Another confused census taker?

We can only hope.
―Sam and Max, after receiving a phone call[7]

The character Max belongs to artist Steve Purcell ‘s animate media franchise, Sam & Max, which first found commercial success in 1987 as a full-length comedian series. [ 8 ] Purcell finally went to work for LucasArts as an energizer and began writing Sam & Max comics for the LucasArts quarterly magazine The Adventurer, including respective that parodied Star Wars. In 1993, LucasArts released the first Sam & Max television game, Sam & Max Hit the Road, which Purcell helped design. [ 9 ] Max, sometimes accompanied by Sam, has besides made Easter egg cameo appearances in several other LucasArts video recording games, including Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: The Graphic Adventure, The Secret of Monkey Island, and Day of the Tentacle, among others. [ 10 ] [ 11 ] [ 12 ] Max besides makes cameo in a number of LucasArts Star Wars games, including Star Wars: Dark Forces ( 1995 ), in which the outline of Max ‘s head is visible on a map of the Ice Station Beta facility ; [ 13 ] Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire ( 1996 ), which uses Max ‘s likeness to represent a “ Challenge Point ” icon in the game ‘s Mos Eisley level ; [ 14 ] Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II ( 1997 ) ; [ 2 ] and Star Wars: Rogue Squadron III: Rebel Strike ( 2003 ), which includes Max ‘s point in the “ cockpit “ of the game ‘s un-lockable Buick sport. [ 3 ]
yet 1997 ‘s Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II remains Max ‘s most substantial cameo. In the game, Max is featured in two cameos, the lesser appear in “ charge 9 : fuel Station Launch. ” At the end of the degree, the player can see three images of Max ‘s face on a part of Fuel City ‘s docking align. however, the more significant cameo takes place in “ level 5 : Baron ‘s Hed – The Fallen City. ” If the player moves across the lowest measure of a stairway in the early stages of the grade, a woman in a nearby build up will open a door and leave. If moving cursorily enough, the player can sneak in through the open door. If besides slow, the player can wait for the woman to return and reopen the door. Within the build, standing on a large chair, is Max, armed with a Bryar pistol. If the player interacts with Max, the bunny will help the player throughout the rest of the horizontal surface. Should the player fire on Max, the bunny will return open fire. Players can besides interact with Max once more to activate the “ MaxCam, ” which shows the level from Max ‘s position. [ 2 ] The Dark Forces II strategy guide later identified Max by name and provided tips to help players find the “ Easter testis. ” [ 1 ] Max ‘s physical appearance in the game hews closely to Purcell ‘s original drawings, and his avid wield of a proportionately outsize gun is culled directly from the Sam & Max mythos.

Canonicity

Simon the Killer Ewok is about as canon as the hyperkinetic rabbity thing, Max.
―Leland Chee[15]

Regarding Max ‘s canonicity within the Star Wars Legends continuity, The Dark Forces Saga, a series of plot scenarios written by Jason Fry and Abel G. Peña in 2005, identified one of Kyle Katarn ‘s comrades as a “ brainsick, pint-size lagomorph. ” The same phrase had previously been used to describe Max within Sam & Max Hit the Road, and Peña late confirmed that the lagomorph in question was indeed Max. [ 16 ] Peña intentionally referenced Max in joining to the spy Derrida as a court to the real-world philosopher Jacques Derrida, a Deconstructionist. Peña felt that the message of Deconstructionism as allow when referencing a “ quasi-canonical Easter egg ” like Max because Star Wars continuity, like world, is uncertain and will “ always be undermined. ” [ 17 ] When asked about the canon condition of Simon the Killer Ewok from the 2001 video plot Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds, Leland Chee, coach of Lucasfilm ‘s Holocron continuity database, compared him to Max.
