All New Episodic 'Sam & Max' Comes To GameTap

The Sam & Max series is a crime-fighting adventure structured like a TV season, each of the episodes has its own self-contained plot while together they form part of a season-long mystery, drawing in the player with great characters and multiple intertwined plot lines, building to a high-stakes climax in the season finale.

At GameTap’s E3 booth (South Hall #1078), fans of “Sam & Max” can view a trailer that provides a sneak peek of what’s to come. There is even a special poster designed by series creator Steve Purcell which fans can obtain by taking the GameTap Aptitude Test. Visitors can also sign up for a chance to win an Alienware computer. For those who cannot attend E3, the trailer will be available on GameTap TV and on the Telltale website at later in the week.

The new “Sam & Max” series marks GameTap’s first outing as a producer. Also an industry first is the introduction of a brand new title on GameTap’s broadband network. GameTap now boasts more than 500 video game titles as well as original video programming, music channels and thriving online communities.

“GameTap is all about great games, so we’re thrilled that the first GameTap-produced title and the first brand new game to debut on our service is a ‘Sam and Max’ episodic series,” said Ricardo Sanchez, GameTap’s vice president of content. “We’re also very excited to be working with Telltale Games to pioneer episodic game development.”

"GameTap is a great fit for Sam & Max," said Telltale CEO Dan Connors. "They have a tremendous amount of respect for the series, and their online channel makes them an ideal partner for episodic content. We look forward to our collaborations for accelerating innovation in the interactive entertainment space."

With its unique visual style and clever storylines, the “Sam & Max” franchise has amassed a devoted following in comic book, animation, and video game circles. By coming to GameTap, the “Sam & Max” legacy will continue to grow and thrive in the bold new frontier of broadband entertainment.

“Sam & Max” will join GameTap’s extensive library of on-demand content that now boasts more than 500 video game titles as well as original video programming, spanning music, animation, reality shows and more, all of which targets followers of the pop-culture driven video game lifestyle. Telltale is continuing to release new “Sam & Max” content at its website on a regular basis, including the serialized webcomic story which began last winter, collectible prints signed by Steve Purcell, t-shirts and a completely new cartoon strip generator, which it has posted to the site today.
