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.

  • I'd buy some, as long as it didn't have a warning label declaring that it is considered toxic by the State of California.

  • Besides "Rupert", The Moomins is also great potential for Telltale
    like Rupert, The Moomins has a world that has promise for great adventures

    here are some samples of the great adventures with The Moomins

  • The Moomins are very popular here, but I think the animated series are mostly aimed at children. I haven't read any of the originals despite owning a couple of nice hardcover editions, but I think those are more adult oriented?

  • I'd REALLY love a Marvel Telltale game, maybe one about S.H.E.I.L.D?
    OR a Harry Potter Telltale Game, where it takes place in hogwarts and you play as a new student.
    I WOULD BE IN HEAVEN

  • I sort of feel that Telltale should stay away from pursuing an overly children-aimed cartoon series. Just my opinion.

    If they choose something which has a really young demographic, then they will need to make an extra effort to make the writing and narrative witty, just to add something to draw in older gamers.

    Sometimes, superheroes can be a bit tacky. Just saying.
    They're a bit one dimensional, I think that's why newer superhero movies are a bit more gritty. A hero with issues, gives the character depth. Something which I think is over used to be honest.

    I know Walking Dead is a graphic novel but the success lies in the fact that everyone loves killing a zombie don't they! It was well written and the graphic style lent something different and added to the atmosphere, it was well done.

    I think that The Wolf Among Us will win people over with it's narrative.

    A comic based series needs something like this in order to attract the widest gaming audience possible, not just the hardcore fan base.

    Yes, that's why I said a game about SHIELD. It's an agency that gets rid of supernatural threats. They aren't superheroes.

  • I would love to see TellTale Games do a point and click adventure game based on Creature From The Black Lagoon!

  • This is a dream but a Band of Brothers game based around Easy Company in WW2. That would be awesome.

  • The Curse Of Lono... THE ADVENTURE GAME!

  • TellTale should make a physic-based spin-off party game where you use different keys on the keyboard or buttons on your controller to pick up the razor and trim Kenny's mustache and sideburns, sort of like Surgeon Simulator :D
