Sam & Max Season Finale on GameTap

GameTap announces Sam & Max: Bright Side of the Moon is now live:

ATLANTA – April 26, 2007 – Today members of Turner Broadcasting’s broadband entertainment network GameTap get exclusive access to the highly-anticipated Sam & Max: Season 1 final episode “Bright Side of the Moon.” This culminates six months and six episodes of hilarious crime-fighting adventure that have raised the bar on innovation in the videogame industry and truly defined episodic gaming.

“Before we embarked on this experiment with Telltale, ‘episodic gaming’ was a concept that no one had ever put terms around,” said Ricardo Sanchez, GameTap’s vice president of content. “We structured Sam & Max: Season 1 in the TV model because it’s a form that people are already familiar with. In the end, it has been a phenomenal success for us both.”

In this, the sixth and final episode of Season 1, Sam & Max embark on a lunar adventure to save the earth from a horrifying fate: an eternity of perpetual bliss. From the first episode of the season, “Culture Shock,” which was named a Top 10 Videogame of 2006 by The New York Times, to “Reality 2.0,” the most recent episode, Sam & Max have fought a wave of bizarre hypnoses that infiltrated the media, the mafia, the United States government, and even the Internet. Now, Sam & Max must destroy the mastermind behind these mind-control schemes once and for all.

The complete Sam & Max series contains six episodes that each stand alone, but that have an overall story arch tying them together. Today on GameTap, all six episodes are available in their entirety, along with on-demand extras like the 1997 Sam & Max hit cartoon series and all-new Sam & Max machinima shorts.

Screenshots and teaser videos from the entire season are available for viewing at and Telltale also offers individual purchase of episodes 1-5 at

I got a year's subscription when Sam & Max Ep1 first went up; the service has an amazing library of games including many old DOS games that just refuse to run on XP and some games that are more or less impossible to find otherwise (I finally got to play Last Express). Some of the console emulation is done a bit iffy, but overall I'd say Gametap is excellent.
