Report: Day of the Tentacle remake was '80% done' before canceled by LucasArts

Classic adventure game Day of the Tentacle was being remade a la the Monkey Island special editions. Developed by LucasArts Singapore, the remastered game would have been pseudo-3D, with remade background art and new cut-scenes.

The project was never officially greenlit, but it was apparently almost finished, with one source claiming it was "80% done."

In spite of how close to completion the remake was, a LucasArts exec said that there was "no interest" in continuing to make "legacy" games. "For many involved this was a dream project," a source told Kotaku in an expose about the company's downfall. "But sadly, like many, many LucasArts games in development, it never saw the light of day."
