    Jubilation! Only the logo looks like it says Same Max. Maybe it's just me.

    Still: woo!

    It's a strange and wonderful sensation to see a Sam & Max flash window on an adventure-game developers homepage....AGAIN. ;)
    P.S.: The FAQ was hilarious. :))

    When I recieved the mail announcing it, I just realised how much you are doing for the adventure game fans. You are bringing Sam & Max back! I actually haven't felt excited about you getting the lisence because I felt it would be nothing like the cancelled FP that I still miss, but I now feel that the lisence couldn't be in better hands. I'm unfournately not over FP yet, and I'm still very sceptical to SNM in episodic format, but I know you want to make the best and wants us to get the best, so I'm really looking forward to the game(s) and of course Steve Purcells new cartoon strips!

    In Max's own owrds, "I may scream like a grandmother!"

    Hey, here is something to consider! The animation company Nelvana , based out of Canada, owns the rights to the all-too-short-lived "Sam and Max" cartoon series. I have all of their VHS releases, but they've not released all of the episodes that they made and I know that they've never released them on DVD. (I keep looking.)

    This might be a GREAT opportunity to work with Nelvana for promotional material! "Buy Sam and Max and the entire cartoon series on DVD for one low price!" Or "Buy the game and get a special price on the DVD set!" The people who want the DVDs will be more likely to buy the game, and those who would buy the game anyway ... well ... they'd buy the game anyway!

    Something to consider!

    Just one request. PLEASE ... no episodic release. I'm willing to wait a year or more if it means that we'll get a full game at one time.

    They said it's episodic. :)

    Hey, that doesn't mean that I can't ask. They can always change the development plans. :p
  • edited November 2005
    yeah I'm also down for the non episode release. I hope that the csi game isn't done by episodes either....
  • edited November 2005
    >>Will Telltale’s game be based on the cancelled Sam & Max Freelance Police game?

    Cancelled Sam & Max Freelance Police game? What cancelled Sam & Max Freelance Police game?

    Freakin' hilarious.

    it'll be nice if they're on dvd release, i can't even find the tapes! :))

    It's very nice indeed to see that S&M will again one day cause further reduction of my already depleted brain cells... :D

    Bahhh, Brimming with excitement right now. I was so crushed after the first cancellation I switched platfoms, Im doubting TT will release anything for OSX. Perhaps Ill have to bust out the old machine... Still... cant.. contain.. joy.

    oh and OftenK I love your avatar I just saw TL/RX last night and they were amazing!

    CSI is a straight-to-retail product, as far as I understand, so that won't be episodic.

    But I'm all for Sam&Max being episodic, I've always had a soft spot in my heart for episodic games, that's ONE of the reasons i've been following Telltale so closely (well, apart from them having Sam&Max in the first place, Bone, the team's track record and so on.. heh)

    I think you need to update your site Hiero... Sam and Max have been SAVED!!

    I think it says Steve Purcell may make a few new comic strips. Does this make anyone else pants-wettingly excited? Maybe Telltale will be so kind as to sell some Sam and Max merchandise on their site? If so I will buy anything/everything they care to throw my way. Being 15 now and about 3 when the game came out means I was a little too young to actually appreciate the absolute wonderfulness of the crime-fighting duo. Now I treasure them above all else. I did see one or two of the episodes when I was in Australia once though.

    Yay for tie-ins! Like the complete cartoonstipworksbooks, the cartoon series archive on dvd(if the rights include those), new animations, new cartoon books, max plush dolls, world domination kits, cats, dogs, and ofcourse a couple of hundred game-episodes.

    I cannot express in words the joy that I am feeling at this moment, save that I may weep openly.

    I am also very excited about this. It is very good news. Lets hope Telltale can balance the 3 games (more?) they are working on nicely.

    I'm so glad to learn about these news... but...
    Actually I'm REALLY worried about the choice to make a series of episodical games... Wouldn't you all prefer a complete adventure to be found on the shelves??
  • edited November 2005
    Any way I can get it, my friend.
  • edited November 2005
    Hi everybody!!!

    I'am also very excited about this game. I was waiting like hell for Freelance Police and evry disappointed when bloody LA cancelled it! So i'm really happy that my favourite duo returns on PC!!!

    But I also would prefer a full-price retail version of this game which you can buy in stores. At least in different laguages.

    In Germany e.g. there are some publishers specialised in Adventure Games. Im sure they would publish it in cooperation with you (at least because they know who you guys are! ;) )
    The biggest in europe is dtp!!! ( Just for information... ;)

    So thank you for bringing this wonderful games to us,

    I don't care about it not coming in stores. I only want a large and detailed world. I am worried making the games as episodes will make the world in the games less detailed as they would have to worry about the size of the file to download. I want a large download. I feel bad for the people with low connection. At least make it over 120 mb. The modem people can manage that. I downloaded the Escape from Monkey Island demo, and that was 120 mb, and it took about 7 hours to complete when I was doing other things the same time. I could manage the extra costs if I still had dial-up. Or I would have asked a friend to download it to me.

    I remember how the world in Hit the Road grew larger and larger as you got further in the game, with new locations. I simply loved it, as you weren't done with places you had already been even though you had moved further in the game. And that makes me think of the FP-idea about many differend cases that lead to one über-plot.

    First episode: The office and some other places will be explored and a case will be solved. Game ended.
    The next episode: Making use of the resource-files of the first game and adding more locations and new puzzles in the locations already visited in episode 1 so you can solve case 2. In this way the world will continue to expand.

    Or maybe ths is not a good idea. The world would at one point be too large, and you would have to buy every game to enjoy one of them. Perhaps the episodes should play in their own world and its own locations. The last episode should also have it's own case, but if you have completed all the episodes, you should get a last case which is using the locations and resource-files of all the episodes.

    In this way every episode would be a single game in itself, but if you really are interested and wants all the episodes, you will get your reward.

    Maybe I'm just dreaming and it wouldn't work at all. But I wouldn't mind something in this direction. In this way you will have a great way to end the series of the games if you want to do other things, and maybe later start on a new "season" of Sam and Max games with new cases to solve and a new über-plot.

    Or maybe the series should go on forever and ever and not have any final episode at all.

    I agree with all of you...
    I play the orignial game, like... um...
    4th grade, perhaphs earlier. THE GAME WAS SO FREAKING NEAT BACK THEN!!!! Like Calvin and Hobbies, it taught me new vocabulary (dad, whats "gratuitous" mean?) and gave me new catch phrases to annoy everyone with (may the sun rise and annoy you!). I was deeply hurt when Lucas arts cancelled the game. I MEAN, YOU PUT MAX'S FREAKING HEAD IN A MAP AS A HIDDEN THING IN DARK FORCES, AND YOU HAD TO CANCEL THE GAME?!?! BS, Lucas! YOU WERE MY HERO!!! THE CHOSEN ONE!!! WHYY?!?!?!?!?! Which reminds me...

    Lets do Lucas!
    Lucas Lucas, fo mucas,
    bananafana, fo fucas,
    fee-fi fo foocas,

    Thank yew! Thank yew very much!
