Telltale Incorporated, has secured USD 6 million in venture capitalist funding from Granite Ventures and IDG Ventures of San Francisco.

"Digital distribution is changing entertainment, and Telltale is helping define the new landscape," said Telltale's CEO and co-founder Dan Connors.

"This funding will allow us to stay on the cutting edge of innovation by building out our team and our tools, and by taking on new licenses for the episodic treatment," Connors said.

Telltale is based in San Rafael, California and was founded in 2004. The studio recently concluded Sam & Max: Season 1, a six-episode game series that launched in 2006 and was released in monthly instalments up until May of this year.

Previously, the company released episodic games based on Jeff Smith's Bone comic book. Both series of games were distributed digitally.

"Telltale has it all-a great group of people who are changing an industry while doing what they love," said Granite Ventures managing director Chris Hollenback, who has now joined Telltale's board of directors.

"We look forward to helping them build the next major player in the gaming industry."
