Telltale Games, purveyors of fine point-and-click adventure games, are launching a 99-cent sale that they are describing as ‘epic’. The sale, set to run from January 19th until the 29th, includes a total of 11 games. Included in the sale is the Hector: Badge of Carnage series, that takes a quirky, grotesque, and profane look at police detective work through the eyes of the crude Hector. All three episodes in the series for iPad are on sale, and the last two episodes are on sale for iPhone/iPod touch. The first episode for iPhone was published by original developer Straandloop, which likely explains why it isn’t part of the sale.

The Puzzle Agent series is also on sale, for those who like their adventure games a little less ribald and a little more on the cerebral side, these games provide some fiendishly challenging puzzles. Both episodes are on sale for both iPhone/iPod touch and iPad. Finally, Sam and Max: The Penal Zone Episode 1 and Wallace & Gromit: The Last Resort, both for iPad, are part of this $0.99 sale until the 29th. Hit the break for all eleven apps on sale.

Puzzle Agent was a bit of a hit with us last year even though it was a little too short. Fans need not fear though as the next instalment, cunningly titled Puzzle Agent 2, is set to be released on June 30.

Puzzle Agent 2 sets out to build upon its older brother’s success by offering more rewarding puzzles based on the feedback from fans. The game will pick up after FBI Agent Nelson Tethers ‘solved’ the Scoggins Eraser Factory case — things get much murkier. Tethers has to go rogue and ventures back to the town of Scoggins, Minnesota in order to solve the biggest case of his career so far. Hopefully this will also mean a longer experience!

To celebrate the impending release of Puzzle Agent 2, the original title is on sale with the iPad version priced at $2.99 and the iPhone version priced at $0.99 until June 14.

Hopefully that’ll keep many puzzle fans busy until June 30 when Puzzle Agent 2 hits the App Store.

Check out the video and screenshot gallery below to whet the appetite ready for the game.

That headline could have gotten quite a bit longer. Don’t say we didn’t warn you! The fine, upstanding folks at TellTale Games, purveyors of such fine games as Sam & Max, Monkey Island, Wallace and Gromit, and Puzzle Agent, have decided that they just don’t have enough to keep them busy. They announced a metric ton-load of games coming our way soon, on iOS and other gaming consoles you may or may not own.

First up, Back to the Future – it’s out now for the iPad, it’s $7, and it’s a BRAND NEW storyline, episodic style. TellTale worked with the actual writer of the movies to come up with this all new adventure, then created a video game around it. The Mac/PC version is up to Episode 2, and they’re releasing it on the iPad, starting now. Says iTunes: “Play as Marty in a cinematic adventure true to the films, [in a] collaboration with Bob Gale, Film Trilogy Co-Creator/Co-Writer. New Back to the Future story in 5 monthly episodes.”

Next is Puzzle Agent 2. Yes, you heard us right – the sequel to the award-winning puzzle game featuring artwork by comic artist Graham Annable is coming to the iPhone and iPad as well as the PC, Mac, and PlayStation Network. Nelson Tethers is again featured in an all new tale and set of puzzles set in the MidWest, scheduled to release this spring. “In the second Puzzle Agent game, ace puzzle investigators will return to the snowy mid-west to help Agent Tethers solve the mystery haunting the realm.”

Add to the above a new game – Hector: Badge of Carnage: “a lewd, crude and gritty law enforcement comedy, featuring tough-talking, soft-bellied Detective Inspector Hector – a flawed, misanthropic anti-hero with an unhealthy taste for all things criminal, corrupt or smothered with curry sauce. ” Telltale will bring the first installment (currently on iPhone), ‘We Negotiate with Terrorists,’ to iPad, PC and Mac this Spring, with two more installments planned for later in the year. We can’t wait, to be honest – the title alone is worth checking this one out.

Finally, Telltale Games is partnering with two hot comic book properties as well.

Fables, the award winning comic series created and written by Bill Willingham, is coming to gaming consoles near you. The press release boasts, “Fables is one of DC Comics’ longest-running series published under its Vertigo imprint. The series received over a dozen Eisner Awards including for Best Writer, Best New Series, and numerous wins for Best Serialized Story, and was a 2009 Hugo Award nominee for Best Graphic Story.” Fables is a graphic novel that concerns the exiled characters from the world’s storybooks — big Bad Wolf, Pinocchio, Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, and many others — as they fight a mysterious Adversary and learn to live in the very real mundane world of New York.

In addition, Telltale has inked a deal with Robert Kirkman and Image Comics, writer and publisher, respectively, of The Walking Dead, another hot property in the graphic novel and television industries. The Walking Dead games are promised to be coming to “PC, Mac, console, handheld, mobile and social gaming media.” We checked with Telltale PR, and they said, in essence, to keep an eye out around comic con time for further announcements.

On a quick end note, here, Jurassic Park the game is also being announced for Mac and PC, with a $5 pre-order discount. At the press event, Telltale did say they were bringing it to Mac, PC, “and other platforms,” according to our man on the scene. If past release history tells us anything, though, the iPad is probably one of those other platforms, though nothing specific has been announced. We’ll try and follow up on this one as well, because, c’mon – Jurassic Park!
