Bad Brain asking for help

posted by Anonymous on - last edited - Viewed by 1.8K 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.

    no..im sure steve purcell would only deal with a professional business such as telltale games.. if fans actually want to see a good sam and max follow up realised they'd want telltale at the helm so please dont respond to that ridiculous post @ the inventory

  • LucasArts was very professional, too. So has everyone else Purcell has dealt with, probably.

    Maybe Purcell is just cursed. :-/

    He's not being verbally shanked for taking risks, but for generating false hype surrounding his attempts, not to mention manipulating a bunch of optimistic Sam & Max fans.

    Alright. I'll give you that. He should have never mentioned Sam & Max in any form until the final result. But not just because of any NDA. I still have a hard time believing that would be the only reason why LucasArts would pull out. They're way too greedy and/or stubborn for that to be the sole reason. So it would have been better to be completely in the dark about the whole thing, and not be crushed again. Others have their own opinion, but I really don't think it was intentional. It would be the mark of a truly insane person who thinks that crushing people's hopes is a good way to get positive publicity for their company. I think he really believed he had it, and then LucasArts said no. He's definitely guilty of overconfidence.

    However, I'm not going to hate the guy like so many others. I'm a rebel like that. B-) Still, I'll say I understand how everyone feels, and just let it go at that.

    check their homepage about Sam and Max2...
    http://www.bad-brain.com/

    it looks like all they want is to force Steve Purcell to give them the Licence.

    They already have 4 projects started, and it is no EA games... That s enough i think. Odd one of Them is suposedly designed by Monkey 3 director Tiller, i have too much to do to refinish monkey 3 to check but what did he really do in CMI ? I am asking because in movies they would tell you "by the producer of xxxxxx" where in fact the producer did nothing for the movie except giving money.

    The only thing i hope is Sam and Max landing in competant hands and be treated with all due respect for Purcell s work and talent.

    Bill Tiller did the art in CMI, and I believe he was the art director, as Bad-Brain's site claims. I'd be surprised if he wasn't. And A Vampyre Story is being done by Autumn Moon, Bill Tiller's company, not Bad-Brain--BBE is just publishing it.

    Max, the rabbit-y thing, with his oblong head, looks like he was dropped on the head when he was a young bunny-ling, too. :D

    Like Stewie, from Family Guy. But he was jumping on the bed and hit his head on the ceiling.

    But these are just cartoons, or course. Not real. Hehe... Nope... not at all... :-B

    What if, WHAT IF, Lucassfarts decides to go ahead and "change thier mind" about this whole thing, now that they have everyone fighting over it? Of course LA's reluctancy to sell has to show you something. Either LA is the greedy, illigitimate child of an Ewok and Jabba the Hutt, or maybe they are trying to hold on to it for something? But wait, dont they lose the rights anyway? Stupid Bad Brain. Might as well call themselves Retarted Game Co.
