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.
