Telltale, Walking Dead shall bid adieu in a few days 21 Mar, 2019 / 4 comments

This is a bittersweet piece of news:

The final ever Telltale anything will be releasing on Tuesday, March 26th, although technically completed by Skybound Games. "Take Us Back," the fourth and final episode of The Walking Dead: The Final Season, will be appearing on consoles and PC.

"It’s time for the end. After years of fighting to survive, Clementine is now the leader of a community of lost children, and they’re depending on her to get them home safe," said Skybound in a press release, adding: "Her story comes to a dramatic and heart-wrenching climax in this final episode. The night will be over soon…"

I haven't played Walking Dead past the first season, but that does sound thrilling.

Anyway, pour one out for TTG, from Telltale Texas Hold 'Em and "The Great Cow Race," to "Culture Shock" and "What's New, Beelzebub?," through "Launch of the Screaming Narwhal" and "The City That Dares Not Sleep," to Nelson Tethers, to "A New Day," "It's About Time," and "A Crooked Mile" and finally to "Iron from Ice" through "Take Us Back." I should take the opportunity to note that Wallace and Gromit's Grand Adventures celebrates its tenth anniversary in three days (March 24th), and I, for one, would much rather remember that Telltale than the one that left over 200 employees without severance payment. Episode 3, "Muzzled!," was the first Sean Vanaman-penned Telltale release.

    ...might have to grab it at Epic Games instead...



    So, looks like it'll have to be on Epic...

    I will pick this up at some stage (would be good if it turned up on GOG again, might have to grab it at Epic Games instead...) but I hope that it is a fitting send off for TTG. Hopefully it is as impactful and has the emotional punch of TWD S1 or Sam & Max S3.
    Bye Telltale, it was mostly fun while it lasted.
