Second Sam & Max episode on the way

Ongoing misadventures of anthropomorphic crime-fighting duo to continue in Situation: Comedy, debuting on GameTap later this month.

by

After LucasArts released the classic PC graphic adventure Sam & Max Hit the Road in 1993, 13 years passed before the dog-and-rabbit detective team graced the world of gaming once more in Telltale Games' Sam & Max Episode 1: Culture Shock. The wait for more of the unorthodox sleuths' oddball antics won't be nearly as long this time, as Telltale Games has announced that Sam & Max Episode 2: Situation: Comedy will arrive later this month.

Situation: Comedy will premiere on the subscription-based rental service GameTap December 21, and become available for purchase from Telltale Games' official site January 5. Telltale will sell each individual episode for $8.95 on its own, or the first "season" of the series (Episode 1 through Episode 6) as a package for $34.95.

GameTap rocks. There isn't any better way to get old school gaming goodness along with some modern faves. Well worth the cost of admission.

The first episode was absolutely fantastic, i honestly forgot it was a 3d engine at times, I used to play the 3d one to death SOOO much, it was fantastic! "I HATE COUNTRY MUSIC!!" :P heh heh. This game is what Broken Sword 4 SHOULD of been! I still can't believe how excellent the graphical touches in this game are :) Looking forward to part 2 of this :D

Whoo! Played the first episode--it was short and easy but hilarious. Can't wait for the next one to go wide-release (I don't have gametap)

Well that small developer Valve should take some notes on how to do episodic games, two months vs. 6 months to a year. Makes me wonder

I heard they've done horrible sales wise, i just hope telltale doesn't close down. They are one of the last remaining devs who are trying their best to keep the adventure genre alive.

SYdoggXxX, If you order the series (for 34.95) after all the episodes are done you can request a cd version of the game, or you can simply wait until it's done and buy it on a cd.

I hope episode two is good. The first one was ok, but really short and way too easy. The puzzles were not as clever or funny as the ones in the original Sam and Max game. The whole Gametap thing is total crap. What kind of loser is actually useing that service? (sorry imbacon)

If only there was a retail version of this series; I live outside the U.S. and digital purchases aren't an option for me, which is a shame because I found myself enjoying the demo of Episode 1 a lot.
