[QUOTE=Tom]I think they did Maniac Mansion as well? I found that too hard though lol.[/QUOTE] "Where's that chainsaw?"
Tim Schafer used to work for LucasArts until 2000. Maniac Mansion is the first SCUMM-based adventure from LucasArts, published 1987, and the head of that one was Ron Gilbert. Tim started working for LucasArt in 1989, assisting Ron Gilbert and taking his position, as Ron left LucasArt.
Day of the tentacle is a kind of sequel to Maniac Mansion, btw.
