Day of The Tentacle is a SCUMM engine title and a decade and a half later was remastered by the original director Tim Schafer. Day of The Tentacle Remastered was released for Windows, OS X, and the game consoles in March while the Linux version has finally premiered today.
Day of the Tentacle Remastered is now available for the first time on Linux, and can be found on Steam and Humble Store with a Linux launch discount. It should also be up on GOG as soon as they set it live.
