This is a question that's been lingering on the minds of a lot of players since the end of season 1, and will probably resurface with the release of season 2.
I want to make absolutely clear that I'm not trying to post a negative critique of the game itself. The game is the whole reason I'm here in the first place. But like many gamers out there, I'm disconcerted about the fact that I can only influence specific events in the story, as opposed to being able to change them completely. A big moment with Duck and the last ten minutes of the game are probably the most obvious examples of this "fixed narrative".
I suppose what I'm really asking the Telltale team is, do you have a lot of back-and-forth conversations about how much a player can or can't alter the basic story? What exactly is the range of options that a player really has? Sometimes I can't help asking out loud what point there is to playing such a game in the first place, when a specific ending that can't be avoided has already been chosen for the player?
