In case you couldn’t tell by now, I’m a huge Sam and Max fan. Telltale Games has been doing a fantastic job of keeping the humor and fun of the original game intact with their episodic series, and if Ice Station Santa (review here) is any indication of the quality of the rest of the second season, we’re in for a treat.
They just released a new video of gameplay footage of the second episode, which is called Moai Better Blues. This’ll give you some indication of how damn funny the game is, and introduce you to a few of the recurring side characters. Of course most of them will return, but here we see Sybil Pandemik (Sam and Max’s job-challenged neighbor) on vacation with the statue of Abraham Lincoln severed head. They’re currently dating, and if that makes you scratch your head, well perhaps it’s time to check the game out for yourself.
Sam and Max: Moai Better Blues will appear on Gametap on January 10th, and be available to download from their site the following day.
