Sam & Max: This Time It’s Virtual! launches tomorrow on SteamVR and HTC Viveport

Indie game studio HappyGiant and publisher Big Sugar have announced that Sam & Max: This Time It’s Virtual! will launch tomorrow (Friday, September 10), for SteamVR and HTC Viveport Infinity headsets.

Following its release in July for Oculus Quest, and inclusion in this month’s Venice International Film Festival’s “Venice VR Expanded” showcase, fans will be able to download the game on Steam and the Viveport App store for $29.99 USD.

Sam & Max: This Time It’s Virtual! is an over-the-top action-adventure VR title featuring Steve Purcell’s irrepressible dog with a hat and hyperkinetic rabbity-thing. It’s the duo’s first game in more than a decade and the pair’s first foray into Virtual Reality.

This time our dynamic duo is using the incomprehensible magic of virtual reality to invite the player into their off-kilter world for a furious day of monster-slaying, obstacle courses, responsibly discharged firearms, and, of course, saving the entire freaking world. Sam & Max: This Time It’s Virtual! mixes puzzles and escape rooms with challenges of skill and classic point-and-click adventure sure to put even the heartiest Freelance Police cadet through their paces.

Brought to life by an all-star team of Sam & Max veterans, Sam & Max: This Time It’s Virtual! features all of the quips and crime-fighting adventure mixed with immersive action only possible with VR.

Gameplay Highlights

  • Experience the two-fisted japes and tomfoolery of internationally beloved icons Sam & Max in mind-melting virtual reality!
  • Push yourself to be the best of the best of the middling, as a dog and a naked rabbity thing harangue and cajole you through a bewildering assortment of Freelance Police Academy training challenges.
  • Discover the horrible and socially relevant secrets lurking behind, under, and within Cap’n Aquabear’s rotting theme park!
  • Give evil scientists and demonic trespassers their just desserts… with sprinkles!

Immersion so real you can feel Sam’s breath on your neck!
