Gamespot has posted a preview of Telltale's upcoming adventure game Bone. In the grand tradition of such point and click adventure titles as the Monkey Island series, Grim Fandango and Full Throttle, Bone allows players to take part in the computerized version of Jeff Smith's comic franchise of the same name.

In pure mechanical terms, Bone will tread familiar territory for adventure game aficionados with its context-sensitive point-and-click interface. Click an area on the ground, and the currently controllable character will walk to it. Hover the cursor over and click on an object you can look at or interact with, and your character will perform the appropriate interaction. The game gives you an inventory in which to gather objects, but Telltale stresses that Bone won't rely on contrived inventory puzzles requiring you to combine obscure objects with one another. Instead, you'll be tasked with overcoming obstacles using the items and abilities on hand in a given situation, which will presumably make you think creatively about the game's puzzles rather than turning to the nearest FAQ for the solution.
As reported earlier on IMG, a Mac version of Bone is being considered. Stay tuned for further updates. Read the full preview at the link below and be sure to check out the included screenshots.
