Day Of The Tentacle - Animated Illustration

As a kid I loved playing Graphic Adventures, especially those by LucasArts. Day of the Tentacle (or DOTT for short) was the sequel to Maniac Mansion and was the first "Talkie" game I played (this was the first game to have speech throughout which seems like a bizarre thing to mention in todays world, but back then it was a big deal!) 

For those that don't know, the main characters in DOTT, Bernard, Hoagie and Laverne used the Chron-o-John to travel through time to prevent the evil Purple Tentacle from manipulating time to control the world! As you can probably guess, it was a very surreal and funny game! 

This one was just begging to be animated!  The image was featured on Kotaku, Little Chimp Society and the creator of Day Of The Tentacle, Tim Schafer liked it, and remarked "Nice! Probably more things moving there than in the actual game! :)" 
As Bernard would say: "Neat!"

Have fun,
