Official description
Why is there a chainsaw in the kitchen? And a nuclear reactor in the basement? And disembodied tentacles hopping around? And why does that peculiar doctor keep going "Heh, heh, heh... "? Strange things have been going on for years up at Dr. Fred's old mansion, ever since that meteor landed just outside the house. But when a sweet young cheerleader named Sandy disappeared into the basement, boyfriend Dave knew it was time to take a look behind the good doctor's door. Your task is to help Dave choose a rescue team and guide them on the wildest, wierdest mission your NES system has ever seen. The storyline depends on the individual talents and quirks of the team members you select, and no matter how many times you play, the outcome is never quite the same. Sometimes it's puzzling, sometimes scary, sometimes downright funny, but it's always, always a challenge. So if you're looking for a comedy-adventure that makes you think as hard as you laugh, get into Maniac Mansion today. And then try, just try, to get out!

Editor note
The Japanese Famicom version of Maniac Mansion was developed by Jaleco and while it is essentially Maniac Mansion it is not the same game as the port done by LucasFilm Games with some development also by Realtime Associates. The LucasFilm Games version is the one that was translated and published in every other region. The LucasFilm Games version uses battery backed save RAM. The Famicom version credits simple show Maniac Mansion Project Room as the creators and coordinated by Hiroyo Odachi. The The LucasFilm Games version has a full list of credits. No people developed for both versions. These two game are as different as the different versions of Tetris for NES.
