New Sam & Max games in 2020/2021!!!
How come nobody is talking about the new Sam & Max games that are coming out? I guess that after a whole decade of no new S&M related releases at all, most people abandoned these forums. The games are:
- "Sam & Max: This Time It's Virtual!" by Happy Giant (https://happygiant.com/samandmax/)
- "Sam & Max: Save The World Remastered", by Skunkape Games (https://skunkapegames.com/samandmax/)
I know that one of these games is "just" a remaster, and that none of these games are by the current Telltale Games team, but still I thought it was worth a mention. After all, these forums are still up even though the current Telltale doesn't have the rights to Sam & Max anymore.
Happy Giant is a company specialized in augmented reality, virtual reality and mobile games. I'm still not sure how will I like this style of gameplay, but having a brand new Sam & Max game in 2021 sure is nice.
Skunkape Games is a company made up from people who worked in the original Telltale Games team and in the original Sam & Max seasons, so it's the best team for such a remaster. It's now available for PC and Nintendo Switch, with physical versions being released by Limited Run Games on April 30th, 2021. They also sell a slip cover to hold all 3 physical releases of Sam & Max for the Nintendo Switch, so that means they won't stop with just releasing "Save The World Remastered".
I'm guessing they might even start with a Season 4 after they're done with the remasters! After all, it wouldn't make sense to create a new company (named after a Sam & Max character, no less!) only to make remasters and stop there.
Here's an extensive list of the enhancements in the new version of Save The World: https://steamcommunity.com/games/1440440/announcements/detail/2913231583179436797
We did talk about these, but it was over in the General Forum, as this particular forum was locked at the time.
There was also a thread about the soundtrack, but its top post was converted to spam, so I'm not going to link it here. Basically, Skunkape is also releasing the soundtracks with the games, either from the same place you got the game, or from Bandcamp if that's your preference.
Virtual thread (not much but it's there):
Looking forward to future releases!
Thanks for the reply. I went straight to this forum and didn't look into the General Forum, that's why I didn't see those posts. Maybe they could be moved here now that this forum works again?
