Day of the Tentacle Historical References for non-Americans 07 Aug, 2015 / 4 comments

With the Day of the Tentacle: Special Edition just around the corner, it might be time for you to familiarize yourself with the commonly held American history myths that DOTT makes reference to.

With this in mind, Johnny "ThunderPeel2001" Walker has stepped in, and created a helpful Day of the Tentacle History Lesson for non-Americans to help you appreciate the American folklore and jokes (and puzzles) in the game.

Get reading now (although don't necessarily use what you learn in a history exam -- Tim Schafer and Dave Grossman weren't big on historical accuracy!)

    Oops! It was supposed to automatically go live while I was away, but it didn't for some reason. I had to manually publish it, and then it kept the date it was supposed to go live. Doh.

    Did I miss any big references mentioned in the game, does anyone know?

    Strangely it says August 3rd, but I only saw it now. Did not see it yet on Friday?

    It's likely Thunderpeel wrote it up on the 3rd but didn't post it until later and Blogger posted it with the date on the draft. That's happened to me before on my blog.

    This made me immediately think of an essay I had read a few years back on the topic of historical accuracy of DOTT. As a matter of fact, I just found it on this very site :)
