Jared Emerson-Johnson reunites with Sam and Max

Sam and Max

Fifteen years after Telltale Games released the beloved game series Sam and Max, some former Telltale team members got together as Skunkape Games to remaster the titles, and that included the games' original composer Jared Emerson-Johnson. Jared says these soundtracks were some of his favorites to write, and, as a composer not that far into his career, he learned a lot in the process.

The remastered music includes performances by some of the original musicians, who were happy to return for a second pass at Jared's film noir-inspired soundtrack.

So far, the team has remastered Sam and Max Save the World, and Sam and Max: Beyond Time and Space, and Jared is currently working on refreshing the music for a third release. Jared's soundtracks are available on Bandcamp.

all tracks composed by Jared Emerson-Johnson
