Studio would love to take on Star Wars
It’s a good time to be Telltale Games. With generally positive reactions to the first episode of The Wolf Among Us and the reveal of The Walking Dead: Season Two going as one would expect, the future is looking bright. Participating in a reddit Ask Me Anything, studio founders Dan Connors and Kevin Bruner were asked which intellectual property they’d love to work on.
“Coming from LucasArts we have so many people here that love Star Wars and have worked with the license so that would be a great fit and very cool,” explained Connors. “In addition we will be working on a few licenses that definitely fall into our dream IP scenario and we can’t wait to announce those.”
“I’ll also say a Telltale Star Wars game would make me VERY happy! We’ve got some IP coming up that pretty much checks all of my personal favorites, which absolutely amazes/honors me,” wrote Bruner. I dig moments like this where we can all come together to geek out over what we’d ideally like those projects to be. Personally, I’d go with an unimaginative vote for Star Wars since it sounds as if there’s real passion for such a game. That can make all the difference.
And for those wanting Telltale to revisit a certain pair of private investigators, Bruner said “We love Sam & Max and certainly haven’t forgotten about them! I think you’ll see something smaller (more like [Poker Night at the Inventory]) than a full Season, and probably not for a bit, but we have NOT forgotten about them, we’ve just been super busy growing like crazy.”
