|Sam & Max Save the World|
Since this put an end to the adventure game era at LucasArts, several employees (many of which were on the Freelance Police team) left to form Telltale Games. After the video game rights to the Sam & Max license expired at LucasArts, Steve Purcell granted Telltale Games those rights. After releasing three games, Telltale Games came full circle with the release of the first episode of their new episodic Sam & Max video game series, Culture Shock.
The series was co-financed by GameTap. The games were available on the GameTap service 15 days before they were released on Telltale's online distribution system (which was called at the time Telltale Now). From Abe Lincoln Must Die onwards, Telltale Now season subscribers recieved the games a few days before the public release (8 days early for episode 4, 3 days early for episodes 5 and 6).
The retail versions of Sam & Max Save the World are now out of print. The digital versions can still be purchased. The digital version for PC is available from the Telltale store, Steam, and GOG.com.
