Maniac Mansion was first released in 1987 for the MS-DOS, Apple II and C-64 and sits amongst my childhood memories, right next to Loom and Monkey Island as 'one of those games you'll always love'. As a result, I might be slightly biased when I say that I think that the remake that 'edison interactive' has been toiling on since 2008 looks like it's going to be absolutely splendid.

However, don't take my word for it. Here's a 7 minute trailer you might want to watch in order to justify possible excitement in regards to the game.
