game ideas to convince telltale to make!

posted by bigtopfrank on - last edited - Viewed by 788 users

considering telltale seems to have an excellent game engine, and it seems that some people are coming up with some good ideas that they think telltale should make . . . i thought i'd start a dedicated thread for it. i think telltale should give us a new game election!! (for those of us who have bought their games!)

there's already been a couple of suggestions, notably these:

rocko's modern life -

and discworld -

and there was this old post as well -

and somebody mentioned futurama, but methinks the licensing of such would be far too expensive to obtain (i could be wrong though!)

my ideas extend to adult swim cartoons, as i love these in all shapes, but my choices would be these:
the venture bros -
http://www.adultswim.com/shows/venturebros/
aqua teen hunger force -
http://www.adultswim.com/shows/athf/

and a final one . . . i'm adding this because i'm watching it at the moment:
the adventures of brisco county jr. (with bruce campbell voice acting, of course.)

i also found this thread from a couple of years ago . . .

  • As always my answer is Batman, Batman, Batman.

    Venture Bros. is good if only because it would hook them up with Jim Thirlwell. I'd like to see something original from them though and if not I'd be happy if they just stick to creatively worthwhile licenses like they have with Bone and Sam & Max.

  • i think you might be on a winner with the thirwell thing there, junkface!

    it actually took me a few episodes before i read the credits properly and noticed his name on there.

    speaking of which, he was born in melbourne! i'm from melbourne! (i'm in melbourne, too!) i think you're from melbourne also, from memory, that you said on another post somewhere . . . that's cool.

    as for batman . . . too much for a license, don't you think? although a really awesome game for the animated series is long overdue . . . actually, a really awesome game for batman is long overdue, not counting that mod (or wad) for doom way back.

  • I seem to recall playing a Batman game (based on one of the movies I think) on my Windows 3.1 back when I was considerably younger. I enjoyed it at the time (being 3 or 4 and all) but looking back now it seems it was probably crap. I remember you could click about in the bat cave until it let you go out in the batmobile. Then you found some random thugs and beat them senseless. Then you questioned them. Then you clicked some more stuff. Absolutely riveting.

  • not sure, private, but you may be talking about the batman returns game.

    from memory, though, it still sucked.

  • That's the one! I never got very far but I played it for ages. It was that or "Krusty's Funhouse". Thank god I have discovered decent games now :)

    Yeah, I hear he went to Camberwell High (damn, the eastern suburbs of Melbourne have produced some wonderfully confronting musicians.) Pity he doesn't seem to get much respect around here.

    As for Batman being too a big a license, you're probably right, but we can always dream; it has such incredible potential if it were handled right.

  • really? i was going to go to camberwell high . . . but i didn't. i actually lived about 100 metres from it at the time. i live near there even now! (funny how you end up moving back to the area of your childhood when you grow up.)

    who else are you thinking of with the eastern suburbs/confronting musicians thang? you've got me curious . . . there's this post - http://www.telltalegames.com/forums/showthread.php?t=852 - where you mention a few interesting people. man, i lent my roland s howard 'teenage snuff film' record to a friend years ago, haven't seen nor heard it since. :(

  • this is probably just me being stupid but when is episode 2 being released???

  • anyways sorry for being off topic. I suggest an adventure game about the simpsons but then again......their license must cost a ton because it is after all the longest running cartoon in history all the way from the tracey ullman show to today!
