Other Genres
 
What are the chances Telltale may one day branch out from the casual and adventure genres, to produce games of other genres (i.e. action, RPG, etc)? I imagine the capabilities of Telltale's engine/toolset would have some influence here.

Good question.

We're (modestly?) trying to invent our own genre, a "Telltale" game. Obviously we're starting from adventure games, but we're certainly willing to mix things up and try new things. However, all our games will focus on story and character.

Aside from this sniping game I've wanted to make forever, I wouldn't expect any FPS games from Telltale.

Kevin Bruner Sniper is now at the top of my most anticipated games list.

*looks over her shoulder cautiously*

I'm not sure handing Kevin a gun would be good for productivity. :crazy:

Different kinds of gameplay tend to support different elements of story, so I think we'd be more likely to incorporate the effective elements of other genres into what we already do, rather than specifically making a shooter or an RPG or what have you.

Just one man's opinion.

An RPG/adventure in the vein of Quest for Glory would be nice to see...:D

I abosultely agree.

Adventure game doesn't mean great story and FPS doesn't mean bad story. XIII was one of my favorite games a few years ago becuase I really dug the story (and I'm awaiting a sequel!). As long as a Telltale game has a great story (and we can reasonably produce it!), we won't take anything off the table!

Maybe you can get 'VU Games' to cought up the rights. :P But yes, QFG is truly one of the best RPGs/adventure games ever.
