I've always wondered what a LucasArts-style King's Quest game would be like. Since Telltale were formed with mainly LucasArts veterans, and they employ an evolved version of that style with an episodic flair (which was originally going to be used in LucasArts' own Sam & Max Freelance Police, which itself led to Telltale's creation), it looks like I'm finally going to be able to find out. :)
The third game of the five Telltale is working on is a sequel to their surreal spooky puzzle game Puzzle Agent, simply titled Puzzle Agent 2. The tagline of the game is "Solve the Mystery of Scoggins", so it would seem this game completes the story that began in the original Puzzle Agent. The game is slated to come out on PC, Mac, iPhone, and iPad. No release date has been set yet.

The first episode of the game, which is inspired by the gameplay of Heavy Rain, is scheduled to be released in April 2011 for PC and Mac, and is now available to preorder at The Telltale Games store. It hasn't been confirmed to be coming to any consoles yet, but it's fairly certain it will be coming some time after the PC and Mac release to at least one of the big three.
The other three titles haven't been announced yet, since Telltale has placed a press embargo on the titles that will be lifted in the days to come.

The trailer for Get Tannen, the second episode of Back to the Future: The Game, is available to view now. The trailer shows off the two new characters in this episode: Trixie Trotter and Officer Parker, and reveals a bit about what time periods Marty and Doc will be visiting this time around. This is just speculation, but the game is probably coming out today. The trailer says the game is out now, and the Telltale Games website is down for maintenance, which usually means that a release is imminent.
