Sam & Max are coming to the Wii

The big news yesterday was that we finally made the jump to HD in the PixelFlop household. A new Pioneer 50" Plasma TV was delivered in the early afternoon, and the wife came home from Target with a Nintendo Wii shortly after. It was like Christmas in July.

Today, that Christmas just got even better.

IGN just released news that Sam & Max, Freelance Detectives are coming to the Wii.

What a fantastic idea. Point and Click adventures like Sam & Max, Curse of Monkey Island and Day of the Tentacle are amongst my favorite types of games. They've fallen out of favor in the high paced, shoot shoot shoot world of console gaming that dominates this decade, but for my money, they top the list when it comes to enjoyment.

I hope this little experiment proves successful, and we see a Renaissance of adventure gaming on the Wii.
