original telltale games

posted by Anonymous on - last edited - Viewed by 282 users

having just read dan's recent interview @ inside gamer online.. I really hope telltale designs an original game.. I think it will give them a lot more creativity and freedom as compared to working on a license, when you have to please the core audiences fans and cant really stray from the original characters or story.. an original title anything could come up while making the game that they could include.. anybody got any ideas for what would make good adventure games?

those characters from texas hold em would be great..seems I'm one of the few who likes dudeburrough.. but I think it would be great if the storyline involved him being on a reality show..or hit reality show.. and you see how characters behave differently to him once he becomes a star..you could also have a lot fun making fun of reality shows..just a thought :D

  • I've always been fond of space/sci-fi comedy. Like Space Quest. Or, as that article said, since Syberia is such an influence, how about a parody that makes fun of that kind of world? I didn't really care much for Syberia, myself, but it was really more because of technical issues (Kate walked too slow, not much character interaction, etc.). There's all kinds of things they can do. I just want them to start making loads of games, because only 4-6 hours of Bone once every 6 months probably isn't going to hold me over. :)

    thats a good idea.. jokes about how people are only interested in shooting things and the like :)) and the dumbification of video gamers!

    They can make all of the original games that they want ... just as soon as they make a deal with Steve Purcell to bring us the Sam and Max 2 that we are so desperate to get! Brings tears t' me eyes thinkin' about how close we came t' it and dinna git it! :((

    I disagree somewhat about the creativity issue, though. Depending on the license, the feedback from the original owner, and the available tools, I think it's very easy to make a game that is 100% original in story line and delivery while still adhering to any constraints of the original characters. You almost make it sound like total freedom will guarantee true originality. That's hardly the case.
