Texas Hold 'em

Mojo reports that Telltale Games has released its first game - a Texas hold 'em poker game. Wait, not an adventure? It actually makes a lot of sense:

Telltale Games is about great characters and stories; Telltale Texas Hold Em is about characters. The reason this is the first product released by Telltale Games is because it is much more straightforward then launching a full adventure game based on a license. All the work we are doing on characters now will definitely benefit the quality of our adventure games.

In other words, a superbly clever marketing idea. For $14.99 it's a steal, so go purchase (or try) it over at the new Adventure Gamers Store.
