Day of the Tentacle :colour: by ansi86 Day of the Tentacle :colour: by ansi86
Coloured version. Download for .ans file

Holy crap! DD!!!!

Thanks so much for making this piece known on deviantart! I guess I missed the onslaught of action, but I'd just like to mention that this is the colourized version of an entry I made for one of :icondiamondie:'s contests. I've got the B&W version in my gallery, too... but it's nowhere as awesome as this and placed 3rd. I actually went back to this version and made a few more touch-ups.

Anyway, enough rambling, thanks again for all the comments and faves and watches and support. :)

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-03-10
The suggester says: '' Probably only the oldest of us remember the second chapter of Maniac Mansion, titled like this deviation, but I'm sure that everybody will enjoy this portrait of the evil purple tentacle. One of the funniest and coolest character of an old videogame well represented in Text art form.'' Day of the Tentacle :colour: by ~ansi86 ( Suggested by Little-Vampire and Featured by Sander-Seto )

I completely agree, c4rsten.  This particular piece was done for a contest that another deviant held a few years back.  One requirement was that it had to be ascii.

I have several ansi pieces in my gallery as well, if you want to take a look you're more than welcome.  I'm not the best at it, though lol.  If you haven't, make sure you check out these guys to see some masterpieces:

Sander-Seto, Thanks so much for the support. Upping my piece as a DD means a lot to me. I kinda wondered what was up when you faved my piece and how people were all of a sudden finding it, but I never really expected a DD to appear. lol.

Sweet surprise for me, too. It's a good feeling getting a DD.

If you want to play it again, grab a copy and play it on ScummVM.

Thanks so much, that comment means a lot to me. :) I wish more ansi/ascii got recognized for DD's. The fact that it doesn't makes me feel extra special for having this piece selected for a DD.

Yeah man. I just felt a little nostalgic, I've been messing with a computer since like age 7 and I used to see lots of old ANSI ASCII art (remember the days of Wolf3d?). Still a great piece though mate.

we're about the same age. My mom's a librarian, so I've always had a close connection to technology. I remember messing with computers as early as like 8 or so. First PC game I recall playing was that Ernie's Big Splash sesame street game. lol.

Wolfenstein 3D is killer. Ever play the add-on?
