The 'stuff Telltale said they'd do' list

posted by Woodsyblue on - last edited - Viewed by 1.9K users
There are a number of things over the years that Telltale have said they would do but for whatever reasons haven't gotten around to yet, so I thought it would be good to compile a list for easy reference. Hopefully, with mutterings and grumpiness, we can finally start seeing some of these things get done.

Things Telltale said they would do and haven't:
Release Sam & Max season 1 and Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures on Mac. [LINK]
Update the Tales of Monkey Island: Launch of the Screaming Narwhal download to the version with Earl Boen as LeChuck. [LINK]
Upgrade the forums.

Edit, stuff added:
Upgrade PC version of The Devil's Playhouse to include NutriSpecs. [LINK]
Release Puzzle Agent on WiiWare. [LINK]
Release Hector and Puzzle Agent 2 on PSN. [LINK1] [LINK2]
Release remaining The Devil's Playhouse episodes on iPad. [LINK]
Create official walkthroughs for Episodes 2-5 of The Devil's Playhouse.

Things Telltale haven't said they would do but should:
Fix Hector episode one subtitles.
Fix Jurassic Park frame rate issues.
Release Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse soundtrack (in physical or digital format).

Edit, stuff added:
Move support for their Playstation games.
Make SBCG4AP for iOS.
Release remaining Wallace and Gromit episodes on iPad.

Now, this thread is more about tying up current loose-ends than hoping for stuff in the future so I'm not going to put down, for example, Strong Bad season 2 or any other game season 2 under 'Things Telltale haven't said they would do but should'. There are other threads for those sorts of requests. I'm also going to refrain from adding snide remarks like 'add gameplay to BttF', because this isn't the place for that.

Now, the current list is just comprised of things off the top of my head, I'm sure there are more and I'll update the list as we go. For the 'Things Telltale said they would do and haven't' section it would be nice to have a link to where Telltale actually said they would do the thing in question. (I can't find a quote where they said they were going to upgrade the forums, but I know it's around.)

  • Adding another one. Finish putting all the Sam & Max season 3 episodes on ipad. I don't got an ipad or iphone but i'm sure other people who do would like to finish playing the season.
  • Make my monster grow!

    They haven't directly promised it, but they were clearly working on it: Android ports.
    The last word I remember hearing on that was that Android devices are too varied for Telltale to be looking into it right now. I'd find the forum post, but I can't remember who said it or where. I know it was more recent than that article, though.
  • Probably in the ask dan thread. I remember that too.

    Edit: Nope, guess I was wrong. Someone from TTG said it somewhere though.

    You mean this post?

    We currently have no plans to do releases on Android. The main reason has to do with hardware. iOS devices all have a similar profile: there's an easily identifiable minimum amount of memory, CPU and GPU power that we can target from an engine standpoint.

    Now think about Android. How many different Android devices from how many different manufacturers are available? In the hundreds. And for the most part, they are all extremely disparate in their hardware specifications. Between this device fragmentation and the fact that most Android devices on the market are not all that great for gaming, we'd rather focus on making our engine better on the platforms we already do support.

    All that being said, I'm a programmer and so I'm not up to speed on what our sales and marketing plans are for the future, so it's entirely possible that at some point we'll start putting our games on Android. But in the meantime I'm afraid it's not in the cards.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. :/
    It was indeed posted in April of this year, over a year after the article on androidpimps.com.
  • Yep, that's the one I was thinking of. Feels like it was longer ago than four months, but then I guess I've had an incredibly long and trying four months.
  • Speaking of which, I never got my prize for winning the bttf contest. I mean even second and third got their prizes.
  • I just had a thought, has anyone got the GoG version of Tales of Monkey Island? If so, I am curious as to which version of Launch of the Screaming Narwhal is on it, the Earl Boen or the Adam Harrington one?

    According to this thread on the GOG.com forums, it's the Adam Harrington version.
