Congrats Telltale!

I just admire you more and more as time goes by. I read on Next-gen that there will be released a title each month in the future. That's really great news (at least for me!) Now, you've got CSI, Bone2 AND Sam & Max2 on your hands. I'm really happy you've got the CSI licence, and that it probably will be retail version. I can see a lot of improvements there. And since I loved the first two, I'm definitely going to love this one.

Thank you very much for this great news.

Can't wait.

Damn I love you :D

    Congratulations from Italy, too!
    I guess this is the title Brendan Ferguson was working on... ;)
    I hope this won't slow down the works on S&M.
    BTW, GREAT NEWS!

    They're apparently expanding their team size to accomodate the amount of projects, so I wouldn't worry.

    I wonder how long CSI has been in development? The "television license" has been hinted since the Telltale Now press release in June.

    And yes, great news!

  • Even though I'd already heard the rumors, it's good to finally know that they were true. Now perhaps we can play a CSI game with some character (admittedly, I haven't played the other ones, but that just shows how little they appealed to me). Good luck with Ubisoft!

    I think telltale could make a really good game with the CSI franchise. I havent played a great crime drama game in years. Telltales dialogue tree would be awesome for interrogating suspects, really looking forward to this

  • Telltale got CSI? thats great. I played the first CSI game and it was painfully easy and short.(Finished the game in a couple hours I think) I really think there is a lot of room to improve the line of these games. I hope the team is dark enough for these games. It is a bit of a change going from something bright and fluffy like bone or sam & max to something like CSI.

    Ehrm.. well I hope they will make a better CSI game than that, but looking at Bone which is also painfully easy and short I kind of doubt it :p

  • Well done Telltale.

    I'm really looking forward to experiencing what your engine is capable of with models based on actual humans, and no filesize restrictions as dictated by the online distribution model.

    I know you probably can't say much, but I'm curious as to whether the plot / script of each CSI will be handed to you from the TV screenwrites, whether you're given some general plot outlines and write your own scripts, or it's some sort of collaboration between Telltale's writers and the TV show writers.

    Did the TV actors voice their parts in the previous games? I assume if so, that they'll continue to do so for the Telltale ones?

  • yeah the voice actors are a must esp for grissom (William L. Petersen). He has credits for the games in his bio I didn't check on the others. I guess that kind of inflates the cost of making the game though since the actors know they can ask for a fair chunk of change. I hope this isn't another one of those online only things....

    Well... Actually I am both a bit happy and sad. Happy to see the company moving forward, as for me, they are the only hope to save the old adventure games from dying. However, I am concerned about the following:

    1- They are already slow in the progress in releasing games
    2- The game I played, Bone Vill was really nice and decently fun, have the taste of good old Lucas games BUT, TOO SHORT as everyone else said, and too easy to be a full game. about them commeting for a game every month, this raises the flag on the quality and effort put into that game.
    3- The price, if you consider it as a short tale game, 19$ is way too much. I can get super games now for that price, and some few months old games for as low as 10$. I personally was over the moon when I heard about the company and their concept of adopting abandoned good old beloved characters, and I bough the game immediately, more as a support rather than anything else. Since its a new company, and we want to support it until it establishes its solid base. But if this is to continue, person has to reconsider seriously. I am not likely to pay 19$ a month to continue finishing the short tale game.
    4- Is CSI their type of games? I feel it like a shift to be honest.

    I am personally and old strong fan of Sam & Max, and please no one takes this personal or as a let down. But if the great Sam & Max adventure game is turned into short tales, I believe this will ruin the whole point. The original game was long, complete, and kind of difficult one. Converting it into a one like Bone Ville is well... like a short freeware game for kids really and does not suit the game popularity.

    I hope this is only the beginning, and that they reconsider. I prefer to wait for another whole year and get a complete game, rather than splitting it into short episodes.

    CROSS MY FINGER - AND WISH FOR THE BEST
