Telltale Needs to Scale Down Their Ambitions

Telltale is a little studio based in San Rafael, part of the San Francisco bay area. It was initially formed by a bunch of ex LucasArts employees who were still in love with the old adventure games the company produced before they became a Star Wars machine that, itself, was ultimately shut down. Since then, they have been quietly championing point n’ click adventure games, steadily gaining critical acclaim—and more projects—until finally, they got their breakout moment with The Walking Dead. This is great for them because they deserve the recognition for producing such an emotionally engaging game. It’s also bad because they are now taking on too many projects for a studio that is not AAA size. (Culture, The Walking Dead - 400 Days, The Walking Dead: Episode 1 "A New Day", The Wolf Among Us: Episode 1 "Faith")
