Great dancing polar bears spinning plates in a three-ring circus! Sam & Max are heading to PlayStation consoles!
Skunkape Games, a small indie team made up of people who worked on Telltale’s Sam & Max games, are putting the finishing touches on PlayStation versions of Sam & Max Save the World and Sam & Max: Beyond Time and Space.
Originally released in 2006 and 2007 as Sam & Max Season One, Sam & Max Save the World is a six-part adventure that was widely considered the first successful episodic game. Skunkape acquired the rights after Telltale closed down in 2018. The remastered version launched on PC and Nintendo Switch in 2020.
Meanwhile, Sam & Max: Beyond Time and Space is the remastered version of Telltale Games’ Sam & Max Season Two, which was released 13 years ago. The remaster launched on PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S last year.
The remasters “spruce up Sam & Max’s episodic adventures with higher resolution graphics, dynamic lighting, improved lip sync, remastered audio, and a number of aesthetic and quality-of-life tweaks that make these classic games look beautiful and play smoothly on PS4 and PS5,” Skunkape says.
Both games will launch digitally on the PlayStation Store on September 29.
