How versatile is the Telltale Tool?

Kind of a stupid question, but I'm curious. Although the Telltale Tool was primarily designed with point-and-click adventure games in mind, we've seen it used for poker games, Professor Layton-style puzzle games, and even Heavy Rain-style interactive movies. But I have to wonder...what would the Telltale Tool be capable of if Telltale decided to really push it to the limit? Obviously the engine's not meant for versatility in the same sense as, say, Unreal Engine 3 is, but I'm sure something...odd could be done with it. SCUMM was meant for adventure games too, but they still managed to make the Backyard Sports games with it.

The thing that sparked this idea for me were those little FPS segments in The Walking Dead. And even before that, there was the Wolfenstein parody scene in SBCG4AP. If, say, Telltale wanted to make a "proper" FPS, do you think it'd be feasible to do that with the Tool?

(DISCLAIMER: I know people are going to jump on me for mentioning Telltale and FPSes together. I'm not saying they should make one, just asking if they could.)
