Here's the final video of Telltales coverage at PAX Prime 2011! Hopefully you enjoyed coming along with us.
Here's day 2! Sam & Max gets into an adventure game exhibit, and people seem to really dig Jurassic Park, The Game!
Hey guys! We've been having a blast at PAX 2011 and wrapped our first day. People are enjoying Jurassic Park if the squirming and the yelling during the action scenes are any indication. Unfortunately, terrible tragedy befell the Make-A-Scene panel...
Check it out!
Telltale's at PAX and so are you! Well, maybe you're not REALLY there, but thanks to the wonders of digital video, YouTube, and our web team's sleep-deprived insanity, you can pretend to be there with the help of our daily PAX video diaries!
The first video is here, covering day 0 of the show, the set-up day. Get a first glimpse at our Jurassic Park themes booth (with vehicular bonus) and other expo-themed malarkey. Enjoy!

Telltale Games will be in full force at PAX Prime this year (that's this weekend), with a blown-out Jurassic Park themed booth including replica Jurassic Park gates, a Jurassic Park gas-powered jeep, playable demo stations, and poster and t-shirt giveaways - as well as our Make a Scene Panel where the audience helps us make a scene in one of our games!
As well as all that fun stuff, we'll be there documenting as much as we can as we scour the show floor and the surrounding areas for fun stuff to get on video to show the fans at home - much as we did during San Diego Comic Con!
Tune in each morning during PAX for the latest in our PAX Prime 2011 video series!
Hey everyone! Just back from Deutschland (or Germany) where Jurassic Park: The Game lead designer Mark Darin and I were showing the game to press at the annual Gamescom convention in Cologne!
We have some awesome new screenshots from Jurassic Park: Episode 2 ripe for the picking, featuring a couple of our favorite cloned prehistoric friends doing what they do best on Isla Nublar - terrorizing humans!
Dig the Tyrannosaurus Rex shot above? See another screengrab from the second episode of Jurassic Park: The Game after the jump! [readmore]
Who is that just inches away from being eaten by the dilophosaur you ask? You'll get the answer to that question in Jurassic Park: Episode 2!
We'll be blowing out the Penny-Arcade Expo (PAX) next weekend with a Jurassic Park themed booth you won't want to miss! We'll have more details about it later this week, so if you're heading up to Seattle for the show, be sure to stop by!
The Hidden People have spoken (or whispered)! From now until a week from now, both entries in the award-winning Puzzle Agent series on iOS enabled devices are discounted! Puzzle Agent 2, for iPhone and iPad, is only $2.99 while the original Puzzle Agent on both devices is $0.99 for one week!
It took some gum-chewing but we've also addressed some of the issues folks were having with the previous version of Puzzle Agent 2 for iOS! The fixes in the newly released version of the game are as follows:
- Now supports 3G devices and newer
- Puzzle controls & usabiilty significantly improved
- Voice skipping fixed
- Cutscene graphics improved
- Performance enhancements and other minor bug fixes
Thanks to all for your patience while we solved those puzzles.
Be sure to get your fill of the Puzzle Agent series on iOS before this sale pulls an Isaac Davner and disappears.
This is a Telltale Games Public Service Announcement
If you've been following Back to the Future: The Game closely then you already know this but the entire season is now available across the full run of platforms the game has launched on - PC/Mac, PlayStation Network, and iPad!
Where can you nab the thrilling follow-up to the hit Back to the Future movie trilogy you ask? Here, I'll tell you.
PC/Mac - The Telltale Games Store - LINK
PSN - The PlayStation Network Store accessible from your PlayStation 3
This concludes the Public Service Announcement.
Well, there you have it folks, San Diego Comic on 2011 has come and gone! Just because yesterday was the final day doesn't mean we didn't have anything exciting going on though!
Steve Purcell, creator of Sam & Max, spent a couple of hours at our booth talking to fans, rustling up sketches, and signing autographs! It's always great having Steve at our booth as he's entertaining to both the fans and the staff when he's cracking jokes left and right.
Thanks to each and every fan that stopped by the booth this year, we appreciate all of you. That said, when the announcement that the show floor was closed came over the PA system we cheered just about as loudly as the Rebels at Echo Base did when the first transport made it through the Imperial blockade away from Hoth.
Well we're almost there folks, as San Diego Comic Con is winding down to a close!
Day 4 was a great day as AJ and Claudia finished up their signing sessions at the Telltale booth and Bill Willing ham, the creator of the Fables comic series, took a chunk out of his day to autograph Comic Con exclusive Fables prints! As a treat for us, he let us tag along to the Fables panel and show off the new art to the most diehard of diehard Fables fans! We're very much looking forward to working with Bill on the game based on the universe he created!
What do you think Comic Con has in store for us in it's final day?
San Diego Comic Con 2011 is now halfway over and Day 3 was yet another action packed day for Telltale Games!
SDCC 2011 Day 3 marked the first day of Back to the Future: The Game's A.J. LoCascio (Marty McFly) and Claudia Wells (Jennifer Parker) signing autographs and meeting fans at the booth! A.J. had a few spare moments in between signings to get away from the booth and walk the show floor, and not to mention, check out a DeLorean Time Machine at the Mattel booth. The DeLorean they have on display there is top notch; in the words of John Hammond they "spared no expense" in getting it as close as possible to the real deal from the Back to the Future films.
Watch the latest video to see exactly what we were up to during Day 3!
Another day at San Diego Comic Con, another video from your friends at Telltale Games!
Thursday, yesterday, was the first official day of the convention and activity at our booth (#5337 for the thousandth time) reached a fever pitch as we handed out our exclusive The Walking Dead poster tubes and mini-posters! The line was seemingly infinite but that's what happens when free stuff is thrown into the mix!
Shaun got a chance to sit down with Penny-Arcade's own Jerry Holkins (Tycho) and chat about his input on Poker Night at the Inventory and his thoughts on Telltale; Shaun seems to have had a great time doing that. He came back beaming.
We've also given press a new look at The Walking Dead and revealed the first in-game glimpse of Lee and Clementine, so that should be making the rounds this weekend!
Anyway, enough of my blabbering, watch our San Diego Comic Con 2011 Day 1 video!

