Telltale games quickly became a legendary studio due to the release of iconic series including Sam & Max. The company’s ability to create memorable characters and a captivating story made the studio a firm favourite among adventure game aficionados. Traditionally, adventure titles revolve around point and click mechanics to merge items together, investigate the surrounding area or speak to various characters. In recent times, Telltale revolutionized the adventure genre and created their own new form of storytelling. The latest Telltale games offer an engaging narrative and alters the story based on your decisions during conversations. There’s not much puzzle solving involved or trying to fathom how to progress to the next section.
This has spawned a number of highly successful releases including The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us and Tales from the Borderlands. It also inspired the creators of Life is Strange, which is one of the greatest games I’ve ever seen. The latest Humble Bundle includes a number of the company’s games at ridiculously low prices. The opening tier includes Back to the Future: The Game, Sam & Max: Devil’s Playhouse, Poker Night at the Inventory, Puzzle Agent 1 & 2 and The Walking Dead Season 1. This costs a mere $1 and offers exceptional value. The Walking Dead Season One on its own will keep you entertained for some time due to its gripping story.
The next tier comes with The Walking Dead: 400 days, The Wolf Among Us, Poker Night 2, Tales from the Borderlands and there’s more games to come very soon. Honestly, I would recommend paying the extra for this option because Tales from the Borderlands is hilarious and contains some of the best writing I’ve encountered in a video game. The final package which requires a payment of $12 or more is bundled with Games of Thrones and The Walking Dead Season 2. These are another highlight and well worth the asking price.
