Your first contact with Telltale games!

posted by Foinikas on - last edited - Viewed by 205 users

The first game from Telltale that I bought was Tales of Monkey Island.But for me it was something more than that.

You see I grew up reading of the early 90s about PC games and such and learning that Monkey Island was a legend.One of the best adventure games ever.But I never got the chance to play it!

So my first Monkey Island game was Tales of Monkey Island which I bought when it came out on DVD.And was I disappointed by my first contact with Monkey Island and Telltale Games?Absolutely not!On the contrary I loved the humor,the easy controls,the art,the voice acting.

I loved it all.I did have to stop somewhere in the second episode though because my laptop was acting stupid,but that doesn't matter.Telltale games proved me they can be smart,funny and make very beautiful and interesting stuff!

So what was the first contact you had with them?

  • first contact: pirating Season 1+2 of Sam & Max
    first time I got interested in the company was when SBCG4AP was out and I wanted to play it.
    First purchased game: Sam & Max Season 1 on Steam, after that the TT-everything pack the X-mas sale after.
    Bought every game except BTTF, Hector & Law & Order until now...

    Sounds like me, actually.

    Maybe we are split personalities.:cool:

  • A friend sent me an article on Facebook showing that this company was making another Monkey Island game. She did that because in my senior year of high school, after the APs were done I had replayed all the MI games and had talked about them incessantly to all my non gamer friends, in an attempt to reform them from their non gamer ways by making them jealous of all the amazing fun I was having. Of course, when I heard this news I immediately hopped over there and pre-ordered.

    I occasionally visited the forums, but I mainly lurked and didn't make my first post until nearly three months in. That post was "This"... or some variation thereof. As might be noted, I've gotten a bit more talkative since then.

  • I heard that someone was making a Strong Bad game for the Wii. I bought the first two episodes, and while I enjoyed it, $10 an episode proved to be too steep for me at the time, and I never finished the series on Wii.

    As for how I ended up on their forums, cut to a year later, when Tales of Monkey Island was announced. I didn't pre-order, mainly because I couldn't decide whether to buy it on Wii or PC (and did I ever make the right choice by going with PC), but I was there from the start, and after finishing chapter 4, I had to talk to someone about it and turned to the Telltale forums.

    And I did eventually end up playing through all five episodes of SBCG4AP on PC.

  • First heard about them when SBCG4AP was announced. I loved Homestar Runner, and when I heard they were getting a "real" video game I knew I had to check it out. From there I got into Sam and Max and Tales, and the rest is history.

    A buddy of mine was raving about how Sam & Max was coming back from the dead in 2006 (this was right on the heels of the Freelance Police cancellation) so I was just super excited. I learned TTG was relatively local to me when when Jake posted a call for volunteer playtesters on Something Awful, and the rest is history.

    I was following news about them on The International House of Mojo and read their blog posts from before even Telltale Texas Hold'Em was released. I skipped Telltale Texas Hold'Em and bought their second game Out From Boneville, but I rectified it a couple of years later when the retail release of TTH was made. I've purchased every Telltale season since then (sometimes multiple times for multiple platforms). :)

  • I've been on board since they were selling Sphinx on the front page.

  • First heard of: Watching a review of the first half of season 1. I had no idea up to that point what Sam and Max even was. It looked funny. Now it's my favorite everything ever.

    First contact: Someone ported Bone episode 1 to Mac. I played a trial. I don't like that trial. It quit while I was in the middle of playing Hide and Seek

    First owned: either Season 1 or Ice Station Santa. I don't remember. Grandmother got me season one. Had a hard time getting it to work in Wine. Glad I don't need my grandmothers account anymore, because I no longer have the info she gave me.

    First purchase: Season 3.

    My only regret is that I don't yet own Tales of Monkey Island.
