  1. Sure, but spokes model "Stu" (supporting actor in 'SPEARE!') even gets a full name - Stu Boyle.
  2. I always assumed "Skully" was the pirate who's head got knocked off in the beginning cutscene with LeChuck. You know, the "Aw, how romantic...Ship Ahoy!" guy. Looking at the full credits though, I find it interesting that he got a name, but Minnie Goodsoup and Charles De Goulash are just "Ghost Bride" and "Ghost Groom".
  3. It's funny you bring up the jewel case vs the sleeve. I recently was going through some items and found that I have somehow acquired two CD copies of DOTT - one with the jewel case and one with the sleeve. I don't know when I got a second version or how, because I originally had bought only the triangle box - and yes, the flimsiness in the photo above seems comparable in quality to mine.
  4. Sorry, my previous post probably wasn't clear. Season1 always was only released on Windows (and I also still have my copy of that too), I'm just hoping that if the other two get made they don't forget about the Mac version too.
  5. I'm really excited for this! And I paid full-price because I hope it's successful enough to convince them to do the other seasons as well. I had actually just (like a week before the announcement) re-purchased all 3 seasons from Steam since I discovered that I can't get Season 2 to run - because I had it direct from TTG (and it's not a DRM-free version). Then discovered that I can't get the Steam version to work on my current computer - because I'm running Catalina (and I can't downgrade for other reasons), and I can't run it on my old computer - because the OSX is too old and doesn'
  6. I thought this was great! I especially enjoyed his discussion about Sam and Max: Freelance Police - which I admittedly didn't know too much about. Also, I didn't realize that so much of it was done at time of cancellation. Wild. Also, Mike showed up in the chat before he appears on screen (29:45). I really liked the wording of his response to a question about the commercialism theme of EMI and what drove that decision. I'm betting some people missed it because they skipped forward so, see below:
  7. Agree - really surprised this is the choice from EMI. That game had a lot of branding opportunities, but this is what they went with? I can come up with a bunch of 3D things: The monkey head stein? Or a Starbuckaneers cup? Something from Planet Threepwood maybe? The Dainty Lady? A bucking manatee? A gubernatorial seal? A mini Mega Monkey or Statue Lechuck? Heck, if it had to be something on paper - I would rather have the painting of the Harbour Mistress. Love your idea for the navigation recipe!
  8. @ATMachine This was my initial thought too - but I can't seem to find a photo of it online to confirm. The only ones I can seem to even track down are two from this fan solution site where it does look like it says "Badass" not "Bronze". Seems like a weird thing to change if incorrect. My PC is in storage at the moment, so I'm not able to boot up the old game to confirm though, so happy to have someone provide the actuals!
  9. I've just completed it! Overall, this was a really fun game. I found it to be funny and charming. I loved the tabloid stories and inspiration. I grew up hearing a lot of these sort of stories so it all felt really familiar to me - in the best way possible. Also there was a lot of the dialogue that wound up making me smile. If I were to offer someone playing for the first time some advice: - Use the READ function on everything - some things may surprise you. - Save often, especially so that you can: - Try multiple different solutions or find little jokes.
  10. For reference for others: just tried to re-install mine on this Mac running on Catalina (10.15.6) - once I open the installer it just has a big cross-out through the application and an error that the dev needs to update the app to work with this version of OS. Somewhere I've got my other one running on....something old. I can give it a try tonight.
