Last week, the studio responsible for Sam & Max and an upcoming game (or games) based on Jurassic Park, Telltale Games, tossed out a brief and mysterious teaser for an unannounced mashup game starring Team Fortress 2's Heavy, Penny Arcade's Tycho, Homestar Runner's Strong Bad, and Sam & Max's psychotic bunny, Max. That game was revealed this morning as Poker Night at the Inventory, a poker game that stars all of the above.
Telltale says Poker Night will be "more than just another poker title," and it's hard to argue with that. In addition to straight-up poker, the game will feature a cast of voiced and established characters, unique tells, and dynamic reactions.
Poker Night is the second title in Telltale Games' "pilot" program, which kicked off earlier this year with the release of Graham Annable's superbly atmospheric, yet soul-crushingly flawed Puzzle Agent. Poker Night is expected to release later this Fall on the PC and Macintosh for five bucks. You can pre-order the game now via its Steam page and save 10-percent off the price.
