Last December, Skunkape Games released Sam & Max Save the World Remastered on Nintendo Switch, and a year later, it’s back to do it again. Skunkape Games has announced a release date of December 8, 2021 for Sam & Max: Beyond Time and Space Remastered on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC, retailing for $19.99. Both of these titles are remasters of episodic games developed by Telltale Games a decade ago, and Skunkape actually consists of former Telltale employees. So things are coming full circle nicely.
Here is a description of what to expect from Sam & Max: Beyond Time and Space Remastered ahead of its December release date:
In this five-episode collection of interconnected cases, Sam & Max are back on the crime beat in a showdown with Santa Claus, a race to subdue a giant volcano, and a faceoff with a Eurotrash vampire. And then things get even weirder.
Is paranoid shopkeeper Bosco on to something with his talk of a grand conspiracy? Is diner proprietress Stinky hiding the truth about what happened to her grandfather (also named Stinky)? Will flaky neighbor Sybil Pandemik ever find true love? Did someone say… BIRTHDAY?!
Hop into the DeSoto for a hilarious outing that won IGN’s Adventure Game of the Year award the first time around and now looks and sounds better than ever, with gorgeous HD graphics, overhauled lighting and lip-sync, finessed cinematography, remastered audio, and eight all-new musical tracks featuring live jazz musicians.
Zombies will dance. Mariachis will sing. A giant battle robot will trash the streets. And when their friends’ lives are on the line, Sam and Max will risk their very souls to set things right.
