...because here are three never before-heard-tracks from the new Sam & Max game that will allow you to do just that!
Well, okay, they're not exactly never-before-heard. If you've been to our MySpace page, you've already heard the office theme. And if you're one of the lucky people who's tested the game in our office or over at GameTap, you've probably heard the other two as well. And of course, if you're Jared Emerson-Johnson, the composer, or one of the fine folks who work with him at Bay Area Sound, or you're somehow involved with studio.jory.org where the tracks were recorded, or you're one of the jazz musicians who played on the tracks, then yeah, you've heard them already. But for everyone else in the world, these are brand spanking new. Woo!
these are brilliant! I think it kicks ass over the bone soundtrack..but maybe thats just my love of jazz..

Great work. I'm salivating even more in anticipation of next Tuesday, knowing that I can hear such great works in context of strolling around with Sam and Max again. I'm also worried that there won't be as many free samples to follow and I may be so easily coerced into purchasing soundtrack volumes... Should I surrender now and beg you for pre-orders? ;-) At least Tuesday I'll get something in the way of a quick fix...
I take off my hat before the musicians!

This sounds great! If the rest of the game is as sound and professional as the music, then this will be one game I'll recommend to everyone I know.
I'd love to see Sam & Max back on track. They are the best. I love you Telltale.

What really amazes me is how much some of this sounds like DAY OF THE TENTACLE music. This is really getting back to the classic LucasArts era of gaming in so many ways.
I want to get my hands on that soda poppers theme they use in the intro/outro of Culture shock.
not only good music, but hillarious as well ^^ just like the game

Wow, awesome tracks. They really set the mood to the game. I wish one of these was my own personal theme song.

Aw, no worries Trixxi, you'll figure it out. This episode only took me about 1 or 2 hours to complete, it's not all that hard. I agree with all the other comments. The music and graphics are outstanding! I've already played and beat it again like 4 times in a pathetic attempt to satisfy my hunger for the next episode. Lol. Not only are the music and graphics great, I think that the way the game is presented is brilliant. Having it split into episodes of a season so it feels like a TV show, with a self-contained story in each episode and one full story that runs through the season is brilliant. And the topping on the cake for me is that I grew up a Sam & Max fan. I played Sam & Max Hit The Road from 1993 and watched the TV show. With such fond memories of playing the 1993 game, I was in utter shock and amazement to see Sam and Max moving around on my screen in full 3D in 3D environments, voices now given to them. This is the kind of stuff I love and expect to see in games. Way to go, Tell Tale. Keep up the good work with Sam & Max, a very good step in the right direction for Sam & Max! "Holy mackarel slicked with butter in a burning frying pan, lil buddy! Tell Tale is doing a good job on our game!"
