a Flint Paper series?

quoting the almighty DC:

"Right now, we're still building the Telltale brand, and not having enormous marketing budgets to work with for an original title, we work with these franchises that are known, and that helps build an audience for Telltale," said Connors. "And as Telltale gets more cred, our ability to take something -- some crazy idea, and believe me there's plenty of crazy ideas kicking around out there -- and execute it and bring it to life in one of our episodic formulas or as a standalone episode... the groundwork's all there."

"So we're in a really good place for that to start popping up, whether it's from things kind of shooting off like a Flint Paper series or something completely different than Sam & Max or Homestar," continued Connors.

How cool would that be? Like a Flint Paper Film Noir detective series! Wow :):D Even if they did one flint paper special episode to test the waters..and they could try that all in black and white..it could be really well done :) I'm excited by the mere possibility :p

  • This also makes me think about the game on Whose Line Is It Anyway where Colin Mochrie and Ryan Stiles would act out a film noir scene based on a suggestion from the audience of a boring place to work. Those were always hilarious!

  • Oh yeah! Flint would constantly narrate over everything that happened!:D
    I miss Whose Line.....:(

  • It would be really cool...

    Flint voice:
    It was a trap, the woman was with THEM... I am now hidden behind this large crate but they'll find me. I reloaded my gun, that they come...

    BANG BANG...

  • OK, this might seem a little random, but Life on Mars fans, who here would LOVE to see Flint Paper pair up with Gene Hunt? That would be the coolest. detective duo. ever! (Sorry, i meant SECOND coolest.) The two would never be able to get anything done since they'd b constantly beating each other up and saying the most sexist, racist and any other -ist statements imaginable!

  • To be honest, I think DCI Hunt wouldn't have any tolerance whatsoever for an American PI.

    What did you think of Ashes to Ashes, DoctorDodge? It had it's charms, but I think I prefer John Simm to Keeley Hawes

    I thought Ashes to Ashes was a bit weak, to be honest.

    Still - "I was shot. When I woke up, I was Flint Paper, Private Investigator." makes an interesting premise...:p

    Really thinking about it, i don't suppose Flint Paper would put up with Hunt, either. Mainly because i'd doubt he'd be able to understand him!

    I loved A2A, if i'm being honest. Not quite as good as Life on Mars, but Ashes did have the better series 1 finale. I'm never trusting clowns again! (not that i trusted them before, but the show gave me one more reason to assault any clowns i see on sight!)

  • Flint + Hunt wouldn't really work as they are both alpha male characters.
    I always envisioned Flint to be a bit like Lewton (Discworld Noir - great game), with the hardbitten noir type PI. He needs a leggy dame walking in to his office to start a case properly I bet.

    Oh and yeah, A2A doesn't have the charm that LoM had. It's nice seeing the 80s and all, but Sam Tyler >> Alex Drake

    ah, Discworld Noir: the only game where you could play as a werewolf and still get the piss taken out of ya! a true classic, that! (well, if it weren't for the bugs.) Hey Telltale: any chance you could get the Discworld license and do the case files of P.I. Lewton? :D
