Hey all,
From the game reviewers and gaming magazine editors I've talked to, it seems like lucasarts has been ultra hush hush about why the game was cancelled. It is notable that simon jeffery's who was really behind the project when it started in 2002 was replaced by Mike Nelson, the now infamous target of the fan's Ire.
Anyone have more info?

I've talked some die hard fans that think it's just a market ploy, but I don't think that's the case. Clearly, management at lucasarts has issues.

they said it "wasn't the right time for an adventure game"

that means they think it wouldnt make a lot of money



THATS the reason

See Adventure Gamers for the reason why they did it. The game got to the stage where they take it to the marketing machine, and the ignoramus running it said, "Hold it! This will never sell." and canned it.

I have faith though that the game WILL come back. If we make enough noise, they'll listen, sit up, and realise, "Hey. People actually will buy this game."

Petition's up over 16000 and preorders are picking up some steam (15th ranked on Amazon.de's site from 6th this morning) due to a lot of german fans.

If it's money they're worried about, I think all the responses will eventually have an effect. Then, I can get on with playing the game instead of trolling the boards looking for news about the game.

if you make a statement you should always back it up, did lucasarts actually back up the whole "Its not the right time"thing with figures because to come to this decision surely they would have researched the interest and market for it before deciding that there wouldn't be a market? I'm not sure anyone know if they did release some kind of facts to go with it?:confused:

Well, it's just a fact of life that the Star Wars games are selling like crazy and great adventure games are receiving a lukewarm reception. Although, when was the last time an adventure game had generated as much buzz as Freelance Police? I read that the petition to save Obi-Wan (the really awful xbox title) had little more than 7000 sigs before lucasarts did an about face and rushed it onto the xbox. Oh the humanity!

LUCASARTS TO DEPLOY MERCENARIES™
LONDON, U.K. – March 15, 2004 – LucasArts officially announced today that it will deploy Mercenaries, an open-ended third person combat-action game this fall for the PlayStation2 computer entertainment system and the Xbox video game system from Microsoft. Set in North Korea where a coup has plunged the troubled nation into chaos, an elite private military company has dispatched a lone mercenary to track down 52 fugitive members of the old hardliner regime --- before they can launch a nuclear attack.

They won't know how it will go if they don't at least give more thought into it ask around and see how people find it. :rifle1: :evanpiel:

I say Lucas Arts should do some more market research to find out how many people still like adventure games. I think they'll be suprised that many people are looking for this type of game again, because everything is getting a little stale.

The true test of market research would just be to release the sonofabitch and find out how well Sam and Max will actually do on the market. When a game is this anticipated, you can't go wrong. (well you can... *cough* enter the matrix)

The fact is that adventure games sell as well as they always have, if not better. It's just that now that there are so many people in the market for computer games (compared to the 'hayday of adventure gaming' in the early 90s), that the masses buy into FPS' and other action oriented games making it look more desirable for developers.

In other words, a game released today would make as much money as it did then if not more, but compared to FPSes etc, it doesn't make much at all. So what? Does everything have to be about making the most possible money? What if restaurants only served steak and lobster?

I am extremely disappointed in LucasArts for dropping this because they won't make 'enough' money. And Grim Fandango 2. And, damn it, where's my sequel to Day of the Tentacle?!?!

End rant.

JBlink
03-18-2004, 10:02 PM
What if they are waiting for competition? There are no charecters like Sam and Max in the gaming area and promoting a charecter is harder when there is no one to contrast them to. If Sam and Max and lets say, Demonic Lobster both had similar games coming out at the same time people would choose sides and debate which is better. That would provoke curiosity in people that normally would not talk about an adventure game.

But whatever, I still think those MMrpgs are to blame.

That's what you think we mean? WRONG! Grim had a beautiful ending putting all the characters into the next stage of their life where inserting a sequal would just be forced and awkward. Not only that but with Tim Schafer gone working at his own excellent company (http://www.doublefine.com/news.htm) there is no one left at LucasArts with the balls to pull a sequal off correctly.

Grim? I've heard of a game with "Grim" in the title: Grim Fandango, and I wouldn't be able to accept a sequel either. However, I have never heard of the title "Gram Fandago", which was the subject of another's comment.

