Trivia / Day of the Tentacle

  • Dawson Casting: Fifty-year-old Richard Sanders does the voice of Bernard, who is at most in his early twenties.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: As popular as the game was and still is, it's never been re-released. LucasArts did still seem to care about it as they replaced the Sam & Max cameos in their Monkey Island remakes with Purple Tentacle cameos (due to copyright issues), but now that the entire company is no more thanks to the Disney buyout, the chances of this game popping up again are even more in doubt. Expect to spend a fortune on eBay or get ready to do some piracy of your own.
    • Finally Subverted. Tim Schafer and Double Fine are remastering the game for PlayStation 4, PS Vita, Microsoft Windows, OS X, and Linux, with expectations to release in early 2016.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • In the original drafts, the three playing characters would be selected from six different ones, as in the original Maniac Mansion. Apart from Bernard, Hoagie and Laverne, Razor would have returned and there were two new original characters: Chester the poet and Moonglow the hippie. This idea was abandoned as it was judged too complicated, but elements of Chester's design were reused for Ned/Jed Edison.
