Thanks for the Amazon tip! A discount on each individual episode might be nice, since I'm not sure whether I'm willing to take the full-season plunge.

Edit: Oh, and, um... Arrrrrr.

Thanks for the heads up!

I have been contemplating this for the Wii but for $0 it's completely worth a download.

Bought Monkey Island SE and loving the living hell out of it.

I will download this if the humor is half that.

Does the Telltale one have activation too?

If so I'll just grab the Amazon one, since it also has activation but I don't have to set up another account on Telltale. Doubt I'll like this, but for free... (aside from Riven and an old Star Trek game, I've hated every other point 'n click style adventure game).

Okay, I tried the Telltale version, and it *DOES* have activation. So if you've already got an Amazon account, I guess you might as well just get it there (although then you have to install their DRM client, but...)

Has anyone who got it from TellTale played it and had it work correctly?

Got it through amazon. Surprised to see that this game runs well enough on my super old PC.

Played it just fine on my crappy laptop. Looks wonderful, the only problem was there was a bit of lag with my mouse. I think that was my computers fault, though.

Did you have to install additional direct x stuff?

I let it do that step if it wanted to, but I don't think it actually did anything (might have though).

EDIT: Depends on how old their Direct X redistributable is, I suppose. Microsoft's actually updated Direct X 9 for both XP and Vista regularly, but most people don't know about it, and I've never bothered updating it. I don't even remember that most of the time, since for some unknown reason they don't put it in Windows Update(!)

How does Amazon's DRM work? Is it fairly unobtrusive like Steam (in that yes, you have to be online, but it doesn't screw up your system a million ways)?

Finally got it to work, didn't want to, but installed a shitload of direct x stuff. Doubt I'll ever play it, will probably wait for cheapass full release a while from now. Mouse control seems a bit laggy on mine as well.

Picked up the freebie, but damn. I wish I wasn't super broke. I'd so pick up the special edition on Steam. :(

It didn't work on my desktop, but that computer is like a dinosaur now. It played perfect on my new laptop.

Aye, many thanks! I got me some Sam & Max Episode 2 because I already bought the Monkey Island episodes! Sweet deal! I also bought the LucasArts SE PC version from D2D for $5... I bought the iPhone version when it came out for full price. Yo ho ho!

I think it is faithful to the series. I was turned off by the character design of Elaine- I prefer the Curse of Monkey Island design. But LeChuck art is great and the voices excellent.
The puzzles aren't too unfair or obtuse so far. Though I did have to redo the buried treasure map route way too many times until I figured out it has to be activated first.
Once I finish it, I will probably get the second episode. I hadn't really been planning to get the series- at least not until everything was out, even though I had enjoyed the previous four games.
But giving away the first episode has changed my plans to wait.
