Steve Gaynor, Sean Vanaman, and Tim Rogers playing Towerfall before podcasting.







In this week's special GDC 2014 episode, we recorded from Tyler's kitchen in downtown San Francisco with two groups of game developer guests who hiked over from GDC. First up, hear from Xaviant design director Tim Lindsey, whose resume also includes CCP, Bethesda, and Hi-Rez; Twinbeard Studios founder and Frog Fractions creator Jim Crawford; and Mode 7 Games' Ian Hardingham, who designed and programmed Frozen Synapse and is now working on Frozen Endzone.



The second group features Steve Gaynor, co-founder of The Fullbright Company and writer/designer of Gone Home; Sean Vanaman, former lead writer and project lead on The Walking Dead at Telltale Games, Idle Thumbs podcast co-host, and founder of Campo Santo; and Tim Rogers, creator of "abstract minimalist electronic sport" Videoball.

I hope they end up calling it Firewatch: Origins

Campo Santo is a new studio made up of top tier talent from – DEEP BREATH – Double Fine, Klei, Telltale, and 2K Marin. OK, that didn’t require much air to say out loud at all and I can type without breathing for probably, like, hours, but you get the idea. With the powers of Mark of the Ninja lead Nels Anderson, Walking Dead: Season One leads Sean Vanaman and Jake Rodkin, ex-Irrational and Double Fine man Chris Remo, and artist Olly Moss (among others) combined, we get a story-based mystery about isolation, the creeping unknown, and human relationships set in… rural Wyoming. Huh. It’s called Firewatch, and it seems interesting. I think. Also incredibly orange. Scant first details below.

In this week's episode, Tyler takes the helm while Evan is in Canada and the crew poorly segues between news topics including Watch Dogs, Dark Souls 2, DirectX 12, Batman: Arkham Knight, and the latest Diablo 3 patch. Wes talks about The Walking Dead, Cory is playing Shadowrun Returns: Dragonfall, and Tyler talks about The Yawhg and says some really offensive things while quoting South Park: The Stick of Truth. It turns out Cory hates poop jokes.

'eh? isn't this a game about feelings and crying and finding moments of hope and beauty in a decaying world? what am I doing here?'

It s good to see Clementine again, even if I m not particularly keen on the new company she’s keeping. I ve just finished playing the first two episodes of The Walking Dead season two and I m feeling a mixture of grief, frustration and relief. The latter is due to the strength of the second episode in particular. After a wobbly first episode, the transition to Clementine s time is showing a great deal of care and craft. Here s wot I think.>

title="Permanent Link to The Walking Dead: Season 2′s Episode 2 trailer shows A House Divided">Walking Dead







Telltale have released a trailer for the second episode of The Walking Dead: Season 2. It's called A House Divided, and will be a heart-warming tale of how, despite seemingly insurmountable differences, a group of people come together in a spirit of harmony and friendship. Oh wait, no, not that. The other thing. With the pettiness and regrets and monstrous retribution in a world where societal collapse leads to bitter, terrible survival.



The episode will be released next Tuesday, March 4th.

Wait! Don't kill that zombie! Probably for reasons!

TOO MANY TWOS IN THAT HEADLINE. 2 Episode 2 Furious. Live Free (Walking) Die Epi2odic. I don’t know anymore. I’m having a strange day. But anyway, The Walking Dead Season Two Episode Two has been trailerfied, and it’s looking as brooding and dramatic as ever. I see potential for plot twists, revelations, and the very real possibility that the walkingest dead of all… is man. I am interested to see where this one goes, especially given that it seems to be addressing some of my concerns after season two’s slightly lukewarm first episode. Watch below, but beware of minor spoilers.

title="Permanent Link to The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 2: A House Divided out in early March">thewalkingdeads2e2







The Walking Dead season two's debut episode All That Remains was released on December 17, and it looks like the follow-up will arrive under the three month mark. We don't have an exact release date quite yet, but Telltale announced on its official Twitter account that episode two, A House Divided, will arrive in early March.



Telltale's other episodic adventure, The Wold Among Us, has been coming along more slowly than the developer would have liked, with four months between its first and second episode. Thankfully, The Walking Dead seems to be right on track. And while we still don't have a hard date, the tweet is at least a little more specific than Telltale's previous tease on February 2, saying the next episode was "just around the corner." It's almost like they know we're desperate.



In the second season of The Walking Dead, you play as 11-year-old Clementine, picking up 16 months after the heart-wrenching finale of the first season. Our review of All That Remains found that it set the stage for some great character development, but that the 90 minute episode lacked payoff. Hopefully, A House Divided will remedy that.

title="Permanent Link to The Walking Dead’s next chapter is “just around the corner”, say Telltale">The Walking Dead







After a solid season two opener, the next chapter of The Walking Dead will soon be bearing down on us. At least, that's my translation of a recent Telltale tweet. What they actually said was that their next slice of episodic zombie adventure is "just around the corner". I checked, and it's not. All that's around our nearest corner is Edge magazine, and they're not dead. Or are they? Dammit Telltale, what do you know that we don't?



"Still. Not. Bitten." The next chapter of #TheWalkingDead Season 2 is just around the corner. Stay tuned for info! pic.twitter.com/1TzLFut559— Telltale Games (@telltalegames) February 3, 2014





There's no firm release date, but it sounds as though there'll be less of a wait between Walking Dead chapters than there was between episodes of The Wolf Among Us. Telltale's other episodic adventure is finally due to receive a new chunk-'o-story tomorrow, after a delay that stretched on for four months.



The Walking Dead: Season 2's first chapter was releah Desed 17tcember. You can read our review here.

title="Permanent Link to Telltale Games co-founder points to James Bond as an ideal project">WalkingDead-image







With the success of its excellent adaptation of The Walking Dead, Telltale Games has shown a talent for working with strong characters who occupy compelling, but also familiar worlds. So when the studio's co-founder Kevin Bruner says in an interview published this week that James Bond would make for a dream project, I have to sit up and listen.



Bruner, in a conversation with Xbox: The Official Magazine, was asked to describe his ideal next licensed game, if "money and politics" weren't a factor. He brought up 007. And Bruner came ready with a specific critique about some of the games we've previously seen featuring the British secret agent.



"I'm a giant James Bond fan and I'm always frustrated by games that make him a mass murderer," Bruner says. "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."



Another aspect of the films that works against the mass-murderer problem that Bruner points out is their inherent humor. The Bond films often make use of humor to make some of the spy's more sensational adventures feel more grounded. Moonraker, anyone? A story-driven adventure game Telltale's specialty would be a great way to highlight aspects of the Bond character that might have been been somewhat overlooked in previous games featuring the secret agent.



But it's ultimately speculation right now, and in the last six months we've also heard about Telltale's interest in both Star Wars and Game of Thrones. The latter has already been announced as an official game for the studio, so perhaps there's some weight behind Bruner's latest comments regarding the man from MI6.

It’s finally time. The Walking Dead season one had its share of ups and downs, but its tale of broken hearts and busted skulls turned eyeballs into waterfalls and put Telltale on the map. Can season two live up to the incredibly high expectations surrounding it? Could lessons learned on the first season and new “shows” like The Wolf Among Us allow it to surpass all that’s come before? Or is this promising undead upstart already out of juice? Here’s wot I think of The Walking Dead Season Two Episode One: All That Remains. >Warning: big spoilers for season one ahead.
