Chuck Jordan has left Telltale Games. In his own words, "[It is n]ot my last day ever working with those guys, I'm hoping, just my last day as a regular full-timer."
The reason he gives is this: "I need to start trying out ideas and attempting to make something more experimental than even a smaller studio like Telltale could practically take on. Maybe nothing will come of it (it's entirely possible that I'm ridiculously over-estimating my own abilities), but with all the tools and support for independent games right now, there's no better time to try it and see."
For those of you who don't know who he is, Chuck Jordan's Mojo-related career started with being a programmer, co-writer and additional designer on The Curse of Monkey Island, and later a script programmer on Grim Fandango. He later wrote "Abe Lincoln Must Die!", "Reality 2.0" and "Bright Side of the Moon" from Sam and Max: Season One (aka Sam and Max Save the World), was the lead writer and co-designer on Sam and Max: Season Two (aka Sam and Max Beyond Time and Space), was designer and co-writer on the Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People episodes "Strong Badia the Free" (episode two) and "8-Bit is Enough" (episode five), and, recently, wrote, designed and co-directed "The Penal Zone", the first episode of the new Sam and Max game The Devil's Playhouse, of which he is also Season Lead Designer. He has one more episode coming-out: "The City That Dares Not Sleep", which he wrote, designed, and has completed his work on. The episode will be finished by Telltale.
Needless to say, Mixnmojo wishes Chuck Jordan the best of luck in his future endeavors. But man, did this come out of nowhere.
