|Company Profile:||Founded in 2004 by LucasArts veterans with decades of experience, Telltale has quickly become an industry leader, establishing the model for downloadable game seasons and releasing more than 30 games to date. Telltale's titles have won numerous awards including "Adventure Game of the Year" accolades from publications such as IGN, PC Gamer, GameSpy, and Adventure Gamers, and have been recognized by mainstream outlets ranging from USA Today, to The New York Times to Variety.
The publisher's landmark Sam & Max series, based on the independent comics by Steve Purcell, paved the way for episodic gaming with two award-winning seasons available on PC, Wii, and Xbox LIVE Arcade. In 2008, Telltale launched the first episodic series available on WiiWare with Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People, five adventures based on the Homestarrunner.com web cartoons. Ranked by USA Today as one of the top five downloadable games to watch in 2009, Telltale's Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures took episodic in a new direction with a series based on Aardman's globally popular franchise. Later that year, Telltale announced and launched Tales of Monkey Island, the highly-anticipated episodic return of Guybrush Threepwood in the series' first original story in nearly a decade.
