Telltale Autumn Sale

The 'stuff Telltale said they'd do' list

edited August 2012 in General Chat
There are a number of things over the years that Telltale have said they would do but for whatever reasons haven't gotten around to yet, so I thought it would be good to compile a list for easy reference. Hopefully, with mutterings and grumpiness, we can finally start seeing some of these things get done.

Things Telltale said they would do and haven't:
Release Sam & Max season 1 and Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures on Mac. [LINK]
Update the Tales of Monkey Island: Launch of the Screaming Narwhal download to the version with Earl Boen as LeChuck. [LINK]
Upgrade the forums.

Edit, stuff added:
Upgrade PC version of The Devil's Playhouse to include NutriSpecs. [LINK]
Release Puzzle Agent on WiiWare. [LINK]
Release Hector and Puzzle Agent 2 on PSN. [LINK1] [LINK2]
Release remaining The Devil's Playhouse episodes on iPad. [LINK]
Create official walkthroughs for Episodes 2-5 of The Devil's Playhouse.

Things Telltale haven't said they would do but should:
Fix Hector episode one subtitles.
Fix Jurassic Park frame rate issues.
Release Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse soundtrack (in physical or digital format).

Edit, stuff added:
Move support for their Playstation games.
Make SBCG4AP for iOS.
Release remaining Wallace and Gromit episodes on iPad.

Now, this thread is more about tying up current loose-ends than hoping for stuff in the future so I'm not going to put down, for example, Strong Bad season 2 or any other game season 2 under 'Things Telltale haven't said they would do but should'. There are other threads for those sorts of requests. I'm also going to refrain from adding snide remarks like 'add gameplay to BttF', because this isn't the place for that.

Now, the current list is just comprised of things off the top of my head, I'm sure there are more and I'll update the list as we go. For the 'Things Telltale said they would do and haven't' section it would be nice to have a link to where Telltale actually said they would do the thing in question. (I can't find a quote where they said they were going to upgrade the forums, but I know it's around.)

    They didn't put in on the forum cos you know how jealous some people get.

    They did switch the forum over.

    ...Dammit put the Season 3 soundtrack out.

    Wait, I'm confused. Don't we already have a general bitching thread?

    And we are currently in that forum. So where is the problem. *bitch* *moan*

    They probably should be getting around to releasing SBCG4AP, I mean its still coming soon.

    As for serious things, Telltale said they would release Puzzle Agent 1 on WiiWare and never did.

    SOUNDTRACK for Sam and Max Season 3 would be GREATLY APPRECIATED
  • edited July 2012
    I've said it before (a long time ago) and I'll say it again - Move support for their Playstation games.

    Earl Boen voice in Episode 1.

    Right now, you lazy bums!
    (please)

    The other guy sounds too much like Screech.

    Puzzle Agent on WiiWare
    Hector and Puzzle Agent 2 on PSN
    Remaining Devil's Playhouse and Wallace and Gromit episodes on iPad
    Nutri-Specs on PC
    Official walkthroughs for Episodes 2-5 of The Devil's Playhouse

    Oh, and this last one only half-counts because it was never officially announced, but SBCG4AP on iOS. Poker Night's sound files contained Strong Bad repeating lines from SBCG4AP's tutorial with PS3/iOS controls. Sure enough, a PS3 port happened, but it seems the plans to put it on iOS fizzled out.

    Cheers, thanks everyone. I knew there was a bunch of stuff I couldn't think of.

    This reminds me, did Telltale ever finish releasing all the Wallace and Gromit episodes on 360? I remember they released one or two episodes and then just stopped.

    Edit: Never mind, looks like they are all out on 360.

    Puzzle Agent on the Wiiware never happened(wasn't the reason with something with the space amount on the Wii?).

    Releasing the soundtracks to their other games. I know they released one for Bone, but how about a soundtrack release for walking dead and Puzzle agent(and its sequel).

    I wasn't going to go nuts asking for soundtracks. TDP feels like unfinished business though, what with the music in Sam & Max being so good and the fact that season's 1 and 2 had (much loved) soundtracks.

    Did they? Well I missed that. The only difference I see is that spoiler tags are now black instead of white. I guess I was expecting something more... dramatic.

    Wrong. This is still the same cobbled-together forum it's always been. I don't know what that scheduled downtime we had a few months ago was for, but the new site hasn't been rolled out yet.

    Update the Tales of Monkey Island: Launch of the Screaming Narwhal download to the version with Earl Boen as LeChuck.

    TellTale, please keep not doing that. I don't think it would be fair to lose Adam Harrington's version.

    Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse soundtrack is a MUST, though.

    That's what I thought. I mean weren't they saying that early this year they were going to do a complete site overhaul?

    Edit: I can't find any link where Telltale says they plan to release all of Wallace & Gromit on iPad, only that they will release The Last Resort, which they have, so I've moved that into the 'Things Telltale haven't said they would do but should' list.

    Things Telltale haven't said they'll do but should:
    Make Tom a mod.

    Golly, this is a positive thread, innit? Surprised no one's complained they've yet to release a functional game of Jurassic Park.
  • edited July 2012
    Maybe because we know that'd be physically impossible without throwing it all away and starting from scratch.

    We don't want them to redo the whole thing.
  • edited July 2012
    They haven't directly promised it, but they were clearly working on it: Android ports.
  • edited July 2012
    Adding another one. Finish putting all the Sam & Max season 3 episodes on ipad. I don't got an ipad or iphone but i'm sure other people who do would like to finish playing the season.

    The last word I remember hearing on that was that Android devices are too varied for Telltale to be looking into it right now. I'd find the forum post, but I can't remember who said it or where. I know it was more recent than that article, though.
  • edited July 2012
    Probably in the ask dan thread. I remember that too.

    Edit: Nope, guess I was wrong. Someone from TTG said it somewhere though.

    You mean this post?

    We currently have no plans to do releases on Android. The main reason has to do with hardware. iOS devices all have a similar profile: there's an easily identifiable minimum amount of memory, CPU and GPU power that we can target from an engine standpoint.

    Now think about Android. How many different Android devices from how many different manufacturers are available? In the hundreds. And for the most part, they are all extremely disparate in their hardware specifications. Between this device fragmentation and the fact that most Android devices on the market are not all that great for gaming, we'd rather focus on making our engine better on the platforms we already do support.

    All that being said, I'm a programmer and so I'm not up to speed on what our sales and marketing plans are for the future, so it's entirely possible that at some point we'll start putting our games on Android. But in the meantime I'm afraid it's not in the cards.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. :/
    It was indeed posted in April of this year, over a year after the article on androidpimps.com.

    Yep, that's the one I was thinking of. Feels like it was longer ago than four months, but then I guess I've had an incredibly long and trying four months.

    Oh hey, I just remembered something.

    A Scribblenauts-style program where you can write out fairy tales and it will show them happening.

    We haven't heard anything about that since.

    Speaking of which, I never got my prize for winning the bttf contest. I mean even second and third got their prizes.

    I just had a thought, has anyone got the GoG version of Tales of Monkey Island? If so, I am curious as to which version of Launch of the Screaming Narwhal is on it, the Earl Boen or the Adam Harrington one?

    According to this thread on the GOG.com forums, it's the Adam Harrington version.
