If there’s a game studio who’s on a roll this past year, it would have to be Telltale Games. After inking deals with the hugely popular Game of Thrones and Minecraft franchises, it was announced by Marvel a few days ago that Marvel and Telltale Games will be making video games together based on Marvel intellectual property. Given Telltale Games’ proven ability to accurately convey emotional and brooding stories in previous games like The Walking Dead, this would go perfectly in hand with the darker stories of the Marvel Universe, and I’m honestly struggling to contain my excitement.
Marvel Games creative director, Bill Roseman, did say, however, that the games developed under the partnership would feel “exquisite” and “sexy” – this is interesting as this isn’t generally the vibe that I get from Telltale Games’ current games, despite their storytelling prowess, so presumably some collaboration is going to go on between the two parties to make these new games “pop”. Unfortunately, Marvel hasn’t yet divulged which superheroes will be getting the Telltale treatment, but we’ll let you know as soon as we do.
