Sam & Max Returning in 2010

By Chris Faylor, Dec 09, 2009 7:55am PST Having just released the fifth and final Tales of Monkey Island chapter yesterday, developer Telltale has already begun teasing what is presumably its next release.

Freshly launched teaser site "Sam & Max 2010" confirms the duo's imminent return across the next year, and also packs a selection of concept art and sound clips.

"It's a familiar tale, a power-mad space gorilla pitted against a canine detective and a sociopathic bunny with psychic powers," declares the site's narrator. "But my friends, this story is different. In this story, you are in control."

As is the nature of such teases, some details--in particular, platforms--have yet to be revealed. Telltale's Sam & Max outings have brought the episodic adventure series to PC, Wii and Xbox 360, with the company eyeing PlayStation 3 for unspecified works.

Traditionally, Telltale's efforts have tended to hit PC first and consoles later, but CEO Dan Connors recently told Shacknews that "our goal, going forward, is to launch on as many platforms as we can simultaneously."

In the meantime, the concept art is above, and a transcription of the audio below:

In all the universe, the only power behind the mind's comprehension is the power to comprehend the power of the mind. If any one of us could unlock this terrible power, would we use it to explore the mysteries of the infinite, or would we use it to destroy?

It's a familiar tale, a power-mad space gorilla pitted against a canine detective and a sociopathic bunny with psychic powers.

But my friends, this story is different. In this story, you are in control. There will soon come a time when you will be called upon to lead Sam and Max to defeat the forces of evil.
