Sam and Max: The Movie

Not an actual movie, but I just got an idea that (at least I thought) was really cool, What if after a few seasons, you guys put together a full leangth game, like about twenty hours of gameplay, sort every once in a while with TV shows you see a few seasons, then a movie, like the X-Files, maybe spend a season building up a story line, and then give the climax in a full length game, called Sam and Max: The Movie, though considering it's a video game, I'm not sure how good a title like "The Movie" would be. but please excuse me, it's 2:00 in the morning and I'm rambling.

I'm also not saying that I wouldn't like to watch a really awesome, cinematic Sam and Max movie in either two or three dimension. (Although, for the record, an animated, top-of-the-line as in Disney quality, movie would be so kick-ass) I'm just saying that this most likely isn't going to happen and I would take a really crappy inevitably hilarious one over none at all.

    I completely see where you're coming from, though.

    Don't get me wrong, I'd love it if it happened, but I like the feeling of being in on something that noone else knows about, of course telltale bringing max out to the world. My problem with the animated series was that it didn't capture the look of the comics, if I get a new Sam and Max, I mean in the animated variety, I want it to look gritty, like an old detective film, have the color schemes and the style to look just alittle overly dramatic as compared to what's going on in the story.

    I would also love a full have hour show done with Telltales animation, I think that would be cool, even if it was like an episode once a month to corrispond with the games, I love the Machinema, but a full half hour would be even cooler.

  • @patters said: i agree with chris but the only animated movie i have ever really liked was akira (brilliant movie intelligent plot) i haven't ever enjoyed any other animated films as the scripts are often awful

    then i suggest u check out the movie "MindGame" by Studio 4 C

    it's got everything... i'll just say that now.

    ummm or go the route jhonen vasquez did with invader zim
    and push it to the limits.. without going full on ren & stimpy crude.

    or maybe screw it all together and go ren & stimpy crude. har ahr har

    I agree with you there, I really wish they had the actual feel for the world down, but then again I just enjoyed it because it was so insanely incomprehensible.

    I can't be the only one who doesn't think they did that already? Since the episodes themselves were so short, if you blinked you would miss half the plot but there were some memorable lines. I'm sure that in the Aiiiee Robot (or something like that) episode Sam makes a comment about a giant nipple and there's a real, real subtle joke about dreams...the kind of dreams that I'd really rather not explain.

    Also, was the "Do Not Open Until X-Mas" joke in Christmas, Bloody Christmas really going for what I thought it was?

  • I don't think that a movie would be a good idea because Sam and Max is a great computer game, so making a movie whick you can't interact with would just destroy the Sam and Max feel.

  • So the comics destroy the "Sam & Max feel"?

    Can't really interact with comics can you? PAGE TURNING ACTION! :p

  • It seems strange that someone would think games based on Sam and Max could have more of a Sam and Max feel than the original comics they're actually based on.

  • They tend to make horrible video game movies (house of the dead) but if the writers of the game worked on the movie it could be the best thing these eyes could ever see. Plus I have always wondered how they met.

    in a way it wouldn't be a video game conversion as it is actually a comic book translation
