Sam And Max for PC Launches Oct 17 on Gametap, On Sale Nov 1

Sam and Max Take Over The World

We all knew the takeover was coming, we just didn’t know when - now we have a date. On October 17th, Sam and Max Episode 1: Culture Shock will debut on Gametap, with regular episode updates following every month. The title will be exclusive to Gametap for 15 days, after which the episodes will be available for download from Telltale Games’ website. 15 days isn’t that much longer to wait, but Turner Broadcasting (owner of Gametap) is doing all they can to convince you to sign up for their subscription-based service.

Straight from the press-release:

“Gamers get to play the new episodes of Sam & Max first on GameTap, where the whole Sam & Max experience is enriched with additional amazing content,” said Ricardo Sanchez, GameTap Vice President of Content. “Telltale and GameTap are also co-producing new animated machinima “shorts,” which will premiere in November as a prelude to the second game episode, with more shorts airing between monthly episodes to give Sam & Max fans a regularly scheduled fix. With the new machinima shorts and a behind-the-scenes documentary that brings them inside ‘The Making of’ the new Sam & Max game, this exclusive Sam & Max experience adds that much more value to the monthly subscription.”

As a huge fan of the old-school Kings Quest-esque point-n-click adventure games, this might be the best thing to happen to the genre since Grim Fandango.
