How did The Walking Dead get finished? 09 Apr, 2019 / 3 comments

Telltale imploded a little under seven months ago. Despite the odds, however, some ex-staff was taken on-board with Skybound Games (which consisted of a whopping five members at the time) to release The Walking Dead: The Final Season unto the world.

So how did they do it? Well, Gamespot released an interesting article on that during our (latest but not last) downtime. Good read. Has that annoying thing with auto-playing videos plus ads.

Skybound CEO Ian Howe had an interesting tidbit: "I will give huge credit to the management of Telltale who went out of their way and did everything they could to make this deal happen as quickly as it could. For exactly that reason to help those people out, so that I don't think that should get lost in this."

It's implied that it's Dan Connors and Pete Hawley he's referring to. Or maybe I'm wrong. Either way, give it a go.

    Ron sold Humongous, and then left in 2001, so I don't think so.

    Call me Squinky

    Hopefully games that were downloaded from the site (non-Steam) will still work - it seems they took out the need for logins at some point for newer versions, so they probably will. In any case I'm glad they got the chance to finish TWD and keep some people employed for a while.

    BTW there's a Humble Indie Bundle for Humongous Games right now: https://www.humblebundle.com/games/humongous-entertainment-bundle

    I wonder if any of the proceeds go to Ron or not.

    Meanwhile, I can't log to my TT account anymore.
    It's ending for real.
