Telltale Games: “We have let players down in the past”
Telltale games really changed and expanded the genre of storytelling. But, the main issue with Telltale games seems to be the old engine according to fans. They have been using the same engine for years But, they are changing the engine to the Unity Engine and had this to say on how they want to improve the series with The Unity Engine.
Telltale games has hit a transition period and it seems to be that things might be changing. In an interview with Eurogamer, The Walking Dead’s executive producer Brodie Andersen had this to say on how they want to improve the series:
“I don’t have anything specific to comment on Unity,” Andersen began when I asked him about the earlier report, “but for this season the Tool was the only option for us. I will say we certainly, I think, have let players down in the past a little bit, just in terms of our engine’s technology.
“It was really important this season to build some time in to make some improvements to the Tool to add polish and quality of life experience. Rendering was one of the big ones, we now have fully dynamic lighting, we’re using a different art style we call Graphic Black which is tailored to look like a living comic book. Animation as well, specifically facial movements, an over the shoulder camera and unscripted combat where in the past we’ve relied on QTE experiences.”
“We’re always pleased to innovate and maybe in the previous season we didn’t do enough of that.”
“There hasn’t been as many products in the marketplace this year compared to previous which has allowed us to focus more and move to more of working on one game at a time with a dedicated team,” Andersen explained. “We do have other irons in the fire but it’s safe to say we’re the biggest iron right now.”
“We know we ran a little hot in previous years and weren’t able to fully deliver the experiences we may have wanted to, so that was important to focus in on polished quality experience players love. We took that to heart before the development of this season and this team is excited about it.”
Telltale appears to be changing a lot in the coming future and as a fan of most of their games, I fully expect some new titles even more so with this being the final season of the Walking Dead.
The Walking Dead series has been a mainstay since 2012 and was the series that gave them name recognition. Will be sad to see it end but maybe this opens the door for a whole new IP and story for them to tell. Telltale Games is staying and I expect a new IP by 2020 to hit the market.
