Tycho's future with Telltale

posted by OttersPod on - last edited - Viewed by 1.2K users
Since Tycho appears in this, with a character model and everything, does this mean that he might show up in other Telltale games? Or is this just a one-shot deal?

And, if he does end up in another Telltale title, will we be seeing other PA characters, like Gabe, Charles, Annarchy, etc.?

    As a game developer myself, I have to disagree at least somewhat. Any game looks good on a resume if it's a good game. There was probably some other reason.
    Maybe the fact that they are a fair bit more well known to Telltale fans then Strong Bad is?
  • I'm guessing it has more to do with the Strong Bad series not containing many remotely-serious-looking action or dramatic moments.

    Agreed. Even if they decided to finish RSPD, they'd have to re-do Tycho's model almost completely (It's not bad, but it looks more like good fanart than Krahulik-style Tycho), and, since it's a company that seems to lean more toward 3D than 2D gaming (but I could be wrong; Poker Night is my first foray into Telltale's games), it probably wouldn't have the pretty cutscenes that the first two episodes had, which would lead to the inevitable whining and complaining from the fans...who whine and complain no matter what happens, really.

    But about Telltale going for more of a serious approach, Penny Arcade does have the potential to be pretty serious and BA when it comes to story-telling. I mean, there's the Cardboard Tube Samurai, and even some of the Precipice chapters get pretty intense.
    Even though it's not connected to any of the main Penny Arcade characters, "Automata" is just brilliant.

    And yeah, Telltale's only done 3D games, although Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People had cel-shaded graphics to make it look as much like a Homestar Runner cartoon as possible.

    I bet 10 dollars he appears in murder at the inventory.
    Wrong he will be in the TTG-hidden object game "They're propably hiding a cow at the inventory"

    Mr. Featherly deserves his own game.

    Right. He would be a great main character for this game.
  • Finding the giant, comically-obvious cow in a small room would be a logical next step for Telltale's current trajectory of puzzle design.
