Default Welcome, Telltale!

Shhh.... they're here! Okay, everyone stop talking about them, and start talking to them.

Telltale Games, of course, needs no introduction in these here parts: they're the independent development team founded by former LucasArts staffers that worked on some of the all-time greats, and are now focusing their attention on Bone, CSI, and, um... some other franchise. Something to do with a dog and rabbity thing whose names always escape me.

So that's Telltale, but who are the men and women behind the curtain? Well, we couldn't get ALL of them into the AG Volkswagon to answer your questions, but we came pretty darn close. Joining us today, though likely not all at once, are CEO Dan Connors, CTO Kevin Bruner, and the initial-less but no less important Senior Designer Dave Grossman, and Author/Designers Heather Logas and Greg Land.

Welcome to AG, Telltale crew. It's a privilege to have you with us, and we look forward to mercilessly picking your brains! (Wait, that didn't come out quite like I intended. Too late now, though, the Developer Chat is underway!)

It was my fault. I asked Doug to open the forum.

Kevin brought donuts to work. There's a little bit of a sugar high going around the office.

Hi Greg!

You are the first Telltale person to venture in. For that, you get a cookie. (Or a donut, as the case may be. )

Hey everybody, I'm Randy, lead programmer on the Bone games. I didn't get a donut since I'm not in the office today, but I'm here anyway. Hey, Greg, can you save me a glazed?

Hi Randy!

We'll save you a donut. Might be gross by Monday though.
