  • I always envisioned a Telltale workspace as a place where devs would jump for joy in the morning to go to.

    Maybe back when they were still a team of 80 people, you know, before Bruner started expanding too quickly...

    Whoa, no I haven't. But I can say it's pretty understandable. Also hearing how shitty staff were being treated at their work was shocking. I always envisioned a Telltale workspace as a place where devs would jump for joy in the morning to go to.

  • Definitely. Mixture of high expectations & stardom.

  • Likewise man! Welcome back! How are you doing? And what are your thoughts on Skybound taking over development for The Walking Dead: The Final Season? :smile:

    Dylan my man!! Always a joy seeing ya!

  • Doing well man thanks! And it was shocking to hear honestly. Mixed feelings really. I'm more concerned with what happens to the staff, cause it's utterly awful.

    Likewise man! Welcome back! How are you doing? And what are your thoughts on Skybound taking over development for The Walking Dead: The Final Season?

  • Words can't describe how happy I am right now.

    God bless, Kirkman!

  • Do you think the paper work is done for skybound to take over TFS production or are they still hashing the terms of the contract

  • When did they say they were meeting with ex-staff? Tuesday? For me, Tuesday is tomorrow (Alil over 2 hours from now). I believe at this point they just tried to reach out to as much of the original staff as possible for the supposed meeting tomorrow(? correct me if I'm wrong guys) We'll probably get an update this week.

    Now, that The Final Season is saved, can we move to waiting thread for Episode 3? It will be so rejuvenating to see it after those two horrible weeks :smile:

    Edit: ...or just rename this thread as waiting thread

  • I second this

    I know it’s probably still early and not all the details of Telltale’s and Skybound’s agreement have been finalized, but when do you guys think we can expect to see the choices at the end of Episode 2 come up. It’s such a tiny thing to focus on, but I just hate not knowing what the choices were and how many others did the same thing I did.

  • there was a thread that someone made strawpoll.me of the ep2 choiches and it could be kinda accurate

    I know it’s probably still early and not all the details of Telltale’s and Skybound’s agreement have been finalized, but when do y

  • That's what made telltale games great seeing what other players choices

  • I think when they're going to re-release TFS on digital stores.

  • Still surprised only about 22% of people let Abel leave with some food in Episode 1 tbh. I had little hesitation in doing so on my first play through, because I just couldn’t see Clem risking AJ’s life in that situation

  • and yes kirkman him self just announced they are gonna finish the game off so rejoice .

  • Fellas this is why when the AMA happens we all gotta show we still want Wolf 2

  • I attacked Abel because I thought that he shouldn’t be trusted. He could’ve shot AJ and Clem after they let their guard down to take all the food and I didn’t want to risk that.

  • Even in the event he'd wanted to there, he'd had to deal with Violet, Louis, and the herd outside as a result.

  • That was my reasoning when I made the choice. I didn’t think very much about it because I thought it wouldn’t be too important.

  • Clem may be popular on face value, but the actual sales of TWD beside Season 1 prove otherwise.

    Funny thing, I thought exactly the same. But I thought about continue the Clem story. Why? Because it is a damn money maker. Loo

  • Robert Kirkman has nothing to do with TWAU, guys

  • Yes but its in hopes that Skybound works to make a deal with Vertigo to collaborate to bring Wolf 2 back as well. (seeing as no other company will probs pick up wolf)

  • This. As much as i'd like to have a TWAUS2, Skybound will never do it. That's just the reality. The Wolf Among Us is a DC/Vertigo property, not a Skybound one. Why would Skybound put money into a game based on a comic that is not from them? Makes no sense at all.

  • Wait, so Bigby could be in the next Justice League cartoon?

  • S2 had some good sales to boot. If Kenny wasn’t in it, who knows.

    In all fairness, it's not really that the rest of the series sold badly, as much as they didn't sell enough to recoup the money it took to make. Telltale's been bleeding money ever since someone had the brilliant idea of hiring 300 people and somehow expecting their games to make enough money to keep them all paid, on top of all the other expenses they'd have to pay for alongside salaries. That amount of employees is pretty much a death sentence unless you have an extremely stable and steady source of income, IE Valve with Steam. Hell, I don't think even S1-level of sales would have been able to sustain that many people for more than a year or two. It's a miracle Telltale even made it as long as they did with the sheer amount of money they had to have been burning through.

    Clem may be popular on face value, but the actual sales of TWD beside Season 1 prove otherwise.

  • I think Vertigo is seperate from DC, but it's still owned by DC.

  • This is true. Most games before ANF would've been profitable, if the studio didn't expanded so much.

    If Telltale hadn't expanded this much and rather developed one high quality game at a time, which gave them the time to reinvent their formular and their technology bewteen games, they would be fine now. But upper management said no.

    After the success of TWD S1, Telltale should've invested in new technology suitable for the - at the time - next gerneration of consoles. The Walking Dead: The Final Season should've been their second game in terms of pure technology. That was the next step of a Telltale Game. But it took them 6 years instead to reach that point.

  • To whichever Twitter user asked Skybound that question in the DM's, maybe try asking Bill Willingham on Twitter if something could be arranged for Skybound to take over. From what I know, Willingham is somewhat open to answering fan questions on Twitter, plus he does seem interested in getting Wolf's story out there:
