Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse

Episode 1
April 15th 2010 NA/EU

The new season of Sam & Max begins soon and we here at IGN were lucky enough to get an early copy of the PC version. Having enjoyed the first two seasons, in which the deranged duo successively skewer Santa, cyberspace and the self-help phenomenon, I was even more excited by the trend in this newest season. This season, The Devil's Playhouse, lets Sam and Max tromp all over the clichés and conventions of the paranormal. From the Twilight Zone-inspired narration to the alien super monkey to the mysterious mole cults below the streets, this season is aimed right at my heart.
