The Walking Dead comes to an end on March 26 05 Feb, 2019 / 6 comments

. . . and as does Telltale.

What do you mean you don’t care? Look, things have been beyond slow in the Mojoverse over the last few weeks, likely because we updated the site, and the world is against us. However, word has it Zaarin is completing two super exciting features this week, so hopefully we can post something other than . . . this . . . soon.

    Huh, I completely missed that the third episode had come out. I wonder what these episodes are like now that they're at Skybound, givem that it's not an actual game company. Still, happy they get to finish their game after all, even if it's a bittersweet ending (and more bitter than sweet I guess).



    The episodes are extremely similar to when Telltale made them, because although Skybound is publishing them, they’re still made by a huge chunk of the same team as the earlier games. The “Still Not Bitten Team” in the credits is something like 30-40 ex-Telltalers, making the final two episodes from a corner of Telltale’s old office, using the same codebase, same file servers etc.



    Ah, thanks for the clarification. I knew part of the old team was still around for this, but I just wasn't aware of the kind of resources available to them (or that they could use part of the old office!). I'll make sure to play the 3rd (and later 4th) ep soon. Should be good/sad/good.

    Any bets on how many years we'll have to wait for the next Lucasarts related adventure game (either through the people or license involved)? I know that Telltale couldn't really claim that legacy anymore with their titles in recent years, and the chance of them going back to Sam & Max was less than 1%, even if the company had survived, but still, weird idea that it might actually be over now.

    Hopefully someone at Double Fine can still push through another remake or sequel with Sony/Disney.

    Two features this week!? Sweet!!
    Oh, hang on... Is this normal time or Mojo time (similar to Microsoft Minutes)?



    I mean . . . "this week" is a relative term.

    It still blows my mind that they decided to do two seasons after the second one supposedly tanked.
