Woah it's been more than 10 years since I saw these guys...One more game to add to my Christmas list. Glad to see that it's been getting decent scores and reviews. I'd really hate to see it turn out to be something like a lame attempt to revive a series, especially since I found the first game so great before.
Telltale Games launches landing page for new season of dog-and-rabbit-thingy episodic adventure series, indicating 2010 release.
Yesterday, Telltale Games released the fifth and final episode for its current season of Tales of Monkey Island, an adventure series following LucasArts' swashbuckling ne'er-do-well Guybrush Threepwood. Of course, that won't be the last stop in Telltale's revival of the adventure game genre. This week, Telltale launched a new Web site indicating that its Sam & Max series will return in 2010.
Though Telltale didn't delve into specifics of what gamers can expect from the new season of Sam & Max. However, the interstellar theme of the site indicates that the buttoned-down crime dog and his "hyperkinetic rabbit-thingy" companion will be undertaking new detective work in space. The site also contains a variety of embedded images, including what appear to be a Max-themed spaceship, a mustachioed Sam, and a demonic telephone, among others.
The Sam & Max teaser site also includes a form to sign up to receive e-mail alerts on new information concerning the next season of the game as it is announced. For an idea of what to expect from the new episodic adventure series, check out GameSpot's review of Sam & Max: Season 2.
I'm so glad this series has had a chance to live again in serial form. Hopefully this proves to be a catalyst for other developers who want to do adventure games or other genres with unconventional humor, now that there's a reliable audience for it.
@2point5RSman Hit the Road was MY first game love as well! haha. i remember buying the game at office max back in '93 for 50 bucks. i wanted to try out my new cd-rom drive ASAP. . blah blah look at me ramble. i'm looking forward to the next season!!!!!!!
Cool! Season 2 was amazing and after the great job they made on Tales of Monkey Island we can only expect more awesomeness.
Sam and Max are just hilarious. When I saw the second Night at the Museum, when Abe came alive, all I could think of was that crazy car chase and Lincoln's head!
In SPACE... space.... s p a c e.... s p a c e... Yay, might get this. I missed out on the first couple.
