Telltale Games being revived
#1
https://www.polygon.com/2019/8/28/208358...ertainment

Telltale Games, which shut down last year, is being revived after its assets were purchased by a company called LCG Entertainment. The new company will sell some of Telltale’s back catalog and will work on new games based on a few Telltale-associated properties, as well as new licenses.

The new Telltale is headed up by Jamie Ottilie and Brian Waddle. Ottilie said that some workers from the original Telltale Games will be offered freelance roles, with full-time positions possible in the future.

Ottilie has spent much of his career in mobile games, most recently as founder and CEO of Galaxy Pest Control, which is best known for licensed games based on Duck Dynasty and Power Rangers. Waddle’s previous experience includes running sales and marketing for the Havok game engine. Neither worked at Telltale Games prior to its shuttering in 2018.



Good luck to them - although, I'm not sure what their prospects are, given that neither of these people worked at the original company. Does it mean they're less likely to repeat the old company's mistakes, or does it mean they lack company-specific experience which would have been helpful?

I see two things wrong with this:
1) Cancer riddle "micro" transactions mobile games
2) Telltale died partly because of their heavy use of license games, and yet that is his background .

The "Duck Dynasty" game that is referenced here isn't even the famously (bad) one that is talked about. The only two games in its library that might be known is a Q*bert game and a mobile version of Cabela’s Big Game Hunter

I found their Game of Thrones game pretty cool but it’s the only one I played.
