I saw that. It surprised me to find out that Steve Purcell's brother came up with Sam & Max. I have to point out, though, that this isn't by Telltale :p

Oh man, it's an old story.Surfin' the Highway is dedicated to his little brother because of it. I think the story was told most extensively in an Amazing Heroes interview from the late 80s early 90s, but it seems like Purcell tells it almost exactly the same every time.

I should enjoy this though. I hate the narrator, oh well.

Snugglecakes 04-22-2010 06:26 PM

Yeah yeah you know what I meant :) Cool little clip though although the narrator isn't the best.

Aw, is that all there is so far? I was hoping to have this going for a while at work. It was just getting juicy. I guess the rest of the episodes will be coming out in a few weeks?

I like the art examples they picked to show as well.

Great video. Terrible narrator... Also: Steve Purcell didn't work on Maniac Mansion OR Loom?! Unless I'm very much mistaken. So, why didn't they show some of his lovely backgrounds from Indy 3 or SOMI? :-/

Can't wait for Part 2!

He animated Bishop Mandible losing his head in Loom, but I don't think he worked on Maniac Mansion.

He definitely didn't touch any Maniac Mansion, but I have read in an interview somewhere once that he was given the more physical scenes to animate in Loom. Bishop Mandible's death as Giygas said is the only confirmed one that's his so far. I would guess he did a lot because only him and Gary Winnick are credited for character animation. It's hard to tell who did what in the earlier games without the scanned backgrounds, but I'm only really familiar with Purcell's style.

Too bad Rogue Leaders didn't really do much in the way of separating sprites and backgrounds to each artist. I would have trimmed the 100 end pages of Star Wars and games LA didn't actually develop for more in depth stuff on all of the early games.

Also Purcell did art for Pipe Dream as well early on along with the box art.

Hooray! I want more!

Snugglecakes 05-25-2010 03:54 PM

I'm dying for them to do the same thing with Monkey Island. I'm also dying for a beer with Steve Purcell.
