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.

  • @Darth Marsden said: OK. I'll bite. Tell me WHY Telltale should make a Rupert game.

    ...and do it in rhyme.

    (See, I know what Rupert the Bear is all about)

    Forget rhyme, i will explain

    You see.. the Rupert Bear universe is perfect for video games
    Great characters, Amazing adventures and Comedy
    If you ever seen the Nelvana produced 1991-1997 series, You can understand my point as to why video games based on the Rupert license should be

    Telltale can be a perfect candidate for the Rupert license since it does involve adventure from the get-go (again, watch the 1991-1997 series to understand my point)

    for my bottom line, watch this episode (in 3 parts)
    part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wB6t1IPN97w

    P.S. If they do, I want them based on the 1991-1997 series and NOT the travesty known as "Rupert Bear: Follow The Magic"

  • Since Adult Swim has let Brock from Venture Bros in Poker Night 2, i was thinking what about a Harvey Birdman adventure game. It would be cool to see how TTG would handle a Harvey Birdman game in my opinion.

  • Max Payne 4 (if Rockstar decides not to)

  • Eric Shanower's Age of Bronze comics. I think his well-researched, archeologically accurate depiction of the Aegean bronze age world would make a pretty neat setting for a game.

  • Okay, it dawned on me that Telltale never actually had a series that completely took place in space. And yes, it would work, Space Quest took place in space, and Stark Trek had a point & click adventure game. But I assume Telltale is never going to do Space Quest, and Star Trek kind of is too expensive, so why not go with an alternative? I mean, let's not do Spaceballs, despite me wanting such thing. No, let's use that other parody.

    Galaxy Quest.

    And I don't mean the film about the actors who go into space and crap, no, I'm talking about the television series within that movie. Like, make it obvious it's based on the series that never actually was a series in real life.

  • More comic games! If Fables is good I think we could see loads of DC and Marve comic book games because there are a lot of characters who need video game and TTG can bring it to us.

  • I'd kill for a Penny Arcade point and click game.

  • South Park would be another idea for an adventure game. Anyone else think it would be a good idea?

  • @ryannumber1gamer said: South Park would be another idea for an adventure game. Anyone else think it would be a good idea?

    I can see it working. Besides, they've tried pretty much every other genre.

  • I am about to describe the end of Grim fandango do not read on if you do not want this spoiled.

    At the end of grim fandango Manny calaravera and meche close the blind as the train pulls off. I suggest at the start of Grim Fandango 2 if such a thing ever came to fruition that manny and meche are attacked by an assasin from the DoD just as the train pulls off and are sprouted. They then find themselves inside a deeper underworld where they bump into salvador, they team up and find out that there has only been one person who has ever escaped the deeper underworld and that person was the founder of the DoD and who designed and commisioned the building of the number 9 express, He did this because he knew where the dead would end up if they did not safely cross the land of the dead and thought that thoese that lead good lives should be rewarded for such without having to take the long perilouse journey. He was granted the ability to do this because thoese that escape the deeper underworld are granted a wish at the end of there journey. Manny is in trouble from the start. If you die in the land of the dead before paying off your debt your sins are manifested in the deeper underworld as an evil copy of yourself that would stop at nothing to stop you and put you into a even deeper deep undworld. Meche and salvador do not have a copy as they both had a golden ticket and had lead good lives. Even though manny is granted a golden ticket at the end of grim fandango one it isn't technically his. During manny confrontation with his evil clone you discover what manny had done in life and get a greater back story. Thats is what I have come up with so far. So get your art team together taletalle you cant leave the greatest adventure game of all time burried in the land of the dead.
