I Heard it Through the Grapevine (Comic-Con Related)

posted by Mike Haley on - last edited - Viewed by 505 users

I returned from San Diego last night. I hung out with the Telltale Games team for much of the day, and learned a few interesting details, but I don't know if I can safely reveal them all here. Ah, well, I am sure that this post will be modded if it contains any unwanted revelations.

1: Steve Purcell is looking to plush companies for a line of Sam & Max plush figures. He has not decided on a style yet, though, and may look to the forum community for ideas.
2: Monkey Island Case Files are a real possibility, but keep in mind that these are still early days. Who knows how busy Telltale Games will be at the time of the Monkey Island DVD release.
3: Sam & Max Season Three COULD BE coming at the end of this year. I don't remember who said this, though. I may have actually dreamed it.
4: Strong Bad Season Two has not yet been "green lit," but given their use of that word, I get the feeling that they have been trying to work out a deal with the Chapman brothers.
5: The mystery swordsman is

I will have some photos soon. I bought some pretty cool merchandise. Perhaps I will write a lengthy blog at some point, too.

    I

    Hmmmmmm... Veeeeeeery interesting...

    But more seriously, I really hope we get ToMI case files. And loads of other cool stuff! I can't see why LucasArts wouldn't agree with it, I mean it's a money spinner isn't it?

    Whoa momma! I don't think Telltale wants those sort of spoilers spread on the forums! :eek:

    How would that work when Guybrush isn't a detective? Or am I misunderstanding the term?

    That is just a loose term to describe things. More than likely, it will not be called the "Tales of Monkey Island Case File," but that gives you a better idea of what to expect from the product.

    That is, if it indeed shall come to pass.

    Oh I see! Well hopefully it'll actually happen :)

    All I can say is, bout time!

    Very busy, if they come up with a whole new series by the time it's over.

    3: Sam & Max Season Three is coming at the end of this year. I don't remember who said this, though. I may have actually dreamed it.

    I hope you didn't dream it, I've been waiting forever!

    4: Strong Bad Season Two has not yet been "green lit," but given their use of that word, I get the feeling that they have been trying to work out a deal with the Chapman brothers.

    I hope there's a Season 2, I will not let Videlectrix turn Strong Bad into pixels, one more time!

    Is it pie? I hope it's pie.
