Games you would be interested in making
 
Since you plan on bringing licenses from from "notable authors, game designers, comic books, and cartoons", are there any licenses that you hope to get hold of one day?

Not ones that you necessarily will get, but ones that would perhaps be your dream to get :P

Hammerite 04-14-2006 09:11 AM

i always thought a maniac mansion 3 would be a good idea (not episodic tho) and a grim fandango 2 will always be welcome but i suppose they are all in the sith grasp of lucas arts

Junkface 04-14-2006 09:14 AM

I've always wanted a Batman adventure game (he is the World's Greatest Detective.) What do you say Telltale? Will you do it for me?

wicked 04-14-2006 09:16 AM

What plans do you have for future games? Are they going to be funny like the Bone series, or something more serious?
Do you have the intention to make sequels to other popular games (of course, if Telltale has the legal rights) like Day of the Tentacle, Monkey Island, Full Throttle or Grim Fandango?

We should let theese people breathe! :)

Hammerite 04-14-2006 09:28 AM

OOoooooooooooOOOOOOOooh!!
What about LOST!

Dasilva 04-14-2006 09:32 AM

Probably a Oblivion-looking Quest for Glory sequel or remake of the whole series.

Their making a lost game you know. ;)

kbruner 04-14-2006 09:35 AM

We love the funny/cartoony stuff, but there's a lot of "serious" stuff we'd like to do as well. I think Bone and CSI show we can do both fairly well!

HeatherLee 04-14-2006 10:06 AM

As long as I am just dreaming....

I'd love to get my designer hooks in A Series of Unfortunate Events. Yes, I know there's a game already and I admit I haven't played it but it was based on that mediocre movie. It'd be hard to find a license that was more perfect for adventure gaming.

There is also this little comic I picked up at WonderCon called Owly that I think would make a really fun game.

Everyday I think of something else that would be a fantastic game. And, of course, I'd like to be able to make them all. Sadly, Kevin and Dan won't let me. ;)

Hammerite 04-14-2006 10:08 AM

Have you ever seen Terry Gilliam's 'Twelve Monkeys'?
That would make a terrific action/adventure hybrid.

I remember Owly when it was a Web Comic :D
But then they made it a subscription site :shifty:

I quite liked the "S.U.E" movie(Billy Connoly again :D) but I did expect a bit more since A friend had always went on about the books.

You'r right though, a series where they make weird inventions out of random objects couldn't be more perfect for an adventure game :P

I agree. I love that movie. :)

Hmm... maybe it's time to rent it again. :D

HeatherLee 04-14-2006 10:32 AM

Twelve Monkeys would be great, but everyone knows the ending already!

Nonetheless something in that vein would be neat.

Anything where the author paints a really rich world to explore is great fodder for adventure gaming.

Lucien21 04-14-2006 10:36 AM

I have always thought Amelie would make a fantastic adventure game

Squinky 04-14-2006 10:42 AM

How about making a game based on a series of fantasy novels? Things like Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter have already been done, but something more obscure like George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire or Elizabeth Haydon's Symphony of Ages would be really cool.

Karmillo 04-14-2006 10:45 AM

Or maybe even Discworld :D

fov 04-14-2006 10:47 AM

Oooh.... The Dark Is Rising would make a great adventure series.

Jake 04-14-2006 10:50 AM

(Discworld)

Speaking of Terry Gilliam, Brazil would make a terrific game. I also wish I could rescue Howard the Duck from oblivion, because I was a fan of the comic book before someone [cough, cough] made that awful movie.... Let's see, what else... Cat's Cradle (Vonnegut) maybe, Calvin and Hobbes as long as we're dreaming... hmm...

If you manage to make something more like La Jetée - the short film which inspired Twelve Monkeys - you've got my admiration forever.

HeatherLee 04-14-2006 11:00 AM

Oooh....Amelie! Genius!

I am a huge fan of George R.R. Martin's work, but I am not sure that an adventure game is the right genre for it. That is to say, I could see doing parts of the story as an adventure game, but....gosh I don't know. It is just so epic and huge. It hurts my brain to think abut it.

If you could make one game for each character it could work. Or maybe one for each faction. Other than that, you'd have to make very hard choices about whose story to tell. I don't think you could create a coherent experience out of, say, the whole first book while still telling all the different character's stories like he does.

If I had infinite time and money, the way I would do it would be to make one game for each character, telling their story all the way through the books. Then the next game would be a different character and you would see things through their eyes instead. Whew...that would be quite the undertaking!

Junkface 04-14-2006 11:05 AM

Something which as far as I'm aware has never been done before, and I think would be really interesting, is an interactive biopic, something like Raging Bull or Pollock in game form.

Perhaps you could try "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote"... imagine the marketing campaign "You missed it on the big screen but you can play it on your PC" :P

Poor Terry... such a nice guy but so much underestimated and unrecognised.

kbruner 04-14-2006 11:19 AM

I love what you guys are suggesting. We really want to push the envelope of what can be turned into a game! It's funny, there was a lot of backlash when the "Desperate Housewives" game was announced last month, but I loved it! I firmly believe that you can make almost anything interactive if your clever enough!

Nice try. I've seen that film. It was brilliant, but I think the best engine to make the game adaptation would be Powerpoint.

Lucien21 04-14-2006 11:21 AM

Well season 1 was as much about a murder investigation as being a soap opera so you could probably have made a pretty decent stab at an adventure game out of the concept.

That would be very, very fun and interesting. Human beings have such fascinating life stories and it would be really fantastic to let other people "play through" someone's life. Not to mention educational!

There's going to be a Desperate Housewives game?! :crazy:

I wonder what it'll be... a Sims clone? :shifty:

(I'd love to see a story-driven Desperate Housewives game, but somehow I doubt that's what we'll end up with.)

Melanie68 04-14-2006 11:25 AM

There is already. There's a thread in General about it (I'll look for it). :)

Edit: Dale beat me to it...

That's why I said you would have my admiration forever... it's not something I usually give very easily :9

fov 04-14-2006 11:28 AM

Sigh. :frown:

I've always thought the Sims would be a great jumping off point for an adventure game (in some abstract way that I have trouble articulating)... maybe they'll still find a way to inject a story.

Hammerite 04-14-2006 12:39 PM

why dont you try finishing off the loom trilogy because i guess some of you veterans wouldve worked on the original and the other two before cancellation.

HeatherLee 04-14-2006 12:49 PM

I loved Loom too. It would be fun to do more of those games but I doubt it would be possible.

NcroManiac 04-14-2006 01:47 PM

How about a re-telling of Jacob's Ladder?

jp-30 04-14-2006 03:10 PM

I'd love episodic X-Files adventure games. Dark, atmospheric, but also hilarious in places. I guess now the TV series is long gone it would be hard, and the fans would gripe about stand-in voices.

Other 'historic' IP's I think would be really fun as episodic adventure games include Thunderbirds / Stingray etc, Dr Who, Young Ones, Blackadder (those may all be too UK-centric) and maybe some of those awful 80s properties like A-Team, Knight Rider, McGyver, if handled with a bit of a nod-and-a-wink etc.

Oh and Hitchhiker's Guide needs a retelling, though what with Douglas Adams stubborn refusal to participate further in that property (or any other), I guess it would be very hard to do... :(

Hammerite 04-14-2006 09:53 PM

the young ones was one damn good show.

Yeah, the ultimate in stubborn, really. You know he died, right?

jp-30 04-15-2006 01:15 AM

Yes.
