"on the heels of the success of Walking Dead," a lot of executive higher ups understand better what Telltale does with licenses in their games.
The studio is getting a growing number of gentlemen callers, and they are some Telltale "never would have imagined" to be. Bruner says they'll be making more licensed game announcements in 2013.
Already Telltale has tackled Monkey Island, Jurassic Park, The Walking Dead, Sam & Max, and now DC Comics' Fable series in The Wolf Among Us due this year.
"One of the things we’ve always done in our history is licensed games. And we take a lot of pride in being what we think is the best licensed game company in the industry. Over the years we keep working on bigger and kind of more popular licenses, but we’ve always had the opportunity to work on things that we just love," Bruner told .
"We’ve got this long list of things that we love that might’ve been out of reach before, and certainly on the heels of the success of Walking Dead, people understand what we try to do a lot better, and people want to see if we can do a similar experience with other licenses."
The Walking Dead has proved such a huge success that Telltale is bringing season two later in the year, and have recently unveiled a DLC episode called 400 Days which takes place between season one and two.
"...we’ve had the opportunity to talk to some people we’ve wanted to talk to for a very long time, and we’ve also had some people approach us that were just, amazing, that we never would have imagined would’ve had wanted to talk to us eight years ago." One of the properties Telltale would like to play with is TV's Mad Men.
"So I think we’re going to be making some more license announcements coming up this year, but I think there’s going to be some things that people are like, “Amazing, I can’t wait for Telltale to do it,” and definitely some things where they’ll be like “That’s awesome, I would never have thought of a Telltale game about that,” but it’s going to be crazy cool."
The Walking Dead: 400 Days releases on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC soon.
