Telltale title features The Heavy, Strong Bad and more

Telltale has revealed its new multi-universe poker title, Poker Night at The Inventory.

The game features a crossover between Homestar Runner, Penny Arcade, Sam & Max and Team Fortress 2.

TF2's The Heavy, Strong Bad from Homestar Runner, Tycho of Penny Arcade fame and Sam's trusty side kick Max will all make their way to the which hits the PC and Mac for ""a new style of poker".

"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." said Dan Connors, Telltale CEO.


The game will use Valve's Steamworks feature and according to Telltale the poker game will offer "more than a few surprises".

Telltale is also working on creating Jurrasic Park and Back to the Future episodic games. It recently revealed Christopher Lloyd will reprise his role as Doc Brown in its Back to the Future game.
