And just when we were beginning to like Honest Abe, too. Since their resurrection from the annals of comedic adventure game legend last fall, our favorite freelance police have battled the mob, misguided child stars, and snuck onto television. This is episodic gaming done right.
Their newest downloadable romp, no doubt full of snide pop culture references and wacky antics, finds our canine and lupine heroes battling their greatest foe yet: politics.
Straight from Telltale Games themselves: “The President of the United States has lost it. Federally mandated group hugs, a pudding embargo... what's next, gun control? Sam & Max are off to Washington to take care of this bozo, but the political climate will only get stormier... and a new power will rise…”
Sounds like a deliciously potent recipe for comedy to us. As usual, Sam & Max Episode 4: Abe Lincoln Must Die! will drop first on GameTap on February 22, followed by a worldwide release on Telltale’s website on March 8.
Hit the Images and Movies tabs above for the first batch of screenshots and a teaser trailer, respectively.
