Additional info

Included, as a computer in the home of the evil genius, is the complete original 'Maniac Mansion' game, which the user can play as a diversion within Day of the Tentacle. This is a noteworthy and remarkable Easter Egg, as it is a complete and unabridged piece of gaming software.

The game was originally intended to resemble Maniac Mansion more closely, with the player allowed to choose from among six characters (who would have included a male poet named Chester, a female hippie named Moonglow, and Razor from the original game). This idea was dropped in preproduction to simplify the project.

One of the aspects of Day of the Tentacle's plot is that it gives the game player the opportunity to interact with several important historical figures from colonial America, namely George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, John Hancock and Betsy Ross.
