Telltale Games Reveal Even More New Titles In Development
Following on from their major announcement last week regarding new franchises they will be working on in the not-so-distant future, Telltale Games have unveiled another wave of titles that they are planning to produce games of. Whilst their previous reveal involved gaming adaptations of popular Film and Comic Book properties, this new list of games is varied, including a re-imagining of a classic gaming series, a conversion of a hit iPhone Adventure and a sequel to one of Telltale’s own original properties.
First up, the team will be producing a sequel for their Professor Layton-style Puzzle Adventure game – Nelson Tethers: Puzzle Agent. The original was released on iOS platforms and PC, and saw FBI Department of Puzzle Research agent, the aforementioned Tethers, travel to the snow-bound American Midwest to investigate a puzzling disappearance. Filled with riddles and brain-twisters, the title was very much in the vein of the games starring the popular Professor on the Nintendo DS. The sequel will arrive this summer on PC, PlayStation 3 and iOS devices.
Secondly, Telltale are working with independent developer Straandlooper, in order to adapt their iPhone adventure series – Hector: Badge of Carnage – to the PC, Mac and iPad. The popular series will launch on the new platforms in Spring with Episode one, and two more episodes will arrive later in the year.
And finally, somehow Activision have been persuaded to allow Telltale to work on an episodic re-imagining of the Classic Sierra Adventure Game series King’s Quest. Created by Sierra Co-Founder Roberta Williams in 1984, the series was a landmark in the genre. The head of Telltale marketing, Steve Allison announced that the project would be “multi-title” and “multi-platform” and went on to say that; “much like we did with Tales of Monkey Island, we’re rebooting King’s Quest with all new episodic games and multiple series.”
So, Telltale Games continue to champion Adventure Gaming on multiple platforms, and once again breathe life into a long-dead IP. Can’t wait to see a new King’s Quest game? Discuss it in our forums.
More details of the King’s Quest re-boot will be unveiled at E3 in June. For more information on all of the games mentioned in this article as soon as it is announced, stay tuned to Godisageek.com.
