Double Fine Studios recently released the remastered version of Day of the Tentacle for the PS4, PS Vita and PC. Te game features improved graphics, higher quality sound and refined playability designed for console and portable gamers. There’s a complete walkthrough available for Day of the Tentacle Remastered to help you out with some of the puzzles and challenges in the game.
YouTuber RabidRetrospectGames has up a five part video playlist for the Day of the Tentacle Remastered, covering the game that runs for nearly three and a half hours. You can check out the playlist below.
There’s a quick rundown of the controls for those of you who need a quick reminder. Since it’s no longer relegated to being a keyboard and mouse game, it requires a bit of finger-ballet finesse to work you way around the controller layout to execute certain functions, such as using the left and right bumpers to cycle through the inventory and the Triangle to open the inventory. You can use ‘X’ on the DS4 to confirm or walk to areas. The Square button on the DS4 interacts with objects. You can also cancel or skip using the Circle button on the DS4.
It’s kind of cool how you can instantly turn on developer commentary with the down button on the D-pad. The left and right D-pad buttons are also used to quickly switch to different different characters.
Early in the game you can grab the help wanted sign and the filler in the first room you start in. If you head into the office you can grab the Booboo-B-Gone and the Swiss handbook. After you grab the items head back into the main foyer and open the grandfather clock and then climb inside.

You can take the diagram off the wall and leave the office.
After talking to the other humans after you attempt to go outside a tentacle will put you back in jail. Talk to the guard and tell him you have to go to the bathroom. He’ll take you outside.
