The first episode of Telltale's Hector: Badge of Carnage revamp arrives on PC, Mac and iPad on 27th April.

Subtitled We Negotiate with Terrorists, it's available for pre-order now on PC and Mac for $9.99, or your local equivalent.

Open your wallet now and you'll get a complimentary copy of Puzzle Agent thrown in, with 10 per cent of all pre-order proceeds going to help the tsunami relief effort in Japan.

For those unfamiliar with original, the ace Straandlooper-developed point and click adventure arrived on the iPhone in June last year.

"Some of the best one-liners and crackpot characters seen in an adventure game since the mighty Day of the Tentacle," wrote Kristan Reed in his 9/10 review. "Yes, it really is that good, and insanely good value for the three hours of fun it provides."

As well as enhanced visuals the new version also adds improved hint and save-game systems.

Episodes two and three – titled Senseless Acts of Justice and Beyond Reasonable Doom respectively – follow later in the year, with iPhone versions of those also planned.
