Sam & Max is coming to the Wii and Telltale Games isn’t using WiiWare for the transition. The six episodes that make up Sam & Max Season One will be repackaged on a disc and distributed by Dreamcatcher this fall. Telltale hasn’t outlined any details about extra content, but they claim “the new Wii version will present Sam & Max in a format that can be enjoyed from the comfort of the living room, either alone or with a group of friends.”
I can’t fathom a group of friends watching me waggle through puzzles and enjoying it. It sounds like they are hinting at a multiplayer mode. Mini-games? Everyone loves mini-games. It’s really in Telltale’s best interest to add something to make the Wii version attractive to people who played the PC episodes. While Sam & Max Season One was entertaining, it’s not the kind of game I would purchase twice. Reruns are overrated.
