Maniac Mansion: Day of the Tentacle was the sequel to Maniac Mansion, and the eighth game to use the SCUMM scripting language.

Later, the game follows the trio as they go back in time to stop the evil purple tentacle from changing the past for his own benefit.
The CD versions were so-called "talkie versions" and included speech for each of the lines of text said by the characters in the game.
