Even multimedia evil-slappers like Sam & Max could use a hand, and this time they’re using the incomprehensible magic of virtual reality to invite the player into their off-kilter world for a furious day of monster-slaying, obstacle courses, responsibly discharged firearms, and, of course, saving the entire freaking world.
“HappyGiant has assembled an all-star team of LucasArts veterans, and created a game dripping with nostalgia, as well as being on the cutting edge of VR Gaming”, said Nick Alfieri, CEO of Big Sugar. “Whether you are an old school Sam & Max fan, or new to the franchise, this game has something for everyone.”
HappyGiant’s team includes Steve Purcell, the creator of Sam & Max, who is consulting on the game design, art, and story. In addition, other team members include renowned concept artist Peter Chan and writer/designer Mike Stemmle, both of whom held lead roles on LucasArts 1992’s Hit the Road. Julian Kwasneski and Jared Emerson-Johnson of Bay Area Sound, who worked on the Telltale series, are also on board. David Nowlin and Dave Boat are returning to voice Sam and Max.
