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.

There's nothing wrong with linear gameplay, if it suits the game, and the game is enjoyable. Movies are entirely linear by necessity, and there is no shortage of brilliant movies out there (not to mention a very sizable variety of ways of telling the story within the linear movie framework), so there's no fundamental reason why excellent linear adventure games can't continue to be made, and made well.

Having said that, most adventures I can think of have a reasonable degree of non-linearity in that you can usually tackle a number of different available problems in any order at any given time
