I don't want to be mean or insulting, but I gotta say, Telltale ought to revamp this website before they start really marketing this game. It is truly an ugly and confusing-to-navigate website. It's the first corporate site I've seen that looks like something from Geocities. When they start putting out ads for this game and people come to check it out, I think the amateurish look of the website will cause many people to not even give the game a chance.

The company logo also leaves something to be desired.

  • or Kevin's lime bars.
    I think I felt my tongue just shrivel... Are they anything like lemon bars? They sound interesting, though.


    I'm also not entirely keen on the construction of the website, but it works well enough I suppose. I'm not big on the pale blue color, but maybe it will change again sometime. It's at least a bit better than the wood panelling ;). How about changing it once a month, like the menu color on the Sony PSP? Except not so much pink. So many pink-ish months on that thing. The front page is a bit cluttered, it seems, but I like having all the information at hand. I wish the movie wouldn't play automatically, though. I admit, I expected a bit more from the TTG logo apart from a disturbing Mickey Mouse shape.

    I don't know how a newcomer would react to the website, but I haven't stormed off in disgust just because it doesn't look exactly like I would want. I think most websites aren't that perfect anyway, but I still visit them because of the content. Better navigability on most websites would alleviate most of the problems I personally have, though. Also, the forum is kinda buggy, so that's frustrating.

    I'm not hating...I just use forceful description to make a point. [:">] I really, really want to see this company succeed. :x

    It seems that I'm mostly wrong if most people didn't notice any of this.

    But like someone else just said, when it comes to design, less is more. This website could be sharper and easier to navigate without losing any of its content. The logo could be improved by making it simpler looking (and perhaps a little more stylistic).

    see now look what you made em do.. personally i liked it before..the white black blue thing in the middle is not good on my eyes....

    and while we got people being overy critical of websites everyone got check mine http://www.jazzyjefffreshprince.com and give me sum feedback
  • I'm not big on the pale blue color, but maybe it will change again sometime.
    Hehe... Request granted, it seems. /:) They didn't have to change it on MY account... O:) :D That was certainly sooner than I expected. I love the change, though. Of course, darker colors were always to my liking anyway. B-)

    But if we're all going to make such a big deal about this, how about being able to customize the site to each of our own personal tastes? One of the things I like about the My.yahoo.com is I can change how the page is formatted from the color of the background to the layout of the information. I really don't think it's necessary, though, since the Telltale page isn't my starting homepage anyway, and Telltale is still so new, I'm currently more interested in seeing where they grow and take off than how I can control or manipulate how they look to me. If that makes any sense... However, I still like the color change, so boy am I appeased!
    Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince Tour Coming Soon!
    They're going on tour? :O Neato... I thought those days were all over, but I guess not. Certainly a very informative site, and more than I thought I'd ever care to know about JJ&FP.

    but if u ask me, the combination of dark blue and black, with white, is really REALLY bad... its hurting my eyes... and that alaiset caveman should be replaced by a picture of Bone or some other char form TTTHD... because its really awful.. and that ariel font in the top of the page is looking a bit unprofessional... but other from that no compliants.. :)

    imo if u can make the whole site look like the bone section it would be great...



    pls excuse my bad english...

    The new Bone section looks really good!

    Yeah, I think the background looks better without a pattern, but the dark blue/bright white contrast is a little blinding.

    I also think the t t g logo looks a million times better when not on a white background, as it is in the new Bone section.
  • I like the new color - but I really like the suggestion of each user being able to have their own customized page. It could be as basic as just having color choices - nothing major. Or, it could be like one of those pages where you get to choose which stuff goes where on the main page. Maybe I want the Blogs front and center instead of the video preview window or something... you get my drift.

    Anyway - I think it is great that people have some constructive criticisms. Let them rail away. Anytime you get too complacent it is bad - it is always good to have some dialogue going on about EVERYTHING. Some people don't like the new colors - good, if everyone was satisfied with everything this company did then they wouldn't have much motivation to turn out really great stuff, and that goes all the way up from website design to games to who has to be locked in the closet with Brendan.

    Speaking of criticisms: I like the dark color, but I don't like how on my browser it snaps up light blue for a second, and then goes to the new color. Also some of the forum pages are not set to autofit to the size of my browser window - some of them run off the right side and my monitor is too small to see everything at once.

    EDIT: That color thing has been fixed! Thanks guys

    I don't think it would be worth the programming effort. This is not a portal site people visiting multiple times a day ('course some of us do :D ).
    If you really want to customize the site I recommend a few lines of greasemonkey code (assuming you're using firefox).
