Telltale Doing Walking Dead, New Puzzle Agent, New King's Quest

Because there's always room for more zombies, gnomes, and King Graham!

The tease seemed a little too obvious, but the speculation was accurate. Telltale Games is indeed working on a game series based on The Walking Dead. The developer has inked a contract with Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman to produce multiple games across several platforms. The first game slated to hit in late 2011.

In an interview that followed the announcement, Kirkman didn’t divulge much about the games or the platforms. But he did note that the series would be episodic, as is expected with a developer like Telltale, and said that the games are to be based in the comic book universe as opposed the one seen on the AMC television series.  
 

 
== TEASER ==In other Telltale in-development news, The Wall Street Journal’s All Things Digital blog is reporting that the developer is also creating a series based on Fables, which is a comic book series about fairy tale characters that live in real-world New York City.
 
Telltale's announcements certainly don't stop there. The company has revealed that it's returning to the mysterious small-town plight of Nelson Tethers with a new Puzzle Agent sequel. Even more surprisingly, the company has inked a deal with Activision to resurrect some of Sierra On-Line's classic adventure franchises, starting with a King's Quest reboot. 

 
  
 
And, lastly, the Jurassic Park series' Web site is now up. You can pre-order the upcoming five-episode series on PC and Mac for $29.99, which is about five dollars off from the normal, slow-poke price. The first game will see a release in April, so the wait won’t be too long. In the meantime, Telltale just gave us an inside look at Jurassic Park; watch it!

Telltale seems to have their hands full.

Christ these guys keep busy. Good for them.

Damned Gnomes! 
 
Really wonder how they are going to make a Fables game.

Posted by WinterSnowblind

Telltale are on fire. 
They've successfully revived some of my favourite franchises of all time, really can't wait for King's Quest. 
 
Puzzle Agent didn't do much for me though, there's just a complete over saturation of puzzle games at the moment.  Worse than even FPS'.

Posted by MisterMouse

will be interested in the Walking Dead stuff, and I want to try the Puzzle Agent out as well.

Posted by Cybexx

Wow Telltale is an explosion of development at the moment! Glad we are getting a new Puzzle Agent and a new King's Quest is a very unexpected development considering the indie work on The Silver Lining, I wonder if those two projects will sync up in any way?

Posted by l3illyl3ob

Telltale is making like 50 games right now.

Posted by boylie

That is a quantity of things they are doing

Posted by Underachiever007

Glad to see Telltale getting all these great projects.

Posted by Icicle7x3

Can't wait for the new King's Quest.
 
Alexander feels a strange pulling sensation.

" They are also doing something using FABLES.  I don't know how they are going to make that comic into a game but my guess is... adventure game. "
This.  And it's Telltale, so yeah, adventure game.  Haven't been disappointed by them yet, so a Fables game by them should be amazing.

walking dead game from tell tale?? good news!  weird to see king's quest coming back around too.

Posted by KingOfIceland

Puzzle Agent caught me by suprise, I goddamn loved the first game so I'm already way stoke-ified on that.

Posted by wrecks

Waiting for the Weird Science announcement. 

Posted by Krakn3Dfx

A new Puzzle Agent?  Oh hell yes.  My iPad has been yearning for this.

Posted by White_Silhouette

I would love to see a kings quest reboot. saying that i have not had a chance to try the silver lining yet

FFFUUUUUUUU EPIC MEGA HYPE!!  Police Quest and Quest For Glory also plz.
Posted by Inzzy

I like what Telltale are doing, but I wish they would maybe spend some more time on one game and make it even better. It looks like they are spreading themselves a little thin will all these games in development, I hope that this wont effect the end quality of the games they ship. After watching the JPql and will all the hitches and stiff animations, i fear that it is indeed effecting quality. 

Posted by Gizmo

Wonder what art-style they will go for in TWD... 
 
Cel-shaded 3D seems like a good bet.

Posted by Sparky_Buzzsaw

A new King's Quest developed by my favorite company on the market?  Fuck yes!  Merry early Christmas, bitches!

I hope they can keep the level of quality the same as before with this many games being developed at once.

Please make Space Quest! Please make Space Quest! Please make Space Quest! Please make Space Quest! Please make Space Quest! Please make Space Quest! Please make Space Quest! Please make Space Quest! Please make Space Quest! Please make Space Quest!
 
*ahem* That is all...

Edited by Mikemcn

Fuck a Walking Dead Videogame, its the show I want. I also don't much care for adventure games, or at least how Tell tale does them. At least its based on the comics. 

Posted by Noxville

Worried that they're starting to spread themselves a bit thin, that's like a million games they've got in development right now (give or take a few).

Posted by pekoe212

I'm  sorry, what?  A new King's Quest? Unbelievable. I thought hell would freeze over before an official KQ game was ever made again. 

Posted by Daveyo520

Go Telltale!

Posted by kalmis

Kings Quest remake, yes please. Couldn't care less about new zombie game.

Posted by JPJordan

OMG!  King's Quest were some of my first video game experiences!  I can't wait for this!  Also I love Fables, so hopefully that will be done well.

Posted by kratier

i think telltale figured it out, its cheaper to churn out crappy psn/xbl titles with 50k development funds than it is to try to strike it rich with large games
 
its like with cryptic, they just bank off initial sales, knowing nobody will subscribe in the longrun

They've never  made a crappy game.
Posted by LemonadePack

Wow! First Strong Bad and Back to the Future, then Jurassic Park, and now Walking Dead AND Fables?! Its like Telltale knows how to push all of my buttons. If Telltale Games were a woman, I'd marry it.

Wow, can you be more of a douchebag?
Posted by FlyingRat

Oh wow, was totally not expecting to ever see a puzzle agent sequel.

Posted by floodiastus

Jurrasic park looks very boring, some nice looking lightning effects though

Posted by artofwar420

Hell yeah! New Puzzle Agent!

Posted by Pop

I wonder if this is the announcement that Brad messaged Ryan on TNT.... hmm.. idk... Jeff was too amazed :D

Posted by Chris2KLee

Holy crap, King's Quest is coming back? Sweet! Also, please bring back Quest for Glory. PLEASE.

Posted by TimSpork

Oh god. If they do a Space Quest game my head may explode. If they do, it needs to have the guys who did Roger and the Narrator from Space Quest 6 in it.
