My Journey into Game Pass - Sam & Max Save the World
The adventure game was once the staple of PC gaming. Sierra On-Line, LucasArts, and other developers thrilled us with exciting journeys riddled with creative and often very challenging puzzles to solve. Then the first-person shooter hit and adventure games were all but wiped off the map as players traded their brains for guns. Fast forward a number of years and the adventure game is seeing a renaissance, mostly in the form of Telltale experiences that favour storytelling over gameplay, with most of the player interaction coming in the form of dialogue trees and the occasional quicktime event.

But Telltale did start off doing things right. Enter Sam & Max Save the World, a Telltale game that I can truly call a game because there is actual gameplay involved. The puzzles were back. And in this game, they were akin to some of those brainscratchers of yesteryear, but the clues are there if you look for them.

The original Sam & Max Hit the Road was one of my favourite games of its time. It's right up there alongside Full Throttle and Freddy Pharkas Frontier Pharmacist (say that 10 times fast). It was the perfect combination of gameplay and satire that I first learned was possible through the Leisure Suit Larry series. This more recent entry remains faithful to the characters, and is sure to entertain.

Broken into six smaller episodes, the games span a small number of environments that the player will have to return to multiple times, even more if they get stuck. You have to pay attention to plenty of details - the objects you can interact with in the scene, the descriptions, the conversations, and even Max's autonomous wanderings will help lead you in the right direction if you are observant. But don't worry if you get stuck, as there is a fantastic walkthrough on this site that will have you on the right track in no time. But I recommend playing without it, experiencing the full range of comedy and reminiscing (or experiencing for the first time) what adventure games used to be like before we started handholding so much.

I was able to complete the game fully in just a couple of sessions, tackling an episode or two each time. Most of the Achievements are obtained by simply completing episodes, but you will want to check out the list to keep an eye open for a few that require some special attention. These aren't terribly tough, but if you didn't know they were there you could easily miss them. If you do miss them, don't worry because you can get them by just replaying the episode in which they are found.

I should also note that in addition to this completion, I also wrapped up the last of my time attacks in Galaga Legions DX for the second completion of the week. This brings my total completions to 139, 6 of which have come through Game Pass. Next time on the Journey, I will satisfy a long-standing curiosity. Thanks for stopping by.
