The Wolf Among Us season finale IGN game of the month

In their video announcing the accolade for the season finale, Cry Wolf, IGN said the season has "some of the best action, some of the best writing, and honestly the best final twist that Telltale's ever done... at the end of 2014 I'm going to look back on storytelling in games, and I have no doubt that The Wolf Among Us is going to be right at the top."

GamesRadar also said that "The Wolf Among Us will huff, and it'll puff, and it'll blow you away... it grabs you from the first minute and doesn't let go until the credits roll. With Wolf, Telltale has taken a simple point-and-click adventure and created pure magic."

Thanks to all those of you who've played the season along the way!

As for The Walking Dead: Season Two: the season's final episode, No Going Back, is well under way. Look out for more news on that coming very soon!

  • GameSpot - 9 out of 10 - "Telltale's masterful storytelling keeps us hoping for the best even as that optimism is continually shattered by what is proving to be one of the most memorable tragedies ever told in gaming"

  • Machinima - 9 out of 10 - "This second season has accomplished what season one did so well: it’s managed to keep me both eager and dreading the new episodes"

E3 wrap-up - Tales from the Borderlands & The Walking Dead pinball

Posted on June 16 by puzzlebox

We're just back from a crazy hectic week out at E3, where press got their very first look at Tales from the Borderlands in motion! Following are some new screenshots from the game, pics of our demo theater, and thoughts from the press about what they saw inside...

E3 booth

"Telltale's record is pretty darn good. Once it made the jump from traditional point-and-click to narrative-driven gameplay, the developer found a format that works for just about any game. And then it announced Tales from the Borderlands, and it felt like it might've gone one step too far. Borderlands was about guns! And loot! Things that don't work in that style of gameplay! Right? Wrong. So beautifully, wonderfully wrong." - GamesRadar

Theater

"It’s savvy, smart adaptation at work... The art direction and humour belong to the world of Borderlands, but the narrative complexity and ingenuity are unmistakably Telltale." - IGN

"They're doing some REALLY creative, cool stuff that got me really excited... They have an excellent lead character, and I think they have an excellent premise... I was hooked." - GameTrailers

Rhys

Fiona

"...an absolutely perfect approach to the Borderlands world." - PC Gamer

"Tales from the Borderlands is a match made in heaven... Masterfully, Telltale hit the bulls-eye in their partnership with Gearbox." - CinemaBlend

"Game of show. Calling it right now. Stop everything." - Cheat Code Central

Vasquez

The Stranger

Bandit attack

"We walked out of the room with a keen sense of anticipation for Tales from the Borderlands' release along with a genuine smile on our face from the humour that runs beneath the narrative... You're not a vault hunter, this isn't a first-person shooter, but it's 100 per cent Borderlands." - PocketGamer

"Telltale Games continues to prove itself as an agile team of storytellers, capable of molding and shaping a variety of tonally and thematically different fictional sources into impactful experiences that all share a common DNA. Tales from the Borderlands shows every sign of being yet another faithful realization of that notion, a story by Borderlands fans, for Borderlands fans that takes something familiar and frames it in a very different way." - Digital Trends

Loaderbot

And finally... we were lucky enough to have some very special visitors come by our booth during the week, including the voice of Lee Everett, Dave Fennoy himself. He was psyched to play The Walking Dead pinball (and we were psyched to have him there)!

The Penultimate Episode of The Wolf Among Us here this week on - PC, Mac, PS3*, Xbox 360, and iOS!

Here's what some of the folks in the press had to say about Episode 4: In Sheep’s Clothing.

Joystiq – 5 out of 5 – “It gives us absurd characters like talking pigs and childhood boogeymen and makes them as real as we are, so that we ourselves feel like citizens of Fabletown, scraping to get by. Our eyes are open, the glitter of our storybooks long since vanished. Time to open the door.

GamesBeat – 90/100 – “Hurtles down a dire and downright insane path

Rock, Paper, Shotgun – “…the best episode yet

Cheat Code Central 4.7 out of 5 – “This is bigger than you ever imagined

Digital Trends - 5 out of 5 – “If you’re in this far already, you know the score: play Episode Four then try to contain your anticipation for Episode Five. As Telltale has repeatedly proven again and again with The Wolf Among Us, the wait will be worth it.

Note that The Wolf Among Us Episode Four has been confirmed by our partners at PlayStation Europe to be available starting June 4th on SCEE networks. Episode 4 will also be available starting May 29th on iOS App Store as an in-app purchase within The Wolf Among Us.

  • Giant Bomb - "It's a fantastic and brutal ending to one of the absolute best episodes in this series. 'In Harm's Way' manages to deliver one of the most engrossing stories in the series to date"

'Tales from the Borderlands' revealed in first screenshots

Posted on May 6 by puzzlebox

We've released the first ever screenshots from our upcoming episodic game series, Tales from the Borderlands! Set on Pandora AFTER the events of Borderlands 2 from Gearbox Software and 2K Games, the Telltale series will premiere for download later this summer.

Featuring two playable characters, the story is told from two unique perspectives that will alternate as the story progresses. These characters include Rhys, a scheming, low-level data miner within Hyperion who's plotting his own grand ambitions; and Fiona, a clever and classic fast-talking con artist born and raised on Pandora, out to pull off the grift of a lifetime.

While they themselves aren't vault hunters, both Rhys and Fiona will also come across vault hunters such as Zer0 and other characters from the world of Borderlands 2 throughout the series, as all events in Tales from the Borderlands will be part of the official Borderlands story canon.

Check out this Official PlayStation blog post from Adam Sarasohn (Producer on Tales from the Borderlands) for a few more details on the series!
