It must a be universal law that every adventure series has to pass through Egypt at some point, and this month it's Sam & Max's turn, as the Freelance Police head to the ancient lands in today's release of The Tomb of Sammun-Mak.
Of course, this is Egypt like nobody else does Egypt. The canine shamus and hyperkinetic rabbity thing find themselves whisked back in time to the early 1900s to play out the adventures of their own great-grandfathers. The Devil's Toybox has been stolen (well, after Sam & Max steal it first), and it's up the mustachioed Sameth and the corduroy-wearing Maximus to track down the culprit on the Disorient Express.
Available today for PC and Mac, The Tomb of Sammun-Mak is currently offered only as part of the full season of The Devil's Playhouse from the official website. The episode is also releasing today in North America on the PlayStation 3, available as a standalone episode through the PlayStation Network. The PS3 version for Europe is expected next Wednesday, May 26th.
