Bad Brain asking for help

posted by Anonymous on - last edited - Viewed by 1.1K users

I just got an email from theinventory.org asking fans of Sam and Max to help Bad Brain aquire the rights of the duo. It all seems pretty pathetic.

    I believe they said at one point that they wanted to open negotiations with Purcell once LucasArts lost the license in May...? This whole three ring circus may have changed their minds, though, and I could see why it would--I'm getting sick and tired of all this myself. Still, if it came down to either Bad-Brain or TellTale getting the license...my vote goes with TellTale. I trust Bad-Brain about as far as I can throw 'em.

    EDIT: Whoops, JP already answered that point. Hooray for crossing posts.

    The Telltale guys.. i think about 90% worked on sam and max freelance police, which was looking awesome..they deserve to be given the chance to complete a sam and max game that everyone wants..

    as for bad brain..if steve purcell gave the people that came up with the idea of "the orgastic four" sam and max i'd probably have to kill myself

    I've remained highly optomistic until now; but this is pretty pathetic. While I think they should be commended for trying their response to not getting seems kind of whiny.

  • Unprofessional? Maybe. I can see how it looks like that, and although I posted on the Inventory forum for Steve Purcell to sell the future S&M rights to Bad Brain, ultimately I guess I don't really care who gets the license for Sam & Max, as long as it's done well and is taken to completion. I'd like to see the original team members (i.e. Telltale) start a new S&M game. I'm sure they would deliver beyond all expectations. :) And if Bad Brain got the license, well, I think they'd be smart enough to get Telltale to develop it. At least, I hope so. Apparently, I've been wrong before. Still, I have no more faith in one company over the other. So far, neither of the companies has produced anything (although Telltale is close). But I like both of them, because God bless them, they're making adventure games. Or at least trying. And I'll probably buy every last freakin' game either of them makes.

    Except Quizzoid.

    I know a lot of people will disagree with me, but I don't blame Wolfgang for LucasArts being such dickweeds. If Wolfgang should be attacked by a gang of wolves, we all should. I think most of us sent complaints and hatemail to LucasArts when we heard they cancelled Sam & Max, and we were all ultimately ignored and denied, just like Wolfgang and all of his bling bling. If they won't listen to the teeming masses, then there's no hope that they'd listen to a German with money coming out of his wazoo. I mean, who would have thought that LEC would say no to a pile of money? No one, that's who.

    Now excuse me while I go fill LucasArts inbox with goat porn.

    The thing is Telltale has a team with an actual history, a lot of it adventure related, some of it even Sam & Max 2 related.

    Who is to say he's not exaggerating about negotaitions. He might have called the President of LucasArts at his/her home in the middle of the night speaking in German, and have been welcomed by a warm "PISS OFF". Right then and there LucasArts are withdrawing out of negotiations.

    Yeah, I realize that. So with that in mind, I probably favor Telltale for Sam & Max.

    Still, Bad Brain is just a publisher at the moment. They're tinkering around with some of their intellectual property, so it wouldn't be beyond the realm of possibility that they have someone else develop Sam & Max. And Telltale does have S&M* experience, making them the best choice to make a deal with.





    *That is, S&M as in Sam & Max. Not whips and chains hanky-panky. Who knows what REALLY goes in that infamous closet?

    He's German. Not stupid.


    Edit: (to cover my ass)
    But it's possible. He could be a nincompoop. I don't think so though. I think he's just a risk-taker. A lot of people take risks, but they don't necessarily get verbally shanked by the online community if their plans fall through. Once, I told a friend I'd eat a ham sandwich for lunch. But the place where I was eating didn't have any ham. When I told my friend, I never heard the end of it. Also, I just made all of that up. There was no ham sandwich.
