Maniac Mansion Lucasfilm Games 1987

Maniac Mansion has become known among video game players and programmers for its highly-acclaimed gameplay and its introduction of new ideas into gaming, including multiple possible endings, multiple user-selectable characters with significantly different abilities, and critical clues contained in numerous cut scenes. At the start of the game, the hero, Dave Miller, finds that his girlfriend, Sandy Pantz, has been abducted by Dr. Fred Edison, and sets out to save her, with two of his friends. The player could select the friends from a group of six, and the game would play somewhat differently depending on which friends were selected. The game was a parody of the horror B-movie genre, featuring a secret lab, leftover tentacles, and an evil mastermind. Unlike most adventure games, Maniac Mansion had several possible playable characters. The player controls Dave and two other characters, chosen from six additional characters, each of whom has their own distinct skills and quirks. It was notable for its multiple possible endings, depending on which characters the player used (and which ones survived) and what those characters did. It was the first game to use the SCUMM engine. In 1989, an enhanced version of Maniac Mansion with higher resolution EGA graphics for the PC was released. It also spawned a very popular sequel called Day Of The Tentacle and was even an animated tv series than ran for several years.
