I've just realized something - each game will be 40 MB and there will be five games. Thus, they'll take up 200 MB in total. Assuming buying the five-episode bundle for PC nets the buyer a free disc-based version like with the Sam & Max seasons, this means that they'll be able to put them on a CD rather than a DVD, and even then, that CD would have up to half of the disc's capacity left over, if not more. Perhaps there'll be exclusive Flash cartoons on it? They did that with the Strong Bad Sings CD (there's an exclusive hidden Flash music video on it).

Remember, it's possible that episodes could share content, yet another space saving device. Across 5 episodes, many resources would be reused (eg. wallpaper, character models etc.), so if Telltale feel it's appropriate, they could reduce the size of a whole series even more. The only problem would be whether or not such a system is possible on the Wii.

Culture Shock packed down to something like 70 megs at the time (we've since been able to pack it even smaller). If you think about something like Culture Shock, and then rip out a huge chunk of the filesize spent on textures (including textures for all the lightmap based shadows on every wall) and animation (remember that in Homestar almost nobody has fingers!) you can imagine a game of surprising scope fitting in 40 megs.
Well, this thread is rather old, but I have a question regarding file size on PC.
Just discovered that Episode 3 is of different size in download and disc version: the file 1_sbcg4ap103_pc_data.ttarch is 142.5 MB in download version but only 27.5 MB when installed from DVD! I think I have played the first one. Can anyone who played it in disc version confirm it is not a mistake and nothing is cut from the DVD retail version??
