Telltale Games has announced a Wii version of its episodic PC series Sam & Max, with plans to release the first six episodes together as Sam & Max Season One in Fall 2008, to be published by Dreamcatcher/The Adventure Company in North America, and by Jowood in Europe. Telltale calls it "part of a continuing effort to extend episodic gaming to new audiences and platforms." The PC series, born of franchise creator Steve Purcell's indie comic in 1987, has produced two seasons of episodes with delivery service GameTap, through Telltale's own website, and at retail. The Sam & Max episodes feature a dog in a suit and a rabbit-like animal as "freelance police," tasked with solving mysteries with offbeat humor. Telltale says that overwhelming demand for a console version of the series led it to focus on Wii development. Said Telltale in a statement, "Nintendo's Wii is a perfect fit for the Sam & Max games. The series' story-driven gameplay and episodic structure has often been favorably compared to TV sitcoms. The new Wii version will present Sam & Max in a format that can be enjoyed from the comfort of the living room, either alone or with a group of friends—a setting perfectly suited for this kind of experience. The game's easy-to-use interface has a low learning curve, making it ideal for the Wii's broad consumer audience."
