  • Embark on an Irreverent Cartoon Adventure with Sam and Max: Abe Lincoln Must Die Game

    Premium-Inhalt. Good adventure game design is a lost art. Compared to other genres, adventure games are more about personality than mechanics, a fact that escapes modern developers who pass off simplified RPGs with linear quest structures as "adventure games" that satisfy no one. Adventures are more about the story rather than the grind, finding the next room rather than gaining the next level, and exploring dialog trees instead of maps. This set of priorities requires the talent behind the title to be focused in ways that differ radically from other types of games. Dialog and voice acting, for example, become core components rather than afterthoughts. TellTale games proves they understand this with their Sam and Max revival series, a set of episodic old-school adventure games recast with crisp high resolution graphics, challenging puzzles and the quirky cast of characters that have made this oddball duo famous around the world. I took a look at episode 4, Sam & Max: Abe Lincoln Must Die, which is free.
