Telltale On ‘Weird’ Experiments, Revisiting Comedy

Yesterday, I put on my fuzzy-eared detective hat and grilled Telltale president Kevin Bruner about his company's next big, hopefully not bad thing, The Wolf Among Us. The Fables-based caper sounds like a worthy (though unexpected) follow-up to The Walking Dead, but it's hardly the only story being writ large by Telltale's ostentatiously oversized quill pens. The developer also regularly creates experimental prototypes involving AI,…

Telltale On New IPs, Beating JJ Abrams To The Punch

Telltale's pretty much synonymous with The Walking Dead these days, but it has plans. Big plans. Maybe it'll build a rocketship to Mars. Or perhaps it'll make the world's tallest ice cream sandwich. Also to Mars. Or I guess it could be making some more videogames, but that's kinda reaching a bit. Regardless, I asked Telltale CEO Dan Connors what lies beyond his studio's tear-blurred…

Phoenix Online Have More Than Silver Lining

More adventure gaming news now, following John's tearful account of the beautiful To The Moon. Sunday sees the release of the fourth episode of Pheonix Online's unofficial King's Quest game, The Silver Lining. As with the others, it's absolutely free but they are after money for something else. While working away on The Silver Lining, they've announced a new project, Cognition, in collaboration with Gabriel…

Not That Episode 3: More The Silver Lining

For a wonderful second I was convinced this was the fourth episode of the unofficial King's Quest fan-game The Silver Lining, and was all braced to use the headline "Four Ever Cloud." Imagine how clever and funny that would have been. Just. Imagine. Instead, you're stuck with whatever the heck I've written up there instead. I haven't even decided what it is yet, I'm just…

Wot I Think: The Silver Lining

After much to-and-fro, King's Quest tribute game The Silver Lining from Phoenix Online Studios has not only been granted a release by IP holders Activision, but the first episode is out now. A completely fan-made project, and completely free, it's been eight years in creation. I've finished the first chapter, so here's Wot I Think.

Space Quest & King’s Quest Join The Reunion

I'm stuck at this point. The problem is this: for years and years we had to suffer every mention of an adventure game being accompanied by a phrase somehow relating to adventure games being dead. I mean, I wrote them myself when I was young and stupid. They would go, "The adventure game may be dead, but here's one last gasp," or more optimistically, "The…
