Max to appear in a new Telltale crossover game

GameTrailers have had the exclusive reveal of a new title from Telltale Games in the form of this teaser trailer (embedded below in the full post). In it we can see the silhouettes of Max, Strong Bad (Homestar Runner), Tycho (Penny Arcade) and the Heavy (Team Fortress 2), the latter two appearing to be holding some cards.
