How to buy it?!

posted by Mike.Gayner on - last edited - Viewed by 918 users
I was a HUGE fan of the original Sam and Max game, and REALLY want a copy of Culture Shock. However, none of the stores in New Zealand seem to stock it. How can I buy this game? I downloaded the demo and clicked the button to buy the game, and just got a blank screen for ages. What's going on?

And to the publishers - how can you expect a game to be a success when someone has to come on to your forum and ask HOW to buy the game?

  • Which web browser are you using?
  • hmm, I know I had that problem (or at least similar) with Opera 8, but after upgrading to Opera 9 it all worked fine. It's 9.02 though so if you got an earlier version you might wanna try upgrade.

    Or you can use that thing named Internet Explorer that I'm sure you have hidden somewhere =p (I know I have. I have deleted all the shortcuts, but I run it from "Run" and the iexplore command the few times I need it ^^)

    Another Kiwi here - Culture Shock isn't in stores, it's download only. Hopefully (maybe using a different browser) you'll manage to get to the purchase page...

    There's a tech help forum here, maybe others have experienced the same problem and a solution is given (if not, start a new thread);

  • You can also buy the game from this very site, of course. There's this BIG button that says "Telltale Store" on top of your screen. See? :D

  • Isn't Sam and Max USA only?

    Nope. http://www.telltalegames.com/store/samandmax
  • Yes, the store is the easiest way to buy it. If you've already downloaded the trial verison, you can buy it in the store and then unlock it using your order number and the password you created when you placed the order... no need to download again.

    (Click "I've already purchased this" on the first game screen to enter this information and unlock the game.)

    Also, the site works best in Firefox, although we're working on compatibility issues with other browsers.
