Maniac Mansion was the first game to use the SCUMM scripting utility (Script Creation Utility for Maniac Mansion).
Dave's girlfriend Sandy is kidnapped, and he must go in to the creepy mansion with two other kids to save her.
Dave must always be in the party, but the player can choose any of the other kids to go with him. The other kids have special abilities that can help in the mission, and using these special abilities will lead to other possible endings to the game.
A fan-made remake titled Maniac Mansion Deluxe, created using Adventure Game Studio, was released in 2004.
