And it’s about time, I say! It seems the 78th Venice International Film Festival will be including Sam & Max: This Time It’s Virtual as part of the VR line-up. The unexpected occasion is being used to unveil Steve Purcell’s majestic cover art for the game:

Thanks, Venice!

Polygon also has a not-too-overwhelming preview of the game.

(And that is all -- short but sweet.)

Well, if they had to recast Mutt, they could have done worse.

Production on Indiana Jones 5 continues to be well-stalked, probably owing to the fact that the location shooting has happened to take place in some fairly public places so far.

It would be exceptionally difficult to hide what the production is doing right now. Shooting is currently taking place on a street in Glasgow that has been extensively converted into New York circa 1969:

Observers have dated the environment based on various context clues amongst the set dressing, positing that the movie will depict the Apollo 11 Ticker Tape Parade. New York is also home to a number of prestigious museums, which wouldn't be altogether radical territory for a tenured professor of archeology.

Whatever brings Indy to the Big Apple, it seems like a reasonable place to set Act I before he gets pulled into the proverbial One Last Adventure. Lao Che rises again It could be anything!

For those who have found the marketing for this game to be a bit evasive, let it be known that the bashfulness is over:

Sam & Max: This Time It's Virtual will be available to Oculus Quest owners today at 1pm EST. For you social media types, HappyGiant will also be doing an "Ask Me Anything" on Reddit at 8pm EST over at /r/SamandMax. While that may sound like no topic is off limits, it is critical to remember that the developers are really only interested in questions about the characters boning each other.

Tomorrow is the day that Sam & Max: This Time It’s Virtual will flow forth from the spigot that is your local Oculus Quest shoppe, and the reviews are starting to trickle in. And get this: they’re rather positive! Check out the raves from The Ghost Howls and Android Central, and learn what those sites are in the process!

I’ve also received word from one of my corporate spies planted in the Mojo front office that someone in our staff of thousands (spanning sixteen physical divisions across four continents) has received a review copy, so our authoritative voice on the matter will be gracing your browser soon as well.

And if that doesn’t leave you enthused, let’s see you maintain that stony demeanor of yours in the face of this moving verse that Mike Stemmle composed for the occasion:

I seem to have somehow overlooked the existence of an entire Amazon platform

As had I, yet exist it does, and we just have to live with that. Prime Gaming, as it is known, is trying to tempt adventure gaming aficionados with The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition. To wit:

You can find the very special edition in the “Games with Prime” section, which apparently is part of regular Prime. I’m pretty sure I read that they will charge more for the fun sometime in the feature. I don’t know; figure it out yourself, if you really need another version of The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition.
