Former Telltale Developers Form Ad Hoc Studio 08 Feb, 2019 / 4 comments

According to Variety, Ad Hoc studio has been founded by four former Telltale designers to continue the narrative game legacy into the future.

The four founders are Michael Choung, Dennis Lenart, Nick Herman, and Pierre Shorette. That's some heavy hitters right there. Hopefully, this batch of creative awesomeness leads to some excellent titles in the future. They're interested in developing live-action interactive narratives, which could be interesting.

Or maybe they'll be like Telltale and hone their craft on Sam and Max. One can only hope.

    The live action part makes it sound like that interactive Black Mirror episode that came out recently (which already seemed to share some DNA with Telltale's Netflix plans). Netflix said they wanted to continue the interactive story stuff beyond Black Mirror, so if any of these guys were involved with whatever Telltale and Netflix were up to, it wouldn't surprise me if Ad Hoc is going to continue in that direction.



    I probably should have read the article before posting, since that's exactly what they're talking about.

    Well, good luck to them. Of the four, I only recognise Dennis Lenart.

    "“I think the [genre’s] reputation is largely deserved,” says Choung says"

    Love you, Variety.
