More Sam & Max Goodness On The Way

More Sam & Max Goodness On The Way

Telltale Games and GameTap announced that Sam & Max episodic game series will return this fall for another round of online mayhem.

Sam & Max Season Two follows the highly successful and critically-acclaimed debut that ran from Fall 2006 through Spring 2007. Each episode will premiere exclusively for play on GameTap, followed by a downloadable release on Telltale's website the next day (instead of first season's usual 15 days delay).

"Season One was a great success, but it's just a starting point for us", says Telltale's CEO Dan Connors. "The episodic model presents so many opportunities to innovate and engage the audience in brand new ways. Just wait until you see what Telltale and GameTap have in store with Season Two".

Sam & Max Season Two will feature the same quick wit and bizarre scenarios Telltale's team and Sam & Max creator Steve Purcell delivered the first time around - and more. "We're sticking with the dramatic structure and accessible gameplay style that are working so well, focusing on telling crazier stories, and telling them better", says Telltale's design director Dave Grossman. "You'll see some changes to the world; improvements that were born out of player feedback and our own desire to create the smoothest and most entertaining experience possible".

Some of these changes are evident in the first Season Two render, released today, which is set in Stinky's, the diner down the street from Sam & Max's office that remained closed for the entire first season. Additional game assets, including glimpses of brand new characters and environments, will be revealed at San Diego Comic-Con starting tomorrow at the panel, Episodic Games and Comics â€" Made for Each Other (11:30-12:30 in room 1AB).

Sam & Max Season One is currently available at Telltale Games and GameTap as well as other download services, and will be coming to retail stores in August courtesy of The Adventure Company in North America and JoWooD in Europe.