Get Poker Night at the Inventory for 33% off (that's $3.33 for the math-uninterested like myself) today!

A.J. shows off his impressive vocal abilities and talks about what recording has been like while sporting his sweet Rufio shirt that he actually purchased from the actor that played the character in the movie (Hook). Ok, that was random. Anyway, enjoy the video and check out the full array of Sound Byte features here!

Note: This video is taken directly from a Skype call.
This week's Telltale Soars Across the Internet roundup is a video heavy one - and an A.J. Locascio heavy one to boot! A.J. was hanging out with us at the Telltale Games meeting room during E3 last week so a number of folks that stopped by got to chat with him and talk Back to the Future.
First up, we have a write-up by the fine folks at Comic Book Resources about our upcoming The Walking Dead project! They detail the new information we revealed about the game at E3, including the art from above.
Next up, the always hilarious Lisa Foiles goes into the gory details of her E3 2011 experience. She stopped by the Telltale Games meeting room during E3 and nabbed one of our Barbasol can press kits - the opening of which is documented on video. Yes, A.J. Locascio appears in this video.
The cool dudes from The Nerdy Show also stopped by while A.J. was hanging around our booth and chatted him up a bit. A.J. was wearing an authentic vintage jacket that may or may not have been owned by some unsavory fellows back in the 1970's, so watch the video to learn more about that!
Finally, the Blistered Thumbs crew gets real with A.J. Locascio (yes, again) and has him let loose with some of his other vocal impressions! Watch the video and be amazed!
Stay tuned for the next installment of Telltale Soars Across the Internet!
