For this discussion, Rob and I talked about the news surrounding Telltale Game’s closure.
Today’s impromptu video discusses the announcement that Telltale Games is going under. Relevant news piece:http://gamasutra.com/view/news/327085/Telltale_Games_initiates_majority_studio_closure.php
Recently I started playing the latest game from Telltale: Batman. But going through it, I’m finding myself getting more annoyed than interested in seeing it through. Telltale has changed a lot over the years, and I’m wondering if they’ve gone too far away from what drew me to them in the first place.
The latest IP to come to adventure studio Telltale Games is Batman, and continues Telltale’s brand of adventure game design. With Batman, Telltale has the added pressure of trying to deliver on balancing the two sides of Batman; unfortunately it doesn’t quite get it right.
