Fan calendar project to support Child’s Play charity

A group of talented artists from the Sam & Max community have grouped together in order to support the charity Child’s Play, an organisation set up by the founders of the Penny Arcade comic in order to deliver toys to children’s hospitals worldwide.

The artists, including users like Hayley the Hedgie and Rubygloommel who feature on this very site’s Fan Art page (hint hint!), have decided to create a calendar that’ll run from February 2011 to January 2012. They have set up a blog to show off their art as well as to publish news and answer questions about the project.

Providing lawyers don’t bust down their doors and shine lights into their eyes, the calendar should be coming together soon and available to buy (with all proceeds going to Child’s Play) or in a downloadable PDF file. Head over to their blog and see what’s what.

Devil’s Playhouse collector’s DVD shipping soon

If you ordered The Devil’s Playhouse collector’s DVD back when it first came up for pre-ordering on Telltale’s site, you may be wondering where it’s got to. Well, the wait is now over! The DVDs have been sent to Telltale’s fulfilment centre and should be landing on your doormats starting next week (along with any other merchandise that was on hold with it!).

On their blog, Telltale showed off a preview of some of the outtakes you can expect to see on the DVD, along with trailers, audio commentaries and of course the five episodes themselves. You can see the preview clip embedded in the full post below.

Still no sign of the soundtrack…
