Steve Purcell’s wise-cracking anthropomorphic crime-fighting duo Sam & Max shall be making their long-awaited return to the world of video video video video video video games in Sam & Max: This Time It’s Virtual, a new VR journey from developer HappyGiant.
There’s not, admittedly, a whole lot additional to report merely nonetheless, nonetheless it has been over a decade provided that launch of the canine and homicidal bunny’s closing video game outing – Telltale Games’ Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse – so even this teeniest morsel of tales is additional additional inclined to carry a tear to the eyes of followers patiently ready the return of Purcell’s Freelance Police.
The brief teaser trailer accompanying proper now’s knowledge tells us, ‘In a world gone unusual, one elite pressure stands in course of the darkness’, earlier than reintroducing Sam & Max by the use of a gunfight in course of what I’m solely tentatively going to name an octo-hydra.
It sounds to my ears like David Nowlin and William Kasten, who carried out Sam and Max respectively in the Telltale Games, are reprising their roles for This Time It’s Virtual, nonetheless that hasn’t been formally confirmed, so do not quote me on that.
There’s no phrase on platforms or a launch date for Sam & Max: This Time It’s Virtual at current, nonetheless HappyGiant says to ‘defend tuned for added knowledge’.
