I suppose we'll just have to wait and see how they handle King's Quest, though I imagine they'll have to make it a more traditional adventure game, lest they invoke the rage of King's Quest fans.
I have my doubts about King's Quest: I'm confident that TTG could pull off a great game in the series but we've not heard a thing about KQ since the announcement. I have feeling that game could already be cancelled.
It would be great to see a second season of Back to the Future or Tales of Monkey Island and however I admit that I've gotten a bit tired of Sam & Max after 3 seasons, the Devil's Playhouse was so great I'd be happy to revisit that universe again. There's one thing I would be super excited about though: Telltale making az original IP along the traditions of conventional adventure games. TWD seems very successful in the more mainstream territory so let's hope they'll make enough money to actually fund a project like that.
I have to admit though that the success of TWD also worries me a bit: maybe if the company thinks that big money lies in that gameplay style they'll start making similar games just to cash in. I really hope that won't be the case.