There are some games and movies that don't deserve to have weak sequels because the originals were so amazing and incredible that it would be impossible to top them and make a better sequel (example: GF doesn't need sequels. Rare pulling-offs of this would be MI2 and DOTT)

well...my deal with Sam And Max is that it's not JUST an adventure game. You see all those games out there like Myst that are labeled adventure games...I don't think I laughed at Myst or any of its sequels...there arn't all that many FUNNY adventure games anymore. A game like Sam and Max would just be a joy ride the whole way through. Lucasarts showed it still knows how to make people laugh with Armed and Dangerous...(well...the company they contracted to make the game knows how anyway) I think a game like Sam and Max could bridge the gap to the casual gamers easily and thus sell well...but I don't think Lucasarts sees that. I think they see it as just an adventure game...and the adventure genre has really started moving towards the hardcore fanatics...which is why I think Sam and Max is a bit misrepresented in the eyes of LucasArts marketing, this game would be a laugh a second, far from what the adventure genre is putting out right now.

My view:

Alright so LucasArts has decided to cancel Sam & Max because there simply doesn’t seem to be a market for it. Well they do make a point, most of the modern adventure games are, well, pretty boring. You just get stuck on some island or some strange world and you have to find out how to get back home, or save your world or something messed over. There isn’t a market because for the most part the games suck, and could put you to sleep. Now the original Sam & Max, and most of classic LA games were enjoyable, fast paced and very funny! So yes maybe there isn’t a market, but sometimes one lone game can create a market.

Before Half-Life FPS were all the same. You were some guy with an overpowered shotgun that kills the all monsters that are trying to destroy mankind as we know it. The only thought process required, was when you had to look for the blue key to open the blue door. Then along came Half-Life, now there was a plot, there were people that you could interact and the AI was breathtaking for the era. HL changed the face of FPS and the entire gaming industry all together! Now why was HL so successful? Simple the company took a risk. They decided not to concern themselves with market trends the traditional FPS formula, and went with something new, something know as a major risk. And my god it ever pay off!! Now based on what little information was revealed, S&M: FP could have very well done the exact same thing as HL, only for adventure games. But it can happen if LA keeps the plug out of the wall.

After nearly a month of watching the signatures pile up on the petitions, of seeing forums boards become littered with outrage over this, after hundreds of letters, e-mails and phone calls to LA, after seeing major media sites like IGN and Gamespot and others express their disappointment, I have come to realize that LucasArts simply doesn’t give a rats ass but us. They are ignoring us; our voices are falling on deaf ears. But we are not like LucasArts, we are not afaird of failure. We, as gamers and fans of S&M, will keep fighting until someone listens!!!!

Skinkie
03-29-2004, 03:18 AM
Also that new preview mentions it was due out in Fall 04, which suggests they were behind schedule, but for Lucasarts, that's pretty standard, so I don't know why that would affect it.

03-29-2004, 07:32 PM
When this first happened I posted an article and comic on my site to express how completely upset I was over this. I got a response from someone who works in the game industry. (Which I can verify, she does.)

She said that she has friends at LucasArts and claimed I was flying off the handle and being offensive because the game "sucked" and thats why it was cancelled. She went on to say that they like these types of games just as much as us and were very upset at it being cancelled.

I have a few problems with this. I don't doubt that the people who worked on this do feel that way. I don't doubt that she was telling the truth to the best of her ability. However it doesn't add up that they would release a statement labout adventure games not selling if the real reason was that the game was not working.

Something is fishy and I think it goes back to what you were saying about the management being fukked.

also if the game did suck, then why is a legendary company making something like this? then they still have issues and I have issues with LucasArts. Grr.

Honestly, I don't think that's true. With Full Throttle 2, which showed some serious indications of sucking, it was cancelled...but at least LucasArts said "yeah, we cancelled it 'cause it sucked."

If they're not afraid to admit it with FT2, why would they hide behind "market conditions" for Sam & Max 2?

Sorry, but something's just not adding up there...

Brushguy
04-01-2004, 01:19 AM
Here's how I interpret it after looking at the comments they've released: The sales department could not get their eyes off of the sales of RTX, A&D, and Wrath, instead of looking at the sales of Sam and Max 1. They probably assumed the game wouldn't recoup enough money for them and didn't want to take the risk for money resources. Whether Mike Stemmle had a say in this or not is beyond me.

So they pulled the plug. But good grief, millions of fans are pouring out everything we have within our power - well written and sound e-mails, twenty-thousand signature petitions, pre-ordering a cancelled game - this means something.

22,589 petition signatures times $45 (average cost of game) = $1,016,505 for Lucasarts! Even if the petition is speaking an invalid number, official sites like IGN and magazines like GameSpy would've extended the Sam and Max game to average gaming fans who've never heard of the game, boosting sales higher.

No matter what happens, I firmly believe Lucasarts will revive Sam and Max Freelance Police in the near future.

