Storyline

The year is 1950 and Sam and Max are a pair of detectives somewhere in New York. While Sam is a no nonsense, dry humored, drab individual, his bizarre life is kept interesting by partner Max, a perverse and sadistic midget with a psychotic sense of humor, violent tendencies and a swearing fetish. Living in a rundown office building/office, they pass through life day by day off of saved money from their glory days, and spend time watching TV and participating in other strange activities as they wait for an assignment. One day, after a dry spell of employment, Sam and Max are called to the scene of a kidnapping at a local tourist trap. It seems two human oddities, a Bigfoot and a giraffe necked girl, have been kidnapped, and the Siamese twin brothers, who are no stranger then the oddities they promote, are paying a large cash sum up front for the return of their prized possessions.

Classic. A Must Play for Adventure Fans
12 January 2001 | by mr_walshSee all my reviews

Wow, what a game! Great puzzles. Some of the funniest moments in video game history reside here - like the "Edu-tainment" interlude. Great music too; my favorite is the "world's largest ball of twine" song. On a great general midi card this sound WONDERFUL.

The only problem is that it's a pain to get this game to run anymore; it really works best on a DOS-only platform. But you can probably get it to work with some effort, and it's worth it believe me.

I have a question: WHERE IS THE SEQUEL!?! Could there be a more beloved universally liked adventure game?
