Telltale has dreams of becoming the next Valve

Telltale Games has ambitions to become a "major, first-class digital publisher" within the next five to ten years "right there with Valve," the firm's co-founder Kevin Bruner has said. (Industry, PC, PS3, Telltale Games, The Walking Dead: Episode 1 "A New Day", Valve, Xbox 360)

Maybe you should expand your genres and do non point and click games in the future.

And do they actually have any original ips, or is every game they've done based off the coattails of someone elses hard work.

they are way too comfortable with what they develop, they need to expand their genres into uncharted Territory. valve wouldn't exist without a combination of risk and some of the best writing in the business.

Obviously they need to do this if they want to be like Valve but as far as being themselves go I'm really liking their point and click games. Sure they have one thing they do but it's one thing that completely sets them apart from everyone else out there right now and fulfills a much needed niche in the gaming world.

Don't get me wrong, I hope everyone not involved solely in the creative areas of this company gets fired and then beaten up and struck by lightning as they leave the offices. I just have to admit I'm loving their take on point and click adventure gameplay, especially with the Walking dead, with which they're close to perfecting their formula.

Isn't Valve focusing on a small number of genres too?

At least they are making a profit and doing well. If they keep that going they will be fine. I do agree with them only creating LEGO games, episodic stories, and such as the only real thing they have attempted, but maybe they are building up the bank to try something else in the near future to shoot them up there with the big leagues.

Don't confuse Telltale (episodic adventures) with Travellers Tale/TT Games (Lego games).

Somehow their statemant doesn't make much sense though as Valve is so much more than just a publisher for digital games.

Well, a lot of work needs to be done if they are hoping for that.

they need to work more on their game testing before they release stuff, a lot of their stuff is bugged out.

well, good luck with that

steam is the top dog, no one is anywhere close, psn and xbox live are utter garbage compared to steam, let alone these little startups

lol....beamdog.....nice game selection, it makes psn's library look robust and their prices seem "fair"

Greenmangaming is great for deals, buy a lot of my steam games there

They've got the whole refusing to release the next part of an episodic series on time and ignoring customer's questions down. It's a start.

Well they have the release schedule down pat.

Not a bad goal but you have your work cut out for you.

Yknow. It's funny. I considered that when Ep 3 was released quite late for the PC :/

True to say they have led the way in terms of digital distribution.
hazelamy  +   1176d ago
well, they seem to be developing similar attitudes to deadlines.

still, they've got a very, very, long way to go to match Valve's idea of what "episodic games" means.
valve seemed to think it meant once a year. ^_^

I don't see why not. What makes Valve, VALVE is Gabe Newell and his co-workers. Trying to make a by-paper style business model won't get you there. I've heard stories of Gabe sending his employee's parents to get better health care is a GREAT example how the culture of the workplace is. If you act like douchebags in the EA and Ubisoft *cough ZY *COUGH NGA industry, then no matter how rich and big your business are, you will NEVER be like Valve. Here's hoping...
