'Sam & Max Save the World'

Sam and Max won the hearts and split the sides of gamers with their PC title "Sam & Max Hit the Road." With the cancellation of their intended follow up and the layoffs of key members at LucasArts, It was feared that the crime-fighting duo and their esoteric brand of criminal justice would never return. In 2006, Telltale Games brought the series back in episodic form. It was the company's first major success that helped pave the way for their acclaimed "Walking Dead" series.
