Sam & Max Save the World is one of Telltale's first episodic titles, with the stories written by the creators of the Sam & Max: Freelance Police cartoon (which had ended in 1998 but gained a cult following). Continuing in the footsteps of the duo's first (and only prior) game, Sam & Max Hit the Road, Save the World is a point-and-click adventure with lots of silliness and snark.
The game has lots of unused dialogue and graphics in the files, some of which indicate that there were some rewrites and last-minute changes to the story.
