In its early days of glory, Lucasfilm Games publishes about 1-2 adventure or quest games per year. The company is well known for the superb graphics and gameplay in its games. Among these titles is Maniac Mansion—a classic adventure game from the days when the PC XT rules the world. The game has even inspired a television series by the same name.

If you google maniac mansion, you can find a remade version by Lucasfan. Same goes for King's quest 3, 2, and 1, but on different sites. It's a little different, but better graphics, runs on xp, and no copyrights in game.

WOW, amazing to see another Kirstin Wood on this site...and in Perth too!! I was just googling to see if there were any updates on Maniac Mansion after id been telling a friend about it. MM was my favourite game on the C64..ahhh those were the days. I would absolutely love to see the game updated with top notch graphics and made available on PC or play station. I'll keep my fingers crossed that that day is not too far away :-)

I love this game. every thing that was said was true even the down parts about the game. But the up part is we always played it no matter if it was to slow or if its 1 slot to save.

i know what you mean...and i came across your article searching for a walkthrough to maniac mansion, which im now going to bypass. i already ruined grim fandango(although i did solve alot of it on my own)which is one of the best games ever made. I am going to seek help at a CA (cheaters anonimous) meeting and thankyou for reminding me of th shame of cheating yourself out of solving the game alone.

Hi there,
in my opinion "Maniac Mansion" and Zak McKracken were the greatest Adventures ever. They opened new ways of computer playing and brought a lot of fun, not only into a child's world of fantasy.
