I've heard from a couple people now that IM isn't going as far as closing up shop and canceling upcoming projects, etc. It sounds like they just got a bit smaller.

I indirectly asked him in a letter :o. He may not (and probably won't) mention it if/when he replies.

My best guess is if anything like Infinite Machine 1) going out of business 2) canceling their next game happens, they'll update their site. What I've heard lately is they just shrank a lot but arent going away.

I do always wonder why Mr.Purcell never has any sort of involvement with his fans. Maybe he likes us but doesn't like us. (If you know what I mean.)

My guess is if Mr. Steve Purcell ever came across fansites he wouldn't dive in because for one nobody would give their honest opinion on anything anymore (or their all too honest opinion! *gasp*), and, well, considering it's devoured at least Metallus and my life (not to mention AndrewL's wallet) it's probably a safe thing to steer clear of if you can avoid it.

yes indeed. I've spent alot of money and will be spending much more in time. I'm the true Sam & max fiend...jake has the Steve Purcell connection and gets all that cool stuff while i gotta scour the streets, bug guys who worked for nelvana, and search for hours on the net for something new. Damn you Jake!

I bet Steve Purcell DID get on this site, and he said to himself: "My god! I've created a fan-base of overly-cynical psycotics! I've got to stop this *picks up his phone and calls infinite machine* Hello? yeah, this is Steve. I want you to cancel the Sam & Max game! Why? FOR THE GOOD OF HUMANITY, THATS WHY!!!!!". I swear its all true!

You do realize you are being cynical when you call us cynics. Snicker. The fallacies of mankind.

I wish i was a dolphin, because they don't have a concept of cynicism, and they can swim real fast!

All I know is that Steve has come to Jake's site cuz when I met him he gave a good review of it.

yes, yes they can. Lesbien dolphins swim fastest.

Of course Purcell has been to Jake's site! If Jake knows him personally then you'd think he'd know about the site.

BTW, slight revision: I do agree with isaac that "a bit smaller" should be "a lot smaller," or at least just "smaller."
