Telltale I want to help you with Season 2. *Must Read*

I have read alot of posts and topics on here, which seem to REPEAT themselves over and over.
What I cannot figure out is two major things that need to change, to make this game more EPIC then what it is at the moment.

1. Make the episodes longer. Please dont make us wait months, to only get 2 hours in. would love to be able to get more than an two hours out of a game that i waited months in between for it to be released. If worse comes to worse, release two episodes at a time.

2. Give this game more of a open world feel to it. Nothing is worth then walking around and only being able to do what the game allows you to do or buttons to press. The gamer, wants to be in control, hence why you allow us to pick what we want to say. Want to see an example of a game that was ruined due to lack of open world? Play L.A Noire. Solid storyline and graphics, but game was dry, amd only allowed the gamer to press a button when it promopted you. It was boring, and didn't deliever on the gameplay. You have a game that needs to deliever in season 2 with this major issue. Why cant we pick up or own weapons, or create our own weapons? Why cant I enter the house in episode 2 and really see what I expected from the begining? Rather you stop users from doing their exploring, and force the gamer to do what you want them to do.

Thats all I wanted to add. Would love to know if anyone agrees or disagrees and why?

Dont get me wrong though, I love this game. Just think these things could just make this the complete game. Would love to play this game longer, and more than once.

    ...this is a must read? You complain about how topics seem to repeat themselves over and over, and then repeat a concern that's been voiced in the past.

    Where? What forums you on?

    Longer episodes and open world are not new ideas on here by any means.

    That doesn't mean I don't agree though. They could make bigger environments with more things, even inconsequential, to do. As for episode length... I think they hit the sweet spot on most of them, episode 5 was kind of short but it's quality and narrative was perfect to me.

    If they decided to ditch the decision making aspect (hahaha, ew) then maybe longer episodes could work in S2. It's not something I would want.
  • An open world TWD would be a bit silly. However, more freedom would be nice. Like certain areas where you look for survival tools, allowing you to walk freely in a certain area.
  • An open world would destroy the storytelling.
    Hopefully, there will be more sneaking puzzles in Season 2.
  • I think the only question that is relevant at this time is will it be a new story or will it continue Clems story? Im kinda torn....part of me wants them to leave the Clem story alone cause its so perfect but the other part of me wants fan service.
  • You're asking for longer episodes and shorter waiting periods? Really?! TT already have little time to make high quality episodes. Wouldn't you much rather wait a few extra months and have a amazing game than risk making sub-par episodes that don't like up to TT's potential?

    And while I would like a little more freedom, having a open world seems unrealistic.
  • If it were open world it would require a lot of work to make it important to constantly find new food fuel and it couldn't get away with the classic point and click travelling round the world and no time passing.
    Walking dead feels good linear as that is how a zombie outbreak is you cannot go anywhere as if you do you will starve, be bitten or run out of or waste fuel.

    All zombie story based games have to be linear to keep the tone and feeling
