Telltale talk 'deeper stories' and Star Wars05 Jan, 2013, 21:38 | Posted by: jp-30 | Source: Venture Beat
"Coming from LucasArts, we always felt we could do a great Star Wars story game," Telltale chief executive officer Dan Connors told Red Bull U.K. in an interview. "We also love the idea of building out a deeper story to a great game franchise — something like Half Life Stories or Halo Stories."
"[Dan Connors was] speaking more to our goal of wanting to take on a major gaming franchise someday. [We want] to build a narrative game series that supports another franchise - as we passionately believe [our game] would not compete with or cannibalize [Halo 4 or the next Half-Life.]"
Allison believes that a Telltale adventure game based on a major gaming or movie franchise would only boost player investment in the series. Especially since the developer’s games are so different from what most of these properties are best known for.
"Will we do this? Yes, we believe we will some time very soon..."
I'd love to see Telltale work with Disney on a Star Wars game, though that's in part because the relationship might bode well for future games using classic LucasArts IP. Or something based on The Muppets.
