Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space (also known as Sam & Max: Season Two) was the third game in the Sam & Max series. It was a five episode adventure game released by Telltale Games from November 2007 to May 2008 on Windows, first on GameTap, and later on the Telltale Store, GOG.com, and Steam, as well as at retail by Telltale Games and Atari, S.A..

The entire season was released for Xbox Live Arcade on Xbox 360 on October 14, 2009, and through the PlayStation Network on PlayStation 3 on October 17, 2009, at retail for Wii on March 9, 2010, and on iOS from February 2012 to April 2012.

It was released on Xbox One through backward compatibility on June 25, 2016.

Development

Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space was developed with many improvements upon the first season, as gathered by Telltale from fan feedback.

Changes from the first season

Sam now could run across the screen by double-clicking the left mouse button. The locations are more varied than the first season, and Sam & Max visit more exotic locales this time around. There is a different driving mini-game in each of the episodes in this season, and decals collected in one episode are carried into the next.

Release

The series was co-financed by GameTap. The games were available on the GameTap service one day before they were released on Telltale's online distribution system (which was named, at the time, Telltale Now).
