Free Play Ep. 25 | A Sad Telltale

SHOW NOTES

In 2012, Telltale’s The Walking Dead: Season 1 received several “game of the year” awards as well and single-handedly brought back a genre of video game that lay dormant for almost 30 years.

So, what went wrong? How could a company, doing so many things right, end so abruptly? That’s what we want to talk about this week on the Free Play Podcast.
