[quote]Steve Purcell - I'm really excited creatively to be working with Telltale. The idea of the smaller format games is like TV in a way because you get a chance to re-examine the direction you're taking and respond to input from the fans. Many times you'll see a TV series find it's way as it progresses and the creators get a chance to hone in on what they discover are the strengths of the property. Telltale is open to trying different approaches so it's the ideal creative situation for me.
Gamecloud - What input will you personally be giving to the game?
Steve Purcell - I'll work with their team to create a story line in which we can grow the world over time. Sam & Max's office is already a rich environment and I imagine a story that starts in their neighborhood and expands outward over time. I like self-contained stories but with an undercurrent of something bigger that could link the chapters together. I'll plan to offer some character designs and dialog and mostly a lot of bothersome opinions about everything.[/quote]
Ooh - more discussion about the episodes having a bigger undercurrent / theme spanning them all.
