to use programming software, which also allows greenhorns to develop their own games.

especially since the last few months, results get better and better.
it's our goal to bring you the best adventure gaming experience. just to make that sure, we immediately count on the wintermute engine.

enclosed you can see a brand new ingame screenshot of bernards journey through ... whatever. you'll find out in the full version. ;)

long time no see.
this time, we've got a making-of video for you. it's a bit fast, but i think it would be more exhausting to watch somebody drawing for two or three hours.
