TAC Announces Sam & Max: Season 1

Today is a good day for traditional point-and-click adventure game fans, as The Adventure Company has announced a new partnership with Telltale Games to bring the first season of Telltale’s Sam & Max episodic series to traditional retail. Previously only released as downloadable games on GameTap and Telltale’s website, the first season of Sam & Max adventures encompasses six episodes (two of which haven’t been released yet), and TAC’s Sam & Max: Season 1 will bundle all six episodes into one for a worldwide retail box release this August.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be working with Telltale and the Sam & Max franchise,” said Richard Wah Kan, President and CEO of The Adventure Company. “With such a rich history behind the Sam & Max name and the tremendous following of ardent Sam & Max fans, we’re proud to play a part in the rebirth of such a legendary franchise.”

“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.”

Pricing details for Sam & Max: Season 1 were not provided in today’s announcement, but considering the downloadable season set goes for $34.95 I’d imagine that’d be the boxed version’s price as well. Once more info comes along we’ll let you know, but for now have a looksy at some newly released screenshots.
