    Telltale will be announcing five new multi-platform projects during a formal event in San Francisco on Thursday, February 17.
    Among them, says the invitation, is "one based on a just-launched property from the TV and comic book world whose popularity is changing life as some know it."

    To me the description sounds like The Walking Dead. If this is true then it will be awesome, I couldn't think of any other game developer that's prefect for this property.
    What do you think? Based from the description do you think it's The Walking Dead?

    Even better comic book series. You have 6 million people watching just the premiere episodes with a fantastic 18-49 demo watching as well its smart going ahead with a video game.

    The world of the Walking Dead seems more suited to TellTales type of gameplay. I really can't envision an action game set in that universe. It's possible, but I think the dramatic pacing is more suited to a methodical adventure game type.

    Telltale make awesome adventure games and I'd love to see their take on The Walking Dead. It's got episodic arcs, It's dialogue heavy, there's actually very combat-light. It'd be perfect for Telltale to make an adventure game series out of the franchise. I'd love to see how they would do it.

    Telltale is even going for something different with the Jurassic Park game than their other previous games so it'll be interesting to see what they'll do with this property. But yeah I could see it being heavy on story and action-wise.

    They'll probably save the humor for Sam & Max. I can't see JP and more so TWD being a humorous game... at all. Maybe slight moments... but I doubt it.

    It'll definitely will be on a more serious route since I guess TT wants to make it have the same tone as the comic and tv series.

    Telltale Announces The Walking Dead Video Game

    It's unclear what genre the game will be -- Kirkman told IGN, "The game is at an early stage, and we're in the process of mapping this all out now." However we do know it'll take place in the comic book world and be an episodic series.

    There isn't any specific platforms for the project yet, but the agreement covers PC, Mac, consoles, handhelds, mobile and social gaming media. Telltale is looking at a fourth quarter 2011 release.

    Source


    I'm excited for this game already. :yay:

    I wonder how many staff Telltale has, they seem to be eating up licenses left, right and centre.

    If it's going to be Episodic, they should release each episode between TWD seasons.

    Sounds good, like that they follow with the comics canon and I hope that TT can talk on how's the gameplay later on.

    Wow, I forgot that they're going to show something from this game. I like the direction they're going with for this game. It's not going to re-tell the same story all over again but instead having a new story that's still set in the canon comic universe.

    I'm dying to see some gameplay footage or at least know how the gameplay will be since it's going to be something Telltale has never done before.

    Wow, love the look of this. I know a lot of people despise cell-shaded material, but it really works here. Looks like the comic art (albeit in color). Looking forward to more.
