Homestar Add on

I think there should be add on's where you can bring in an extra player or a replacement player. You could charge a few dollars for each one, and it brings with them some new dialog, actions etc.

I'd like to see:
a) Homestar Runner
b) Homsar or StrongSad (Either could be hilarious)
c) Nelson Tethers
d) Murray, the all powerful talking demonic skull - who was severely underused in ToMI
e) Doc Brown


Anyway, I guess if I had to pick one, I'd narrowly go for Murray over Homestar but it's a tough pick.

Anyone else got characters they think should be added as a purchasable add on?

  • I do not think it would be likely to use MI characters but come one Guybrush would be awesome to have at the table.... Or Morgan.

    Oh god, Morgan and Tycho at the same table?

  • Yeah I played Poker Night then ToMI and didn't see why they didn't use Guybrush or Morgan is it issues with LucasArt

  • Yeah I imagine their deal with Lucasarts didn't include using them in other games... I think they got as close as they could by re-dressing the winslow model and giving him the same voice actor... and giving him the generic name "the host"

  • I imagine it would be difficult getting coversations for all the characters. I mean keep in mind, each character addition, the number of conversations they need to have goes up exponentially.
    4 characters: 6 two-way convo types
    5 characters: 10 two-way convo types
    6 characters: 15 two-way convo types
    This isn't even counting the three-way conversations.

  • This would be extraordinarily difficult.

    1. Securing the rights to use a character from (insert work here), unless they want to just stick to Sam and Max/Homestar Runner/TF2/Penny Arcade characters.

    2. Making a model for that character, although Telltale has plenty of models they can reuse, like they did with Max and Strong Bad. (The Heavy is technically a reused model, although they had to modify it to work in the Telltale Tool.)

    3. Getting a voice actor to record lines for that character.

    4. Getting William Kasten, Matt Chapman, Gary Schwartz, and Kid Beyond all back to record lines, because this new character would be no fun if the other characters weren't having conversations with him.

    5. Most likely getting Matt, Mike, and Jerry back to help with writing the new lines for Strong Bad and Tycho. (Anyone know how involved Steve Purcell and Robin Walker were with this game? Matt, Mike, and Jerry were all credited for "Additional Writing," though.)

    If Telltale wants to go through the work to add even a single new character, they'll most likely just make a sequel, not an update.

  • I see it more likely that they pull a L4D2 and make an entire new game with the characters for the same price.

    Yeah, but it would be wierd for it to be another poker game, they have 2 out already.

    But there needs to be at least 10000000 more, it's not like telltale have a specific genre they use for every game they make.;)
