During tonight’s “The Game Awards”, Telltale Games (The Walking Dead, Batman The Telltale Series) revealed their next point and click adventure with Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series.
The trailer was short and showed no gameplay. It had Peter Quill’s walkman floating through space playing “Dancing in the Moonlight” on a tape marked “Rad Mix”, before cutting away to the title and showing that it will be a “five-part episodic series”. As per usual norm from Telltale, we should expect the game to be on nearly all current systems, PC, and mobile platforms in 2017.
Within moments of reveal, we received an official press release from Telltale, detailing to same info from the trailer, plus a statement from Kevin Bruner, CEO and Founder of Telltale Games:
“The energizing blend of humor, emotion, teamwork, and full-on sci-fi action-adventure of the Guardians provides an enormously satisfying space to explore through Telltale’s unique style of interactive storytelling,” said Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games. “In Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, players will take on multiple roles within the ragtag band of heroes, and take the pilot’s seat in directing their escapades around the universe. We are always honored to be working with the best creative partners and storytellers in entertainment, and working with Marvel on this series leaves us excited to share what we’ve been developing when it premieres in 2017.”
“With story at the core of everything that Marvel creates, who better to team with than master storytellers Telltale Games,” said Jay Ong, Senior Vice President, Games & Innovation, Marvel Entertainment. “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series fully showcases Marvel and Telltale’s rich legacy of storytelling, and fans will find themselves immersed in an original, character-driven narrative. As part of our strategy to establish a new standard for Marvel games, this is certainly among the great titles to come.”
So, on a side note… If the tape deck is floating around in space, does that mean Starlord loses it during the story? That’s emotional on its own.
Here’s the short teaser trailer!
