Update: Looks like someone had the ESRB remove the rating.
Based on this latest leak from the ESRB, it looks like Telltale is bringing their Sam and Max series over to PSN.
This is a “point-and-click” adventure game in which players control private detectives, a wily dog named Sam and a sarcastic rabbit called Max, through a comical episode of mystery case-solving. The storyline is infused with one-liners and running jokes that are based largely on “play-on-words” suggestive innuendo; for example, the “penal zone,” “the carefully placed rat-dropping,” the “bowel-tingling climax.” Some of the stronger innuendo includes a line about fetishes and how “touching” is a character’s “third favorite thing to do.” The heroes sometimes use an exaggerated-sized bazooka to threaten a villain; they may also shoot an alien enemy in the back of the head, which only causes a scratch. And one sequence depicts a man’s face falling into a bowl of spaghetti, revealing a “cartoony” axe sticking out of his head. The game contains a few references to alcohol; for example, lines about mixing margaritas or “the drunken revelries of toothless secessionists.” Characters sometimes use the words damn and hell in the dialogue
The series will be released as episodes, just like on XBLA and WiiWare. Once we get more info on this game will we will definitely keep you posted.
