Telltale Games are currently the biggest proponent of the once almost dead ‘point and click adventure’ genre. During the 1990s, when computers got powerful enough to handle good 3D graphics, all of a sudden the genre went in a spiral of decline, leaving a generation of gamers pining for the likes of Monkey Island, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: The Graphic Adventure (as James mentioned recently) and Broken Sword.
Bringing the popular Sam and Max series back was a great move by Telltale, who have now released 11 episodes of the comedic graphic adventure. More recently they’ve started a series of Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People, which again mixes humour and adventure in short episodes.
So it’s great news that for the price of an email registration, you can have a free copy of either Sam & Max: Ice Station or Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People: Dangeresque 3. My tip? Register twice with two email addresses, and you can get both! Here’s the link to the registration page
