The forums are accumulating one in this thread. Join in with any hidden bits and alternate paths you found!

Where can I see art from the game?
The season-wide trailer and stuff is on the official site. You may also want to take a look at the Telltale blog, which includes this interview with Tomb of Sammun-Mak designer Andy Hartzell, as well as some screenshots and concept art!

What is the official marketing spiel for this game? I am dying to know!!!
"In the second episode, The Tomb of Sammun-Mak, the Freelance Police face even more bizarre and dangerous new characters (and some familiar faces). The game's designer calls this episode Sam & Max's "trippiest trip yet", as it features new psychic powers, peculiar foes, a journey on the Disorient Express and an ancient mysterious riddle from across the ages."


So you guys've been playing it, right? What do you think? Let's talk about games!

  • Here's another subtle inside joke I found:

    In Kringle's rant after he gets knocked down by the Sphunx, he ends it with "you blathering blatherskite!" (or "blithering blatherskite"). The phrase "blathering blatherskite" was commonly used in the TV show "DuckTales". Terence McGovern, who voices Kringle (and ad-libbed the scene), also voiced Launchpad McQuack from "DuckTales".

  • I still can't get over my first laugh-out-loud moment in this episode. It's when Sameth does that limerick on the incription ... I'm still rolling on the floor.

  • The Tomb of Sammun-Mak: You'll never cut cucumbers the same way again!

    ...anyhow I won't...

  • Haha, did anyone try talking to Cow-Maximus when Nefertiti first uses the Holstein Hex in the tomb in Reel 2? Hilarious.
