We’re off again, lil’ buddy

Skunkape Games has announced that it has begun development of Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse Remastered, following on from its previously released remasters of Telltale Games classics Sam & Max Save the World Remastered and Sam & Max: Beyond Time and Space Remastered. This latest retread will launch on unannounced platforms later in 2023.

First released on PC and PS3 way back in 2010, The Devil’s Playhouse was the third of Telltale Games’ Sam & Max adventures, and sees the Freelance Police investigate a series of strange phenomena linked to the powerful psychic machinations of the mysterious “Toys of Power”. The original release of The Devil’s Playhouse sported a fresh new game engine, and allowed the player to take direct control of both Sam and Max independently — allowing for a shakeup of the title’s puzzle elements and adding an extra emphasis on synergy and teamwork between the two characters.

While Skunkape Games has not offered any official information on the new title, we can likely expect The Devil’s Playhouse Remastered to feature updated character models and environmental textures, tauter controls, and slicker U.I. integration. If we’re lucky, we might also see the new release include additional artwork, voicework, and music, as was the case for both Save the World Remastered and Beyond Time and Space Remastered. We’ll be sure to give you a heads-up when more information — including platforms and a release date — is forthcoming.

Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse Remastered is currently in development at Skunkape Games.
