The final chapter of Telltale’s beloved adventure game series, Sam & Max, is getting a fresh coat of paint with the upcoming release of Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse Remastered. This remastered version will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam and GOG, starting August 14, for $19.99.

About the Game

The Devil’s Playhouse is known for its unique blend of quirky humor and engaging puzzles. In this remastered version, players will once again join the Freelance Police duo as they navigate a series of bizarre and supernatural events. Max, the more chaotic half of the team, gains psychic abilities from a mysterious toy, leading them into a confrontation with various villains seeking the powerful Toys of Power.

Key Features of the Remaster

The remaster promises a range of improvements over the original 2010 release. Skunkape Games, the team behind this project, has enhanced the game’s graphics, lighting, lip-sync, cinematography, and music. Players can expect beautifully remastered visuals and a smoother gameplay experience.

One of the notable additions is the inclusion of content that was previously cut from the original game. The environments have been overhauled, and the remaster also introduces various quality of life improvements, such as a more intuitive user interface and new point-and-click controls. Additionally, features like The Nutri-Specs, which were exclusive to the PS3 version, are now available across all platforms.

Continuing the Legacy

This remaster is part of a broader effort by Skunkape Games to bring the classic Sam & Max series to modern platforms. The team, consisting of former Telltale staff, has been working on remastering the entire trilogy over the past five years. The first two seasons have already been successfully updated, and The Devil’s Playhouse marks the final piece of this ambitious project.

As the release date approaches, fans of the series and newcomers alike have a lot to look forward to. The updated visuals, additional content, and modernized gameplay mechanics are set to breathe new life into this classic adventure. Are you ready to join Sam & Max on their latest escapade?
