'''Maniac Mansion''' was the
second first game to use the [[SCUMM]] scripting language, which is in fact an acronym for ''Script Creation Utility for Maniac Mansion''. The game follows Dave Miller and a group of his friends as they break into a strange mansion in an attempt to rescue Dave's girlfriend Sandy and stop the evil purple meteor from taking over the world. The game has a group of six characters to choose from (Dave must always be in your party), and multiple possible endings .
