Telltale Games Restores Three Classic Titles on Steam

December 7, 2020

Three classic Telltale Games titles are returning to digital stores for PC, including Wallace & GromitStrong Bad, and a Texas Hold 'Em game.

Over two years ago, Telltale Games effectively closed down and this had a lot of unfortunate consequences for many of its games. Some of these titles were in a digital limbo of sorts and unavailable for purchase. Efforts have been made to revive the company in various fashions, and now some of that work is bearing fruit with the return of three classic games to digital storefronts.

What Are the Telltale Games Returning to Stores?

The Telltale Games titles returning to digital stores are Wallace & Gromit's Grand AdventureStrong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People: Season 1, and Telltale Texas Hold 'Em.

Each of these games are well over a decade old, so don't expect too much in the way of modern conventions. That said, there are surely fans of these games who missed the chance to get them, so give them a looksie and see if there's something you like!

Head on down to West Wallaby Street with these classic stop-motion characters created by Aardman. This game features four episodes, each of which gives players a new adventure to experience in the classic Wallace & Gromit style.

As with most of Telltale's releases, this is a point & click adventure game based on the long-running Wallace & Gromit series.

Strong Bad is a character that is well-known in Internet lore, owing to a long-running Flash series with a strange cast of characters. His popularity got so huge that he eventually got his own Telltale game, and this is that title.

Players can enjoy five episodes of point & click adventure gameplay featuring Strong Bad, Trogdor, and other characters from Homestar Runner. Most importantly, this game features Trogdor the Burninator, a mighty one-armed dragon who burns down the villages of peasants. Eat your heart out, Skyrim.

It's a game where you can play Texas Hold 'Em Poker against AI players in a 4:3 aspect ratio. Your boomer dad would probably love this game.

But seriously, Telltale has occasionally stepped outside of its point & click comfort zone with games like Telltale Texas Hold 'Em. Each of the other players at the table have their own quirks and personality for you to figure out as you try to walk away from the table with the most cash.


And that's it for the highlights! Each of these games are available at pretty reasonable prices on Steam, GOG, and Green Man Gaming; some store pages (including those at Robot Cache) were not live at the time of writing. You can pick up each of these games at prices ranging from $4.99–$14.99 or your regional equivalent.

I've had a controller in my hand since I was 4 and I haven't stopped gaming since. CCGs, Tabletop Games, Pen & Paper RPGs - I've tried a whole bunch of stuff over the years and I'm always looking to try more!
