CG writes: "Adventure games have changed very little since the days of King's Quest and Maniac Mansion. Combining items with other items, stealing everything that isn't nailed down by the developer, simple dialogue trees...it's been the same formula for decades. And as much as I've rejoiced at the second comings of Monkey Island and Sam & Max, I have to admit that the formula was starting to get tiresome. But just when I think developer Tell Tale Games has settled into a nice, profitable niche, they decide, "Aw what the hell, let's throw a wrench in the ol' formula." Thus begins Sam & Max Season 3: The Devil's Playhouse."
