Season 3 may have been the last

Well correct me if I'm wrong... but I fear that Season 3 may well have been the last Sam & Max season, and a Season 4 isn't being planned. :( Well how else can we explain the sudden appearance of all the living characters in the finale?! And I'm taking into account the fact that it was made a few years after S2 - maybe it was a comeback special or something! Your thoughts?

    Considering your user name, even you could have spelled "handsome" right! ;)


    ...errrrr, was there ever an explanation why "Sammun-Mak" was actually called "Sammun-Mak"?!

  • Because it sounds similar to Sam and Max?

    The similarity is exactly the thing I want an explanation for! :D

  • I like to assume Sammun-Mak was a distant ancestor of Mack Salmon. Somehow.

  • @wellgolly said: Telltale wise, however, that ending seemed pretty...final, yeah. I doubt they were thinking "well that's that. Let's never do this again", but you definitely get the sense they were intending to put some closure there, at least for a good while.
    Did telltale get the deal with universal before or after then?

    The end of Season 3 has nothing to do with the Universal deal. The way 305 was written it felt like it was bringing together years of Sam & Max content, so we wanted the ending to feel like that as well. That's not to prevent a hypothetical episode 401 from just throwing a bucket of mud all over that ending and rolling on like nothing happened. That's part of why Sam & Max is good.

  • Say, are you guys planning on releasing The Penal Zone on XBLA?

    Yes. That is why it felt like a true end in the Telltale series, if not a finale for all the game series as a whole, including Hit the Road.

    Like I said way before in my review of Season 3 in the form of a forum post, I said I'd be satisfied if The Devil's Playhouse is the end. It wraps everything up so well, has that form of a "reset ending" that surprisingly doesn't feel like betraying you for your loyalty as a fan but instead sets the tone for the whole events that have happened up until that point in true Sam and Max fashion, and it's simply very very good. I feel like Season 3 finale rewarded my long dedication and bonding to the entire franchise.

    It doesn't mean I wouldn't be happy for a Season 4, I mean I would most certainly be. Just that I think everyone should be aware you people have set a bar so high that will take quite a time in development to create something that will carry it even much higher -if you guys ever want to carry the joy & burden to do it again. In any case, I'm good.

  • Does that mean there could be a Season 5, instead of a Season 4??
