this might be off topic from lucasarts stuff, but does anyone know anything new about the new Sam & Max game being developed by Infinite Machine?:confused:

Only thing I know other than what' stated on the site is that there have been a few reports that it'll be developed for the XBox. Don't know if this is true or not tho. Seeing that the site states "next gen consoles", my guess is that'll be released for both XBox and GameCube, but I could be way off base on that one.

I don't see how Sam & Max could possibly become a Tomb Raider game, since everyone knows that everything with the "Sam & Max" label on it is just a vehicle for the characters. Without the constant banter and commentary on everything in sight the charm is lost.

Sam and Max? a Tomb Raider game?

what?


I would just assume to keep checking out the infinite-machine website, or searching around the web for any info... but I'd also assume that Jake would put some news on the Unofficial about it, so that's that.

I suggest that anyone who wants to talk about S&M2 should check out the Sam and Max.net forums. They just opened, and totally kick ass!

have you guys ever play an adventure game called "The Watchmaker"?, it might look like that except with a completely different mood to it, buuuuuuuut ya' never know. Their press report was pretty vague.

That doesn't really surprise me. I don't see how a mid-range PC could handle cel-shading (which I'm guessing it will use - it'd only make sense) at all.

Perhaps in two years? Which would probably be the time the game would be released. Hey, it could happen!

by the time the game is developed cel-shading would be WAY below the capacity of PCs, in fact geforce is already pretty tasty in that area

True, I'm pretty sure the GeForce3 with a decent amount of RAM and a newer CPU should be able to handle cel-shading fairly well.

With that said, I still sorta doubt we'll see a PC version. :)
