Feature: The robots are not coming

We fed game characters into a ‘neural net’ and it told us who they were with an astonishing 15% accuracy

Those of you chained to the churning wheel of the internet might have seen this facial recognition algorithm thingo doing the rounds. It's called ImageNet Roulette, and it's basically a website where you feed in a photo of your human face and see what the cybergods of our terrible future make of you.

Feature: Sorry Violet

My favourite moment in The Walking Dead so far was a mistake I made

Zombie choose-o-drama The Walking Dead: The Final Season released its third episode this week, after a short delay as Telltale sadly closed its doors and Skybound took over development (thankfully with at least some of the former workers on board).I haven’t finished it yet, because who has time to finish video games nowadays, even episodic ones that are only a few hours long. But I…

The Walking Dead’s collectables are creepy but wonderful

I’m not usually one for in-game collectables, but Telltale’s The Walking Dead: The Final Season has me on board. For starters, assuming the first episode sets a reliable precedent, there are only six of them per episode, so it won’t take hours to track them all down. But more importantly, items that Clem and AJ can find and use to decorate their room are equal…

Telltale to retire their engine after The Walking Dead S4

Telltale have been very busy lately, in-between signing deals with Netflix and tussling with their former CEO. The studio that (gradually) popularised episodic games has a lot on their plate, and now they've got a pretty heavy dessert lined up for once they've finished the upcoming fourth and final Walking Dead game season.

Former Telltale CEO Sues Telltale Games

Might not be the most exciting story today, but this feels like a bit we need to cover. Last month, Telltale delayed The Wolf Among Us 2 until 2019 due to vague "we're making it better we promise" reasons. This comes at the end of a year or two of reports that life at Telltale is not going well, and that the internal operations have…

Overkill’s Walking Dead game gets four character trailers

With the final season of Telltale's The Walking Dead kicking off soon, there's no shortage of good interactive experiences from that fictional universe.

Meanwhile, serving as the Fear The Walking Dead to Telltale's series, there's the…
