Telltale Games’ Game of Thrones teaser trailer

Telltale Games’ Game of Thrones teaser trailer

Well, I’m surprised it took Telltale Games this long to announce a Game of Thrones property.

Details on the ground are scarce so far, little more than a single twitter post:

It’s TRUE! We’re working with @HBO to create an all-new episodic game series based on GAME OF THRONES in 2014! #VGX pic.twitter.com/d5GkhS2MOw

It’s an understandable choice to adapt HBO’s dark-fantasy juggernaut, but one does wonder how they’ll be treading new ground. Will this be a narrative in the gray spaces of the map, or a retread of the series’ Big Events? It’s a peculiar choice to adapt the most-familiar Game of Thrones era when the Dunk and Egg prequels lie untapped.

Nonetheless, this is definitely one property to watch, especially after the much-acclaimed success of The Walking Dead. If anyone can pull off the bleak, cut-throat atmosphere of Westeros, Telltale can.

[Review] Back to the Future: The Game – Retail Edition (PS3/Wii)

Last December, we here at Pixelated Geek took a first look at the first episode of Telltale Games’ five-part time-traveling point-and-click adventure series, Back to the Future: The Game.  A welcome entry to an already stellar film trilogy, Back to the Future: The Game’s premiere episode was not only entertaining, but also helped pave the way for an enjoyable, if a bit too easy, five episode trip through time.

Now, one year later, not only has the series come to a close with its fifth episode, “Outatime,” but Telltale has also released a retail version for both PlayStation 3 and Wii consoles.  And, in honor of its release, we take a look, not only at the retail release, but also Marty and Doc’s interactive adventure through time as a whole.

And let me tell you; Back to the Future fans will want to give it a look.

Back to the Future: The Game, Episode Four – Now Available From Telltale Games

You know, it’s been a little over a month since we last saw Marty McFly.  And, as luck would have it, the ongoing saga that is Telltale Games‘ Back to the Future: The Game continues today with the release of “Double Visions,” the fourth episode in the five-part, point-and-click adventure game.

Picking up after “Citizen Brown’s” mind-blowing cliffhanger, which this series really seems to love by the way, Marty must find a way to escape the alternate 1986 created over the course of the series and head back to where it all began.

Back to the Future: The Game, Episode Three – Now Available from Telltale Games

The ongoing saga that is Telltale GamesBack to the Future: The Game continues today with the release of “Citizen Brown,” the third episode in the five-part, point-and-click adventure game.  Picking up from “Get Tannen’s” jaw-dropping cliffhanger, Marty’s adventure brings him to yet another alternate 1986, which isn’t what it seems to be.

Joining the cast this time around is Claudia Wells, reprising her role as Marty’s girlfriend, Jennifer Parker, for the first time since the original film, having been replaced by Elizabeth Shue in the sequels after leaving the film business.  However, as Marty soon finds, this isn’t the same Jennifer he remembers, thanks in part to the twisting of the space-time continuum.

[Review] Back to the Future: The Game, Episode Two – Get Tannen! (Mac/PC/PS3/iPad)

Ladies and gentlemen, get ready to fire up your time circuits.  After two months of waiting, the second installment of Telltale Games’ five-part Back to the Future series, “Get Tannen!”, finally hit the web last week.

A point-and-click adventure game in the same vein as Tales of Monkey Island or Sam & Max, the first episode of the series, “It’s About Time”, proved that a decent Back to the Future game was in fact possible to make.  Thankfully, “Get Tannen!” proves it wasn’t just a fluke, offering an interesting experience that builds on what Telltale established with the first installment of the series.

As the series can essentially be considered one long game broken up into five smaller parts, not much has changed in terms of gameplay or graphics.  So, if you haven’t checked out our review of Episode One, why are you even reading this?  In fact, Telltale is still offering the Mac/PC version of the first episode for free on their website, so check that out first and then come see what we have to say about Episode Two, “Get Tannen!”.

Still here?  Good.  Now let’s move onto what has changed since Episode One.

[Review] Back to the Future: The Game, Episode One – It’s About Time (Mac/PC)

Partly responsible for the resurgence of the point-and-click adventure genre, Telltale Games has consistently delivered quality adventure titles for several years, including such hits as the Sam & Max series, Tales of Monkey Island, and Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People.  So, when news spread that Telltale would be handling a five-episode series based on the Back to the Future license, it was difficult not to be excited, especially as a fan of the original film series.  Historically, video games have not particularly been kind to the franchise, with the laughably bad 8- and 16-bit entries from the late 80s and early 90s better left forgotten.  However, bringing both Christopher Lloyd and trilogy screenwriter Bob Gale on board, this was Telltale’s chance to finally give Back to the Future a video game that the fans deserved, and one that the franchise could be proud of.  And so, 25 years after the first film was released, the first episode of Back to the Future: The Game launched, as worthy of a game as any fan could hope for.
