Sam and Max Save the World Remastered hits PC and Switch in December

You crack me up, lil’ buddy…

Telltale Games’ 2006 point-and-click adventure Sam and Max Save the World is to receive a remastered re-release, courtesy of indie outfit Skunkape Games. The episodic adventure will launch December 2 on PC and Nintendo Switch priced at around $20, with a 50% discount for players who own the original release.

The first of what would go on to be a huge catalog of graphic adventures for Telltale Games, Sam and Max Save the World sees everyone’s favorite Freelance Police take to the streets in order to solve an increasingly bizarre series of Earth-shaking events, taking the intrepid duo across America, inside the internet, and to the moon and back like Savage Garden.

Sam and Max Save the World Remastered features enhanced widescreen visuals, support for modern controllers, and an expanded soundtrack. Many members of the original title’s development team are on-board for the remaster, which has the blessing of Sam and Max creator Steve Purcell. A new website appears to hint that follow up releases Beyond Time and Space and The Devil’s Playhouse are also in-line for a facelift in the near future.
