Whoa the game's announced! Starting a new thread here to talk about the trailer and whatever else, since the old one was full of leaks and holes.

Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse

Trailer and stuff on the official site

Here's the official spiel: "The new season Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse is the biggest, strangest and most epic to date. As the saga begins, an otherworldy power for controlling matter and space calls to the strongest and strangest who might wield it - intergalactic warlords and eldritch gods, under-dwellers and scholars of the arcane.

Gaming's greatest dog and rabbit sleuths Sam & Max seek the power's ancient secrets, as Max gains shape shifting, teleportation, mind reading and future vision abilities for battling these foes. The saga plays out in a surreal 5 month-long symphony of mayhem that gets deeper and more twisted with each episode."

So how are you guys doing?

    From the email i recieved, you get the game of course, 1 free episode of your choice, the ability to post in a special thread(speaking of which where is that i checked the link and it directed me to the download page) and discounts all for a while.

  • I'm so excited!!!!! i just gotta get 30 more dollas :) I just hope it runs good on my computer (all of telltales other games do, so im not too worried)

  • My day has been made. Thank you Telltale, I may weep openly.

  • Oh man, I cannot wait for this! I'd pre-order it, but my parents don't like making money transactions on the internet.

    Please, Telltale, please tell us that this game will also be available on WiiWare or Xbox Live Arcade (preferably the latter because my Wii's running out of space) or something like that. Please, with sprinkles, oreos, bits of cookie dough, banana slices, and a cherry on top?

    It's going to be on the PlayStation Network along with PC & Mac to start with. Other platforms are likely, but not on the first go-round. (Like the first 2 seasons of Sam & Max eventually found their way to XBLA and Wii disc).

  • Very pleased to see this coming to PS3/PSN. Great decision. Can't wait to see my favourite charming creatures in 1080p.

    Are there any plans to provide a bonus for PS3 pre-orders? How will those pre-orders work exactly? I may end up double-dipping on this one since I would like to have the game on my MBP when on the go also. Telltale should allow us to purchase for a flat-price and get access to all versions.

  • @StLouisRibs said: BTW, I hope that all the retro posters get printed. I'm looking forward to 'They Stole Max's Brain!'

    Obviously no plans exist yet in the real world, but if we have awesome posters, it's hard to resist printing them up and putting them in the store. We'll see...

    Does this mean that future releases of other series (upcoming and existing) will make it to the PS3 as well? This, coupled with the Monkey Island remakes coming to PS3 made my day. Just need ToMI to come to PSN and the PS3/Mac owner in me will be all kinds of giddy.

    I've been told that PlayStation Network preorders will be $5 off -- $29.95.

    (The deal for PC pre-orders is that you get a free episode, access to the pre-order development forum, and are entered in the drawing for a free Penal Zone poster.)

    The usual Telltale line applies here: We've got nothing announced and no formal plans right now, but our end goal is always to get all of our games on as many platforms as we can, so everyone can play them. So, keep watching the skies. Or the blog.
