A former Telltale employee files a class-action suit against the studio

Today brings one more twist to the story of Telltale's tragic end. As reported by Polygon, the company has been hit by a class-action lawsuit filed by a former employee over a possible breach of local law. The prolific adventure studio laid off almost its entire staff last week (minus a skeleton crew who will stay on for a little while longer) with no warning…

Telltale Games confirm huge layoffs and “majority studio closure”

Following yesterday's initial reports that Telltale Games were effectively shutting down, the studio behind licensed story 'em ups including The Walking Dead and Batman: The Enemy Within have confirmed the bad news. All but 25 Telltale employees have been let go (that's 250-ish people gone, former members report), cut down to a skeleton crew to "fulfil the company's obligations to its board and partners." The…

Telltale Games reportedly almost shut down with hundreds of jobs lost

Update: Telltale have officially confirmed the bad news that they've closed most the studio and only 25 employees remain. As reported by Gamasutra, it seems that prolific choose-your-own-adventure studio Telltale Games is shutting down. This is backed up by media posts from developers at and close to the studio, such as Outerloop's Chandana Ekanayake. The Verge report that a skeleton crew of around 25 will remain…

The Wolf Among Us 2 will not be among us until 2019

Like a lot of Telltale stuff, I got really excited for The Wolf Among Us because I adored Bill Willingham's Vertigo comic book series. I played the first episode of season one and was like "Hell yeah, check out that hot wolfdadbod. Rawr!" And then I failed to see it through for way too long. Never fear, dear reader, for I finally finished season one…

Episodic storytellers Telltale Games have announced a trio of new seasons for some old games. More Batman, more The Walking Dead, and more The Wolf Among Us are in the pipeline.

Don’t expect more of Telltale’s Wolfamongus or Borderlands any time soon

Update: Well ho ho ho don't I look a fool. Telltale have since announced a new season of Wolfamongus, along with more Batman and The Walking Dead. But no mention of new Borderlands, sadly. If you've been hoping to hear more from Telltale Games about new seasons of The Wolf Among Us and Tales from the Borderlands, don't hold your breath unless you're willing to…

Have You Played…The Wolf Among Us?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. The Wolf Among Us [official site] remains one of the only games my wife and I have bonded over. She just doesn't really care for them, but that doesn't stop me for always keeping an eye out for something that she might be…

The RPS Bargain Bucket: Cubic Curiosity

Nothing says “weekend” like an afternoon spent watching a Malcolm in the Middle rerun marathon. It’s genuinely better than I remembered, but that may hold true for anything that has been viewed in order. Between you and me, though, the sitcom is best viewed as a preview to Breaking Bad. So many gas masks. So much angst. So many narrative possibilities. Anyway, pickings remain slim…

The Bestest Best Adventure Of 2014: The Wolf Among Us

Adventure games have been experiencing a resurgence this past year, but our favourite was by a developer that's hit a creative peak of their own after grinding away at the genre persistently for years. It's The Wolf Among Us. Adam: Wolf-a-Mongoose, as my computer just autocorrected, pips a couple of other contenders to the post in this category thanks to its new-noir style. If the…

Wot I Think – The Wolf Among Us Episode 5: Cry Wolf

Well, how to do this without spoilers? "In the final episode of the first season of Telltale's adaptation of/prequel to comic series Fables, the current storyline is concluded semi-satisfactorily and there are more quick-time events than usual." There you go, we're done here. Fine. FINE. You want more? Fine.

Wolf Apart From Us: Wolf Among Us S1 Ends Next Week

"I should really catch up on The Wolf Among Us," I tell myself roughly once a week. "I really like that fairly tale noir world, but I'm way behind on episodes." Now, though, I'm wondering if I shouldn't just wait until next week, sprinkle some bacon bits atop a heaping bowl of popcorn, and binge play the whole season. The Wolf Among Us Episode Five:…

The Wolf Among Us Part 4 – In Sheep’s Clothing review

The fourth part of Telltale's inadvertently long-running adaptation of fairy-tales-in-modern-New-York comic Fables was released yesterday. As, like its predecessors, it can only be bought as part of a season pack, part of me questions the wisdom of writing it up individually, but hey, I've started so I'll finish. I do avoid largely spoilers below, but it's going to be pretty nonsensical if you've not played…

Aroooo! The Wolf Among Us Admires Meat Next Week

In a fit of wistfulness, I've stopped seeing episodic things through to the end. Life rolls on seemingly endlessly until it stops abruptly, incomplete, messy, with few plots wrapped up. I've seen most of Twin Peaks five times but can't face having no new mysteries, no more surprises, no further Albert Rosenfield revelations. No matter how messy I've heard the end is (very, they say),…

The Wolf Among Us Ep3 review

The third chapter of Telltale's adventure game adaptation of the 'what if fairy tales were real and lived in New York?' comic Fables was released on Tuesday. I played it on Wednesday. I then published an article about it on Thursday. I might play it again on Friday. Here's why. Ah, that's much better. After such a strong start - for me, the most compelling…

The Wolf Among Us Episode 2: Smoke & Mirrors review

Arriving some four months after October's first installment of Telltale's adventurish adaptation of fairy tales in the real world comic Fables, Smoke & Mirrors sees protagonist Bigby Wolf continue to investigate a series of murders. Given the cliffhanger ending of episode 2, you'll forgive me if I'm plot-light in the below. I.e. no spoilers, but it does presume you're fairly familiar with the game already.

Wolf It Down: Wolf Among Us Ep 2 Hits First Week Of Feb

The internet was ready to huff-and-puff and blow Telltale's house down to find information on the next episode of their fable-inspired, Fables-derived adventure The Wolf Among Us. When a Reddit user created a popular thread to complain about the lack of information though, co-founder Kevin Bruner piped up with a rough release date. The second episode will hit during the first week of February.

The RPS Verdict: The Wolf Among Us

Two Smiths and one Meer gather to discuss the latest episodic adventure game from Telltale (they of the recent Walking Dead series). The Wolf Among Us is based on the comic series Fables, and concerns folk from fairytales carving out a noirish life in the big city. It also concerns MURDER MOST HORRID. You should perhaps read Adam's thoughts yesterday for a more fulsome summary,…

The Wolf Among Us Episode One review

How do you follow The Walking Dead? At a slow pace and a safe distance, preferably while soaked in corpse juices and with intestines draped around your neck. Or, in Telltale’s case, the sensible option is to provide more of the same. The Wolf Among Us, adapted from DC Vertigo’s on-going Fables series, is another comic adaptation and, as with The Walking Dead, its creators…

The Wolf Among Is Us From Tomorrow, Launches Trailer

Telltale have put themselves in a difficult spot. After years of their mediocre adventures getting rather overly generous reviews (and their excellent Strong Bad series earning them), last year they produced a genuine hit. The Walking Dead saw the developer finally stop being a LucasArts tribute act, and develop their own distinct identity. Now they've got to follow it. DC's Fables-inspired The Wolf Among Us…
