Day of the Tentacle

Achievements / PSN Trophies

So this is the trophies page for Day of the Tentacle.

The Steam Achievements and the PSN (PS4 and PS Vita) trophies for the game Day of the Tentacle are exactly the same. You can find what they are and what you have to do to get these shiny trophies on this very page.
The game just throws most of the trophies at your head when you you just play through the game. All special and missable trophies have an additional explanation next to it. The order of the trophies on this page is the same as in your trophies list, so you can easily pick the hidden trophies in Day of the Tentacle from this list.

The longest and most complicated Trophy is the last one, the Chef Trophy, for which you have to cook the hamster in the microwave in Maniac Mansion. That's probably the reason you are here...

Trophy Chef
Cook the hamster in Maniac Mansion (Don't try this at home, kids!)

The long explanation is as follows:
Play Maniac Mansion on the computer in Ed's room. On the character selection screen take either Syd or Razor or both in you team, only they really do it.
Dave: Walk left, pull the doormat, pick up the key, use it on the door, get in. Enter the first door from the left, slowly walk to the right until you see Edna at the fridge (keep her on the right side of the screen) and run back to the left and enter the door again and Edna is gone. Get into the kitchen again, to the right, through the dining room into the store room and take the fruit drinks with you. Get back to the left until you are in the lobby, step outside the door. New kid: Syd or Razor, get to the mansion, let Dave hand you the fruitdrinks, into the mansion, upstairs, left, pick up the wax fruits, back to the hallway, through the security door, to the right, up the stairs. Feed the green tentacle with the wax fruits and then the fruit drinks (the order is important!), continue to the left, up the stairs, get into the 4th door from the left. Let Dave ring the doorbell, wait a second after Ed left his room, then get back to the hallway again, enter the 3rd door from the left (to the left of the room you were just hiding in), grab that poor hamster, get out, enter 4th door from the left again, watch the cutscene with Ed at the door, wait some time until Ed is back in his room (he is fast but you just don't want to meet him in the mansion).
Now get downstairs again and into the kitchen and you can finally put the hamster into the microwave and turn it on. And then continue and complete the whole game... but you have that trophy already.
