Default 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

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

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?

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!

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

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!

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.

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
But then they made it a subscription site

I quite liked the "S.U.E" movie(Billy Connoly again ) 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

I agree. I love that movie.

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

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.

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.

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.
