What do you think Telltale will do after BTTF and JP?

posted by PainDealer on - last edited - Viewed by 1K users

When Rise of the Pirate God was about to be released, I was thinking what's the next thing gonna be. I kinda sorta had the answer after finishing RotPG: New Sam & Max game in 2010. While waiting for The Devil's Playhouse I was thinking what's next in line. Later on the Universal deal was announced.

Now there haven't been any releases since the last S&M episode and we're waiting for Back to the Future and Poker Night to kick off. After that there will be Jurassic Park. So when all this is done and wrapped up, what's gonna be next?

  • I expect a continuation of one of their proven properties, personally. I can see them doing Tales, Homestar, or maybe a continuation of Puzzle Agent if that's doing well. Wallace and Gromit seems to be out of the picture(sadly), and I doubt we'll see a Sam and Max Season Four before we see a continuation of something else without a second season.

  • @Secret Fawful said: Futurama.

    I'd lovethat.

  • I will not vote for now because the poll's idea has not been clear to me. Should we vote for what we hope that Telltale will make after those games, or for what we guess Telltale will make?
    If it is the first one, I really hope they will work on the license for Bone. If it is the second one - probably another game at the Inventory.

  • more Monkey Island,

    but, as for new property, I would love another "Indiana Jones" adventure game.

  • @Remolay said: Sam and Max is too soon.

    Lets not forget that Sam & Max Season 1 ended in 2007, the same year season 2 started.

    Even though we had to wait 2 years before The Devils Playhouse, I still think season 4 will come out in 2011-2012. Hopefully.:D

    What he said. If the former, TOMI2. If the latter, more Puzzle Agent and Inventory stuff. Perhaps Puzzle Agent At The Inventory even.

  • More Sam and Max would be awesome. Though Board Game Night At The Inventory with Guybrush, Sam, Raz and Deathspank would be cool.

    I intended it as a kind of a guessing game, but discussing wishes isn't prohibited :)

  • Realistically? This is how I see it.

    More Monkey Island: LucasArts announced no more external development a while back, so this one's highly unlikely.

    More Sam & Max: Probable. There was a gap of only several months between the end of Save the World and the beginning of Beyond Time and Space. Obviously there was a two-year gap between Beyond Time and Space and The Devil's Playhouse, but that's because that season had improved graphics and gameplay, which meant more development time. Now that they have The Devil's Playhouse to work off of, a Season 4 could be finished (comparatively) fast.

    More Wallace & Gromit: Does Telltale even have the license anymore? Either way, I don't think it sold well enough to justify more.

    More Strong Bad: The Chaps haven't updated their site in almost a year (I'm not counting the April Fool's joke since it wasn't a return to regular updates.) Why would they have the time for the even-more-intensive work of a second SBCG4AP? Just consider yourself lucky we're getting Poker Night at the Inventory.

    New license for Bone: Forget it. Warner Bros. picked up the license for a reason. They're making a Bone movie, and they want to be able to make a Bone game to go with it. I guess you can hope that WB will hire Telltale to finish the Bone series (and maybe update the two that came out to look a little less dated), but realistically, that won't happen.

    Puzzle Agent continued: You can tell Telltale really wants Puzzle Agent to be popular and grow into a series. They've been trying to push it as much as possible, to the point of giving it away for free for pre-ordering BttF. But sadly, I don't think enough people are interested to warrant more. (Which is a shame, since I loved it.)

    Something Completely Different at the Inventory: This is completely dependent on how well Poker Night sells. If there is a sequel, I just hope it's something more interesting than poker. It seems if they're going to make "At the Inventory" into a series, the most important element would be The Inventory itself. Maybe we can see a point-and-click adventure starring the four of them. :D

    But most likely, I think Telltale's next project after the two Universal games are done will be something brand new, not a sequel. Telltale's a small studio, but they're getting bigger and attracting more attention with each new game. Back to the Future's a very well-known license, and the news of a BttF game is causing tons of people who have never even heard of Telltale before to start talking about one of their projects. (Hopefully the game will convert these people into full-out fans once it comes out.) When Jurassic Park gets closer, we'll be seeing even more people. This much attention is enough that Telltale might be able to get their hands on an even larger license, or hell, maybe make something original. Whatever they do next, though, I'm looking forward to it.

    Out of curiousity, who's Raz?

    I think Richard from the Looking for Group comics would be an excellent addition to an At the Inventory game.
