The second episode of the epic The Devil’s Playhouse saga, Sam and Max: The Tomb of Sammun-Mak is now available for download on PC, Mac, iPad and PSN.
Preceded by The Penal Zone, The Tomb of Sammun-Mak picks up right where the first episode left off, thrusting our favorite Dog and Rabbit duo into another series of wacky adventures. Well, kinda; It does pick up right where the first episode left off, but instead of Sam and Max you play as Sameth and Maximus, the great-grandparents of our usual protagonists.
“What has happened to Sam and Max?” I hear you ask. Well, as you can see in the trailer below, not a lot! It just so happens that the duo has found some dusty old film reels and decided to watch a movie or four about their fantastic (and remarkably similar) great-grandparents. The following puzzles will require you to flip-flop between the films, as well as figuring out the puzzles contained within each film. Don’t worry if it sounds confusing – this being TellTale Games, it all inevitably makes sense, and it’s all incredibly well-made.
Check out the trailer below:
Having recently played The Penal Zone, I can’t wait to sit down and play through The Tomb of Sammun-Mak. Don’t get me wrong, I love Sam and Max, but I think Sameth’s mustache is far too enticing to let slip by. And look at that hat! I wish I had a hat like that.
