Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse Remastered: The Duo Needs More Time

The wise dog and the mad rabbit won’t be keeping their 2023 release date, but instead we can expect a slight delay in Skunkape Games’ remake.


On the penultimate day of 2022, the studio announced that it planned to release Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse in 2023, but according to a recent announcement, the release date has been pushed back to the spring of 2024, and Skunkape has also announced the target platforms. Those with previous-generation hardware can rejoice, as the new version of the point-and-click adventure game will be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC (Steam) for $20.

Here’s an overview of the game: “An ancient, terrible power lies in wait… Max has always been the more unhinged member of the Freelance Police – a lovable lunatic with a knack for spreading chaos wherever he goes. But recently, his abilities have taken a supernatural turn. It all started when he stumbled upon a mysterious toy that allows him to see into the future. Now, Sam and Max have attracted the attention of a host of villains from across the galaxy who are hell-bent on acquiring the magical Toys of Power for their own purposes. As those seeking the Devil’s Toybox close in and Max’s psychic abilities grow beyond his control, the Freelance Police will face their most formidable adversary yet: the power of Max’s mind.

Explore strange locations, meet eccentric characters, and solve brain-bending puzzles in an interactive story with surprises around every corner. Dive into Max’s brain and use the Toys of Power to see the future, teleport, read minds, and perform other tricks. The game knows when you’re stuck and gives you subtle hints. Lighting, lip-sync, cinematography, music, and more have been updated and enhanced to bring Telltale’s 2010 episodic season up to modern standards. See the episodic Sam & Max series through to its epic conclusion.

Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse Remastered is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC this spring.
