TellTale have done very well, but they aren't the savior of the adventure games. There was a period of decline in adventure game publishing between 1999 and 2002 or so, but it was the result of the management of the major US development studios putting all their bets on FPS and such. However the interest in this kind of games was never dead, especially in Europe where certain independent development studios managed to take up the slack and put together some amazing titles. To me TLJ, Syberia, Still Life, Farenheit lead the pack. Episodes don't get even close to the sense of immersion and story completion in these games.
