A Telltale Joker game idea (PLEASE CONSIDER IT TELLTALE)
This is an idea that I've been thinking about after finishing the game and the idea itself could expand Telltale's own lore with the Batman mythos. Specifically the Joker
This is perhaps the first time we get to shape and see the kind of Joker that would come out of it, and I found both version to be the best I've seen since the Heath Ledger performance. What's so different is that we now have to versions of the Joker and to me presents itself with a huge opportunity to expand the lore even further with this character
The idea is that this game would be a three episode like "The Walking Dead: Michonne" game, and the game would follow the same narrative, but the only difference is the setting as you'll play as either the Villain or Vigilante Joker. Each version while in the same narrative would have it's own cast of supporting characters and their own choices. It's through those you can shape your Joker and cement him in this universe. For me Vigilante Joker would fill the Red Hood role in this universe
Basically the game would start with John in Arkham, which Arkham Asylum would change depending on the choice at the end of season 1, and he would meet Harvey Dent, which again would depend on the choice of his behavior if he's still Harvey Dent or Two-Face and his role will be determined in this, and as John depending on your alignment would either help him or bring out the Two-Face persona. Then it would continue with a breakout in Arkham were a number of individuals escape. John included, but Dr Leland would be there injured from the explosion and you would be given a choice to either leave her and succumb to the injury or help her and tend her wounds. Each would depend based on the villain or the vigilante route and would be given a bonus choice based on it. Like villain route were you actually make Leland suffer until she dies or vigilante that you get her away from harm after you help her. Harvey Dent's role would also be depended as Two-Face is among those that escape, but Harvey Dent won't and you would be given a choice to either force out the Two-Face persona and bring him or just spare Harvey Dent and leave him.
Then after the breakout it would continue as John would be part of a team consists of the villains. Among them is Penguin, Victor Zsasz, and whatever villains that can work in this universe. Thought about calling it the "Society". This would also tie into the bigger DC Universe if Telltale would consider it. Like a Telltale Superman game. Ultimately there will be moments in the game were Joker has to choose, and again will involve the Villain/Vigilante(the good one) route. Would Joker kill an innocent or save them?
The setting itself needs some world, but you get the idea of where it's heading. Depending on the route this Joker would have his own cast and storyline. And even form friendship with some. This would cement Joker as either a true or anti-villain or and anti-hero. I'm thinking in the Vigilante route there would be a young girl he bonds with. Like the Joker's daughter?
Need to think about the setting but if they have the technology to do it like what has been done in the "Same Stitch" episode then a three episode would deliver just that
What do you think of this idea? Should Joker have his own episode based on either Villain/Vigilante? What ideas would you bring to this?
