DAILY MANIFESTO

Telltalle is Making The Walking Dead and Fables Games

Posted on Friday, February 18 @ 12:38:49 Eastern by Blake_Morse


If there's one company that consistently does right by their properties, it's Telltale Games. They have an unnatural, inhuman ability to pick out just the right IPs to put their patented spin on. So when I found out that they would tackling both the Walking Dead and Fables comic book franchises, I just kind of nodded and said to myself, "That makes sense."

Most of you may already be familiar with Robert Kirkman's magnum opus about life in a post-apocalyptic world crawling with zombies - either through his New York Times Bestseller comic book series or through the extremely popular TV series of the same name. It's a series that's more character-driven than your average teen slasher midnight matinee, opting to be more of an expose into how people react in crisis situations and it makes for perfect fodder for a Telltale project. Telltale CEO Dan Connors was stoked about it, too:

We have been fans of The Walking Dead for years. As a narrative-driven company, we really appreciate Robert Kirkman’s masterful craftsmanship in every story... Fans of the franchise are going to be really excited by how we deliver this in the games.

Even Kirkman himself is stoked about it:

The folks at Telltale Games are a great choice for bringing The Walking Dead to life as interactive entertainment... They care as much as I do about the story and characters while seamlessly weaving that into the games they build.


And then, of course there's Fables, a series that centers around characters from fairytales who are now forced to live in New York City after an entity called "The Adversary" forces them from their world. They've set up a small community called Fabletown and live amongst normal or "The Mundane" people. But just because all the characters are from children stories doesn't mean this is a comic for kids. Shit gets seriously brutal, with sex, murder, intrigue, and even some violence.

Telltale, DC, and Image are holding their cards close on these projects and there's not much more information forthcoming on either title at this time, so it looks like we're going to have to wait until Comic-Con 2011 to find the rest of the details on these intriguing announcements. Or maybe we'll see something during GDC which kicks off in less than two weeks!
