This is actually so sad I loved their Walking Dead series and hoped for a sequel to Wolf Amongst Us and GoT

They were actually making a sequel to the Wolf Among Us before this happened.

Yeah I read that somewhere </3

I think the way they release games kinda hurt them a bit. I hate having to wait so I never bought their games until the season was fully released by which they were on sale or even free in some cases

Also, Youtubers probably didnt help, with most games you buy for the gameplay, but if you watch a Telltale walkthrough, you've kinda seen all you need

Apparently the 25 remaining staffers are working on Minecraft or something because they have a deal with Netflix and the last season of The Walking Dead they are currently releasing could be axed.

If this is true then they are truly a despicable company. To sell season passes and not release a full season is basically theft imo

Yeah I bought the season pass too, super pissed. Even though most their games had the same formula, I still loved them all (expect Minecraft I just have no interest in that), it's a very sad day

IMO episodic release is a failed experiment and this was inevitable in the long run. I've literally never played an episodic game before all episodes were released; at which point you can usually pick it up in a Steam sale within 6 months (for like £15). I'm sure I got The Wolf Among Us for something like £5.99 .

But yeah I don't think it was ever sustainable. "Hitman" tried it for one game and has immediately gone back to "full release style" for the next game.

Currently it really has to be either full price big budget release (with some extra bits as DLC), or smaller scale indie releases with smaller price tag.

Tbqfh I also think that people over time have realised that the selling point of telltale games is actually not what it's made out to be... I.e. There's an illusion of choice but you actually can't alter the stories much at all. You're just watching it unfold. And as Dia points out... Once you realise that, even if you enjoy the stories, you might as well just watch a (good, charismatic) YouTuber play through it instead.

Compare them to Detroit or Heavy Rain which - love or loathe them - genuinely branches into several very distinct stories and have scenes that play out totally differently (and entire chapters that may not occur at all) based on your choices. Telltale starts to feel like watching a linear story where you sometimes press a button.

Their games were hardly even games though there was no gameplay you just pressed a button for different dialogue options/choices they were more like those interactive DVD things

in that trailer, they give similarities with Clem & AJ to Lee & Clem


maybe you could have a multiple choice like one option is clem dying/sacrificing herself for AJ, other option could be clem surviving with AJ


just theories though
