Sam & Max on general release

With demo version available.

The first instalment in Telltale Games' episodic revival of LucasArts' adventure classic Sam & Max is now available to download and buy on the developer's website.

Up to now, it had only been possible to do that using US-centric digital distribution system GameTap, which will continue to enjoy two-week exclusivity on new releases.

Called Culture Shock, the first episode in the six-long point-and-click series sees the comedy duo teaming up to try and find out why former child stars are wreaking havoc.

It costs US$ 8.95 to buy, but if you prefer you can always try the demo version, which is also available from Telltale's website. Then, if you like it, you can fork over the cash and continue playing.

There's also the option of paying US$ 34.95 for the entire series of six episodes, downloading new ones as they come out. Telltale will even send you a CD of them all when the run concludes.
