The developer of the new [i]Sam and Max[/i] games, Telltale Games, has announced that it has started carrying it's first chapter of the revamped version of [i]Sam and Max[/i] titled [i]Culture Shock[/i] on it's website. The game is not only for sale, but there is also a trial demo available for potential customers to download. Two members of the development team from Telltame Games have this to say:
First the words come from the creator of [i]Sam and Max[/i] Steve Purcell says, "It's clear from this first episode that the Telltale crew has a great handle on what a Sam & Max game should be. Creating an engaging, funny, and yummy-looking series while indulging my goofy whims every step of the way is a Herculean task. And the episodic approach to Sam & Max is working as well as I had hoped. I'm a happy little spud!"
Mike Stemmle, a driving force behind 1993's trailblazing Sam & Max: Hit the Road game, offered the words that: "Telltale's Sam & Max makes me as giddy as a hobo in a transcontinental boxcar full of ham hocks!"
The mainstream media and the gaming media also had good things to say. Want to hear? Then just take a look: The New York Times reports, "With sardonic humor, a cool jazz score and engaging 3D graphics, Culture Shock has even more style and wit than the original game." IGN.com has awarded Culture Shock its esteemed Editors' Choice distinction and writes that it is sure to please fans of humor, fans of adventure games and the legion of Sam & Max devotees who have been waiting like demented lagomorphs for a
return of the deranged duo."
Took the words right out of my mouth, guys.
