Waaaay back, a year ago actually, Brendan Q Fergusson (remember him?) posted this blog and invited comments on
I'd love to hear suggestions for licenses that you think would make for a great adventure style game...
And as it's been a year, and the forum is now the preferred discussion area, may I continue where we left off last July?
Firstly I will say that I am really looking forward to Telltale's first wholly original adventure game. I do sympathise with those who don't like licensed games, but that is probably partially because of the multitude of crappy movie tie-ins we get these days. Mind you there were plenty of crappy movie tie-ins back in the old days too. ET on the 2600. Rambo on the C64. Die Hard.
Anyway I digress. I have just uncovered what would be an amazing license. Amazing I tells you. Set in an established, rich fantasy world. An existing fanbase. A highly respected organisation. And a new movie & spinoff TV series in the works...
" 'The Dark Crystal' created its own world. We are now going to fully explore this universe through the sequel film, which will be followed up with an animated series as well as interactive games and other media," said Lisa Henson." (May 2005)
Any of you Telltale Guys work on LucasArts Labyrinth adaptation back in dark-ages? (also a Henson license, for those not familiar with that game / movie).
Anyway, I see what you're doing with Bone, and man, if all this Dark Crystal stuff happens as that site is reporting, that would be an amazing setting for a new series of adventure games.