I'm upset. I just finished playing the first one this year, and then was v. excited that just now, instead of having to wait unforeseen years, a sequel was coming out in a scant few months. and then, the crushing disappointment.

I wrote an e-mail but it was more about catching flies with honey.

They probably canceled it for the same reason for the canceling of Full Throttle 2. I get tired of Lucasarts canceling projects. They canceled Star Wars Galaxies An Empire Divided for Playstation 2 and X-box before they released the PC version. Now they are keeping it PC and making a space expansion pack called Jump to Lightspeed set for a release date of Fall 2004. Typical!

I think this is the whole point. LucasArts seems to be more effort into producing console game, that even though they suck do better sales wise than an adventure PC game would.

Don't be too quick to say that LucasArts is letting Star Wars push other games out of the way. They are still making quite a few non-Star Wars games, and even those Star Wars games they are producing are of uneven quality.

It seems the good old days where LucasArts was merely trying to put out a good game have been replaced with "screw whether it is good or not, it has to be VERY profitable.

I'm guessing that LucasArts assumed that adventure gaming was dead due to poor sales of Grim Fandango (Anyone have sales figures?). But this is a game based on the Mexican holiday Day of the Dead and a lead character with a cylindrical shapped skull. Not the kind of things that inspire high sales.

If that was really the case then I doubt that they ever would have even started production on this game, since GF was published in '97. A lot of money was spent in getting this game as far along as it was. No point in even considering putting thousands of bucks into a game that you know you'll never release...

It had to be something a lot more recent that changed thier mind. Perhaps they were watching the sales of other adventure games being released by competitors.
Perhaps it was a memo that came down from the upper echelons of managment that said "URGENT COST-CUTTING MEASURES: STOP ALL PRODUCTION ON ANY GAME THAT ISN'T GUARANTEED SALES OF (X) COPIES!!!" and maybe it was decided that this was the only game currently in production that met the bill... who knows?!?

Until someone talks, that is...

Steve Purcell would love nothing more than to do just that, but its owned by some company that he has no control over, so it would be completely up to them if they wanted to do something like that. If someone would be nice enough to find out what company that would be and post it here, maybe we could do something like e-mailing then [but not bugging them] to see if they would be willing to give it a shot.

They cancel it for the same reasons why they cancel other games. Because they can!!! Look at the poor selection of titles Lucasarts is offering during E3 2004 this may. Star Wars Battlefront on PC/PS2/X-box, Star Wars Republic Commando on PC/X-box, Star Wars Galaxies:Jump to Lightspeed on PC, Mercenaries on PS2/X-box, Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic for Macintosh, and Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords for PC/X-box. I feel bad for PS2, Gamecube, Gameboy Advance, and Macintosh video game players.

I have heard sales for 2003 non-star wars titles like Gladius, RTX Red Rock, Secret Weapons Over Normandy, and Wrath Unleashed for all versions that came out was average or terrible. I mean you can get RTX Red Rock from Wal-mart for $9.00 dollars now.

Several people tried this when those forums originally opened. They were all locked and deleted. Please don't continue this kind of action, it does nothing but piss off the people at LucasArts and if you want them to ever even consider finishing the game (they won't by the way) then you need to not make them angry.

Friggin'... I'd been waiting for this for a *long* time. Just happened to pick up CGW today (for the Tribes/T2 DVD) and read about this in the "letters" section.

Sorry, my respect for Lucasarts (and, honestly, Lucas-anything) has just continued to slide downhill. I mean, really:
-Used to put out a variety of *good* games, Star Wars related or not.
- Used to take chances.

Now:
-Mostly Star Wars related, and console-themed (even on the PC side, which make *those* suffer.)
- Even if it's not, they screw up their *own* properties. (I was looking forward to Secret Weapons over Normandy, having liked SWOTL... until SWON turned out to be an arcade game, not a sim.)
- Lucas himself gives up story in his milk-cow SW franchise for more "speed" and kiddie effects
- Starwars.com hides its decent content behind "Hyperspace" - after how many years, and does this for Ep 3, not 1 or 2...

I think the bean counters have taken control over from the artists and people who just love the games and movies.

So, IMHO... Lucas(inc) is dying as a producer of art, and becoming another corporate monolith.

RIP.

In the long run, I think LucasArts will ultimately suffer because they are abandoning the very thing that made them successful in the first place. Is it possible to overdose on Star Wars games?


Any rumors for a DOTT 2?

There's supposed to be a third Maniac Mansion?

Then why the hell are you asking for rumours about a game that does not exist, Mr. Misanthrope?

There's been some completely unfounded rumours for like 10 years now, nothing even significant enough to mention. Point is, they're not making it.
