It is hard to be professional when you're as mad as most of us are about the cancellation. But, you're right, we should personally attack anyone, even that bleepity bleep bleep, Mike Nelson.

I will definitely tell my local PC gamers friends about this too. Several are LucasArts fans of older games. They will definitely ban their products too.

LucasArts just doesn't get it. We don't want more StarWars related games! We want original games!

First there was EA and the whole Origin crisis. EA has ruined and closed a lot of independent developing houses. Origin was one they ruined after Ultima Ascension was released. That piece of crap stinks so bad, I wish I could flush it down the toilet! No wonder Richard Garriot, the creator of the Ultima games left his own company. He couldn't stand EA taking over. EA also ruined Bullfrog and others. I haven't bought an EA published game since Ultima Ascension!

Black Isle is no more too.


It's time we take a stand against big software publishers, and go back to the roots and support local independent developers and their original games.

Console games are being focused on so heavily these days, it's leaving PC games in the dust. I go to my local software stores, and see nothing but X-Box and PS2 games lining the walls. It used to be nothing but PC games!

I am NOT interested in console games. I DO NOT own a console. I detest consoles. I only wish to play quality PC games.

This Forum is only for technical support for LucasArts games so we have removed the threads regarding the cancellation of Sam & Max: Freelance Police. However, please send any feedback you have to our Public Relations Dept. at PR@LucasArts.com

Ronda Scott, our Community Relations Specialist is monitoring the mail to this address and reviewing your comments. Rest assured, your voices are being heard.

Thank you. "

At least we have someone to write to. Don't insult her - she's just the one reading the mail!

I just emailed the PR dept to express my concerns. I'm not buying another LucasArts branded game or merchandise until a shift towards ORIGINAL Adventure PC games comes back.

Please LucasArts, no more lame Console games either. Come back to PC gaming.

I sent a snail mail letter out today. Snail mail letters make more of an impact than email or e-petitions, so I encourage anyone who has an interest in the game to do likewise.

I recommend strongly, however, that you word your letter in a somewhat professional fashion. That means using proper grammer, spellchecking, punctuation, full words (never use 'u' for 'you', etc) and an appropriate letter format, either block or indent style. Even if you wish to keep the tone of your letter negative (as I did), avoid profanity.

You can see one of the later revisions of the letter that I sent in a previous post in this topic.

You can find examples of the proper formatting for business letters at
http://www.wisc.edu/writing/Handbook...essLetter.html

Be sure to include your address at the top (as indicated) and your full name at the bottom.

Buddy, this topic, and hope of the game coming out, is as dead as a door nail or coffin nail or what ever the hell you want to call it.

Sam & Max 2 - Cancelled(?)

I just noticed that the Press Release that announced the cancellation is gone.

Check it out:
http://lucasarts.com/press/releases/85.html

What could that mean?
The original Sam & Max isn't even listed as a classic anymore either. Are they trying to get rid of all evidence of Sam & Max?
Will they sell it to another developer? Any thoughts?

Yeah its probably a giant conspiracy, why don't you go investigate.


Just because people think what I say don't make sense, doesn't mean I don't like popsicles.

I'm not saying it's a conspiracy, but I've never understood why the decision to stop development was made and announced by Mike Nelson the VP of Finance and Administration and not Randy Breen the VP for Development. I mean a bean counter shouldn't really have much to say about Development. Am I wrong?

Wait, you registered in March, but didn't start posting until now? What the hell?

And that decision I'm sure was a joint one.

Most likely the only reason that Sam and Max was listed under classics was because they were planning on doing a re-release in America for the original game.

When the game was cancelled, there was no reason to list it any more, as a rerelease certainly won't be happening now.

The only question I have at this point is why does this have to be the game with so many questions shrouded in mystery, only to be left unanswerd.

So sad

I am mad at Lucasarts still. I just can't believe they cancel this game and Full Throttle Hell on Wheels. I wanted both games. Probably won't see a sequel to Grim Fandango either.

This Forum is only for technical support for LucasArts games so we have removed the threads regarding the cancellation of Sam & Max: Freelance Police.
Well, there we have it. A public message from LucasArts that confirms it. Previously, it has only been "not the appropriate time" and a sign that it perhaps would be continued in the future (yeah, sure, that's what he meant ). But now it's official.

And the idea of putting Sam & Max: Freelance Police stuff (the stuff that are already made) on the net; it will never happen. If LucasArts lets us see the stuff, they know that it will increase the hate-movement, because the game is so far in production that we will complain much more about them not finishing the game (because there's so little left to do to complete it).

I hope that they DO go to Hell on account of their lust for crap Star Wars games and are thrown into Lust Freezers and/or Screaming Subspace Voids! Perhaps then, they will wish they had given us Sam & Max:Freelance Police. Perhaps they will regret breaking their five-game contracts with Guybrush and the Voodoo Lady!

Murray, for godsake just let it go. The game is not coming back so why don't you just disappear like all of those other idiots who registered after the cancellation and don't fit in anywhere else.
