BildungZroman: The Walking Dead Season Two Finale

Telltale's Walking Dead has always been Clementine's story. From the moment she appears in the first episode of the first season, the player may be controlling Lee but Clem is the character that they're guiding and constructing. I've mostly enjoyed the second season, even when the pacing has been a little too Romero-zombie, and I'm looking forward to the joyous showtune that will mark the…

The Walking Dead Season 2 Ep 3 review

Season two of the The Walking Dead has started strong, taking on the task of switching to a new player character confidently. Clementine is a complex character, capable of carrying the narrative while also reacting to the player's input in a believable fashion. With the third episode, the story enters a new phase, one that shifts the setting and tone somewhat, and places the focus…

Game Dev Super Group Finally Announces Game

Campo Santo is a new studio made up of top tier talent from - DEEP BREATH - Double Fine, Klei, Telltale, and 2K Marin. OK, that didn't require much air to say out loud at all and I can type without breathing for probably, like, hours, but you get the idea. With the powers of Mark of the Ninja lead Nels Anderson, Walking Dead: Season One…

The Walking Dead Season 2 Ep 2 review

It’s good to see Clementine again, even if I’m not particularly keen on the new company she's keeping. I’ve just finished playing the first two episodes of The Walking Dead season two and I’m feeling a mixture of grief, frustration and relief. The latter is due to the strength of the second episode in particular. After a wobbly first episode, the transition to Clementine’s time…

Walking Dead Season 2 Ep 2 Shambling Free Next Week

TOO MANY TWOS IN THAT HEADLINE. 2 Episode 2 Furious. Live Free (Walking) Die Epi2odic. I don't know anymore. I'm having a strange day. But anyway, The Walking Dead Season Two Episode Two has been trailerfied, and it's looking as brooding and dramatic as ever. I see potential for plot twists, revelations, and the very real possibility that the walkingest dead of all... is man.…

The Walking Dead Season Two Ep 1 review

It's finally time. The Walking Dead season one had its share of ups and downs, but its tale of broken hearts and busted skulls turned eyeballs into waterfalls and put Telltale on the map. Can season two live up to the incredibly high expectations surrounding it? Could lessons learned on the first season and new "shows" like The Wolf Among Us allow it to surpass…

Clem Vs The World: Walking Dead Season Two’s Full Trailer

When last we left The Walking Dead's Clementine, things were, er, not going well. And now, as they so often do in Telltale's heart-wrenching game of choice and zombie brain-(the other kind of)-wrenching, they've gone from bad to worse. And then worse to worst, and then worst to worst-er-erest-er-blarghcry. Give your cringing muscles a warm up by watching the full Walking Dead season two episode…

Story Time: Telltale Confirms Game Of Thrones, Borderlands

Yes, "the" Borderlands. The relentlessly silly blast-fest from Gearbox, as opposed to, um, that other Borderlands. Telltale might not seem like the most natural fit for a spinoff of the action-heavy RPG (which is less conversational and more often gunversational), but it's happening, per Spike's abysmally awkward VGX "award" show over the weekend. Also fired from the dudebro-centric network's Big Fucking Announcement Gun: a Telltale Game…

Wolf Among Us Ep 2 Won’t Be Among Us Until 2014

YOU GUYS, YOU GUYS, you're not going to believe this: there are already wolves among us. Right now. They're called "dogs," and we bred them into blind subservience over the course of a few generations. Many of them, however, are capable of reducing humans to blubbering piles of incoherent baby babble with a simple wag of the tail or awkward pawing attempt at a handshake. Who,…

The Walking Dead, And The Walking Alive: The Narrow Path

Were you aware that there had been a The Walking Dead All Out Game Jam? 120 teams were, competing in the official event over two weeks, back in September/October. Ten finalists have recently been picked, with the winner chosen by TWD creator Robert Kirkman on the 5th December. Those finalists have gained some decent loot, not least a full Unity Pro license, and a free…

Lord Of The Rumors: Telltale’s Game Of Thrones Game

Well, this all seems sort of inevitable in hindsight, doesn't it? Telltale has more or less perfected its episodic storytelling formula, and bounteous riches are beginning to flow. And from among those glittering prizes and sparkling gem clusters, the Walking Dead and Wolf Among Us dev has - if a report from IGN is to be believed - plucked a veritable holy grail. It now…

All Alone: Telltale Reveals Walking Dead Season Two

Here it is, the moment you've been waiting for. Ever since [SAD THING] and [OTHER SAD THING] and [MORE VERY, VERY SAD THINGS] closed out The Walking Dead's first season, everyone's been reinforcing their ramshackle post-apocalyptic emotion shelters - bolting on more kleenex boxes and widening gaps so they can claim it's "just the rain" - in preparation for a second go-'round. And so, finally,…

Shambling Man: The Walking Dead Season Two

Comic-Con has probably created lots of news but, until this morning, the only information that had lodged in my brain was the announcement of some sort of Superman vs Batman film. I haven't seen Man of Steel because my brain tries to run away from Zack Snyder films, leaving it shuddering and heaving against the back of my skull if one of those films happens…

Telling Tales: Molyneux Vs Vanaman

Game Informer have done a lovely thing and put Sean Vanaman (the creative lead and author of Telltale's The Walking Dead games) in the same room as famed promiser-of-worlds, 22Cans' Peter Molyneux. The consequence of this gentlemanly meet was an extended discussion of how Telltale have tried to up stakes on the adventure genre, writing for games in general, and some stuff about zombies: a…

400 Days Of Glummer: Walking Dead Season 1 DLC

The last time we saw The Walking Dead it was lying in a pool of blood, waiting to rise again as some sort of brain-hungry second season. The bastard game hadn't so much jerked the tears from my eyes as attached wild horses to the ducts and had the muscular beasts run toward the horizon for a couple of hours. It's still not clear precisely…

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 Wolf Among Us, Following The Walking Dead

To hear Telltale tell the tale, The Walking Dead wasn't built to be a wildly acclaimed game of the year award magnet. A good game? Yes. A great story? Clearly. But not a bowling ball catapult into zombified super stardom. With all eyes suddenly on the once-unassuming developer, "that Fables game" has an incredibly tough act to follow. But The Wolf Among Us is a)…

Wolface – Fables: The Wolf Among Us Is Telltale’s Next

I wonder if Telltale are worrying about Difficult Second Album Syndrome, despite Fables: The Wolf Among Us actually being about their dozenth adventure game series. The rapture their Walking Dead series was met with puts them, if not actually on the A-list then at least on the waiting list for the A-list. By which I mean they're on the list of developers who I'd say…
