Let's Play Sam & Max Hit The Road - Saving The Podiatrically Gifted

Hello Dwellers and Welcome To The Basement! 

Tonight I did a live stream continuing the adventures of Sam & Max in 'Hit The Road', which basically is the second half of the game. Picking right up where we left off last week (which you can view HERE).

This portion of the game basically is finding Shuv-ol (Doug The Moleman's Uncle) at the Mystery Vortex, and tacking down Bruno, which leads to Frog Rock and Bumpusville. And I have a bit of a fun with this, namely that Shuv-ol is clearly someone who grew up in the 1960s... and he's giving 'magic powder' to our heroes that if you use it as directed, something wonderful happens... and with that context, yeah 'tripping balls' seems about right.

The trip to Bumpusville is great, mainly because I love Conroy's little song about being 'lord of nature', and the gratuitous references to Star Wars and Indiana Jones, cause this game was published by LucasArts which also owned Star Wars and Indiana Jones... and of course this is where we finally catch up to Bruno and Trixie and learn about the Bigfoot Convention, where the story comes to its conclusion... the Sasquatches are endanger of becoming extinct due to man's rapid expansion over the centuries, and something needs to be done, the only clues are four totem poles with clues that aren't quite so obvious as first...

But since I memorized playing this game as a kid, I was gathering the items needed through the game... so if you watch both parts (or if you get the game through you can get the hint book in PDF form) you'll know what to do.

Not sure if I'm going to do a live stream next week... if I do it may be for Star Trek Online and the Risan Vacation.
