Apparently, Telltale developed MI:SE...

According to IGN.com, that is.

I suppose it isn't really a surprise that IGN.com is massively wrong about something again.

  • Now that's just SICK!

    ...
  • Looks like they used the fan-made cover again.

    Also, this made me laugh, "Old timers talk about how much better things used to be and The Secret of Monkey Island proves their point."

    :p "TT Games" is Traveller's Tales, not Telltale.
    I know that.

    And, I actually got the game wrong. It wasn't Indiana Jones, it was Lego Rock Band.

    Here's the review
    Two of the most successful franchises, Lego and Rock Band, have merged together to form Lego Rock Band in hopes of printing money. With the literal success of games like Lego Star Wars and other film properties of the same brand have had more success. Now it’s time for Telltale Games to try its hand at the music property with Lego Rock Band. Is Lego Rock Band a gold mind for Lego fans or just another case of milking the franchise a little too much?
  • They constantly get those two mixed up. Sometimes Traveller's Tales has suddenly developed Sam & Max or Wallace and Gromit, for instance. It's really illustrative for the state journalism (not just game journalism) is in: it's more important to crank out as much crap as possible than to actually verify it. Revenue and all that.
  • It's a very common mistake universally from what I've been able to tell. I've been talking to regular guys in real life and they've misattributed Lego Indiana Jones to Telltale, for example. The names are very similar and it's easy to misinterpret TT as a shortening of Telltale rather than Traveller's Tales. :D

    Surprised there've been no trademark lawsuits, actually. This is exactly the kind of thing trademarking is designed to stop.
  • Here's an even better one. In the following article the headline says Telltale, but the actual article specifically refers to Traveler's Tales. And, then promptly gives credit for Monkey Island to Traveler's. Oops.

    Edit: The article has been fixed, except for the screenshot from ToMI.

    Wow... I've never seen journalism THAT sloppy before.

    Oh, and IGN fixed their mistake.
  • Well, at least both game companies tend to make pretty good games most of the time. So maybe their good reputations can feed off each other??
  • Join together and make LEGO Tales of Monkey Island.
  • Obviously all these game news orgs just have their MS Word autocorrect settings set to change TT to Telltale games since they write about them so much!
