Sam and Max are coming to wreck VR in This Time It's Virtual


You wait years for a new Sam and Max game...

It's been a pretty wild week for fans of Steve Purcell's iconic comic-book characters Sam and Max. Not only did we receive news of a series of upcoming remasters for the duo's Telltale adventures, but now the freelance police are getting set to take their crime-fightin' ways to the untapped realm of virtual reality.

As revealed by developer HappyGiant, Sam and Max: This Time It's Virtual will see the player recruited to work alongside our favorite dog and rabbity-type thing investigation team. After being put through a series of training courses to ascertain that they have said skills to pay the bills, the player will be dispatched to Sam and Max's neighborhood, on a mission to root out evil and loose change.

Sam and Max: This Time It's Virtual's development team is made up of a party of franchise veterans, including team members from both the Telltale Games series, as well as the classic 1993 Lucasarts adventure Sam and Max Hit the Road. Steve Purcell is, of course, on-hand as a story, design, and writing consultant, ensuring that the duo's personal brand of verbal abuse is in check. You can check out new gameplay footage in the trailer below.

Sam and Max: This Time It's Virtual will launch on unspecified VR platforms in early 2021.
