Sam & Max licensees

Group Description

Adventure games featuring as main protagonists Steve Purcell's surreal crime-fighting comic book (1987) and animated series (1997) duo of Sam, the gruff, hard-bitten film noir private investigator dog, and Max, his deranged rabbit buddy, as they travel to exotic locales in a DeSoto Adventurer and engage whimsical bad guys in their capacity as so-called 'Freelance Police'.

Sam & Max make cameo easter-egg appearances in many LucasArts games. These games are not included in the group.

Almost ten years after the original game, Sam & Max Hit the Road (1993), the sequel Sam & Max Freelance Police was announced, again developed by LucasArts. The game was however cancelled on March 3rd, 2004. Bad Brain Entertainment tried to acquire the license, but on March 2nd, 2005 LucasArts broke off all negotiations.

The license with the original creator Steve Purcell expired in May 2005 and he took it to Telltale Games. The sequel was released in episodic nature between October 2006 and May 2007, with six standalone installments forming a single season.
