Hideli-hodeli, Sam & Max-arinos!

Mike Stemmle here, writer and co-designer on Episode 304 of Sam & Max, a.k.a. "Beyond the Alley of the Dolls."

As this penultimate episode in our senses-shattering series careens its way through the approval process, getting ever nearer to your grubby little hands, mice, and joysticks, now seems like a good time to open up the thread for "insider" questions of various sorts.

Allow me to prime the pump with some tantalizing tidbits of info:

- The identity of this episode's villain is a big mystery.
- A character who hasn't been seen this season will return.
- Horrible things will be done to the Delorean. I mean the DeSoto. Dang, that's gonna cause problems, isn't it?
- Mr. Norrington will reveal himself.
- Stinky's "Mr. S" will make himself known.
- Grandpa Stinky will experience a great deal of joy.
- This episode features an exceptionally lame gag that I've been waiting nearly two freaking decades to make.

Oh, and we get to read everyone's mind.

    That's a very good question. It's answered after the first act.

    I get the feeling that like in the last episode, the screenshots are all from the first act spent in stinky's diner and the remaining acts will be completely different.

    I need a high res version of that. Seriously.
    I'd like this too :cool:
  • I'm hoping we'll see some screenshots posted in the blog along with an announcement of release date within the week. Feels like that kind of time.
  • I thought it the first way at first, but then I realised it was probably more lines for when Sam picks things up

    Adding entirely new characters in the fourth act of a five act story would be dirty pool, imho.

    That being said, there's a couple of new faces kicking around in this episode, you betcha. Or, more like a face-and-a-half, or a face-and-a-quarter, depending on how you're counting.
