Day of the Tentacle remake was in the works before LucasArts was shuttered – report

Friday, 27th September 2013 20:32 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Day of the Tentacle was in the works at LucasArts Singapore before George Lucas sold his company to Disney, which shuttered the game division.

This according to a report over on Kotaku which covers the fall of the venerable studio.

Day of the Tentacle would have been released in a similar fashion to Monkey Island and would contain a remade background along with new cut-scenes.

While it was never greenlit for development despite it practically being completed, a Lucasarts executive said the company has “no interest” in re-releasing “legacy” titles, but instead the project was a “dream project [that] never saw the light of day.”

Thanks, Shack.

    If Disney isn’t going to use it, then release the rights to someone else…

    Like you said @pcbros “release the rights to someone else…”
    I really hope someday to get a release that would make this game awesome in VR !

    Very sad indeed. Great read over at Kotaku FYI. LucasArts made the best RTS ever in Star Wars Rebellion/Supremacy.

    It’s incredible to think that LucasArts may have been back on track with 2 great games (and maybe 1313) all in the works. Disney haven’t a clue about gaming so I am worried over the future of Star Wars games.

    A bad MMO, who knows how Battlefront will end up, probably a Clone Army of Battlefield, probably some kind of Star Wars Sims Edition with a racing game thrown in for the kids. /YAWN

    Just to add – never a true word spoken about the history of LucasArts -

    “The bay area is filled with people who have had their hearts broken by LucasFilm or LucasArts,” said one person connected to the studio. “The sad legacy of multiple presidents, multiple layoffs… there’s a lot of people out there who’ve been treated badly by the company.”
