Will all the dialogue be the same as in the original?
The wording on the developer’s website is a bit ambiguous. On the one hand, they promise that all the jokes will be as we remember them — but then they immediately contradict this by saying that they may be even better than we remember them, implying that they tinkered with them. So what is it now? Will the dialogue be the same or not? I’ve already sent Skunkape Games an e-mail about this, but haven’t heard back from them yet. I’m hesitant about preordering the game until I get a clear answer.

Let me just lube up...
On second thought, no thanks.

Remember when Telltale got started on the wallets of point & click adventure game fans, and then turned around & ♥♥♥♥ all over the old customers as soon as it started having some success, instead chasing that sweet mainstream public?


How many of you are going to fall for it again? Get in the merry-go-round, kids! It's time for another ride! :steamsalty:

I don't get it. Do you think this is being made by the exact same people that ran Telltale Games into bankruptcy?

What exactly would the trick here even be if it was being published by Telltale? No one's exactly being "tricked" into buying something they didn't want, mate.

what the hell are you even talking about? Because a game company makes another Sam and Max game similar to the circumstances the first one was made so it's going to do the same exact thing that company did. I honestly don't even know where you're getting this from

Correlation doesn't equal Causation
I bought season 1 on a physical disc, the last physical PC game I bought. Nowadays despite owning the OG game, I can´t play because I don´t have a disc/dvd reader on my current PC.

So yeah, I´m buying this game again to have it on steam, hopefully it will exist as a single game and not the separated episodes like Season 3, and hopefully they will add achievements and the alike.

Plenty of games get remasters today, I´m glad for once it´s an adventure game.

From the FAQ on the Skunkape website:

"Some key scenes have been punched up with new acting and camerawork..."

This is the only reference to changing any of the dialog, only implying they've made small additions to some jokes to make them funnier, but otherwise it's the same joke.

I'm not really sure what use of the word "better" you're questioning here, because that could be in reference to anything, whether it be better in terms of audio quality (which they've also said has been improved), or better in terms of joke delivery, so it doesn't sound like a contradiction to me.

I wrote that text in the FAQ. It has two meanings: 1) changes to the camerawork and comedic timing mean that some of the jokes land better than they did originally, and 2) collectively the improvements and added polish make for a better overall experience, so when you replay the game you may come away from it feeling like it's an even better/funnier game now than you remember it being. (That was my experience playing it!)

Thank you for your response. So the lines themselves remain untouched?

EDIT 12/3: Not correct! Turns out a few lines were changed (I didn't know that when I made this post). I'm sorry for any confusion that caused.

All right, I just preordered it.

New Bosco Dialogue
I know you brought on a new Bosco VA, are all the jokes sticking to the original script, just rerecorded, or are there adlibs/new jokes in there?
Thanks, and good luck with the release!

the q&a says they are keeping all the orignal jokes and dialog
Bowling4Kleers Dec 1, 2020 @ 4:06pm 
Cool, sounds perfect

EDIT: This was wrong, see selected answer for examples
