Save the Galaxy or Save Your Loved Ones? Designing a Devastating Choice

posted by Scott Butterworth September 13th 2017

The Eternity Forge: a mysterious relic with the power to bring the dead back to life. In episode one of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, we saw the Forge revive the recently impaled Star-Lord; in episode three, we learn more about Hala’s plans to resurrect an army at the expense of millions of innocent people. This leaves Star-Lord -- and you -- with an incredibly difficult choice: destroy to the Forge to stop Hala once and for all or keep it in hopes of one day reviving lost family and friends.

In this video, the team behind the game dives into the anatomy of the Guardians’ biggest, most consequential choice to date, and discusses the stakes, circumstances, and potential fallout surrounding the decision. Watch the video for some immediate behind-the-scenes insights, and follow Telltale on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to catch more content like this in the future.
