    Many, MANY years ago, a heavyset young game designer found himself trapped in a Marin County jury pool. Being stuck on the wrong side of the 21st century (where all the various iWhatnots we take for granted reside), and not having the foresight to bring a few comic books with him, this poor schmoe was compelled to entertain himself for several hours with naught but a spiral notebook, a stubby pencil and his own meager imagination.

    So he wrote a song.

    And not just any song, but a song he hoped would become the theme song to the game he was currently co-designing. A song that would encapsulate the trials and tribulations of that game in one fantastical, James Bondian musical package.

    When he returned to work the next day, he sang his song for his co-designers. They looked at him funny. One suggested that it must've been really hot in that jury pool room. Another opined that maybe he needed a rest. A third gently suggested leaving the music writing to the composers.

    And so it came to pass that the Love Theme from Sam and Max Hit the Road was shelved. Until today.

    Or maybe that's all a lie. Writers lie.

    Any questions?

    The Sam & Max content in Poker Night is a crazy treasure trove of material which never quite bubbled above the surface until now. It's the best.
