Hideli-hodeli, Sam & Max-arinos!

Mike Stemmle here, writer and co-designer on Episode 304 of Sam & Max, a.k.a. "Beyond the Alley of the Dolls."

As this penultimate episode in our senses-shattering series careens its way through the approval process, getting ever nearer to your grubby little hands, mice, and joysticks, now seems like a good time to open up the thread for "insider" questions of various sorts.

Allow me to prime the pump with some tantalizing tidbits of info:

- The identity of this episode's villain is a big mystery.
- A character who hasn't been seen this season will return.
- Horrible things will be done to the Delorean. I mean the DeSoto. Dang, that's gonna cause problems, isn't it?
- Mr. Norrington will reveal himself.
- Stinky's "Mr. S" will make himself known.
- Grandpa Stinky will experience a great deal of joy.
- This episode features an exceptionally lame gag that I've been waiting nearly two freaking decades to make.

Oh, and we get to read everyone's mind.

    That's a mystery. THE mystery. Why Sam? What's so special about him? And why the form-fitting shorts?

  • Two words: Flint Paper.

    Will he feature in this episode? And, if so, to what degree?

    @Soracha said: Will we have all the psychic powers at once in this or the next episode?

    You will have most of the psychic powers for most of the episode (though the emphasis will be placed on mind-reading, since that's the one we're adding).

    Next episode, I dunno. I heard that's mostly gonna be Sam and Max sitting around playing board games...

    Flint makes an appearance. He's still working HIS case.

    Sweet! There wasn't enough of that in 301. :D

    Questions:
    @tabstis said: 1. Will we visit some brand new locations in this episode?
    2 and a half new locations, plus one that's been utterly redressed for the occasion.
    2. Is the main villian the one controlling the Sam clones or (as I've speculated), are they actually on Sam and Max's side?
    Anyone who whips up a metric buttload of mostly-naked Sams has got to be up to no good, methinks.
    3. Will we finally see Yog-Soggoth summoned?
    Yog-who? Oh, him. Who's to say he hasn't already been summoned?
    4. Is Dr. Norrington Stinky's cell phone?
    Ooh, gross. No.
    5. Will Superball or Mama Bosco return?
    Hard to imagine that they wouldn't show up at some point.

    EDIT: Oh and I'd like to know what you meant last episode when you said: And one guy you think is a villain really isn't (or IS HE???)


    That was Sal. He was in the villain's line-up, but obviously turned out to be less "evil" and more "lovably lunky" (or IS HE???).

    It was in the original draft, but didn't make the final cut. Be patient, though...

  • Hey, thanks for the reply! Also, another more unrelated question; of all of the games/projects that you've worked on, do you have one in particular that you are the most proud of?

    or ARE you???:eek:
