"Telltale has been rejecting my ideas for green text adventures for years..." —Strong Bad[1]

Telltale Games is a video game company that has partnered with Videlectrix to produce Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People, a game in five episodes, or 'actionsodes' in Strong Bad's term, for PC and WiiWare. According to Strong Bad, "Telltale has been rejecting my ideas for green text adventures for years, but we finally reached a compromise with this puffy 3D point-and-click-em-up adventure. They claim all the coding was done with green text, so I guess that's pretty cool."[1]

The Telltale offices can be seen in the series Behind The Bad, featuring Strong Bad.

On November 19, 2008, Videlectrix expressed jealousy of Telltale Games and announced that they plan to "strike back". Attempts included releasing Dangeresque Roomisode 1: Behind the Dangerdesque to cash in on Dangeresque 3: The Criminal Projective and creating an alternate SBCG4AP box (which later became the reverse artwork for the SBCG4AP Collector's DVD).

On September 2, 2010, Telltale Games announced Poker Night At The Inventory featuring Strong Bad as part of the cast. The game was released on November 22, 2010.
