With Tim Schafer making the announcement via the latest Xbox Live's Major Nelson podcast which will see a trio of classic LucasArts adventure games making their way to Xbox Game Pass for Xbox and Windows 10 on October 29. The games in question are the remasters Tim spearheaded at his studio Double Fine in recent years - Grim Fandango, Day of the Tentacle, and Full Throttle.

All three are currently available on PlayStation 4 and PC - but with Double Fine now a part of the Xbox Game Studios family, their arrival to Game Pass is no doubt a bit of great news.

Originally released by LucasArts in 1993 as a sequel to Ron Gilbert’s ground breaking Maniac Mansion, Day of the Tentacle is a mind-bending, time travel, cartoon puzzle adventure game in which three unlikely friends work together to prevent an evil mutated purple tentacle from taking over the world!

Originally released by LucasArts in 1995, Full Throttle is a classic graphic adventure game from industry legend Tim Schafer, telling the story of Ben Throttle; butt-kicking leader of biker gang the Polecats, who gets caught up in a tale of Motorcycles, Mayhem, and Murder.

One of the most acclaimed adventure games of all time is now back, better than ever. Grim Fandango‘s epic story of four years in the after-life of Manny Calavera, travel agent to the dead, has been remastered to look, sound, and control even better than when it won countless awards and was considered one of the best games of the year upon its original launch. Grim Fandango still stands as a classic of the genre, with unforgettable characters and unique combination of film noir and Mexican folklore.

I'll take any excuse to fire up Day of the Tentacle on a new bit of hardware - be it the Xbox Series X or a GeForce RTX 3080-powered PC. There's just nothing like it.
