In the caren1.3 crt is this Demo included.
Are you really working on a remake?

What TheRyk said. IIRC there's some additional info in the file somewhere if you look through the memory. Something like "...to be finished soon after hell freezes over" or the like. After all this is a (very nice!) demo, not a game preview.

What do you mean/expect? It's a demo, no game preview. IIRC enthusi always made very clear that he would not work on any SCUMM game

Great artwork!
Is there an engine behind it?
Or just a 'demo', like described?

Any news on this? WOuld be willing to do some graphics, if needed :)

Nice comeback from Zak!

Credits? My guess too about coding goes to enthusi... But it'd be nice to know who upgraded the graphics.

Yeah and thanks for greetings! :)

Ed, hey you can take it for granted that everybody loves you comrades at Wrath Design laboratories. ;)

Respect for the effort!

I hope the experience and devtools resulting from this project will yield a nicely souped-up Manic Mansion for SCPU+SuperRAM and other exotic configs.
-That would be TWICEASAMASING! ;]

Wow, incredible! I was always fond of the C64 graphics of this game (I don't like how the characters look in the 16-bit versions) but the general graphic improvement of this is astounding! Are you really releasing this? Looking forward!

Same here =D Let´s hope that is going to be the surprise the scroller told us about =) Already hoped for something like that in Enthusi´s "Maniac Mansion" version.

Indeed nice improvements. I look forward to enjoying this when it arrives - and I hold high hopes that a normal REU-solution (ehm, 1541U) will be supported.
