Based on Steve Purcell's anthropomorphic detective duo, the game launched on MS-DOS in November 1993 (we can't seem to find the exact date, unfortunately). It would come to Apple Mac two years later.
Hailed as a humourous classic upon release, the game is loosely based on the "On the Road" comic book and sees the two characters journey across America in search of a missing bigfoot. Sam & Max Hit the Road uses LucasArts' famous SCUMM adventure game engine, as well as its interactive music engine, iMUSE.
The game would get a CD-ROM release with full voice acting, with Bill Farmer and Nick Jameson providing the voices of Sam and Max, respectively.
