Dan Connors kicked to the street, Telltale starts working on original IP 14 Jan, 2015 / 4 comments

And that is what one calls "link bait".

But! It's sorta true. Gamesutra tells us Connors is stepping down, and is being replaced by TTG co-founder, Kevin Bruner. There is also some talk about the company being kind of a… harsh… place to work these days, which doesn't come as a big surprise. The company has lost some high profile names lately. Grossman, Stemmle… The place just hasn't been the same since Jake left.

More interesting, perhaps, is that they will be "expending 'a lot of energy' working on original IP". That could be a good thing, right?

As for Connors, he will remain on board as an "executive advisor", which, if similar situations are anything to go by, pretty much means he'll be sitting at home, waiting for his non-compete clause to run out.

Good luck to all, from the ever positive Mojo!

    And in my mind and heart, that's all that matters.

    Telltale is over ten years old at this point, so it doesn't feel like this is anything to really draw conclusions about. Grossman's tenure there was longer than his stint LucasArts, I'm pretty sure.

    Ten years is a long time for anyone to be at the same place.

    Now that sounds like good news, I have been hoping for good orignal IP from Telltale ever since they started. They do have the strong smell of a licenced IP company.
