I miss Sam and Max

edited January 2014 in Sam & Max

Yeah, the Walking Dead Game was great but now I'm beggining to miss Sam and Max. The game was awesome and it had lots of comedy and puzzles.
I wish Telltale would make a season 4 just to show that Telltale hasn't forgotten about Sam and Max and the fans of Sam and Max.


  • You aren't alone. Granted, I think they had a good run during the three Seasons, but I would always be down for more Sam and Max.

    Yeah, I would be happy if we would get a season 4. To be honest, it seems that Telltale will only focus on the Walking Dead and other new games like Fables, Borderlands etc and the other TTG games will be left in the dust. Hell, I don't think Back To The Future will have a second season very soon.

  • My heart sunk a little when I saw this forum was now banished to the "view all games" section.

    Really though, it's the characters/franchise I miss more than anything. It's such a unique brand of humor and atmosphere, that you wind up still wondering about it 4 years later.

  • at least sam and max have at leat achance to come back, we'll never even see strong bad again, and i don't mean sbcg4ap season 2, i mean ever see him again (but i also am pretty sad about sam and max as well, and i miss them too, just not as much)

  • I think I read from somewhere that the TTG doesn't plan on making Season 4, but they think they might make separate episodes at some point in the future.

    I guess that's better than nothing, but still I would prefer Season 4 over the new franchises, despite the fact that I'm Game of Thrones fan (I have never heard about Borderlands before). However it was Sam & Max and Monkey Island which brought me here, because I was fan of LucasArts' Sam & Max: Hit the Road and Monkey Island -series.

    I don't know about the possibility of there never being a season 4, but there was an article on IGN where they were talking about their "dream IPs" (Game of Thrones, most likely), and at the end of the article, they specifically mentioned Sam & Max. They said they weren't working on a full-season, but something "Poker"-sized. To me, that's at least something, so I'm hopeful and happy on that account :D Now all we have to do is wait for them to announce it, which is the hard part >_<

    Sounds like we have read same interviews, but my interpretation of this:

    Bruner also emphasized, "We love Sam & Max and certainly haven't forgotten about them! I think you'll see something smaller (more like Poker) than a full Season, and probably not for a bit, but we have NOT forgotten about them, we've just been super busy growing like crazy."

    is that they aren't currently planning on making a new season, but might make separate episodes.

  • Hey, better than nothing, right? :D At least they're still working with the series.

  • I just hope it's not a reboot of the series. I want it to be a continuation of the series.

    I find that highly unlikely, it just isn't Telltale's style. They didn't reboot the series when they made Season 1, but filled it with references to LucasArts' Sam & Max Hit the Road. If they will make new Sam & Max episodes those will most likely be new independent adventures.

    I really miss Sam & Max to. When telltale posted on reddit that they won't be making another season of Sam & Max I think I died a little inside. I mean I love both TWD and TWAU but I don't want telltale to forget the series that made them well "Telltale". Telltale please don't let my favorite IP from yours die.

    To be fair, they just implied they wouldn't be touching it for a while.

  • Decided I'd pop in the sam and max forums just to agree, I miss Sam and Max, and the days back before the telltale forums were a cesspool of complaining about episodes not being out yet.

  • I think more than anything I really miss the sense of humor Sam and Max had. I understand why telltale likes their serious games, and they've all been really good, but Sam and Max had such solid writing and was so creative in its comedy! I would defiantly welcome independent episodes, I just want to spend more time in the weird world with all the brilliantly bizarre characters!

  • Sam and Max as a series will never be revisited by Telltale again -- the series is dead. The best you can hope for is appearances in things like Poker Night 3 etc. As a point and click adventure game, Telltale has no intentions of ever doing that again.

    ^ that is a terrible thing to say.

    Sam and Max is really something I fell in love with after playing the Tell Tale games version of it. It was witty, weird, funny, I learned a lot of vocabulary, the stories were amazing, I liked to shoot at random stuff, and I FREAKING LOVE THE CHARACTERS.

    Sam: Zip it, little buddy

    I either missed that quote, or don't remember it. Either way, what a shame.

    There was also that weird quote about the spark plugs from The Penal Zone, though. :P

  • edited March 2014

    That quote was a winner, I think a lot of people missed that quote though, I looked through all the playthroughs for the quote and I could only find one. [ at around 1:17 ... There were tons of innuendos in the games.. Which I appreciate :D

  • Not to mention this is the only season with a E-10 rating even though it was clearly the most "mature" season.

  • Telltale will not be revisiting Sam & Max as a game. The best you can hope for is little cameos in other games. But as for a Season 4, Telltale couldn't be less interested in revisiting the series. Kind of wish they would relinquish control of the franchise to someone who cares about it.

  • I couldn't help but notice that you seem to be saying that a lot recently. And to be frank, we don't know that for sure. We know Telltale is working on something Sam & Max related that's smaller than a season, but they never said anything about never doing another season or game again. I'm more in favor of keeping an optimistic mind about this sort of thing :D

    Personally, I'm curious as to why you seem solidly convinced that Telltale doesn't care about Sam & Max anymore (especially when Kevin Bruner said "We love Sam & Max and certainly haven't forgotten about them!" in an article about other games). If you can provide us with some sort of evidence that they said they're never doing another Sam & Max game again, well, then I'd have more of a mind to believe it.

    Here's the link to the article I mentioned, in case you're interested (the Sam & Max mention is at the end of the article, right below the video): http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/10/30/telltale-games-talks-star-wars-dream-ip-and-its-future

  • Sam & Max haven't been forgotten, they are just a little busy with these... Minecraft Story Mode and Batman... They are just busy with them and hopefully we will see Sam & Max Season 4 in 2017, and i didn't say that it's a game... We will see it like as a book or as a movie or as a game. Still, we will see Sam & Max Season 4 in future.

  • Finally some optimism. Sam & Max's 30th anniversary is next year, so they have to have something cooking up over there for their birthday. It might not be a new season, but it's gotta be something good!

  • Yes, but Sam & Max haven't been forgotten! And WE WILL see it in future someday.. And it could be a game! and could be a movie too

  • Please TellTale bring Sam and Max back from their grave and resurrect them for a 4th Season!

  • Do you play as Sam and Max in this game?

  • You usually play as Sam, though there's at least one point where you play as Max.

  • Me too i playing this game at my childhood at 4 years :D

  • I hope they do SOMETHING for the Freelance Police.... this year is their 30th anniversary. I don't know about ya'll, but that's a pretty big deal!

  • New comic, tv show, a new game, telltale or not, we need more Sam & Max, this is the year to do it!
