Sam & Max Season 2 Announced
SAM: Giant rat guys! Weird. Interesting.
MAX: And somehow appropriate. Shall we beat the living crap out of them, Sam?
SAM: Can’t think of a reason not to.
The Sam & Max series has been a favorite of mine ever since they “Hit the Road” way back when. Years of empty promises followed, eventually culminating in news that fantastic duo were going to make a return, in episodic form.
I have to be honest. I was completely skeptical. No developer had been able to really pull off episodic content (Here’s looking at you Valve), so all sources pointed toward this new Sam & Max series sucking tremendously. Oh, how wrong I was.
The first episode was a fantastic entry to the series, and managed to bring back all the zany humor we remembered. The episodes came in a tightly scheduled format, and each episode seemed to get better as each time they were released. By the end of the season, Sam & Max had established themselves as the current kings of episodic gaming.
With such success, it’s no surprise then that Telltale Games has announced the upcoming return of Sam & Max for the second season. As with season 1, the episodes will be released first on the Gametap network, with download options available on the Telltale website shortly thereafter. While not much information about the new season has been released, Telltale promises more information will surface during the San Diego Comic-Con.
