Posted on December 2013 by puzzlebox

Surprise! During an action-packed Saturday at VGX in Los Angeles, we finally got to reveal a couple of new projects Telltale will be working on in 2014.

First off, we're partnering up with our friends at Gearbox Software and 2K to create an all-new episodic game series, Tales from the Borderlands. More details to come later in 2014, but for now, check out this announcement trailer for a taste of what's about to go down on Pandora...



Also due to premiere in 2014 is our episodic game series based on the epic drama Game of Thrones, developed in partnership with HBO. Announcement trailer below!

Lots of exciting stuff set to happen next year! Can't wait to share it all with you guys.

Sneak peek at The Wolf Among Us Episode 2: 'Smoke & Mirrors'

Posted on December 2013 by puzzlebox

With this week's launch of The Wolf Among Us on iOS, everyone here at the office has been incredibly excited by the response to our series from fans new and old alike. We know many of you are anxious to see where Bigby's story goes next, and the dev team is hard at work finalizing our live development process on the upcoming episode, Smoke & Mirrors. At Telltale, we always aim to deliver quality content across the season at a pace that will keep you glued to your screen and talking about 'your story' as the season progresses. With the second chapter now close to completion, we wanted to share two new screens from the episode to give you a sneak peek at what will be happening next in Fabletown...

First up is a brand-new reveal of a character that FABLES fans will definitely recognize – the one and only 'Jack' of beanstalk fame. A sharp-tongued rogue who's been a staple character in the FABLES series since issue one, Jack has even been honored with his very own spinoff comic series, Jack of FABLES.

We also have a peek at the seedy underground club exclusively for Fables, known as the 'Pudding & Pie.' Doesn't look like the gentleman in the chair is particularly happy to see Bigby and his 'friend,' but it's probably safe to say that Bigby isn't very happy either...

Pudding and Pie

We wanted to thank everyone for playing the first chapter in The Wolf Among Us, and ask for your patience as the team works very hard this month to finalize what is shaping up to be another episode full of surprises. We're anticipating another update on its ETA for release very soon after the holidays, and we couldn't be more excited to continue this series with all of you.

Stay tuned for more updates as they happen, and if you're also a fan of The Walking Dead, definitely check back for news on the Season Two premiere, set to arrive later THIS MONTH on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, Mac, and iOS!

Telltale at San Diego Comic-Con: The Wrap-Up

Posted on July 2013 by TelltaleGames

In a word (or two), San Diego Comic-Con was freakin' incredible! HUGE thanks to all The Walking Dead fans who stopped by to chat with us, and especially those who lined up for hours to see the special panel on Saturday afternoon with Telltale co-founders Dan Connors and Kevin Bruner, PlayStation's Don Mesa, and The Walking Dead creator himself, Robert Kirkman. 

If you couldn't make it out to San Diego in person, don't worry, you haven't missed out! You can see the panel highlights in the video below (warning, contains Season One spoilers!). 




 

If you haven't played The Walking Dead Season One yet, there's just one spoiler-free tidbit you should know. On August 20th, PS Vita is getting all five episodes of The Walking Dead Season One, PLUS the 400 Days DLC episode. Even if you’ve already played through Season One on PS3, you can earn an additional set of Trophies for playing the series on PS Vita as well.

For those who HAVE played The Walking Dead Season One, you might be wondering if we spilled any details on Season Two... well, we did (stop reading now if you don't want to know)! Dedicated fans lined up to tease a little more information out of our storytellers on stage, and when a fan cosplaying as a certain 8 year old girl in a baseball cap asked if we'd ever see Clementine again, our very own Dan Connors confirmed for the first time that Clementine will definitely be a part of Season Two. Beyond that, he wouldn't say more!

Your moderator will be none other than Greg Miller of IGN.

There may even be a few hints on what we can expect to see next in The Walking Dead universe and the Telltale game series, so if you're at the show, it's one not to miss!
