More Tentacle adventures 'feasable' 19 Jun, 2009, 20:47 / 10 comments

It's stating the bleeding obvious, but it's always nice to read in print on screen. Telltale's Dan Connors reveals to Videogamer.com that they have their eyes on other LucasArts franchises for future new episodic adventures.
When asked if Day of the Tentacle was feasible, Connors replied: “I would say feasible is a good word.”

“To me I always think of the big three as, and maybe it’s just because of when I was playing and when I was first starting at LucasArts, I always think of Sam & Max, Day of the Tentacle and Monkey Island as the big three franchises," Connors told us. "Having access to Steve and access to Dave Grossman and everything else… I really love Day of the Tentacle.

“Although I wanted to do, and my ideas always get shot down, but I wanted to see, like a 32-year-old Hoagie, or Bernard, Hoagie and Laverne all grown up with jobs and what not. But we’ll see if that gets any traction.”
Neat!

    But What About Grim Fandango?

    I never really enjoyed GF for various reasons including controls, graphics, and it being released when adventure games started dying out, but the characters and plot don't seem to have much to offer for a sequel, and that was Tim Schafer's (Double Fine) game. DOTT was Dave Grossman's (Telltale) last LucasArts game.

    I think of a sequel to Grim Fandango the same way I think of a sequel to Casablanca.

    Thank you thank you THANK YOU, Udvarnoky, that is the perfect way of stating that point.

    Not Precisely A sequel Per Se, Is how I always envisioned it. Rather, an entirely new experience in the same universe, with different characters, different or changed locales, added depth, increased lore. It's like, there are different movies in the style of Casablanca, Noirs and Neo Noirs, but they all explore unique concepts.

    Yes, I'm with Icebox. Not a sequel, the characters are done. I want to see some more stories in the same world and style.
