Exciting news for fans of the adventure game genre: it’s a Telltale Games publisher weekend over at Steam!
This means big savings on all of Telltale’s games, and a particularly large saving on their publisher pack containing all of their games, except for their newest title, Minecraft: Story Mode. This newest title looks pretty great, by the way. Here is a trailer, just to whet your appetite:
As for the big bundle, there is a lot of wonderful, story-driven content to be had.
This bundle includes:
- Back to the Future: The Game
- Bone: Out From Boneville
- Bone: The Great Cow Race
- Game of Thrones – A Telltale Games Series
- Hectore: Badge of Carnage – Full Series
- Jurassic Park: The Game
- Law & Order: Legacies
- Poker Night at the Inventory
- Poker Night 2
- Puzzle Agent
- Puzzle Agent 2
- Sam and Max: Season 1
- Sam and Max: Season 2
- Sam and Max: The Devil’s Playhouse
- Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People
- Tales from the Borderlands
- Tales of Monkey Island Complete Pack
- Telltale Texas Hold ‘Em
- The Walking Dead
- The Walking Dead: Season 2
- The Wolf Among Us
Of particular interest to me are the Tales from the Borderlands, The Wolf Among us and the Sam and Max offerings. I’d say Monkey Island too, but I already have those!
Telltale are actually a really exciting company and nobody else is really doing the same thing that they do in publishing episodic adventure games – or any adventure games at all. It’s not surprising that the company was founded by veterans of Lucasarts, the company that led the industry on adventure games for years before they switched to just churning out Star Wars games. It’s been amazing over the past decade to watch the quality of their output evolve and improve to the point where they are not producing masterpieces like The Wolf Among Us. The quality of the licenses they have secured is also fantastic, allowing them the opportunity to play in many other creators’ worlds.
So, yeah, if you’re interested, there is 10% off Minecraft: Story Mode and 66-75% off everything else. You can click here to visit the Steam store page for the weekend deal.
