Sam & Max Save the World · Episode 1: Culture Shock

Sam & Max Save the World is a series of graphical adventure games developed by Telltale Games and published by The Adventure Company and JoWooD Productions in 2006 and 2007. Originally released as Sam & Max: Season One, it’s the first of three seasons and contains six episodes: “Culture Shock”, “Situation: Comedy”, “The Mole, the Mob, and the Meatball”, “Abe Lincoln Must Die!”, “Reality 2.0” and “Bright Side of the Moon”.

Sam & Max Save the World originates from Sam & Max: Freelance Police, a graphic adventure game that was developed by LucasArts until it was cancelled on March 3, 2004. Disappointed by this decision, some of the former Freelance Police development team formed Telltale Games in June 2004 to continue developing the sort of adventure games that LucasArts no longer wished to produce.
