It’s been several years now since Telltale gave up on Bone. Do you wish they hadn’t? Do you think they did justice to the comics?

I have a great collection of comics and graphic novels and I admit that Jeff Smith’s Bone is one of the best I have ever read. Strangely enough, I have not played the adventure game yet. I have heard that only the two first parts (Away From Boneville and The Great Cow Race) out of nine were published. If that’s true, it is really a shame…It is a world full of potential….

I wish they had continued with it. They are totally underrated.

I do think that the story in the comics would have been more and more difficult to adapt going forward and maybe they realised they ahd bitten off more than they could at the time.

     

An adventure game is nothing more than a good story set with engaging puzzles that fit seamlessly in with the story and the characters, and looks and sounds beautiful.

I’m not sure, but they’ve might just hit the deal with Purcell at a time and opted to go with Sam & Max, as they were still not big enough for two separate projects.

I’ve never played Bone but I’m finding it interesting and I’ll probably give it a try. (at least, I know I’ll find some puzzles in there /sarcasm off Grin)

The Bone games probably just didn’t sell very well.

If it’s a choice between Bone and The Walking Dead, I’m with Bone 100%. Even better would be more Wallace and Gromit which I believe is the best Telltale series. But it’s useless to argue - violence and death sells.

I totally agree with you on that (Except I like Tales of Monkey the best, then Wallace and Gromit)

I guess I’m one of the few who doesn’t like their games at all.

I played Bone: Out from Boneville and really liked the characters, especially the dragon.  I never got to play The Great Cow Race because they ran out of steam before porting it to the Mac.  That reminds me.  I do have Smith’s graphic novel, which I started to read, put down for some reason, and never got back to finish it.  I’m going to bump it up in my reading queue because I was really enjoying it before I got distracted.

     

Not only did I fall off the diet wagon, I dragged it into the woods, set it on fire, and used the insurance money to buy cupcakes.
