Despite the recently announced retail release of Sam & Max: Season 1 for the Nintendo Wii, Telltale Games was built from the ground up to sell its games online. Given that focus, it's fitting that the developer has announced today that its next digitally distributed project will feature a character born and bred on the Internet.

Telltale today revealed Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People, an adventure game for the PC and WiiWare starring the "thousandaire gadabout" Strong Bad. The first episode of the five-part series will debut on WiiWare in June, and follow-ups will be released on a monthly basis. (Telltale did not specify if the series' PC releases would be simultaneous with the console versions and had not responded to a request for clarification as of press time.) In the game, players will take control of Strong Bad himself, solving puzzles while interacting with the world and characters of Homestarrunner.com.

Strong Bad is no stranger to gaming. In addition to having his song "Trogdor" adapted for use as a bonus song in Guitar Hero II, the pugnacious pen pal has previously proposed a number of different treatments for a Strong Bad game.
