  • It can be very difficult when they are known for having a lot of problems and serious glitches with their releases, including episode one of TWAU.

  • One guess from them wouldnt matter as much as ur maken it seem....It gives ppl hope and somewhat of a release window even if it would be off by say a few days if they miss it, all in all it would give us more info to go by in a way.

  • glitches? Maybe cuz I have it for PSN n they had time to test it by than but no glitches at all for me

    It would destroy your save if you had a game over or quit in certain areas. It would do the same thing if you tried to rewind to those areas. They released a patch pretty quick, but it was a major glitch and the game shouldn't have been released in that condition. A lot of players didn't even notice it because you can easily finish the entire episode without a game over the first time you play it, and as long as you didn't rewind it your save was okay. You couldn't do anything but delete your save after after it happened though. It would start the game but would show a scene like Bigby and Faith just standing outside the apartments, but you weren't able move or interact with anything.

  • oh wow, that is pretty bad BUT like you said a patch was released pretty quickly so what harm is it really? IMO stick with the choices you made first round of the game and don't change them till the second round of it, or ya know, restart the game from the last save before ya made that choice as you normally are able to do... But again a patch was made, problem was fixed not so bad considering some games are just dang broken.

    That's true. But then again, there IS no point in meteorologists.

    Particularly nowadays when the press constantly confuses them with actual experts on climate change.

  • It would be hopeless to try and guess the actual date.
    I would much rather, they told us, when submision for certification had happend. Then we would know, that it was out of TTG's hands. And we could try to estimate the time ourselfs:)

  • Thats not really a defense for TTG. With alot of companies in the US scaling back human resource problems are common. Working on the episodes one at a time during its production run, (if that is really their process) is probably what creates the bugs, typos, and, oversights that have been common in their products in the first place. Its an inefficient way to work. Id be like a weekly tv show shooting and producing and entire episode during previous week, every week. In reality, most TV shows are nearly complete by the time their season opens. Cant see why TTG would work differently if that is within vein their present their games.

    They should have had the product (in this case The Wolf Among Us) at least 90% complete before they even released the first episode. Then you spend your time refining it, instead of trying to produce it on the fly.

    Welcome to the Telltale Community.

    You did quite right to post here. Telltale are in full swing, and are currently working with both The Walking Dead: Season Two, and The Wolf Among Us. Both games are anticipated to come before Christmas 2013. Telltale staff member puzzlebox posted the following in their blog on November 21:

    "It's busy times indeed here at Telltale HQ as we prepare for the upcoming premiere of The Walking Dead: Season Two... more news on that in the coming weeks!"

    Right now, Telltale use something they call radio silence, when they're finishing up the game, play-testing, awaiting for approval from their partners. They are basically waiting for the partners to return it and they'll be able to put a release date. We should not expect anything from them regarding The Walking Dead until there are only a few days left to the release day. However, puzzlebox also said that we will get teasers about The Walking Dead in the weeks to come before the release.

    I'd definitely expect us to be teasing a little more before then.

  • So Would We Be Getting TWAU Episode 2 This Coming Week Of Thanksgiving? And Prolly Get TWD Season 2 Like Maybe With A Week Or Two Before Christmas?

    Technically, Telltale only have about four weeks from tonight to release both games before Christmas. The odds are good for a release of any game in one or two weeks, and the next game one week later. I don't think Telltale want to release their games the week before Christmas as the game would hit the Christmas sales and discounts too early for them to make any good profit the first weeks.

    We should get The Walking Dead before The Wolf Among Us as the release order for both series probably will be something like:

    TWAU 1 - TWD 1 - TWAU 2 - TWD 2 etc.

    So Would We Be Getting TWAU Episode 2 This Coming Week Of Thanksgiving? And Prolly Get TWD Season 2 Like Maybe With A Week Or Two Before Christmas?

    You're not the only one mate. I always keep this forum open in the background when using the computer, refreshing with wide intervals. Try to get yourself occupied with another game meanwhile. I play Skyrim to kill hours. Other than that, we're all playing the waiting game. The Waiting Dead

    i think episode two smoke and mirrors might not be out until the console wars die down with xbox one out today and the ps4 in Europe next week telltale don't want to push people back in the 7th gen gameing until the buzz has died down

  • i hope that episode two will be released this week, i played the entire first season of TWD when all the 5 episodes where already released so i am not used to have to wait to play an entire game. It´s kinda annoying to me, i hope i can get along well but the waiting is killing me :p

  • Geez I really HOPE thats not the reason, they should know one game hell not even a full game at that would stop people from buying what they are gonna buy, personally if that is the case infact than I am sorta sad and disappointed in TellTale for really thinking it would matter, who cares about console wars? Would never think a dev would none less a company whose games are not even out on said console.

  • This is gonna sound stupid but think on it, thought of this when outside looking at the moon haven a cig,
    You all noticed how Bigby at the trailer for ep 2 was more in his werewolf type form than full on wolf form right? Well since he looks the typical werewolf, normally in lore werewolves turn under the full moon, so what if TellTale is going off of that and waiting till the full moon to release ep2?

    Werewolf=Full Moon
    Full Moon=Episode 2 due to how Bigby looks in trailer?
    Profit= ????

  • edited November 2013

    I don´t think that´s the case, they will release the episode when it´s ready. But it´s kinda a funny theory :p. The next full moon i think it´s the 17th of December and i don´t want to wait that long either

    But who says it isn't ready? if they do plan to release it on a certain date they could just be holding it even tho its totally finished :)

  • Then how would they change the direction slightly to include/change/remove a few aspects according to feedback? Most companies take feedback into account for sequels but have to accept the canon they've created. I'm glad Telltale isn't like that.

    That's the traditional release model, which works quite well for some companies. Telltale does it different, it's decidedly their way of doing things. You have all the right in the world not to like it or pass the ship as it starts sailing. And indeed many real fans of Telltale wait until a Season is finished before they buy. But when you've come aboard for the whole wild ride out of your own free will, complaining about every bump doesn't really make sense.

  • I think TTG would tell their own fans before they told other companies first. It's probably not a reliable source.
