What is your opinion about TellTale at this point?

I'm sure the community has varying opinions about TellTale at this point. What do you, the player, have to say regarding their execution of the Walking Dead Game so far?

Personally, I've done my best to remain hopeful, thinking that the two-month wait for episode 2 was typical of TellTale's release strategy. We finally get episode 2 and, lo' and behold, we have an assortment of bugs to contend with. Some are having their saves corrupted, choices from the previous episode don't tranfer, some were unable to start the game to begin with, and others are simply unable to download the second episode at all. On top of this, many are already speculating that the third episode won't release until next month!

My hope is running out, and disappointment is gradually setting in at this point.

    that may be true but you can also blame the FPS genre for so many revolutionary new and amazing things that have impacted every genre in a good way aswell

    This is totally off-topic, but I don't think that games that didn't mainstream well are gone for good. They're not being released by big publishers very often, but if you take indie games into consideration, I think this is actually a great time for weird niche stuff. With things like Steam and XBLA and PSN, a small team can make and release a game on a low budget and have a good chance of finding enough of an audience that they can make their money back. I agree that the stuff you see on the shelf at Gamestop isn't particularly inspiring, but there's a lot more interesting stuff out there if you go looking for it.

    An example of what I'm talking about. Homeworld. A very complex game... They dumbed it down and didn't get the numbers they wanted so they closed it down altogether. The tribes series almost closed down completely as well, but someone recently bought the rights.

    Absolutely, Amanita Design is a favorite of mine.

    Yeah, a prime example would be State of Decay. It's like TWD meets Red Dead Redemption; it's awesome! And the fact that an MMO version is planned after it only makes me giggle in excitement.

    and of course first person viewpoint is obviously a more realistic portrayal of reality than any other perspective, i mean i dont even know what my ass looks like when i walk, but i know what every 3rd persons perspective main characters ass looks like when they walk

  • I feel like I'm Charlie Brown and TWD EP 3 is a football being held by Lucy/TTG. I get excited and as soon as I get ready to kick the ball...well u all know what happens next. LOL I'm starting to get a little anxious for EP 3!:D

    don't worry, man...we all are. If there is a season two I plan on not buying the episodes until they are all released. I will never buy into this shit again.

  • And you are your average extremely disrespectful money driven industrialized game developer.

    Love,
    No longer a fan.

  • From all the bugs I'm hearing about though, all I want is TellTale to fix them.
    I don't care when they release an episode because I'd rather have something good than a rushed release, but with all the bugs people are having in Ep 3 (InvisiDuck, Falling under the train and into the void, Corrupted saves etc) my faith is not at its highest point.
    TellTale, mind patching a few of these :D?
