Hi guys and gals,

just wanted to give you some feedback on your work.
Thank you for 5 (till now) entertaining SamnMax episodes, I enjoyed playing all of them! I wonder who gets the job of developing the dialogues.. Marvelous work, guys! :p
One thing to improve on in my eyes is the scenes and characters in the episodes. One cool thing in "Hit the road" was Sam and Max traveling all different spots and meeting a great variety of characters. Unfortunately you don't find that in the episodes anymore. I wouldn't mind if you took some more time to work on them to create more and cooler scenes for the already hilarious conversations of the duo! That would definitely make me buy the 2nd Season Set, too!
Other than that: Keep up the good work and smokin' that stuff you got! ;)

Cheers,

Yeti

    That would be Brendan Q. Ferguson (all eps.), Dave Grossman (all eps.), Jeff Lester (ep. 3), Chuck Jordan (ep. 4 I believe). :) I can't remember if there are any more.

  • Try to think of Season 1 as a single game just cut up into smaller chunks. So far you've been to what was it an old abandoned theater, a tv studio, a playland and casino/stuffed animal factory, the white house, a virtual world, and now the moon! That's not enough variety for you?

  • A trip to the sun is the variety i want! :)

  • if they had gone to the sun, I hope they have super strong sun block :)
    It was nice to see that my thought that space would come next came true.

  • By the by, I wouldn't mind Season 2 going for an episode every 2 months, so that they can be made just a little longer.

    I feel to have spent too much playing time at Sam and Max's office, Sybil's and Bosco's Inconvenience to make my point clearer. The virtual world of the recent episode just put those scenes into a different design (I DO recognize the work involved, though!).

  • To me the problem really is that the other characters aren't really that interesting or funny, or else they stop being funny fairly quick. Bosco, for instance, has gone from pretty funny to grating over the season, and while I loved Hugh Bliss first time we saw him, his alter-ego in Reality 2.0 just annoyed me, I couldn't even remember why I ever thought he was funny. The only good thing about that encounter was Max, and that's the problem... none of these characters are funny except for the way Sam & Max react to them.

    Maybe that's just the way Sam & Max is, but if so, I hope they focus on more character variety in season 2 so it's not that noticable. I'd prefer that over a variety in locations myself, if they'd have to choose.


    Disclaimer: I do love the Sam & Max episodes, don't get me wrong! This is one of the few gripes I actually have with these games, otherwise they're fantastic!

    I agree with that.. it would give the development team a little more time for the episodes.. 4-5 hour game every 2 months would still be awesome.

    So let's say, theoretically, you get your 4-5 hour game. Will you then push for 8-10 hours in the (theoretical) season 3. Then more and more until we're back to the traditional game development cycle and Telltale's business model has just flown the coop.

    I like 'em the way they are. :)
