In this week's installment of our ongoing series, "Is Sam & Max coming to [platform here]?

for an Xbox 360 programmer that went up last week on Telltale Games' official website
. The systems programmer position entails the implementation of Telltale's "core 3D graphics and audio systems on the Xbox 360," as well as the modification and support of existing art and production assets. Furthermore, it's preferred that any applicants have a "love of adventure games."
Now, there's no need to leap
