Speaking for myself, I've been thoroughly enjoying the new Sam & Max games. With the first season, I tried the demo for each of them and decided to wait until the retail release of the whole thing. I just want to say that I loved it, absolutely loved it. I used to play the ol' Hit the Road, along with several other Sierra and LucasArts games back in High School and this was a huge blast of nostalgia for me.
For the second season, I played the demo to the first game and said to myself, "Self! There's no way you can wait again for the retail version!" and heartily bought the whole season. Since then, the new episodes have been something I've been looking forward to. I believe that Telltale games has very successfully captured the formula of episodic gaming, something that even a hugely popular company such as Valve has yet to really conquer (how long are we going to have to wait for Episode Three, damnit?!).
With all that said, I'm just curious about how successful the series has been for Telltale. No doubt, it's become their break maker, but has it become more successful than the company has hoped? Less? The series has gotten consistently good reviews, ranging from 7-ish to 8-ish, and I think word of mouth has made the series successful. And Season 2 came out relatively soon after Season 1 was all released (at least in my eyes, after buying the retail copy).
So, I guess I'm just curious to ask to the people working for Telltale how successful a product has the Sam & Max series become? It's clearly been a success, but how successful?
