Telltale Tell All With New Poker Game

We had already posted about a mystery Telltale game that apparently has an all-star cast. Well, the developer has unveiled the name of the game and confirmed the list of characters, but little else about the game.


Titled Poker Night at the Inventory, the game is, er, about poker. Sitting around the table are the Max (of Sam & Max fame), Heavy (the Russian heavy weapons guy from Team Fortress 2), Strong Bad (the antagonist of the Homestar Runner series of web cartoons and the main character of Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People) and Tycho of Penny Arcade. I believe the inventorymight refer to the Team Fortress 2 inventory with the characters wagering the stuff within in. Perhaps Natascha will make an appearance? The game’s descriptive blurb has very little to say about the game but that:-

Prepare for a different kind of poker night in a very different kind of club. In Poker Night at the Inventory, you’ll deal with Penny Arcade’s clever, cunning Tycho, Team Fortress 2′s hulking Heavy, Homestar Runner’s self-proclaimed awesome iconStrong Bad and the hyperkinetic rabbity-thingfrom Sam & Max. These characters come together in ways some never thought possible, in a setting few would have predicted. You’ll experience a new style of poker, particularly when hands don’t go the way of the other fiery competitors at the table.

It is available as a pre-order on Steam as well as the developer’s own website, slated for a fall 2010 release. Will you, or won’t you purchase this poker game with a [pretty obvious] twist?
