Day of the Tentacle Toblerone Box

Day of the Tentacle (Lucasarts, 1993) is a beautiful and unsurpassed adventure game created by the Tim Schafer and Dave Grossman with a little help from Ron Gilbert. It also happens to be the sequel to Gilbert's groundbreaking Maniac Mansion. Though the game itself isn't particularly rare, its triangular toblerone-shaped boxed version -the one you see above- has been known to sell for over 500$. It's rare. And beautiful. Also, I own a copy which I adore, though you too dear friends can follow the link to this Day of the Tentacle auction and join our happy club. Seller ships worldwide.

  2. Hmmm... I think I prefer a few hundred actual Toblerone bars instead, for that price.

  3. But think of your health! DoTT is very healthy and low cholesterol too.

    oops, sorry pal, just drooled all over your blog.
    Jokes apart, it's a GREAT packaging, for a GREAT adventure (all cousin Ted's stuff always made me laugh like an idiot).

    (ps. Gnome, I wrote about Beast, check it out!)

    1. Nothing is particularly steep when it gets both Ron Gilbert and Tim Schafer to work on a new adventure :)

      Well, almost nothing...
