I couldn't find the old thread thanks to the crappy search, so I guess it's time to start over.
Anyway, Telltale! What a, er, tale. They were one of the few companies that managed to make episodic gaming work and cranked out some great narrative-heavy experiences like new Sam and Max, Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People, Wolf Among Us, The Walking Dead, and the surprisingly fantastic Tales from the Borderlands.
But then they cranked out too many games (seriously, I played their take on Guardians of the Galaxy and I couldn't tell you a damn thing about it) and imploded
. Then some folks we've never heard of bought the smoking remains of the company and pledged to start anew
. There was much skepticism, but at least they got most of their back catalog back up for sale.
And now this has happened:
Yes, we're getting a sequel to one of their top games (tied or very close to Tales of the Borderlands). Will it be any good? Will it follow the old Telltale formula that eventually ran the company into the ground, or will it do something new? Guess we'll find out tomorrow.
