Telltale Games put Sam & Max on hold for a little while there, tending to the needs of Monkey Island fans the world over. Now that series is done, however, it's back to the dog & rabbit show.

A new site has popped up over on Telltale's domain, teased at the conclusion of the fifth and final Monkey Island episode. It's got Sam, Max and a prominent 2010 all over it, along with some concept art showing a heavy dose of sci-fi and just a hint of time travel, given Sam's rather dapper attire.

In addition to the visual clues, there's also some audio playing over the art, suggesting that Telltale's next Sam & Max may not be your average point-and-click adventure game, instead featuring gameplay where you're given a lot more direct control over events.

I remember the old Sam & Max was great...however I lived overseas at the time and played it in French!

Just got Season 1 a couple weeks ago, and have completed only 2 of 6 episodes....I guess I better step it up and finish this and Season 2 before this next installment comes around!

I love Sam and Max for the sheer nostalgia, which brings me to my final point.

PLEASE don't change the gameplay too much - it's great as is, in a retro old-school way (can play with one hand!) No need to try to FPS it or anything.

Also, I would love a new Grim Fandango! Anybody else?