  11. Perfect! Thanks OzzieMonkey. Guess I have some more exploring to do...
  12. Alright - I give. It's been about a week on this one thing and I need a hint - but I'm worried about looking up anything because I don't want any actual details. If anyone either knows Zak well - or doesn't mind looking up the answer for me and letting me know if I'm on the right track ... I would be eternally grateful. Spoiler, just because I've done this to myself: I did a test run of a couple of maze areas and found my way in / out without much issue .... and without actually making a map. So far, I have learned that my pen/paper map-making skills are incredi
  13. Nice! That shirt is really fun! I definitely feel you on having lost things in various moves. Most of my favourite swag is gone after moving 7 times in 10 years. Looking forward to seeing those sketches! I tried to look back and see if there was an old thread and all I saw was one where people mentioned these things...I can do another scan later and link it here. I didn't want to add this to the actual LEC collection thread - since I feel like a bunch of the stuff people might have are unofficial items. Also, maybe someone can refresh my memory...did Mojo ever
  14. In my quest for something specific (an image of the official MI sweatshirt mentioned here ), I accidentally stumbled upon this monstrosity and you are the only folks I know that will understand how much I don't like it. Here's the image for those who don't want to view the link: I'm definitely not a fan of whatever this is. So instead - Let's take the opportunity to see ACTUAL cool Mojo-related merch. Post your pics or links. P.S. @Jake did you actually get one of those official sweatshirts? Can we see a pic if you still hav
  15. Good to know! I'm familiar with "Save Early, Save Often" (I came up with Sierra and LucasArts side-by-side), and I expected it to have some dead-ends but I'll keep more on top of it now that you both say that. Also, thanks for the heads-up about mazes. I will make sure to have a lot of pencil/paper at the ready too. I'm looking forward to doing this "the old fashioned way". Bit of an attempt to jumpstart that part of my brain towards creative problem-solving.
  16. I've decided to finally play through Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders. This will be my first time ever playing. I'm feeling a bit rusty at adventuring and honestly don't know much about the game. I'm mostly just hoping I can do it without a walk-through - even if it will take me a long time. Just wondered if there were any specific tips or things I need to know before this endeavour? But please no spoilers! [Or use the spoiler tag, I'll happily read them after I finish.] And yes, I know there's a review and feature on Mojo about it - I haven't read them and I'm
  17. I think the VR market is ever expanding, especially as more systems are released and prices decrease for the hardware. A friend who has an HTC Vive had over 200 games for it last time I saw him (sometime last summer). And I know the PSVR received a lot of praise at one point. But I find it really interesting that within this thread there's already 4 of us that won't be playing this release because it's VR. I don't know about you lot but for me it's more of a medical reason rather than access to a system. While this may alienate some die-hard fans (like us), it might open up
  18. OK, now having watched the extended trailer a few times... Some general thoughts: It seems you'll be playing as a 3rd party joining the Freelance Police as a cadet recruit. So, not controlling them, but interacting with them. I think this lends itself well to S+M with their regular breaking of the 4th wall and the (sometimes?) unpredictable nature of how they might interpret your action requests (I'm thinking back to HtR with the dialogue being symbols rather than word-for-word line reads). Plus, why would anyone want to only play as either Sam or Max when you can get to see
  19. Yikes, poorly written copy, but interesting idea. I feel like there's always been a desire in S&M for the VR experience. Sadly, I'm not able to play VR so I guess this one won't be for me. Also, found the trailer: https://www.ign.com/videos/sam-and-max-gamescom-reveal-teaser
  20. THANK YOU! This literally happened to me last night. I was too exhausted to look into a work around. Incredible timing.
  21. It's how I received it as a child. I didn't realize until MUCH later in life that they didn't all come like that!
  22. Great collection! Especially love seeing that MM box. I was thinking about this the other day. I know most of my boxes are gone, but I think my DOTT triangle box might still be in my parents' basement.
  23. There's an automatic trigger of the newspapers: One always appears when speaking with Dr. Fred in the lab: Bernard: "We HAVE to do something!" Fred: "What do you suggest College boy?... " Bernard: "How about catching Purple Tentacle?" Fred: "He's long gone, probably taking over the world as we speak. " <Newspaper appears> Fred: "Soon we'll all be speaking - well, English I guess." I assumed this was written directly into that part of the dialogue. I have hit and miss luck with the others, I've been playing with to see if they trigger,
  24. I'm not 100% that it's Rush, but there are a few things that made me think it could be: - He was already nationally popular by the early '90s - He's often been characterized with small facial features on a larger head (esp if you look up photos of him circa 1990) - The writing definitely says "RUSH" but the second part is throwing me. It could be RID4 or BID4...It could even be RIDE... or it could be nothing? I thought at first maybe it was supposed to read "BUSH" for HW, but he was never a big guy so I crossed that off my list.
  25. Thanks, @Bennyboy! Very glad to know I caught them all this go through. The Rush reference isn't in the text it's the visual of the man in the "Humans Now Slaves" paper. I'm very curious as to why it would be him featured here.
