Episode 2,Telltale's original plan.

posted by Araron on - last edited - Viewed by 1.2K users

Hey you all,hows it going? :) So,I was diging through Youtube for some unused lines today,and found some pretty interesting stuff.Though it would be worth sharing. (http://www.youtube.com/user/xAzureIzumix)
Episode 2 Highlights:

-Brenda's voice used to be a lot different.
-If you didn't cut Mr. Parker's leg off at the beggining,it seems that he would get chopped instead of Mark.It would be a very nice interaction!
-The Meat Locker scene was supposed to be much more longer and dramatic,with more lines,argument and interaction when it comes to reviving Larry.Seems this is what the picture from the episode menu was showing us.
-It gets confirmed that the traps belong to the St. John's.
-After stealing/leaving the food,it seems that there was supposed to be a scene leading us back to the Motor Inn.

So what do you think?I didn't listen to all of them,so apologies if I missed something important. ;)

    The Katjaa thanks/scolds Lee for saving Duck/Shawn is still in episode 2,you can talk to her in the barn.She even thanked my shy,silent and undecesive Lee when he did nothing :p

    I should really stop listening to these cut audios, there's some good stuff that I wish was in the game. You hear Doug mentioning that he fixed Clem's radio and I enjoyed the extended argument between Kenny and Larry in the drugstore" I've been in wars!" and Larry: "I'm a patriot!" Kenny:"Youre a prick!" :D

    It seems those excellent voice actors did a lot more work than I thought...

    Thats true.
    Theres some stuff they really should have left. :)

    Clem:Wait,what about Maybelle? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yjmC5gcdQI (4:00))
    Lee:Who??
    Clem:The cow!!
    Lilly:Comon honey,we-we gotta move!

    Telltale :D

    Playtesting. A lot of this stuff was in the episode at one point and as cool as it sounds in isolation it wasn't working when you actually played through the game. There are some cool ideas in there, but most deleted scenes are deleted for a reason.

    Some is also deleted because it steps on the story. We realized as we went that we didn't want Lilly to reveal that she knows your past until the RV scene in episode 3, so that was removed from 2. Things like that.

    Things also get added late if they help the story. For instance, the scene on the road to the dairy where you first meet the bandits wasn't in the game until a couple weeks before it came out.

    I'm sad Clem's line about the cow got cut.

    It seems like the writer's never even planned Crawford when they made that preview.


    We deliberately left Crawford out of the preview.

    But the scene with dead Doug/Carley seemed so cool, why'd you guys cut it out?:(

    I'm just curious about the trailer for Episode 2. It made it seem like you had a lot more planned for the bandits at first. Obviously, you didn't want to hint anything malicious about the St. Johns, so I understand that totally, but there's a scene where Lee is frantically running away, and Kenny talking about there was going to be a war. Were there more plans with the bandits originally, or was that just to throw people off about the true villains of the episode?

    Yall should've kept the other version of getting the keys from Lee's brother. The one where Doug goes out and blows a car horn to distract the walkers.

  • Aww man, that would have been much better. I heard Episode 4 was going to have more dramatic/longer burying scene as well.

    Edit:Carley mentions that, maybe, the radio doesnt have any batteries...

    I replayed the first two episodes, I saw the previews too, helped refreshing my memory :)
    Yeah, i know, i keep thinking about how different the game would be if all of those unused dialogues were in-game... Talking about re-playing the game, does anybody get a different feel with the story? I get some awkward kind of 'nostalgia' when playing the game, especially in episode two. I Hate-Loved going through the Meat locker scene again.

    Telltale :D

    Gotta love Clementine. I wish the cow was still alive, maybe Maybelle had superpowers and killed all of the walkers and flew away to safety with a milk-based jetpack?

    I wish there had been more interaction with Lilly during the episodes, maybe less people would have got to hate her... you know, a lot of people like Kenny just because you met him first, and got to know him more. Same with Carley and Doug; I spent half(?) of the first episode with Carley, while i just got to talk with Doug a couple of times. I'm guessing that Lilly telling you about your past just wouldn't have worked out... :/

    Maybe you'll release a directors cut later on. Peter Jackson did it, maybe you can too.

  • All this makes me think that episode 4 or 5 has unused audio concerning Christa's pregnancy and Lee informing the group of Chuck's death.

    @Jake
    Your answer suggests that these cut audios were fully functional and completed scenes,is that the case?
    I understand that you had your reasons to cut them, due to story reasons and pacing, but I'd love to see them.Don't let them go to waste,why not include them as deleted scenes in the retail version? :)
    I really enjoyed these characters and I'd enjoy seeing more of them, it would also give me a reason to buy the game again.
