Telltale Games Closing Down

Gotta admit, quite surprised as I didnt imagine they were in any financial difficulty, what with the big IPs they were given. Even though the performance of their games were questionable, I did at least enjoy the stories those games told.

Such a shame but I guess any company can mismanage then crash and burn.

I'll have to admit that I've rather drifted away from them for a while, as I never really liked the interactive movie format they favoured in recent years, but I'm still a bit of a fan of their older games.

It does appear to be more a case of mismanagement and over-expansion rather than the bottom falling out of their market entirely though, so perhaps the more lucrative properties will be picked up and finished off by another publisher.

And the Adventure Genre dies again.

Hardly. They produced a very limited subset of games that happened to be big name licences. There are masses of adventure games around now.

Looks like the remaining Walking Dead episodes may continue.
