Double Fine Productions will release three classic Lucas Arts remasters on Xbox Game Pass later this month.

Speaking during the Xbox Podcast today, Double Fine’s Tim Schafer announced Grim Fandango Remastered, Day of the Tentacle Remastered, and Full Throttle Remastered will come to Xbox Game Pass.

Day of the Tentacle Remastered is a cartoon puzzle adventure. In it, three friends work together to prevent an “evil mutated purple tentacle” from taking over the world. You will take control of the trio and solve puzzles using time travel to explore different periods of history.

Graphic adventure game Full Throttle Remastered tells the story of biker Ben Throttle who gets caught up in a tale of “Motorcycles, Mayhem, and Murder.”

Then, there’s the rather awesome Grim Fandango Remastered which takes place in the afterlife. In the game, you play as Manny Calavera who is a “travel agent to the dead” who sells luxury packages to souls on their four-year journey to eternal rest. The game combines elements of the Aztec belief of the afterlife with film noir style.

You will be able to download and play the games starting October 29 for PC, and Xbox One.
