Not an actual movie, but I just got an idea that (at least I thought) was really cool, What if after a few seasons, you guys put together a full leangth game, like about twenty hours of gameplay, sort every once in a while with TV shows you see a few seasons, then a movie, like the X-Files, maybe spend a season building up a story line, and then give the climax in a full length game, called Sam and Max: The Movie, though considering it's a video game, I'm not sure how good a title like "The Movie" would be. but please excuse me, it's 2:00 in the morning and I'm rambling.

  • Errr... I think Telltale likes episodic gameplay and it works best for them and us.

    As for a REAL movie, I think it would be awesome. But the thing with movies (especially animated ones) is that it seems the only studios willing to put them out are ones that want alot of control. Everyone will have there hand in the cookie jar and it might turn out horrible.
    Straight to Video might be better, or even limited release because I can't see a Sam & Max movie being something that'll be huge with the mainstream movie crowd. Studios want the movie to be big so they'll mess around with the material until it's ready for mass consumption.
    I can dream though. We can always pretend the Freelance Police trailer is really a trailer for a movie though! lol

  • i agree with chris but the only animated movie i have ever really liked was akira (brilliant movie intelligent plot) i haven't ever enjoyed any other animated films as the scripts are often awful

    You should watch Howl's Moving Castle, it is amazingly animated with a great plot. :)

    i have also watched spirited away and it was ok but i prefer akira as it was amazing for its time and i prefer the animation style

    Yeah, but it messed up the plot and characters of the book so horribly (should have just called it something else) that I refuse to rewatch it.

    I'd never read the book anyway, so I found it fine. :D

    What the heck would the big movie executives have to do to make Sam and Max appeal to a mainstream crowd? Make Sam the suave hitman with a mysterious past and Max his nerdy but endearing partner?

    Actually, I'd love to watch a movie like that.

    they would have to screw it up completely, and frankly I'd never like to see Sam and Max apeal to a mainstream audience, I feel special being one of the few who actually know Sam and Max, I mean apart from those people who are like "wasn't that a children's show awhile back?"

  • I wouldn't mind other people knowing about it because it's not exactly as if I own the license. It would be entirely up to Steve Purcell. I'm also not saying that I wouldn't like to watch a really awesome, cinematic Sam and Max movie in either two or three dimension. (Although, for the record, an animated, top-of-the-line as in Disney quality, movie would be so kick-ass) I'm just saying that this most likely isn't going to happen and I would take a really crappy inevitably hilarious one over none at all.

    I completely see where you're coming from, though.
