Free Telltale Game

I have one coupon for a Telltale game, but since I already own all of their games I can't use it myself. It expires tomorrow. The coupon is for Their store only. Tales of Monkey Island is for Mac and PC now, but if you own a Mac you can use the coupon on any episode and you'll get the Mac version for nothing when it comes out (note that the Bone games and Telltale Texas Hold'Em have not been announced as getting a Mac port in the future).

Since this is so late, I'll do this first come first serve. Here's the coupon BZK-F7H-623-WYN

If you're the lucky person to see this first, just put it in the coupon field when you check out and you won't have to pay anything. Remember that the code expires tomorrow.

Tales of Monkey Island now on Mac, Vote for next game to get a Mac update

Telltale's Mac games page is now up. With it comes the news that Tales of Monkey Island is now available for Macintosh at no additional cost to people who have purchased the PC version. On that page you can also vote for the next Telltale series to get the Mac treatment (Sam & Max, Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People, or Wallace & Gromit). One lucky voter will get their name in the credits of the next Telltale Mac game series.

Also, as a bonus to Mac gamers, according to Adventure Gamers, the Mac version of Launch of the Screaming Narwhal includes voice over work by Earl Boen as Zombie LeChuck. The PC version hasn't recieved the voice update yet.

Pirate God on Wii, Telltale to be at Macworld Expo

The final episode of Tales of Monkey Island, Rise of the Pirate God, is finally available on Wii in North America. European Wii owners will have to wait a bit longer.

Also, Telltale Games will be at the Macworld Expo. There's a lot of rumors going around that Telltale is planning on releasing their back catalog (except for Bone and Telltale Texas Hold'Em) on the Mac. If the Mac Life article is true, Telltale is planning on releasing the MacOS versions on their website at no extra cost together with their PC releases.

This could be good news for Mac users who don't want to worry about using Bootcamp to play the Telltale games.
