Tomorrow it’s time for the second episode of Telltale’s The Wolf Among Us. According to a tweet made by the studio, we’ll probably not have to wait that long for the next episode of The Walking Dead either, it’s just around the corner.
Telltale Games has made a tweet about the next episode of their critically acclaimed game The Walking Dead. Apparently, the episode A House Divided “is just around the corner.”
The first episode was released in the middle of December and many people have criticized Telltale Games for taking too long between episodes. They’ve also been angry about the developers not keeping players up to date about what is happening with the game, some people even started a petition on change.org, trying to get Telltale to be more open about their development.
The second season the game features main protagonist Clementine, a young girl trapped in a post apocalyptic world. The first episode ended with some really interesting cliffhangers and hopefully, many questions will be answered in a not so distant future.
Telltale Games have previously announced that the second episode of The Wolf Among Us will be launched in the first week of February. Earlier today, the developing studio tweeted that the episode Smoke and Mirrors will be released on Tuesday the 4th of February.
Finally, the long wait is almost over. The first episode of the game was released in October last year, which is around four months ago. Many people have been furious about the long wait between episodes, but Telltale has apologized for it, saying that they encountered several bumps down the road.
“We are very concerned about the long delay for [episode two], but this is one of those occasions where several things conspired against us (not to mention the additional delays due to the holidays).”
The episode entitled Smoke and Mirrors will be released on February 4th on PC and Mac, and on Playstation and Xbox the day after. People playing the game on iOS will have to wait until some time next week.
Students at a school in Bergen, Norway are being taught about moral and ethics with the help of Telltale’s multiple award winning game Walking Dead.
If you’ve played one of the most critically acclaimed titles of the 21th century, you probably already know that The Walking Dead is heart touching game. The point and click survival game by Telltale features many different dilemmas and choices to be made, who gets to live, who gets to die, who gets fed, who gets to go hungry?
Tobias Staaby is a teacher at Nordahl Grieg Upper Secondary School in Bergen, and he has his students playing the first season of the game in order to teach them about ethics. Before all the difficult choices, the students anonymously vote on the alternatives given by the game, then they proceed with the alternative most voted by the pupils. Tobias has been playing the game with his students for around two weeks, and in an interview with Norwegian NRK, he says that the results have been positive.
“The students are very commited and they are very motivated. The Walking dead presents some dilemmas they probably would not have thought of otherwise. That makes their answers to a greater extent their own. “
The clip from NRK can be seen below and is in Norwegian. So unless you speak it, I suggest you turn on the English subtitles.
Telltale Studios has many projects at the moment, recently they released the first episode of the second season of The Walking Dead, before that they released the first episode of The Wolf Among Us. But if the co-founder of Telltale could obtain any licence he wanted, it would be James Bond.
Many people are currently frustrated about Telltale Games taking too long to release the second episode of The Wolf Among Us, a game based on the Fable comics. Three months have passed since the first episode ‘Faith’ was released and fans are going bananas about the ‘waiting game’ taking forever.
Recently, during VGX Awards, Telltale announced that they obtained a licence for Game of Thrones and Borderlands. According to an interview with The Official Xbox Magazine, Telltale Chief Technology Officer and Co-founder Kevin Bruner would love to obtain the licence for Agent 007, if money and politics were not an issue. He says in the interview that he’s a giant James Bond fan and that he becomes frustrated by games that always tend to make him a mass murderer.
“He’s a super-spy, and that’s a different skillset. The films make him less of a mass murderer, and there’s not much killing in the books – more spying and intrigue.”
Hopefully, Telltale Games will continue the development of The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us, Game of Thrones and Tales from the Borderlands, before they start any more projects.
Following their announcement of a new Borderlands game, Telltale have also revealed that they are working with HBO to create an episodic game series based on Game of Thrones.
The announcement was made at last night’s VGX ceremony, and while Telltale haven’t yet gone into detail, we do know that the series will draw inspiration from both the books and HBO’s television series. Game of Thrones is one of the hottest IPs at the moment, and the series’ world and characters seem perfectly suited for a Telltale game.
The news has been anticipated for a month or so, following a report from IGN, but it was only last night that the series was formally announced.
Dan Connors, CEO of Telltale Games, spoke to interviewers following the announcement trailer premiere. ”We’ll be taking advantage of all the fiction to make something great,” Connors says, ”We’re just really getting into it right now and thinking about characters — who has the most at stake, who has the biggest impact on the world.”
As previously revealed, The Walking Dead: All That Remains will be heading to Steam this month. The game has now gotten a release date: December 18.
All That Remains is now available for pre-purchase at $22.49 which includes a 10% discount on the Steam store.
The game will pick up where it left off in Season One with Clementine who must “outwit both the dead and the living in situations that will test their morals and control the flow of the story through their decisions and actions.”
According to a tweet posted by Telltale Games earlier this week, the mysterious Omid will also be returning to the series.

Telltale’s stellar success story, The Walking Dead, has been a huge hit with the staff at PCGMedia, so we’re eagerly awaiting episode 4, Around Every Corner. We’ve reviewed every episode so far, and this won’t be any exception.
It’ll release October 9th for $4.99, but remember you can get the complete season pass here for 16.99.
‘No Time Left’, Episode 5, has not had any details released as of yet.
Telltale has announced the release of the fourth episode of The Walking Dead game. Titled Around Every Corner, the newest episode will see its release this October. There has been no information as to exactly what date.
Even though each of the episodes is available by download, Telltale has also announced a boxed retail compilation of all five episodes that will be released on December 4.
The last 3 episodes were released two month apart from each other so it’s pretty safe to assume that the fifth and final episode of TheWalking Dead will be released at the same time as the boxed retail compilation.
Here’s the teaser trailer for Episode 4. If you haven’t played the first three episodes then be warned: this video is 100% spoilers.
Activision in association with Terminal Reality is also hopping on to The Walking Dead bandwagon. They announced in July that they are releasing a first-person shooter unoriginally called The Walking Dead video game. The game will be based on the TV show unlike the Telltale version which is based on the comics. The Walking Dead video game is expected to be released in 2013.
