Return of the Tentacle point and click adventure is a free unofficial game available for Linux, Mac and Windows. This is a fan-made game based on Day of the Tentacle that not only runs well on Linux, but it’s actually pretty good.
So first, I would like to point out that this is only the prologue. Since there are future updates in the works and a project worth following. I did mention the release is free, very affordable.
Okay, so here is the run down of the game according to the developer catmic. And do take note that this is NOT an official sequel.
Also feel free to check the Readme. Since there some Unity hacks for certain features not implemented. Such as full screen.
Return of the Tentacle (Linux, Mac, Windows)
“Return of the Tentacle – Prologue” is a fan project and the free unofficial sequel to the iconic adventure game “Day of the Tentacle”. Purple Tentacle is back and tries to conquer the world and enslave humanity once more. The three friends Bernard, Laverne and Hoagie make their way back to the mansion of the mad scientist Dr. Fred – time travel should help saving the world.
Hunt down megalomaniacal Tentacles, have bizarre conversations and solve crazy puzzles. Bernard, Hoagie and Laverne roam hand-drawn locations filled with elaborately animated characters and atmospheric music and sounds. We have done everything possible in order to capture the atmosphere and the humor of the old classic and carry it into the 21st Century.
Control the characters just like in the good old 2D adventure game era with your mouse. A modern interface awaits! Apart from familiar faces of the original game, you will also encounter guest appearances from characters that belong in other games.”
Return of the Tentacle binaries are executable right after extracting the zip file. So installation is simple, download then extract the content and play. Which really impressive is the audio and visuals. The quality is there and the controls are simple. Also available in the Readme as well.
