What about a Full Throttle episodic adveture?

So just like most you, annoyed how the last two Full Throttle games got cancelled. Just an idea for Telltale, how about a Full Throttle episodic series?
Either have the series given over to Double Fine from LucasArts and with Telltale releasing it or somehow with LucasArts.
Also to try to have Roy Conrad voice again Ben otherwise wouldn't be the same.

    I'm sure that there is somebody out there who could fill his shoes if there were to be another Full Throttle game. It's just a matter of finding them, and not just getting some cheap replacement whose voice bears no resemblance to Roy's.

  • I am still very interested in a Full Throttle sequel by TTG. I only request that Tim Schafer be involved at some level.

    Agreed. I'm sure Telltale could pull it off without him, but it needs his touch and input to make it as truly great as the last one.

    Another thing to consider about a potential Full Throttle sequel; 2D or 3D?

  • 3D, definitely. I'm trying to think of it in a style that Telltale would do. The 3D didn't affect Tales, or ruin it for Tales, nor did it wreck Sam and Max.

    And another thing, if you look at the original Full Throttle there really aren't any four letter words or anything gory. None of the Telltale games have any of this either. This is seriously right up their alley. :D

    Quoth the hyperkinetic rabbity thing: "That's none of your DAMN business computer!"

    Definitely 3D. The 3D models for Hell on Wheels looked pretty good for 2003, except that Ben was entirely too squinty... I imagine TTG could do well with a similar visual style.

  • @Vitas said: Oh my mistake, didn't know Roy died. Well maybe they could get Mark Hamill to voice him lol.
    But still would be cool Mark Hamill :D

    He died of lung cancer a few years ago. :(
    (Conrad, that is, not Hamill.)

    James McCaffrey who is voicing Max Payne has a close resemblance to Roy Conrads in my opinion, he could be a good candidate.

    But I would love a new FT game, I liked the first one very much. :)

    I haven't seen that movie (and don't want to) except for this scene. Which I thought was pretty funny.

  • If anything, Tales of Monkey Island showed us that Telltale could give games a serious side to them, as opposed to the zany side that is Sam and Max.

    Throttle could really take itself seriously if Telltale does it right. Which they would. In a heartbeat. If anything, the two new properties (Future and Jurassic) they acquired seem like the kind that won't be too cartoony or silly.

  • I will also say this. An adventure game like Full Throttle would be a real challenge for the folks over at Telltale. The original kept things very much grounded in reality. There were no giant bees or talking animals or voodoo powers or magics of any kind. I don't consider hover-technology to really be any sort of magic...hope you all feel the same.

    For Throttle, the game would have to have a coherent and believable story that is fleshed in reality. No falling back on any sort of secret powers. Every action would be influenced by human motivation, just as the first game was. Again, maybe not what Telltale was looking for, as a lot of their stories take place in fantasy worlds. But I sure as hell would love to see them try.
