Telltale is quite the unique studio, being one of the pioneers behind the “Adventure Game renaissance”, delivering solid games such as Sam and Max, Tales of Monkey Island and Back to the Future among many others. But they have also been pioneers of the digital format, Telltale started exploring the option of selling your titles through digital means long before the majority even knew it was an option. Each of the studios games have been sold through an episodic format, similar to television. Each episode is several hours in length, will only set you back a few bucks, and are released every couple of months.
