Telltale Games gets into gambling

That Strong Bad/Tycho Brahe/Max/The Heavy mashup teaser? It’s a poker game.

Telltale’s revealed Poker Night at The Inventory, a downloadable PC and Mac, indeed, poker game it’s releasing for $4.99 this fall (already available for pre-order).

Explains CEO Dan Connors: “We’ve had the idea for some time of exploring the idea of what video characters do when they’re not ‘on the clock’ in the games we play. We pitched the idea to friends in the industry and it really resonated. We all had a great time imagining what these guys would banter about while slinging cards – from there Poker Night at The Inventory was born.”

As the image above suggests, we may be in for more than simple poker though; “more than a few surprises” are yet to be unveiled, Telltale warns.
