Y’arr, Tales Of Monkey Island has returned to Steam and GOG

After a few years back in dry-dock, Tales Of Monkey Island has returned to the open sea. Following Telltale Games' infamous scuttling back in 2018, many of the story-driven studio's works were taken off sale - going down with the ship, if you'll pardon. Slowly, tales of shamblers and caped crusaders have resurfaced, and now Guybrush Threepwood's 3D follow-up has found its way back onto…

Batman Telltale: Shadows Edition brings back Batman and friends in black and white

What’s black and white and red all over? My attempt to get that old joke past Graham's editing pen. What prompted my amazing new take on that joke is the return of Batman - The Telltale Series. New owners LCG Entertainment are releasing it as Batman Telltale: Shadows Edition. LCG bought up as much of Telltale's back catalogue as they could after the adventure developer…

Here’s all the news and trailers from the Game Awards

Like a heavily-sponsored Santa Claus, the Game Awards swept in last night and left us a pile of presents to unwrap. If you did the smart thing and slept through the event, you'll have missed a bunch of new announcements. Alice O and Graham did some amazing work in writing up as much as they could as it happened, but a few sly games snuck…

Telltale’s The Wolf Among Us is free on Epic for the next week

If you've not played The Wolf Among Us and so don't quite get why folks are excited about last night's news that the sequel is back in development, good news: you can now get the original for free. It's the latest freebie offered by the Epic Games Store to overcome animosity, and it's a good'un. We declared Telltale's episodic urban fairytale detective story the best…

The Wolf Among Us 2 is back on

Oh, happy days! The Wolf Among Us 2 has survived the death of Telltale Games and is reborn with the studio's kinda-sorta-not-really rebirth. The company wearing the skin of Telltale announced at The Game Awards tonight that yes, they will indeed resume the splendid moody detective story set in Bill Willingham's comic book world of Fables. I don't know about the new Telltale but we…

Telltale Games rise again, kinda

Eleven months after Telltale Games laid off employees and shut down, the company are back. Kinda. Ish. Not really. Holding company LCG Entertainment today announced that they've bought a chunk of Telltale's intellectual properties, assets, trademarks, and technology. Wrapping themselves in the flayed hide of Telltale Games and using their name, LCG Entertainment plan to not only return old Telltale games to sale but make…

Minecraft: Story Mode downloads might vanish on June 25th

Adding one final indignity to the catastrophic fall of Telltale Games, it appears that their kid-friendly (and admittedly rather naff) Minecraft: Story Mode adventure series may be more than just delisted from stores soon. A blog post on the official Minecraft site warns that even players that own Minecraft: Story Mode, seasons one or two, may not be available to download it after June 25th.…

The sad saga of Telltale's fall is due one last tragic chapter.

Telltale’s closing squashed not one, but two Stranger Things games

It's no secret that Telltale were working with Netflix on a Stranger Things game when the studio suddenly closed in September, leaving 250 people out of work with no severance pay. However, a recent exposé by The Verge revealed a Stranger Things tie-in mobile game also went up in smoke with the closure as well, this one by Oxenfree creators Night School Studio.

Feature: Two-faced

Have You Played… Batman – The Telltale Series?

Batman - The Telltale Series should probably have been called Bruce Wayne - The Telltale Series given how little screen time the Dark Knight actually gets in the first season of this ill-fated episodic adventure game, but I'd argue that it made for a more meaningful take on some of his relationships with the wider Batman cast - and specifically a person who's obviously very…

The Walking Dead: The Final Season finally finishes today

Having survived the death of Telltale Games and risen from the grave, The Walking Dead: The Final Season today launched its fourth and final episode. This is the end, the end of Clementine's story, the proper end of Telltale's tales, the end of it all. I'm sure she'll be fine. Here, have a peek at the trailer.

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…

Life in a post-zombaplocalyptic world has never been easy for Clem, and judging from the new trailer for The Walking Dead: The Final Season's next episode - Broken Toys - she's preparing for war. Produced under new studio Skybound Games (thankfully using former Telltale talent), the third of four episodes will be available to all existing season owners on January 15th on all stores. Those…

Telltale's The Walking Dead, Monkey Island, Jurassic Park, and Back To The Future games have have been pulled from sale on Steam, though folks who already own any can keep playing them and other stores do still sell 'em - for now.

Telltale’s The Walking Dead: The Final Season to be completed by Skybound Games

Following the abrupt layoffs of hundreds of Telltale employees two weeks ago, the company has reached a deal with Skybound Entertainment that will allow The Walking Dead: The Final Season to be completed. Skybound’s founder, Robert Kirkman, is also the original creator of The Walking Dead comics, so it seems a natural enough fit, but questions remain about what this will mean for the original…
