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.

  • Alright, I see my thread has been merged. I suppose this is the best place for it.

  • Maybe a TinTin adventure game would be cool?

  • Maybe after Spielberg and Jackson do The Adventures of Tintin 2: Prisoners of the Sun/ The Seven Crystal Balls/ The Black Island/ The Calculus Affair. But yeah, a Telltale Tintin game would be awesome.

    And Robert Kirkman’s Thief of Thieves would be pretty good. As would Stephen King’s The Stand (comic book would be good).

    Screw it, I’m just gonna do a list.

    The Thing
    Thief of Theives
    The Stand
    King Kong
    Indiana Jones
    The Mummy

  • An idea just came to me in my wake-dream...

    THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES: THE ACTION-ADVENTURE GAME

    Make it happen Telltale.


    No, but seriously, just make a Maniac Mansion/Day Of The Tentacle episodic adventure game already!!! We're screaming for one! All of us!!!

  • With a new Texas Chainsaw Massacre coming out I would love to see them give this IP a chance.

  • I for one, would love for TellTale to do a True Blood game that is based on the books, not the tv series, because the books are much better. I am up to date on the books and i am waiting for the final one in may, but it would be awesome if Telltale does a true blood game based on the books.

    Another game TellTale Games could do is a Breaking Bad game based on the tv show when the series is over. I would love to play as Walt and just go through his life and the tv series.

  • I would love to see Telltale games try and make a episodic game based on the TV series 'Chuck'. Ever since the series ended, I've been longing for more Chuck, and I think Telltale could make a good "season 6".

    The game should have the nerd/spy Chuck as a playable character (of course), and with the help from his friends he takes on villains/terrorists and their schemes. The game should also include fan-favourites such as Sarah, Casey, Morgan, Ellie and Devon, Jeffster and Big Mike. Would be nice to even see some old faces such as Beckman, Anna, Stephen, Carina, Cole, Jill and Shaw.

    It could also be Telltale's first chance to make an action-advenure game. Chuck has the Intersect, and can sometimes get different abilities such as suddenly knowing kung-fu, several languages and important information about people and things. The game could include things Telltale has worked with before, such as puzzles and good, deep stories. But Telltale could also approach combat and stealth with this.

    Telltale, please make this!

  • I love that this conversation is still going. With the recent release of the next story, Cold Days there is plenty of story to build around this group of characters. Especially the plot points of this particular story(not going to list if people haven't finished), show that there is still so much to come and each book could work as one whole episode of the game.
    Plus with the addition of "Side Jobs" and the comics. You get so many more small stories that could come in as a bonus episode or as part of one episode.
    I really think TTG should contact Jim Butcher and talk about developing this.

  • @zerodemon said: Ah well, give it some time, see if any other forum members have anything to say. It may fall back in to obscurity anyways.

    And yes, you should read them. They're pretty awesome.

    Back on topic; If a game was to be made, here are several key questions that would need to be addressed.

    1. Where in the Dresden Files timeline would you like to see a story set?
    2. Would we be playing as Dresden, or some extended universe character?
    3. Would the Telltale Games episodic content formula work for the game?
    4. Would the game be better in another game genre (ie RPG, action adventure etc)?
    5. Under the assumption that Telltale made the game, would you buy this bad-boy?

    Answers to each Question....

    1. Obviously you'd want to start at the beginning, as in the first book. But if Jim Butcher gave permission then they could tell the story of Harry starting when he was younger and just learning his magic abilities.

    2. Honestly you would want to play as Harry. He is the center of the story so you'd want to be playing him.

    3. In my previous post I mentioned doing each book as a episode or you could do multiple episodes per book, which would mean you could spread the book series out over many episodes allowing for content to flourish This would be very attractive for fans of the series.

    4. In truth, Fans of the series would be more likely to enjoy exploring the world of the Dresden files. So using Tell Tale's style of story telling (Sam and Max, Walking Dead, etc) would be just what fans would be looking for. The more detail they go into, the more fans will want to play. This would also introduce gamers to The Dresden Files book series which would benefit both Tell Tale and Author Jim Butcher. Thought there is a paper RPG available for The Dresden Files right now, so that is also a possibility.

    5. I would definitively buy and play the game. I already enjoy Sam & Max as well as Walking Dead. I'm an even bigger fan of The Dresden Files and if I could explore the world of Harry Dresden on a visual level like those games, It would be like getting to not only read the books again but live them!
