Telltale maybe working on original IP in the future, and news on upcoming games 08 Jan, 2013 / 7 comments

UK magazine GamesTM has interviewed Dan Connors where he says that Telltale is looking to start working on a new, original IP within the next two years, probably with a partner. He also reveals that Fables (based on the comic three of our readers have read) is coming next, with no mention of King's Quest. Does this mean they've ditched it? Did they realize that making a game whose fans' idea of fun is getting stuck, solving insane puzzles, and dying a million times would be no fun at all? Stay tuned!

    I'm pretty sure they'll cancel King's Quest. The real question is: HOW will they handle the cancellation? I hope they won't pretend nobody's ever announced it in the first place...



    Well, that's basically how they handled the Bone franchise.

    Nooooo - I still want to see what TT would do with a property like King's Quest. I can see them paying homage to the original but also re-interpreting it in an interesting way. But at this point, after playing the Walking Dead, I'd be excited to see what they'd do with Fables or Star Wars or whatever they can they're planning/acquiring rights to.

    Bah, Kings Quest games were great. I played em all as a kid and loved them. Yes you died a lot, taught you to save your game. Something that came in handy when I started playing early Square RPGs.

    Yes they were harder than shit. Made it easier to beat Lucas Arts games by comparison. I used to take notes and make maps to help with puzzles.

    But then again, I've always been pretty 1337.

    They've been promising original IP for years. I'll believe it when it's actually announced.

    Telltale won't be making KQ. You'll see.

    Fingers crossed King's Quest is out the door. Never understood the appeal of those games.

    Fables, though, I'm optimistic about. Premise of the comics sounds good.
