Get the Full Throttle License.

... If anybody can make a good point and click adventure (nowadays), it's you guys at TellTale games. Let's face it, Sam and Max was a much more popular franchise than Full Throttle ever was, and you guys managed to get the rights to that. In theory, it should be even easier to get the rights to Full Throttle.

I can already see it in my head. There could be driving games (with Ben's motorcycle) similar to the minigames in Sam and Max. Like say, dodging exposed land mines or "tire traps" left by the Cave Fish, or picking fights with other bikers for equipment like in FT1.

Another feature could be the use of different types of methods, like in FT1. A fist icon woudl imply the use of your hands. Either to pick up an object, or to physically threaten another character. Simplifying it further would be to put "intimidation" or "fightin' words" dialogue options in red, with the rest being in white.

As for plot.... well, I'll leave that to you guys. :) Though some suggestions: Give the audience some backstory on the world of Full Throttle. Was there a nuclear war? How far in the future is this? What's going on in the dense urban areas of the world while the Polecats (Ben's gang) are riding in the outback? Is Ben starting to age? Or is he as spry as ever? How are the polecats doing? Are members leaving for other gangs?

And so on and so forth. I just thought I'd throw that idea out there, if the staff actually read the "Yak" forum. If you want to appeal to the nostalgic gamers who love to point and click... just remember. Full Throttle appeals to almost the same audience as Sam and Max. And it may even attract more customers who are more interested in hard-edged characters than comedy.
