Life-sized Sam & Max costume frightens children 29 Jul, 2007, 22:21 / 10 comments

But the fact that these children were Comic-Con attendees makes it OK, since that's pretty much the kind of thing you'd expect. Telltale wrote all about their world-shaking excursion to this year's convention, including lots of amusing anecdotes and photos, and even a new render and some concept art for Sam & Max: Season 2. Steve Purcell won a much deserved Eisner Award for the Sam & Max web comic, and yes, a human being was convinced to don the giant Sam & Max costume, which ranks only behind this in ill-conceived geek dedication.

In the midst of it all, Telltale somehow managed to honor its scheduled engagement to appear in the Episodic Gaming panel with fellow episodic developer Hot Head Games (Penny Arcade Adventures), which was moderated by Shacknews editor-in-chief and friend of Mojo Chris Remo. You should show off your intelligence by reading this recap of the panel by the folks at TenTonHammer.

    in one of the renders, Sam and Max are sure cluttering their office with stuff from the past season....

    There's a nice reflection effect on the office TV screen in the new render if my eyes aren't deceiving me. Of course, dynamic shadows are there too and have been since the Out from Boneviller trailer, but it's a cool touch whether it's in the game or not.

    ...and the hottie in the photo (not the hairy one in the middle).

    I've got one of those two. Can you guess which? (hint - look to the picture on the right)

    Season two has SEA MONKEYS!

    Monkeys in an adventure game? It'll never work!

    I also see a disembodied (disemskeletonised?) skull in the concept art. Hmmmmmm...

    I'm trying to think of a funny thing to say to this, including something about striding or rolling, but I'm stumped.

    I'm just lazy, so I'll say this: Me too.
