Developer HappyGiant released six minutes of new gameplay footage from Sam & Max: This Time It's Virtual today as part of UploadVR's Winter Wrap-Up, which also provided first looks at The Wizards: Dark Times and Wraith: The Oblivion – Afterlife. Releasing on Oculus Quest sometime in 2021, the game has players help the titular duo try to deal with an alien invasion.

The dog and rabbit have built a freelance police academy in a out-of-business carnival and players must prove their skills in games including hitting beer cans with a baseball bat and using fish to train a gigantic aquatic worm. You'll also have to figure out how to stop demons from rampaging through a supermarket by using items in the environment including squirt guns, food, and sale signs.

Sam & Max Save the World was the first title from Telltale Games, and the characters have been making a resurgence since the studio closed in 2018. This year, the indie studio Skunkape Games released Sam & Max Save the World Remastered for PC and Nintendo Switch. Sam & Max: This Time It's Virtual will be the first VR game featuring the characters. There's been no confirmation so far about if the game will play on Oculus Quest 2, PC VR or PSVR.
