As detectives working for the independent police, the protagonists are involved in a number of seemingly unconnected cases, which however, make up an extensive intrigue threatening the whole world.
The game is divided into six episodes. In the first episode, Sam and Max have to solve the riddle of former childhood stars who were hypnotized and now sow terror in the city.
