The question is: Who keeps releasing those pictures to the public... Think about it. This could be a good sing.

Well, magazines' articles are written about a month before their publishing.. so that doesn't mean anything.

Hello, i'm a spanish fan. I read mojo everyday. I still can't believe that LucasArts have cancelled Sam & Max 2 :mad: ... Are LucasArts crazy? Probably. I know that a lot of fans on everywhere are waiting for the game. I go to the spanish forums everyday and I see that all people was waiting this game. This is the worse decision that LucasArts have made it ever. This Screenshots are very, very beautiful (the screenshot of Sam & Max dancing are hilarius and REALLY VERY GOOD). :( I hope that LucasArts think this situacion well...

Note: Sorry, my english is not perfect :(
Best regards for you, people and for mojo.

Hold me.

Lucasarts probably will change their minds as soon as guybrush guy sends in the 20,000 signature petition and they get all the pre-order information from eBGames.

The chances are that they already know about the petition - it's not like they don't keep an eye on the community. What'd really do it would be to print all of the pages off and then mail them in.

Just don't send me the printing/labour bill.

I believe it's already printed.

Also, another set of sweet shots... **** LucasArts.

I thought I said that guybrush guy would print it out and send it off. But I'll say it again. guybrush guy said he'd print the 20,000 signature petition and send it to Lucasarts.

Just don't send me the printing/labour bill.

guybrush guy says it's around $80-$100.

Those screenshots are awesome. We're finally seeing spots besides the ones seen in the first game (i.e. Sam and Max's office and the street outside). We finally see Flint Paper in 3D, and what looks like the St. Livina's Day Dance and some sort of library. The fact that the date is moved from spring to fall could mean something...(crosses fingers)

Upon re-reading that press release it doesn't say it was cancelled, says they simply stopped production on it. COULD be interpreted as cancelled, but what if they're simply taking the team and giving them a break so as to not work em' into the ground, and then they'll let them finish it for fall...


Also, why is Max holding a WWII German pistol in his hand in one of those screenies?

I like that idea. Let's hope all of this insanity from the month of March is just a misunderstanding! :)

But if it were a misunderstanding, don't you think LucasArts would at least bother to try and clear it up before letting us build our voodoo dolls of them and plot their untimely demises, etc.?

Or perhaps not. Perhaps they're really that stupid after all. Who knows.

As for the new screenshots...I think I'll go weep openly. Again.

Did you actually read the whole thing? It says they believe there's no market for adventure games on the PC right now. While they didn't use the word 'cancelled' that's what they're saying.

This is silly :(

The game is actually cancelled. It would totally rule if they were lying, but that's not the kind of thing a company the size of LucasArts would do. Besides, today's LucasArts hasn't got the sense of humor or even angry, bitter wit to do something like that.

The reason all these screenshots "keep being given out" or whatever is because all of the "April" and "May" issues of magazines are actually written, laid out, and sent to the printer in February and March, long before the cancellation press release went out.

That's why print magazi nes are more or less worthless when it comes to getting up to date gaming news, unless the magazines make a deal with a publisher to break a game's announcement or first screenshots or something as an exclusive, like what happened with the new Leisure Suit Larry.

Yar, why couldn't it be an April fool's joke? It's so close to April... and maybe the amazing 'stupidity' they're displaying is just a prank... after all, who could be THAT stupid (as everyone says)? And who said Lucasarts doesn't have a sense of humor? I doubt we would have made that assumption before they 'cancelled' Sam and Max 2.
That's just my theory... and I stand by it.

DENIAL.

I agree. Total denial, man.

Be intresting if this was an elaborate April Fools joke.....


Also, the thing said there isn't a market for it right now, but when you stop and think they didn't reduce staff either, so they DO probably plan on releasing it, just not right now....

I just like the irony that the most we've seen in-game of Sam & Max: Freelance Police happens AFTER the game's cancellation. Everything before was a CGI trailer and some concept art.

Brushguy
03-28-2004, 08:15 PM
I'm believing that Lucasarts will reconsider, tell us that they changed their minds, and put the game up for a fall release. After all, it's kind of hard to ignore a 22,000 signature petition and thousands of dollars that have gone into pre-ordering a cancelled game, all from people who are 100% aware of the cancellation.

guybrush guy, please! Did you send in the petition?

jimmycracker
03-28-2004, 08:25 PM
Ok, perhaps it's not an april fools joke... but maybe Lucasarts is overwhelmed by the public's response, and doesn't want to admit they made a mistake... so they'll use april fool's as an excuse to bring back the game. :)

Stemmle (the project leader) is a bit of a joker, and the fact that he hasn't said anything is a bit mysterious. But I doubt it's a joke, or they would've said something by now.

but maybe Lucasarts is overwhelmed by the public's response, and doesn't want to admit they made a mistake

Very possible. The sane thing to do would be to un-cancel it, which they will, I know.

what would the development team who were working on sam & max be working on now? if mike stemmle was moved to some star wars game..what a waste of talent..

Message sent to anyone that might listen.

Please reconsider your decision on canceling Freelance Police.

There really is life other than Star Wars!

Come on I'm 53 years old and it would be nice to play a fun game for a change before I go to that great ball of twine in the sky .

I'm tired of first person shooters and online stuff.

I was hoping you would even consider DOTT 2?

How can you cancel the game when the gaming magazines do a top 50 games of all time; Sam and Max and DOTT are consistently among the top ten?

Doesn't that say that people love this kind of game genre?

By now april 1st approaches quickly, yes, but they cancelled it a while ago, when april was far far away.
