Sam & Max Save the World Remastered

Skunkape Games has announced Sam & Max Save the World Remastered for Switch and PC (Steam, GOG). It will launch on December 2 for $19.99. Users who own the original release on Steam, GOG, or the Telltale Store can get the remaster for $9.99 through December 3. The game supports English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Polish, Hungarian, Czech, and Russian voice-over and subtitle options.

Judging by the official website, remastered versions of Sam & Max: Beyond Time and Space and Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse are also planned.

Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:

Sam is a six-foot canine detective with a love of justice. Max is a hyperkinetic rabbity-thing with a taste for mayhem. Together, they’re the Freelance Police. And they’re about to save the world.

Good to have you back, little buddy!

In 2006, the comic book crime-fighting duo Sam and Max starred in the first full-fledged episodic game from Telltale, the studio that went on to make The Walking Dead and Batman: The Enemy Within.

Now everyone’s favorite dog and rabbity-thing are back in Sam & Max Save the World Remastered, a new version of their first season of episodic games that has been lovingly updated by a small group of the original developers with the blessing of Sam & Max creator Steve Purcell.

Return to the adventure game that was once called “gaming’s first sitcom” and is today known as “the remaster you didn’t know you were waiting for.” With enhanced graphics, new widescreen and gamepad support, five new musical tracks, and the same brain-tickling puzzles and offbeat humor that won it IGN’s Best Adventure Game of the Year award back in the day, Sam & Max Save the World Remastered is a modern classic that you’ll love to play—or play again.

Now, let’s go save the world…

It’s just another day at the office for the self-proclaimed Freelance Police when the Commissioner calls in with a disturbing report: former child stars are running amok in the street! What starts as an open-and-shut case of idiotic vandalism balloons into an all-out conspiracy as Sam and Max encounter one miscreant after another who have been mysteriously hypnotized. (You can tell from the “spinny thing” they do with their eyes.)

Who’s the source of this malfeasance, and what is their dastardly plan? Cracking this case will require Sam’s nose for detective work, Max’s lack of conscience, an assortment of inventory items, and a little help from neighbors Sybil Pandemik, Bosco, and Jimmy Two-Teeth. From Sam & Max’s street to the White House lawn, inside the internet, and all the way to the moon, this baffling mystery gets weirder and funnier as it unfolds.
