Whaddaya reckon will be next to extrude from Double Fine’s remastering machine? We know Full Throttle is on the way, which most likely leaves Loom or, my own dear Lucasheart, Sam & Max Hit The Road.
I’m looking forwards to Full Throttle Remastered, but with those crisp and hyper-styled cutscenes still looking great to this day, it feels like the game that least needs it – even if it’s the Lucasarts adventure which most deserves another spell in the sun. Sam & Max’s humour feels of the decade it came from, but a coat of animation-quality paint could do its beautifully absurd sights the world of good.
It’s always been the road trip aspect of Sam & Max which has most appealed to me, and while I’m instinctively a little wary of remasterings, I’d get a little breathless at the idea of seeing the World’s Largest Ball Of Twine, The Mystery Vortex and Bumpusville in clean-edged HD and all that pointlessly modern jazz. Whatever will they do with the freeway surfing minigame, though?
And hey, might finally take the taste of those Telltale things out of my mouth, eh?
