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.
In fact he'd even like to spin a point-and-click adventure for Valve's Half-Life. Telltale Games was founded back in 2004 and has since brought external IPs to life episodically.
"Coming from LucasArts we always felt we could do a great Star Wars story game," CEO Dan Connors told in an interview. "We also love the idea of building out a deeper story to a great game franchise, something like Half Life Stories or Halo Stories." The Walking Dead has certainly been the studio's darkest themed property.
“With The Walking Dead the mood was definitely a lot more serious, but the areas we were pushing on from a gameplay standpoint and a narrative standpoint were fascinating and really motivated people,” he said.
Such is the success of The Walking Dead that a second season is starting to percolate. "Right now we are just starting to form the concept for season two,” he says. “This all remains to be seen but we are definitely figuring out how to carry the saves over.” There are plenty of choices made throughout the first season, so what could carry over?
