About

Sam & Max 203: Night of the Raving Dead is the first adventure game in the series of the same name.

Plot

The storyline follows the adventures of Sam and Max, characters of Steve Purcell's comics. In the game, New York’s streets are flooded with dangerous dancing zombies. Sam and Max are working in the Freelance Police. Their goal is to kill all the zombies and confront their leader, a European vampire. The characters try to find a resolution in Stuttgart, Germany.

Gameplay

The player performs as the anthropomorphic dog Sam and a hare called Max. The player's goal is to solve puzzles - Sam and Max are in fact detectives - and complete various tasks. There are the usual branching dialogues which let the player make decisions, choosing between the given options.

Key features

The game is set in a parody 3D-universe based on typical stereotypes about Germans: Night of the Raving Dead mocks Germans lacking any sense of humor, classic vampire stories like Frankenstein, and the main antagonist, an emo-like vampire. The dialogues between characters have the usual TellTale sense of humor; there are also some plot twists. Jazz soundtracks also complement the game.

Sam & Max: Episode 203 - Night of the Raving Dead reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
"Sam & Max: Season Two: Night of the Raving Dead" is the third Episode of the second Season of the fun-satirical episode Point-and-click adventures. The overturns sadistic Bunny Max and the jovial Dog Sam form a congenial Team. They are freelance police Officers, investigative Detectives and solve every Case with their Firm, however absurd or outlandish. Mechanically, we are in classic Point-and-Click. We (almost) always control Sam, click on Things that all trigger a Comment, stuff some of them into our Inventory, use them with other Things or other Protagonists, and select from multiple conversational Options for the latter. As classic as the Gameplay, so twisted is the Humour. Everything is taken on the Rails here, whether Television Formats or American Presidents. The more abstruse the better. In doing so, the Series doesn't shy away from bad Puns and Calaus. But it is precisely this disrespectful approach to everything and everyone that opens up the Range from sharp Parody to Level-free flat wit. Everything else is subordinated to a good Punchline. And that's exactly what makes for the Wit and Charm of "Sam & Max." As usual, this Episode is not primarily about the Puzzles, but about the anarchist-ironic Humour that always isolates Elements of the Real And parodies them through Overdrawing. The Puzzle Structure is also often similar. In Terms Of content, there are the wildest and most surprising Ideas, but structurally many Puzzles run according to the Motto: Do three or four Tasks and then come back, off. In this Episode "Night of the Raving Dead" goes to Germany, romantic Stuttgart or rather to the Zombie castle inhabited by the eroticized Zombie dandy Jürgen, which comes across as a Mix of Sasha Baron Cohen's Brüno, Kraftwerk and Lagerfeld. What is Jürgen'S Master plan and how to stop his Zombie Army, our Heroes need to figure out. This Episode manages, at least in places, to meet again the overturned Bitterness and absurd Humour that is actually inscribed on the Series, but has been lost more and more as The Episodes have progressed. In any Case, you should play the English-language Version if you don't want to miss Gags. The German Synchro makes an effort, but often-due to numerous Puns that can hardly be translated-has no Chance. The Playing Time of the individual Episodes is neat, because you are busy with each of the five episodes about two Hours. (On Steam, however, you can only buy the whole Season 2 consisting of 5 Episodes anyway). Rating: 7/10 Atmosphere 7/10 Story 7/10 Graphic 7/10 Sound 7/10 Game Mechanics 6/10 Balancing 7/10 Game Pass Conclusion: Stuttgart Snob zombies. 7/10 Overall Rating
