The Adventure Company and Telltale Games have partnered to bring the first season of Sam & Max to retail in August. The game, which is currently avaiable from Telltale and Turner’s online game service GameTap, is an episodic adventure currently on its fourth installment.
Over the last two decades, Sam & Max have appeared in a number of formats, including independent comics created by Steve Purcell, an interactive PC adventure game, a Saturday morning cartoon, a webcomic strip, and now innovative episodic games developed by Telltale. The Adventure Company’s Sam & Max: Season 1 release marks this series’ first foray into retail stores since the original LucasArts’ release of Sam & Max Hit the Road.
“The Adventure Company will be an excellent partner for Sam & Max’s path to retail,” said Telltale CEO Dan Connors. “Our internal development studio’s been having a fun time working with Steve’s characters and we’re looking forward to getting the games out to new audiences in the Fall.”
