It just wouldn't be Christmas without a few brightly wrapped presents beneath the tree, a row of stockings hung neatly by the fireplace, and of course a wisecracking canine shamus and hyperkinetic rabbity thing speeding to the North Pole in a DeSoto. You're on your own for the first two, but the latter is now underway, as the second season of Sam & Max has kicked off today with the launch of Ice Station Santa on GameTap.
In the season's holiday-themed first episode, there's trouble in Santa's workshop, and it's up to Sam & Max to find out why the jolly old elf is now packing heat and delivering nasty presents. Not only does the fate of Christmas hang in the balance, but delivering mayhem and destruction is the job of the Freelance Police, after all.
Beginning a pattern that will run throughout the five episodes of Season Two, Ice Station Santa is available today exclusively on GameTap, and tomorrow the game will be available for worldwide purchase and download from Telltale's website.
