Default http://www.savesamandmax.com

it had to be done..so i did it.. if every1 can let as many people know about the website..

below is a press release..if people could help me get it to as many sites as possible..especially the sites that ran the sam & max cancellation press release

Savesamandmax.com Press Release

Savesamandmax.com website launched.

In less than a week after Lucasarts announcement that it has stopped production on Sam & Max: Freelance Police a Save Sam & Max Website has been launched. The Site is dedicated to forcing LucasArts to reverse their decision and have Sam & Max 2 finished and released. There was a lot of frustration, anger and resentment after LucasArts shock announcement and the creator of http://www.savesamandmax.com wants to "harness that in a productive way." "The campaign to get this game reinstated has just begun, as a petition approaches 10, 000 signatures, we have a picket line protest being organised to be held at LucasArts Offices in San Rafel, CA." "We also are encouraging everyone to mail their own piece of Sam & Max Fan Artwork to LucasArts to let them know their are Sam & Max Fans out there who would buy this game, contrary to whatever flawed research they have done." "I think its also time for the gaming community to take a stand and let companies like LucasArts know we want original and funny games like Freelance Police." I also challenge Mike Nelson who cancelled the game with that pathetic 2 line quote, to come out and respond to fans passionate showing of support for the game." And what does Sam & Max think of the website created to save the 6 foot dog and 3 foot rabbity thingy...

Sam - "My belief is that it represented the collective sorrow and frustration of all those whose favorite adventure game was steamrolled into the ground by cold, sterile, LucasArts."

Max - "I may weep openly"



Please help spread this press release to every gaming site, news publication possible.

It's "weep openly", man.

Other than that... good effort, I suppose, though LucasArts will never reverse their decision. The best you can hope for is to let them know that a mistake has been made, and I think that's been done already.

A picket line protest eh? Who organised that? How many are expected to show up?

I hope somebody takes a camera along and then posts the pics.

That's probably the idea.

I'd drive into work past a load of CND hippies or a crowd of animal rights types, but would YOU want to drive past a bunch of rabid Sam and Max fans?

If I lived in America I would happily join the picket line. As I don't, could somebody take this picture along with them ?

I love the picket line protest.
Delicious idea. Can't wait to see the evening news,
that would have to be a first!

I wish I lived there so I could help man the barricades. Aww I love direct action.

Re: picket line

Just make sure there's going to be more than 3 guys there or it will just look silly.

What's great is that if you go to http://www.petitiononline.com, they post their top 10 most active petitions. Guess what? Sam & Max 2 is #1. There is also another Sam & Max petition that is #3.

It will. In a nerdy kind of way . The point is, it'll hopefully get their attention. Maybe you can notify the press too?

This is great! The picket line would be cool if there were enough people but if there weren't.....
