It's common for games to receive a lengthy hype period leading up to it's eventual launch. That's what gets people excited and clambering for the game on release day, even if the wait feels excruciating. Telltale seemingly missed that class during Game Design 101, as they've decided to launch their take on the Borderlands universe right now.
The upcoming Game of Thrones episodic game by Telltale recently got some new details, shedding light on all those damn teaser tweets we saw over the past few months. The game has just received a new teaser trailer, as well as more information on House Forrester, the family that the story will focus on.
Last week, I told you all about some details finally surfacing on Telltale’s Game of Thrones. We always knew the story was going to revolve around House Forrester, a family who have never been fleshed out, we just never knew to what extent it was going to be. Some screenshots have been leaked online, and they show some new characters, as well as familiar faces.
Not exactly, but it is his live-action counterpart and occasional Brock Samson, Patrick Warburton. There’s a new trailer out for Telltale Games’ Tales From The Borderlands. You can listen to the iconic pipes of Warburton, after the jump.
Murder, betrayal, incest… these are just a few of the characteristics of Game of Thrones. Having watched the show and read the entire available ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ series (the large tomes that the television adaption is based on), you could say I am a big fan. I look forward to seeing what Telltale will do in their upcoming episodic title. We don’t have much information on the game, other than some random teaser tweets which I’ve done some speculating on. That may change soon.
Telltale Games have certainly earned my trust when it comes to making titles that have a strong emphasis on narratives and tough decisions. As a big fan of both book and series, I’m quite excited for the upcoming Game of Thrones game. Not much is really known about it just yet, but Telltale have been nice enough to release another teaser tweet to keep fans like myself salivating.
Telltale have done some amazing work on franchises such as The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us. They are working on several other projects, one of which is a Game of Thrones tale. Where will their story fit into the vast lore of ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’?
Telltale’s The Walking Dead series is pretty well established now. The first season received critical praise from many. While I don’t quite understand all the game of the year awards, it was a great game nonetheless and I really enjoyed it. The second season is nearing its conclusion, with just one outstanding episode. Looks like a third season is on the way too.
I’ve really grown fond of Telltale and their Walking Dead games. I love ruining peoples lives with my horrible decisions, its survival of the fittest after all! If you’re a fan like myself, you can rejoice, because the next instalment in the episodic game has some sort of release date.
I don’t think I would be entirely wrong in saying that Telltale’s The Wolf Among Us is better than The Walking Dead in a number of ways. I’ve been playing both, and while the storytelling is excellent across the board, there’s something about the Fables universe that makes each episode a bit more inviting, never mind entertaining. It could just be Snow White, who knows.
Reporting to you live from the US of A, this hipster is typing for your reading pleasure on an ancient Mac laptop. How much more hipster can you get - it was an Apple before it was cool. But that's not the only indie news to report - here's all the indie news of the week.
Telltale Games have made a name for themselves, with point ‘n click revivals such as Sam and Max, undead cult favourite The Walking Dead and their current darling Fables. Their next project though? A trip to Pandora, in Tales From The Borderlands. I’m not exactly sold on the idea of merging that game with the style of Telltale. But at least it looks solid visually.
I've been skeptical about Telltale Games' Tales from the Borderlands. Sure, the art style will fit, but how were they gonna take a gun happy game like Borderlands and turn it into a point-and-click choose-your-own-death game? Well, they have a plan, and it actually seems like it could be interesting.
Telltale Games now has two episodic games in the wild with only one episode each. The Wolf Among Us gets its second episode tomorrow, while The Walking Dead is teased to be just around the corner - like a walker? Check out all this twitter teasing.
