Hands up if you're a fan of Lucasarts' old point 'n click adventure games. Yep, we here at Dealspwn are too, and it seems a talented group of German fans were so enthralled by Maniac Mansion and its sequel, Day of the Tentacle, that they've set about remaking the original with the sequel's updated visuals and GUI.
According to their website, 'Edison Interactive' have named the project 'Night of the Meteor', and will include "more puzzles, more dialoge, more animaition [sic] and more sound & music to this classic adventure."
Our ambition is to transform the original game into the cartoonish style of its successor 'Day of the Tentacle' and try to make it worth playing even for people who know the old 'Maniac Mansion' inside out.
The first trailer is full of promise, and precious little seems to have been lost in the translation. Naturally, we'll have more for you as soon as we get it. In the meantime, why not head on over to Steam and remind yourself why point and click adventure games are as relevant now as ever.
