The Walking Dead has been a tremendous success for Telltale Games, with season two just now entering the concept phase at the studio, reveals CEO and co-founder Dan Connors. The developer was founded by former LucasArts talent, which is why Sam & Max and Monkey Island were among their ambitions. Connors would love a crack at Star Wars, or even Halo.
The Walking Dead developer Telltale Games is all about bite sized gaming experiences these days as the studio releases TV-like seasons for its games. Episodes 'engage over time' avoiding one offs. Over the past decade a lot of the best storytelling "has been episodic storytelling," like The Sopranos or Game of Thrones. Telltale wanted to capture the "strength in that model" for gaming.
