Steam’s Sam and Max Sale Ends Monday Morning

Steam’s 66% off weekend sale on Telltale’s Sam & Max games, commemorating the release of the first Sam & Max game 25 years go, is set to end Monday (September 17, 2012) at 10am Pacific Time, 1pm Eastern.

The Sam & Max games are humorous graphic adventure games based around puzzles, set in the cartoon world of Sam and Max. You can read more about the episodes that make up each season on the Telltale Games Sam and Max website

Note: Sam & Max: Season One is only for Windows/PCs! You might be able to play it under VMWare or Parallels Desktop, or under Wine or CrossOver, but I don’t know how well it would play. The Complete Pack is listed as Windows only, but you maybe able to purchase it and then download the Mac versions instead, since it’s cheaper to buy the Complete Pack rather than the Mac versions of Season Two and The Devil’s Playhouse (combined are $21.99 versus $14.99 for complete pack). I make no guarantees about that – in the past my Steam purchases where Windows and Mac versions are involved have let me install the Mac versions, but these were different publishers.
