Crazy Mansion: an alternate take on the MM universe


A few days ago I've heard about Crazy Mansion, another project with a crowdfunding campaign. It's very heavily inspired by both Maniac Mansion and Day of the Tentacle, but it doesn't use any copyrighted things from those games. Instead, it's a completely different story set in the same universe. It's created by Desperate Studios team, who created their first games in the days of C64 and Amiga. You may check this out for details:

Intriguing concept for a fan game, and certainly front page worthy. Thanks for posting this!

Not so stinky: the animations in the intro and the GUI design seem to be of almost professional quality. Therefore I suppose these low-quality sketches are yet to be redrawn.

It doesn't? There's a green tentacle jumping free in their artwork section.

Oh I just love humor about women being raped during war time:
"This Old woman told him something about kidnapping, strange acting persons, a slimy creature who has bulimia, a telefonbook where she got his number in the section and she mentioned the old Mansion.

Of course she also talked about ... Adolf Hitler... the rubble women after the end of world war two... her own war imprisonment and how russian soldiers died while raping her ... her twenty cat's in the last 60 years ... and more bull****. "

Seriously, **** this game.

Aren't germans used to become serious when talking about nazism?
