Day of the Tentacle

Made by LucasArts, released in 1993

Let's All Go to the Human Show



Current Zar note: I did this LP in 2006! I left my write-up mostly unchanged.




ANYWAY I decided to see if I could get Laverne's chapter out of the way in one big chunk, so this installment is gonna be longer than usual. Still, it doesn't compare to the intense screencap action of the Thraddash but it's still pretty big.

We're actually close to the end, believe it or not!

Again, I know exactly what to do so it's item swapping time. White-out to Laverne...

flush

Fake barf to Laverne...

Disembodied voice of Oozo to Laverne...

And finally, cryogenic experiments!

There we go. Hamsters. Flagstaff. I can't believe I'm still in Flagstaff. Always a feature.

Horse teeth!

Squeaky mouse...

Spaghetti! Which is actually kind of interesting. Note that it's just dry spaghetti?

GASP

Have you figured out what I'm going to do yet? If you have I'm pretty impressed.

Now THAT'D be uncomfortable.

Helloooo Ted. Bwahahahaha. LEISURE SUIT

I actually do have a lava lamp.

Roller skates. That's gotta be useful.

Extension cord. Gotta have it.

hahahaha

Mmhmm.

A convenient place for a hamster generator!

WHAT TO DO?

Hahaha, poor med student Laverne. No wonder she's stressed out of her mind.

hee hee.

I'LL BE BACK

WHOOP

I just happened to get Purple with that weird smile there. GO ME.

FIRST COMMENT IS LOVELY LAVERNE

Will this come into play later? What do YOU think, audience?

That WOULD be tricky.

Tentacles are very long-lived I guess.

QUICK THINK OF SOMETHING

No one suspects a thing.

?

Well who'd really want to conquer Antartica anyway

That'd be a thing to see.

I love how Laverne is like the hottest thing on the planet in her disguise.

It's okay Tentacle guard, at least you still have YOUR WIFE THAT YOU FORGOT TO MENTION

What kind of place IS Club Tentacle?

BURN

Anyway enough of that

hey a kitty

It might be hard to tell, but the cat was scratching its back on the fence.

>D

Alriiight. You can always have a use for a fake skunk.

Something about that cracks me up. Just prosthetic I think. hee.

yoink

She says this so gleefully. I love you Laverne.

I will have many uses for you.

Alright, let's get this party started!

Name tags for the human show, which I am totally going to win.

BUT FIRST

Are tentacles like fish or worms or what

Haha, unintentional really unamused look on Laverne's face there.

PUSH PUSH PUSH

YOU'RE GOIN DOWN, HAROLD

Kind of military.

Hahahaha would you bite a tentacle? If it kept touching you? Would you?

A POSSIBLE HINT?!!?!?!

Worked out of her miiiind

SHUT UP ALREADY

Fitting that he comes from Washington's genes.

Over in the highly restricted judging area.

I was about to say

:D

Haha, I like that sometimes they apologize and sometimes they don't.

:O

Darn.

HAIR!

Bingo.

Wait where'd that meatball come from it was just noodles before

eh MOVING ON

Language :O

Alright, my mummy's set up.

Now let's get rid of the competition.

The realization dawns on Harold.

this contest is mine

They kind of wobble along. It's much faster than how normal tentacles move.

hee hee

Yes, play into my claws.

I DON'T NEED BRIBES

Yes, yeeeess

There are actually a LOT of jokes if you go through this repeatedly. I found out while poking through the DOTT sound files.

YEAH

You are all fools, FOOLS

Tentacon, Baltimore 2505.

::weeps::

I didn't catch it here, but Laverne dabs at her eyes with the hem of her costume. Aww.

Hee hee

It makes me weird that I want to touch a tentacle, doesn't it? I just want to know how they feel. DON'T JUDGE ME.

Something about how straightforward that is cracks me up.

PERHAPS.

Something about how that's his only reply makes me laugh way too hard.

I KNOW HOW TO WARM THIS HAMSTER UP

:D

POW

Just kidding!

Who says games don't teach you anything!

Laundry's done!

The hamster looks baffled.

THANKS LAVERNE

Yes, it all goes according to plan.

BE SURE TO TELL HER ABOUT ME TOO OKAY THANKS BYE

Simple enough!

You're my hero, Laverne.

How convenient!

Mwahahahaha

And that gets him out of my hair!

I love how Laverne says this. It's stuck in my brain.

We're all megalomaniacal tyrants inside. LOOK IN YOUR HEART, YOU KNOW IT TO BE TRUE

Now down into the secret laaab

That's set-up...

Here we go

!!!!

One of the great things I didn't get here is that if you look at the hubcap, Laverne says something like "This thing has no purpose WHY DID I PICK THIS UP >O" and gets all angry about it. Which is great because having played adventure games so much I pick up EVERYTHING and not even think of why anymore, and it was just a great comment on that tendency. The hubcap is also useless.

Not for long.

And the hamster survives another trial!

BINGO.

And for the heck of it, a video of the Pony Express!

I made two others but they'll go up when we finish the thing. I might go back and get some older videos, I dunno.

WE'RE GETTING THERE FOLKS, I TOLD YOU I'D FINISH IT
