clap clap blog: we have moved

Listen folks, I don't normally do this sort of thing, but...

LucasArts is making a sequel to Sam & Max Hit the Road.

And it's being canceled.

More info here.

The original Sam & Max is one of the best games of all time, a true validation of the idea of computer games as art. It was also one of the most hilarious things ever made. Check it out if you haven't already. I know this sounds a bit pretentious and high-falutin', but it really was a wonderful little thing, like almost all of the LucasArts games of the time.

And maybe we can convince LucasArts to keep funding the sequel!

Fairly hilarious trailer for said sequel here. If you aren't amused by a rabbit jumping up and down on a guy and yelling, "Why won't you just die?!", well...

The petition currently has over 12,000 signatures, so here's hoping.

I know it's not the Censure Bush petition, or the anti-computer voting petition, or the Millions for Marriage petition (they're pro-gay), or the Protect Mothers Who Remove Children from Domestic Violence petition, but hey, we all got our priorities...

You really should sign that last one, though. Look like they could use the help.
