The Batman games and Guardian of the Galaxy will probably be able to kept on Steam if WB and Disney keep them there.

Only if they buy them out from what's left of Telltale or make some other deal. They may ultimately hold the licenses but not the assets for the game or the rights to the engine.

Right there's some work that will have to go into but it's the respected owners licenses so it should be fairly easy to do. I'm not sure about WB but I have a feeling Disney might be trying to make it happen.

I think I might get Batman 2 from GMG, but Tales From The borderlands is too expensive. Hopefully 2K can get it back up (and cheaper), as I hear it is one of the best TT games, and requires no knowledge of the "official" franchise to play & enjoy.

You should've probably mark the gif as a spoiler for The Walking Dead (Season 1). I know it is a 7 year old game, but it is still worth playing and it is best going in blind.

You know why I did not mark it as spoiler?
Because, I hasn't watched or played the game before, so I did not know its a spoiler. Only googled a "The walking dead game dead gif" and this is one of the results XD Pardon me for the unintentional spoiler tho

If you've already downloaded or got a Steam key you probably fine, since Steam will honour that. But some sites sell TellTale keys that need to be redeemed on their own site, and the link given goes nowhere. As nhahtdh points out, the corporate site still exists.

But you are aware they went bankrupt?

I'm aware they are busted, but also that their TWD IP has been sold, so the download sites might be still working, or migrated to a new domain.

I own all of these either on Steam or XBox, so at least I'm grandfathered in. Sad to see them implode like this...I like being able to play a game once in a while that is as much about storytelling with some general interactivity as much as anything else. I don't always want to go full hardcore mode.

There's a time when you want to play HL/Assassin's Creed/GoW/DOOM and there's a time when you just want a casual story, and Telltale games did that pretty well.

The exception to that mode is Sam & Max, which are all legit adventure point-and-clicks, with some tricky-ass puzzles in there.

If you don't care about having AAA graphics or voice acting, there are lots of other great story-focused games that don't demand much of the player! Night in the Woods, for instance, or Oxenfree, or VA-11 Hall-A.

I'm not so sure. Epic have basically bankrolled development.

The press release makes it sound like Epic Games is financially involved in the production of the remaining episodes, which would explain the sudden exclusivity shift mid-season.

Probably because TT as successful as they are in the genre, they fail to survive. The industry always copies the successful formula instead of the one that failed. During the time they are still afloat probably had also noticed that the subsequent titles was not as popular. Many also turn to Visual Novels. Hiring Artists to draw Anime/Hentai/Generally good pictures but not good stories(debatable, not a big VN fan) seems to yield more returns. :)

Telltale failed to survive due to bad business decisions. They were putting out too many games, paying too much for licensed IP. They expected every game to be a blockbuster like TWD, though most games only sold a fraction thereof. They also ramped up production, saturating the market. Even fans of Telltale just weren't buying as many games as they were putting out.

I agree, they even develop their own engine only for the latter management to void it to jump on Unity instead. It still leaves a bad taste how they dismissed the staffs with lies at the end. I hope they all had found new jobs and those who had harder living conditions managed to get better. Cheers~

It's only a single publisher so far, but Telltale isn't the only contributor to the Cinematic Adventure Game genre.

While I haven't played it myself, I've heard Firewatch [a walking simulator] compared to Telltale games as well, and given that Jake Rodkin and Sean Vanaman (the two creative leads for the first The Walking Dead game [but who, I believe, were not involved in later Telltale games] ) were involved, that's not entirely out of place. So for a broader interpretation of "similar", that may be a consideration as well.

Telltale games weren't on sale since the closure announcement in September. Most probably there is noone left with rights to put games on sale. Not wanting to sound rude, but compared to other removals there has been much time to get these, if you really want them (without discount though).

Ah, come on. I didn't state that. Also I asked you to not take it rude, but you now acted intentionally as if you got me wrong.

You might not have read the announcement in September directly. But it was posted here on SG and since Telltale became one of the bigger indie dev studios, the story was in all game-related media, so you surely learned about it within a week. Due to the closure it was obvious that these games get purchase disabled / removed soon. For most of the games which get removed from Steam there neither isn't an announcement by the dev nor news depicting their situation. So after removal you have to get it very fast from resellers (if it's not taken from their stores at the same time), keysellers or traders who want to earn a fortune with already removed games. Your wishlisted Walking Dead: The Final Season was removed fast due to the takeover by Skybound. If you've checked its price development, you might get the idea how difficult/expensive it is to get removed games at all. However, you can get it now at Epic Game Store.

As Dohi64 pointed out correctly, the Telltale games got a base price drop after the announcement. The two Telltales' Batman games are on your wishlist, but I'm not sure if Steam notifies about base price drops as it does with discounts. But you probably know IsThereAnyDeal.
Getting one game is better than nothing, so the question is: after all your expenses you didn't have 15 € (or the equivalent price of it in your country) left in the last nine months? You couldn't have wished to get one of the games as gift from family or friends for Christmas or something else you celebrate? Then I'm honestly very sorry for you, since you probably belong to the poorest part of this community.
Trading might have been the way to go for you. But at least your SteamTrades profile seems a bit empty to me. I hope you entered at least all SG giveaways you could.

In the other case it's just about your own priorities about spending your money. And that's totally okay. But then you obviously didn't want them as bad as other things you bought during this time, though you knew that these games won't be available forever.

I didn't buy anything recently. Everything I got recently was free. Also I meant a deep discount to at least $5. Also Epic Store is trash and the game will never be on Steam now at all which is fucked up.

Which game do you mean now? Only the Walking Dead games went there until now, because Skybound acquired them and Epic paid them some gazillions.. And I hope that Telltale will still earn some bucks for those remaining games at Steam, because it would increase the chance that the devs get their missing wages.

My suggestion: if you really want those two Batman games, I could buy Steam keys for both at Wingamestore and you contact me whenever you have the money for it (oh, and at listed price, nothing surplus).

Nobody is talking about the Wallace & Gromit games anymore, but I thought they were great. They haven't been for sale since 2014, since Telltale and Aardman couldn't agree on a continuation deal apparently.

Comment has been collapsed.

the quick answer is "it depends"

Someone owns the rights to the overall world and setting. That someone may license another person (or company) to create and sell further stories in that universe. Now's where it gets tricky, because, well, you've got the rights to the setting, the rights to the story, and the rights to the underlying technology.
Who has access to what rights really depends on the agreement - a good agreement can include eventualities for example, King Syndicate, when it licensed the Popeye IP to Fleisher Animation Studios, included a provision that the cartoons would need to be destroyed after 10 years - if no other agreement could be reached whereas a bad agreement (which is not uncommon) would have the rights lost in limbo see for example No One Lives Forever, where the rights sort of belong to three major companies, but none of them know to what extent their rights go
