Generic 'Telltale should make...' thread

Was this ever discussed as a potential license? The book series is immensely popular and I guess the license isn't too expensive since the TV series bombed. The stories contain quite a bit of detective work and therefore could probably easily adapted into a computer game, probably as a kind of side story to the ongoing story arc - I mean, there are tons of novellas and short stories already.

  • no,
    no full throttle game is like no full throttle game at all :(

  • @BlankCanvasDJ said: Besides, a Full Throttle without Roy Conrad is no Full Throttle at all.

    I know this might be blasphemous, but I'm pretty sure another actor could fill the role of Ben sufficiently. Roy Conrad was marvelous, no doubt, but I wouldn't say he's completely irreplaceable. It's just a matter of finding the right replacement, and not just hiring the first low-pitched, gravelly-voiced actor they find.

  • Pff. how about just sticking with the genre. What has Phil Anselmo done lately?

  • @FrankT said: Maybe they could bring back Rik and Ade and make some new episodes of Bottom! Now the question is... where does the adventure element fit?

    If TellTale got their hands on it it would all be all quick time event saucepans to the face.

  • Yes... that's true.. oh! Wait! I've a better idea....

    what if they could make episodic games of Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of the Worlds?!?!?! Yeah! That has a lot more adventure value! And, since a new version is being released soon, the voice actors should be easier to reach!

  • Babies with Big Fish Games.

    Oh, and Sherlock Holmes.

  • I think it is awesome that Telltale has revived the point and click adventure genre as it has always been one of my favourites. I'll be honest, I didn't much care for 'Back to the Future' or 'Jurassic park' but I really thought they nailed 'Tales of Monkey Island' (might be nostalgic for me though) and I was blown away by 'The Walking Dead' I would honestly rate it a 9/10 and can't wait for the future episodes.

    I'm very happy to hear that they have obtained the license to remake 'King's Quest' a Sierra classic point and click. I'm curious if anyone has any other idea's for other point and click adventure games.

    I think Tell Tale should take a crack at a 'Star Trek' adventure game. In my opinion there has never been a Star Trek game that actually captured what made the series so great. Good stories and great characters, every recent attempt at Star Trek has been solely based on combat which in reality was a very small part of any of the television series.

    Anyone else have any ideas for some new point and click games?

  • Scooby-Doo
    The Saint
    Agatha Christie's Poirot

  • A Serbian Film
    The Human Centipede
    August Underground Trilogy
    Mondo Caine
    Robogeisha
    Sukeban Boy

  • Personally, I was very impressed with the job they did on Back to the Future and Jurassic Park, which are both Universal properties. I understand they also have Law & Order, which is also Universal. Taking that into consideration, I think Telltale could reinvigorate and renew interest in my favorite show of all time: Quantum Leap! Imagine if they could work with Don Bellisario as a consultant and actually get Scott Bakula and Dean Stockwell to reprise their roles via voiceover. I can almost guarantee the QL community would get on board with this 100%! In fact, I personally know the person who helped coordinate the 2009 Leap Back Convention in LA (which Don and Scott attended).

    Another series that could possibly be done well would be Sliders. Both of these series have huge cult followings. I'd love to see what Telltale could do with these properties!

    So, what do you all think? And what else would you like to see?
