Introduction

So what is Sam & Max all about?

They are vigilante private investigators who have named themselves the "Freelance Police." The games are cartoony, humorous and the voice acting is top notch. Originally they started out as a comic book series but in 1992 a graphic adventure game was produced by LucasArts. In 2002 LucasArts started to develop a sequel which was then cancelled in 2004 without any prior reasons. The decision to cancel the sequel lead to the head developers leaving LucasArts to form the company TellTale Games, taking the Sam & Max franchise with them. Three seasons of graphic adventure games were made before they decided to take their direction away from being a "mini-LucasArts."

Oh yes, Sam is a dog and Max is a Rabbit.

So what's this LP all about?

They'll be solo video commentary. While many adventure games are suited more towards screen shot LP's, I feel that Sam & Max offers a lot more in video format. The voice acting is top notch and there's a lot of slapstick action that just adds even more levels to the games.

I'll be starting out with the 1993 LucasArts release "Sam & Max Hit The Road" which plays similarly to other classic adventure games made by the company at the time. The TellTale seasons are your somewhat standard TellTale Tool controls, they are compromised of three seasons in episodic format.
