Along with yesterday's Wallace & Gromit news, Telltale started a deal allowing new newsletter subscribers to get a free copy of Sam & Max: Ice Station Santa or Strong Bad: Dangeresque 3. If you've been wanting to check these games out, free is a great way to do it! laugh

You can sign up for the newsletter here. After you subscribe, on the next page you'll be asked which free game you want. The games are downloadable and you need a 3D video card.

I read the rules and regulations on the site and it looks like it's just for the american public. Could anyone confirm this ?

There's no restriction on location - anyone, anywhere can sign up and get the free game. smile

Cathy, would you mind sending me a PM and letting me know what you saw on Telltale's site that made it seem like registration is US-only? Thanks!

Hi Fov
PM sent. The word Canada is not included.

EDIT.. Ok I downloaded it but I'm having a hard time reading the serial number. I wrote it down and will give it a try later.

EDIT again... I just received an email from telltale and they sent the serial number to me. Good thing because I had one of the numbers wrong.

I just dnloaded Sam and Max - what I dnloaded seems small - 113,326 KB.

Is this normal?

Ice Station Santa should be 105MB. It sounds like your download was incomplete. Try deleting it, clearing your browser's temporary internet files, and downloading again: http://www.telltalegames.com/download/icestationsanta

OK -I went to the above link. Started the dnload - says I'm dnloading 110MB - when the dnload is finished and look where I dnloaded it the size is 113,326 KB again.
Is 110 MB the same as 113,326 KB in size?

Thanks for your help

Retired -- here's a converter. Math is not my strong point, but it actually makes me more confused. luck

I just noticed that this offer expires after February 28, so if you're interested, you might want to take advantage of it sooner rather than later. laugh

I finished the episode of Strong Bad and was very impressed.I laughed out loud more than once. It played beautifuly on my computer. I'm going to be looking into getting the 5 episodes.
Thanks for the link and the fun. I told my friend about it and she downloaded it also. I also thought the extended play was a nice touch.

Cathy bravo

I'm glad you liked it!

You can get the rest of the episodes for a discount ($26 instead of $35) - just enter your order number for the free episode here.

(The same deal applies to Sam & Max, here.)
