I think that the stand alone puzzle games belong on gametap or popcap games or some other kind of gimmicky website, but as a standard for gaming.

I feel like this is a step backwards not forwards.

My regret is that it's not Sam and Max who are bad ideas they just seem to have bad luck.

    I think you are having a bit of a confusion here -
    while popcap does make only casual games - gametap releases through their service real games (from real developers!)

    as well dont mix up between episodic gaming an casual gaming - while bone and sam&max are episodic - the last thing you can say about them is that they are the same as bejeweled.

    and i do not understand the connection between sam&max and bad luck. :p

    ?????????? What are you talking about? You need to wait and play the game before you can say it's a stand alone puzzle. Besides, it's an Adventure Game. :-/

    Avid, I have two ask what are you talking about and do you have any idea what an adventure game is? Even a short episodic one is nothing like a "stand alone puzzle game" belonging on a "gimicky website."

  • Maybe he's referring to the Telltale Arcade section of this site?

    Telltale Arcade is a bit confusing to someone coming here for the first time and thinking they're Telltale created and that the forthcoming Telltale games might be of a similar style / standard.

    There will be an influx of traffic given all the publicity of Sam & Max recently, many having never experienced an adventure game before. Does there really need to be a Bejeweled clone highlighted on the home page?

    I do realise this may have no relationship to the point Avid Veiwer was trying to make, but it's something I've wanted to get off my chest for a while. :p

  • Turn Sam & Max into a Bejewelled clone... you guys are brilliant! We'll scrap the very entertaining story-driven Episode 1 we've been working on and get on that right away. Might delay the game a few months but I'm sure no one will mind.

    :D

    I think you mean; "Emily, you ROXOR my SOXORZ." Or something like that.

  • I wrote that post before my morning coffee. It was a little snarky, even for me. :o
