Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse is a graphic adventure video game developed by Telltale Games. It is the third "season" of the Sam & Max episodic series created by Telltale Games, following Sam & Max Save the World and Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space. The first episode was released as one of the first apps for the iPad on April 2, 2010, and was released on April 15, 2010 for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and the PlayStation 3, the first Telltale game to appear on that platform.

In The Devil's Playhouse, Sam and Max encounter an ancient artifact that gives Max psychic abilities that allow the two to fend off against "the strongest and strangest foes the Freelance Police have ever faced". These events lead the two to encounter "intergalactic warlords and eldritch gods, under-dwellers and scholars of the arcane", all seeking to wield a power to control all of space. Each episode seems to be based on different movie genres and styles, such as science fiction, adventure serials and film noir.
