Telltale is a group of talented game makers out in San Francisco, who left LucasArts and started up their own company dedicated to making adventure games. These are not your typical shoot-em-up games, but games where you get to experience the world created by the game makers. Their first game, BONE: Out From Boneville, debuted last year. The new Bone game, The Great Cow Race, went live in March. These games are a lot of fun and really cheap ($12 each). While they are faithful to the comics, they have used some creative license as well, and the results are hilarious. Telltale plans a new game for each of the nine volumes of Bone. Here are some behind the scenes pics of the staff and the game. Next week I’ll show you some finished shots from the new game.
This is Heather Logas and Dave Grossman, co-designers on The Great Cow Race.
The group shot is Dave Grossman again (center), flanked by Dave Bogan (art director) on the left and Brendan Ferguson (another game designer) on the right, hard at work on an upcoming game.
The last shot is of one of Jon Sgro's Bone toys on top of a bunch of old LucasArts games.
These are pieces of concept art for two of the scenes in The Great Cow Race, and a wire frame model of Phoney.
If you want to know more about Telltale or about the newest Bone games, visit Telltale Games.com. The button to the left also takes you to the Telltales site (it doesn't automatically give you the game; if you want to buy the game, you have to go to the site and then hit download), so I encourage everyone to visit and look around.
