I think this is very exciting news and has huge potential to create something significant 

 

Basically Lionsgate films and Telltale games will be collaborating to create some kind of new interactive media....so a hybrid of a game and movie.

 

Similar I suppose to games like Walking Dead...but having the backing of such a talented film studio like Lionsgate only bodes well for this idea.

 

I'll be watching this space closely  :dancing:

Also John Riccitiello, former EA CEO, joined the board of directors.

 

All I care about is Telltale getting their release schedule in order. C'mon people!

That sounds really weird. At first, before I even read it I thought that they were probably going to make some of those Adventure games with Full Motion Video that Sierra did with Lost in Time and Gabriel Knight: The Beast Within and other Adventure games in the early and mid nineties, but they plan a 'Super-show'

 

“A ‘Super Show” episode combines one part of interactive playable content with one part of scripted television style content. Both pieces, when combined together, are what make an actual Super Show ‘episode.’"

 

That kind of sounds like Mass Effect 3, actually.

I am not as sure that this will improve quality of Telltale's games, at least in segments where Telltale has excelled as Lionsgate has different perspective on what sells and what makes good story, than we have accustomed to see from Telltale, but of course this means that Telltale will probably have much larger budgets for its future products.

I wonder if Quantic Dream will get a similar offer from another studio if this takes off? He did kind of pioneer this as a genre with Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy.

 

Quantic Dream is heavily tied to Sony, so I would predict that if they will ever do anything similar they will do it with Sony (Pictures Entertainment).

Yeah I agree it may initially appear to be a strange concept but imagine the potential...you could stream a movie that you could then control some of the narrative. Its sounds fun to me   :geek:

 

 

These ideas never work in reality because things like time and budget exist. The most that Defiance ever did was a few references a year later.

 

Yee of little faith !!!

 

Lionsgate has much more experience around movies than Trion  has so I expect something more than Defiance as far as the movie interaction is concerned ?

Maybe you don't know, but porn industry had already brought this kind of entertainment to the public, so this is far away from an innovative idea :D

 

 

But fun nonetheless :D

Doesn't the "super show" thing sound like what Remedy is trying to do with Quantum Break?

Someone needs to do an updated Captain Power, but more interactive. For those of you who don't know, Captain Power was an 80s sci fi live action adventure show, and the toys had sensors on them so the vehicles would take "battle damage" when hit by the lasers on tv. The toys had lasers of their own and would feedback to kids when it hit one of the bad guys on tv as well..

The area between the balls and the butt is a hotbed of terrorist activity.

It was also written by JMS of Babylon 5 fame.

 

But I don't see that being popular. It barely was at the time.

It's not a question of experience.

 

Video games are an interactive medium. Film is pre-made. I'm all for giving video games a more cinematic feel, but that's all you can do. They are two different mediums fulfilling two entirely different needs.
