Sam and Max: Season 1 to hit retail with bonus content

10:45 AM on 06.07.2007 // Nick Chester

Subscribers of Gametap have known what's up for awhile -- the digitally distributed Sam and Max: Season 1 was a blast for fans of the point-and-click adventure genre. Now that the six episode season has wrapped, Season 1 will be coming to retail this August.

For fans who don't have an Internet connection or whose tin foil hats won't let them use a credit card online, this will be a great opportunity to finally meet the game's wacky characters, like Brady Culture and Ron Workman. For those who have already played the game, however, Telltale Games and publisher Dreamcatcher are including a slew of extras in order to help lubricate the $29.99 out of your wallets:

    * An all new “Making Sam & Max” behind the scenes video
    * A full-sized printed poster featuring artwork by Sam & Max creator Steve Purcell
    * Trailers for all six episodes
    * Previously unreleased character bios
    * Loads of concept artwork
    * Desktop wallpapers
    * An MP3 soundtrack sampler

While the press release (which you can read after the jump) doesn't mention it, GameStop's listing for the title mentions a "comic generator for making your very own Sam & Max comic strips." I smell a Destructoid Sam and Max contest in the near future. Hmmm ...

Sam and Max: Episode 1 ships to retail this August, or you can just bite the bullet (you cheap little freaks) and play it right now on Gametap.

The Adventure Company And JoWooD Announce Bonus Content For Sam & Max: Season 1 Retail Release

Funniest game of the year to retail with a full-size printed color poster and a Bonus CD of extras!

Toronto, Canada; Vienna, Austria. June 7, 2007. After much anticipation, Sam & Max, the legendary dog and rabbit crime-fighting stars, are making their way to all major retail stores worldwide in August 2007 with Sam & Max: Season 1 for Windows® – and they're bringing along a full-size printed color poster and a Bonus CD full of hilarious extras!

This is the stuff of every collector’s dream, with goodies that include:

    * An all new “Making Sam & Max” behind the scenes video
    * A full-sized printed poster featuring artwork by Sam & Max creator Steve Purcell
    * Trailers for all six episodes
    * Previously unreleased character bios
    * Loads of concept artwork
    * Desktop wallpapers
    * An MP3 soundtrack sampler

All of this is included with The Adventure Company/JoWooD retail version of Sam & Max: Season 1 for Windows® releasing to fans around the world in English, French and German!

Sam & Max aren't your average crime-fighting duo. Sam is a six-foot tall canine shamus with a love of justice. Max is hyperkinetic rabbity-thing with a taste for violence. Together, Sam & Max are the Freelance Police, ridding the streets of bottom-feeding sludge one dastardly miscreant at a time. Now you’ll finally be able to learn how this episodic series came together with its bizarre humor, vivid 3D graphics and clever gameplay in the all-new behind the scenes video footage. Hear development secrets about Sam & Max, straight from the mouths of series creator Steve Purcell and members of the Season 1 development team.

“We are very excited to bring Sam & Max: Season 1 to a bigger audience than ever with our Windows® release this summer and can’t wait to give fans the treats they’ve been asking for on the Bonus CD!” said Albert Seidl, President and CEO for the JoWooD Group.

Sam & Max: Season 1, the funniest game in years, will be released worldwide for Windows® in August 2007 for a suggested retail price of $29.99 USD/€29.99.

Why can't we have more Lovecraftian horror games? It's such a great setting, but nobody ever uses it.

Best purchase I've made in a long time. This little remote controlled BB-8 robot by Sphero is amazing. [IMG]http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b321/Felth/bb8%202.jpg~original[/IMG]

Philosophical question: if the only way to get Batman: Arkham Knight to run decently on my laptop is to lower all the settings and have it run windowed, am I really playing it?

I hate when a new game comes out and D-toid gets flooded with stuff about a game I don't know anything about and I'm just stuck here, sitting with myself and my freeware games...

Replaying Tales of Symphonia for the first time in years, I only just now realized how random the plot is. Our goals are decided at Lloyd's whimsy, while we get major revelations just 'whenever'. Still a good game, but I'm proud to be #TeamBatenKaitos.

Today at work, I made a reference to the DK Rap in one of my news pieces. Any day that I get to do that is a good day.

Everyone's playing MGSV...and I've just arrived in Skellige in The Witcher 3. At this rate, I'll get 'round to MGSV when the PS7 arrives.
