How about doing some 2D games Telltale?

This came from one of the discussions regarding on the look for the King's quest game. I did some heavy thinking about this one before bringing it into conversation on here. Now. I am aware that you guys have used Cel-shaded graphics for Strong bad's game and used the cel shading for Poker night.

But how about doing something fully 2D for video games? You know like a fully 2D animated video game. I am aware that you guys do 3D, but how about doing some with 2D animation? I'm talking about doing an adventure game with 2D animation. There are softwares to make things easier with 2D if money is an issue with this. But either way. It would be nice to see you guys produce some 2D animated adventure games. After all. There are video games out there that are done in 2D(Wario Land Shake it, A boy and his Blob to name a few).

  • Telltale has made every single one of it's games on a single engine that has become more and more easy to use as time has went on. Developing a new engine would take a huge amount of resources, whereas the Puzzle Agent 'half-2d' look works fine for the same purpose.
  • Um, I'm surprised that no-one's mentioned this but the Hector games ran on the TellTale engine (fully so in the case of episodes 2 and 3) and they were full-on 2D. As of this moment, the TellTale engine is fully capable of running 2D games. It's something I'd really like to see more of in the future; gorgeous hand-drawn backgrounds, with traditionally animated characters.

    I'd love to see another 2D Monkey Island game. I thought that Curse and LeChuck's Revenge: Special Edition were and still are beautiful games. They have a timeless quality because well produced 2D art will never age. Whereas, ToMI is going to look fairly dated ten years from now.

    Having said that, I'll settle for any further Guybrush adventures, whether they be in 2D or 3D.

    Still, I'm putting in my vote for some more 2D goodness for a future TellTale release. I guess it all depends upon the suitability of the licence they're working with.
  • Telltale could accept my game into its pilot program :P
  • The banner at the top of the screen in the 'How about doing some 2D games Telltale?' forum thread is an advertisement for a 2D game produced by Telltale. Just sayn'.
  • Hector wasn't produced by Telltale.

    ... yes it was. The PC version was produced by both Straandlooper and Telltale.

    If the forum filled up with Bronies I'd be on here a lot less.

    Not that I am the type of person who goes "YOU AREN'T ALLOWED TO LIKE THIS", but many Bronies just like to shove it in the face of people who aren't.

    You'd probably end up being one too. Admit it.

    As for 2D games, I would LOVE to see Telltale tackle a 2D Sam and Max.
