Introduction =============================================================================== After creating two successful adventure game adaptations of the Bone comic book series, Telltale Games has now switched its efforts to creating episodic games for the crime-fighting dog and rabbit duo, Sam and Max. In this first game in the season, Sam and Max have noticed that a crime wave caused by a group of former child stars known as the Soda Poppers has started. It soon becomes clear that the Soda Poppers have all been hypnotised, and it's up to Sam and Max to find out by who and why. Featuring a similar style of humour as the original, this is a very promising start to a season of six episodic games. =============================================================================== 2.
