Skunkape Games announced today that it is remastering Sam & Max Save the World for Switch and PC on December 2.

Save the World is a point-and-click adventure game that debuted in 2006 through a series of six episodic releases. The now defunct Telltale Games developed it. Former Telltale staff make up Skunkape, which acquired the rights to Sam & Max after Telltale’s closure in 2018.

Sam & Max first entered the gaming space with 1993’s Sam & Max Hit the Road by LucasArts, and it’s one of the funniest point-and-click adventure titles ever made. Telltale then brought the series back with its episodic releases, creating three seasons of Sam & Max shenanigans. Save the World’s six episodes make up the first season.
