I’ve got a modern PC running Windows 7 x64. How could I go about obtaining, and playing Day of the Tentacle?
First, you’ll want to grab a copy of ScummVM. DOTT (as well as a bunch of other adventure games from that era) all run on a common game engine. ScummVM is a modern implementation of that game engine which has been ported to pretty much every platform under the sun.
Next, you’ll need a copy of Day of the Tentacle’s data files. (
tentacle.001) These come from the original game CD, which you’ll need to obtain through whatever method you prefer. Once you have them, just click “Add Game” in ScummVM and browse to the directory they’re found in.
