November, famous for Thanksgiving and Black Friday, is getting a little more distinguishable as the Movember movement grows - and it's getting just as hairy here at Telltale!
Movember, a grassroots movement to raise awareness for men's health by the growing out of lustrous mustaches, has taken hold here at Telltale and we're only about halway through the month. A number of the Telltale team have taken to growing their whiskers for this good cause and, halfway through the month, many of them are looking pretty nice. We'll have pictures to show you soon!
We encourage you to join in the Movember fun by joining up on the Movember site and making a team for yourself - just visit the official Movember site!
It's time for another installment of our ongoing "Hey Telltale, Whatcha Been Playing?" series where we give you a look at which video games the team that makes some of your favorite games are playing themselves. This time we have a producer that's working on a game that happens to be releasing next week (Hint: it's Jurassic Park: The Game), Chris Shroyer!
Without further ado, here's what Chris has been playing:
"A few weeks ago I picked up a 3DS and while I’ve found a bunch of fun games on the platform, the one that has me hooked is actually DS game. Kirby Mass Attack looks like just another platformer on the surface, but the stylus-only controls and highly experimental level design makes it one of the freshest experiences I’ve played in a long time. Throughout the story mode you’ll guide an army of Kirbys to stomp on anything that crosses your path while solving some just-challenging-enough puzzles and discovering a bunch of secret passages/items/doohickeys along the way. While this is worth the price of admission by itself, the game really shines when it comes to its additive mini-games. These cleverly designed distractions vary in size and scope from a simple Simon Says button matching twitch-fest to a 5-level vertical scrolling shooter in the vein of the Star Soldier games.
When I’m playing on my PC I’m almost always found in front of Blocks That Matter, a platform-puzzler where players are cast in the role of a tiny, blocked-shaped robot that must save indie-game developers Alexey Pajitnov and Markus Persson. It’s the kind of game that would appeal to folks like me that dream of an update to strange puzzle games like Solomon’s Key or Adventures of Lolo. The puzzles are the good kind of challenging, the controls are just right, and fans of indie platformers will see a host of character cameos (in block form, of course).
Looking ahead, I can barely stand the wait for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and eagerly await release dates for The Last Guardian and Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2."
Hey Telltale Fans, whatcha been playing? Let's hear it in the comments!
Ok, I know we're a couple of days late in posting the awesomeness that is the variety of costumes some of the Telltale Team came dressed as on All Hallows' Eve but it was worth the wait!
Halloween is a lot of fun here at Telltale HQ and the spooky spirit of the day claws its way into nearly every bit of the office! This year was no exception, with folks pulling out all the stops on their ghastly garments for all to see - including you, the fair Telltale fans!
After the jump, find photos of all the creepy costumes the Telltale Team wore proudly!
So, without further ado, we present to you, the Telltale Halloween 2011!
The Jurassic Park Ultimate Trilogy just released and it's once again brought to the forefront the incredible subject matter that fuels our upcoming release, Jurassic Park: The Game. Making a huge impression with the technological advances put forward in bringing realistic looking dinosaurs to the big screen for the first time, Jurassic Park is now a cinema classic. As our staff has always been packed to the brim with huge fans of the properties we work on, Jurassic Park, is no different, so I've taken this opportunity to gather some responses from some of the Telltale team on the feelings and experiences they had when seeing Jurassic Park for the first time.
The above limited edition poster by JC Richards is from an upcoming sale at Mondo.
