I am still on shock. I love Telltale and I have bought all their games because it is the only company devoted to graphic adventures. Now I read these news about a Back to the Future and (gulp!) Jurassic Park games... Why oh why? Telltale has sold to the enemy and now they are going to make action or, even worse... "action adventures".
Does the world need more "action adventures"? No sir. Does the world need more Hollywood-licensed games? Noooo sir. Does the world need more "interactive cinematic movies". Oh, noooo....

Less time, less money and less resources to make good graphic adventures...
Telltale has sold to Hollywood. Now I am depressed... I am going to drink a full bottle of whisky right now... :(

  • i'm sure this has been said somewhere but i couldn't be bothered to read the whole thread. its the same thing that happened when lucasarts announced the release of an indiana jones adventure game. people wee saying it wouldn't work. but it was fantastic. a partnership between telltale and universal is incredible news why are people critisizing them for expanding? things can only get better and telltale doesnt seem like the company to sell out.

    I think this might even be a little revolutionary. why not make movies into games there are 1000 of movies that could make excellent games. if telltale had announced it was doing another indiana jones wouldn't everyone just go nuts? Sure! but because this is new and never done before (as an adventure game) you don't know what to expect! Ask yourselves this and see how you feel again :

    Can you please remove images when you quote them? We don't need to see them twice on the same page. :(

    Sorry, I just couldn't resist.
  • What's the problem with the cutouts? And the map for that matter?
  • Cutouts = ugly and useless. Map = failure in design.

    Other than being a hideous eyesore that makes the game look like a cheap toy in a cereal box and utterly ruining what was supposed to be a special limited edition slipcover? Nothing.

    The art on the site led us to believe we would be receiving a quality cloth map, not a silk-screened handkerchief.

  • Can't you just trim off the white edge?
  • I think it would be more effective to just frame the map, having the matte cover most of the white edge. Seriously, I joked about them being napkins, but they don't look like they're actually that bad. Once you have the thing framed up you probably wouldn't even notice.

    As for the slipcover, is that over the DVD cover, or is Purcell's artwork on the other side?
