Telltale courts Scott Pilgrim, doesn't get any 19 Feb, 2011 / 8 comments

Telltale isn't exactly hurting for licenses to work on right now, but it's pretty likely that they're always pursuing properties of interest to them. At one point, one such property was apparently Scott Pilgrim, a popular comic adapted last year into a movie directed by Edgar Wright. In a recent tweet by the comic's creator Bryan Lee O'Malley, he reveals that he was approached by the game industry's most active story-based studio:

Telltale wanted to do Scott Pilgrim but I said no. I couldn't see it as an adventure game. All respect to them, though

Hopefully we don't find any similar comments on LEC's twitter feed. Giving it a peek so you don't have to, it would appear you'd be lucky to find anything that so much as acknowledges the existence of anything not Star Wars, so I think we're okay.

    It would have been perfect as an adventure game! What a fool!

    Yeah, I don't think it's possible to one-up the XBLA/PSN game that came out last year. That game bottled everything good about the source material, and hurled it into our living rooms like a gassy and delicious Molotov cream soda.

    Apart from releasing it on the PC or adding online modes.

    I agree with Bryan Lee O'malley. I can't see it as an adventure game, since most of the important scenes of the comics and the movie are action-based.

    Though an AG with multiple genres integrated into it would have been interesting. Sorta of getting meta with the meta, more or less.

    I totally agree with him, Scott Pilgrim as an adventure wouldn't really make sense, it wouldn't fit the dynamic at all. Plus the Scott Pilgrim game was pretty much the shit anyhow.

    I love Scott Pilgrim and I love Telltale, so I kind of wish this would have happened. Oh well!

    Interesting... I think I kind of agree with O'Malley, though.

    :( A Scott Pilgrim Telltale game would have been the best!
