Steve Purcell makes new Sam & Max art as quietly as possible 08 Apr, 2023 / 1 comment

Because he likes breaking my heart, Steve Purcell’s official Sam & Max presence these days remains…a Facebook page. Though he often uses it to re-run vintage Sam & Max art, he’ll occasionally slip in a new piece.

Trouble is, you pretty much have to be as diligent as to notice such things in a timely manner, and who could be expected to be their equal? So if you keep up with them (as you should), you already know that Purcell rang in the new year with this gem:

Hey, why not? With the as-of-yet-undated release of The Devil’s Playhouse Remastered due out sometime this year, it will indeed be a noteworthy year for Max. It’s also the 30th anniversary of Sam & Max Hit the Road, so maybe someone out there should get cracking on the retrospective? We did ours 15 years in, so now it’s your turn. We’ll even host it for you.

Update: It's been brought to my attention that the Twitter account does a reliable job of posting any new art that Purcell puts out, so you may want to be keeping tabs on that as well.

    What with Sea of Stars nixed as a GOG release for now, The Devil's Playhouse Remastered could indeed become my game of the year 2023 and the soundtrack will probably finally be available on bandcamp. This marks the end of an era, which is sad, but on the other hand, nobody would have thought that this could even happen: these games will be polished AF and that brings them to a new generation of gamers.

    Season 4 ... well. How great would that be? It's not going to happen, since Neo-Telltale seems to be thinking more along Bruner lines when it comes to licensing IPs. But I'm so happy that Steve still thinks of these guys in some form or other. I just wish Max would have jumped into the new year as an ink and acrylic iteration.
