Steve Purcell’s demen ted cretaions Sam and Max haven’t appeared in a comic book in eons, but they retain a loyal following. Telltale Games is preveiwing their new Sam & Max video game Culture Shock with a downloadable demo (only for you stinking PC users, damn your eyes) and more goodies.
CBR has more on the game and Purcell:
Sam & Max creator 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, says: “Telltale’s Sam & Max makes me as giddy as a hobo in a transcontinental boxcar full of ham hocks!” Culture Shock has already received extremely positive reviews from mainstream and specialized press alike. 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.”
