Detective comedy VR game Sam & Max: This Time It’s Virtual! has been dated for launch first on Oculus Quest on July 8, with a PC and PSVR launch early next year.
As was previously announced, the game is an all-new adventure starring the Freelance Police, and puts you as a rookie new recruit. As the titular duo train you up for your first case, you’ll be undertaking a series of challenges and solving puzzles in Sam & Max’s first new adventure in a decade.
Developer HappyGiant has nabbed the services of original creator Steve Purcell to oversee the story and direction. He also provides a voice in a Sam & Max game for the first time. Other series veterans who worked on the game include Peter Chan and Mike Stemmle who both worked on the 1992 original Sam & Max: Hit the Road at LucasArts.
Following the launch on Oculus Quest headsets, the team also intend to release the game for PC and PSVR headsets. All being well, these versions will follow by early 2022.
