That I don't doubt. Telltale is still getting better and better with each episode. I'm not sure the environment-recycling is the best example though; it was always obvious, which is easy to get away with (expected, even) for Strong Bad but not very appropriate for Sam & Max. Besides, there was some pretty good recycling in the last two Sam & Max episodes.
On a vaguely related note, I wonder if the "hyper-realistic" "dream office" in Dangeresque 3 foreshadows the kind of graphics we can expect in Wallace & Gromit. That's certainly something to look forward to.
although we do still have a time machine, so I wouldn't completely rule out the possibility.
