Sam & Max Special Edition?

posted by TrevAndHisDaddy on - last edited - Viewed by 334 users

As we know, the Tales of Monkey Island was a remake of the original game "The Secret of Monkey Island", and they made a Special Edition of the game with enhanced graphics and voices from the Cast Of "Tales of Monkey Island". Sam & Max had an original game, should Telltale make a remake Sam & Max like they did with Monkey Island? But the important question is, if they do, how should they do it?

  • Tales wasn't a remake - it was a sequel (just like the other three sequels made in the 90s) The voice cast in Tales (Guybrush, Murray, LeChuck, Elaine) was the same voices as in the special edition of Secret because they are the same actors who provided the voices in Curse and Escape as well :) [1]

    A special edition of Sam & Max Hit the Road may be nice, but I reckon the original voice soundtrack is fine as is, there'd be no need to replace it. Maybe re-record the music and fancy up the graphics, but that'd be it.

    Of course, LucasArts (and presumably Steve Purcell) may have to reach an agreement to do this, and make sure it's financially profitable for them.


    [1] I believe the voice actor for Elaine wasn't the same for Curse & Escape but I can't quite remember those details.

  • Tales wasn't a remake, and LucasArts developed the Monkey Island Special Editions, not Telltale.

    A remake of Hit the Road would be nice, although there's too much legal red tape surrounding the game (not to mention LucasArts isn't interested in adventure games anymore). If it did happen, though, it wouldn't need new voice acting, since unlike Monkey Island it had voice acting to begin with. Just clean up the old tracks.

    Thank you for the information. However, LucasArts made Sam & Max Hit the Road also, so the chances of a remake of it are quite a bit.

  • Yes but LucasArts no longer own the characters their license ran out, Steve owns them and they'd have to get licensing from him to release the game remade or otherwise.

  • Use SCUMMVM, for instructions use youtube.com, you can play all off those awesome Lucas Arts games on your newer operating systems. Speaking of awesome games, im about minutes away from beating the Dig. For advance PC users, there are ways to get it all free, for basic users all you need is your older game copys. Hope this was helpful to all fans of the Legendary Lucas Art Classic Adventure games.
