Bad Brains and Sam & Max?

The Wolfgang Kierdorf Q&A on Adventure Gamers talks with the CEO of Bad Brains about their plans to revive the Adventure genre with projects like A Vampyre Story, I-Jet, and (no kidding) The Orgastic Four ("a mix of The A-Team, a 70's porn movie and The Godfather"). The conversation also probes for confirmation of rumors that they are working on acquiring the rights to Sam & Max: Freelance Police, receiving a somewhat encouraging response:
No comment (I signed an NDA). All I can say is: yes, we are talking to LucasArts about a game that might involve animals, but that's all folks! I guess we will see what´s happening in March 2005 at the latest.

Looks like they changed it voluntarily, not for legal reasons.
OOOPS, I guess if I had read the whole article I would have come to the mention of some vague legal issue.

"We wanted to have a name that would be more universal and more understanding and wouldn't alienate anybody," says mellow-sounding vocalist H.R. (Human Rights) from California, explaining the band's switch from Bad Brains to Soul Brains. "We wanted to erase the bad."

Hippies. They're everywhere. They wanna save the earth, but all they do is smoke pot and smell bad.

LOL I find it highly ironic that this company can use the name Bad Brains, and the actual band that invented the name in the 80's Bad Brains, due to legal reasons, had to change their name to Soul Brains.

Hell, if they're gonna do 70s softporn, why not buy the LSL license from Venvendi and fix THAT up, while they're at it?

Good luck to 'em! Hope they're not blowing smoke, or I'm gonna be pissed...

And they better have Steve Purcell's involvement!

Sam & Max: The Return of the Sith? (knowing Lucasarts games....)

I hope that if they are doing Sam & Max 2, they can do it justice.

First off, I place lawyers, CEOs, and politicians in the same class of outright liars.

But. This guy sounds like someone I'd have a beer with (A good GERMAN beer! Heil! oops...). If it isn't an act, he loves the same adventure games so many of us do, and he wants them back.

God Bless Him if he pulls it off, even if he can't get the actual licenses and just makes good adventure games.

May he BURN in the darkest nether-regions of Tartarus (in the ice, for you Dante fans) while being impaled up the ass by pole made from the bones of Lucasarts corpse if he's just telling us what we want to hear.

Speaking of Euro-adventure games, WTF is my Longest Journey II???!??!
