Telltale Games has revealed that the second episode of the amazing Walking Dead game will be released on Thursday of this week. We took a look at Episode One when it came out earlier this year and loved it. I, personally, can’t wait – I’ve played through Episode One and really want to play through this next installment.
Holy zombies! if you’ve been playing Telltale’s amazing Walking Dead: The Game on Mac or PC via Steam, you know what fantastic news this is for gamers waiting for it to show up on iOS. The wait is now over, with the first episode ready to download this coming Thursday, July 26, for $4.99.
The fine minds at Telltale Games have spent a ton of time tweaking and optimizing the game for a touch interface. You’ll be able to explore Robert Kirkman’s award-winning post-apocalyptic universe with characters that don’t appear in the comics or the television series. You’ll get to play Lee Everett, a man with a dangerous past, as he navigates his new, zombie-infested world, trying to care for Clementine, a young girl that he meets and takes under his wing.
The Walking Dead for iOS will be $4.99 per episode for the future installments, or save 25% off the individual episodes with the Episode 2-5 bundle for $14.99. This is the same price as the game on Steam, which should prove interesting to see if iOS gamers are as willing to pay for a quality gaming experience as those on the PC and Mac platform.
Walking Dead: The Game will run on the new iPad, the iPad 2, the iPhone 4 & 4S, and any iPod touch 4th Generation or newer. Episode 2, already out on Steam, will release for iOS soon, according to the developers.
Telltale Games sure does like to keep busy. Less than 3 months after releasing Episode One of Sam & Max: Beyond Time And Space, we’re up to Episode Four: Chariots of the Dogs.
New to iOS, Chariots of the Dogs is one of my favorite Sam & Max tales in recent times. Bosco has vanished from the face of the Earth and it’s down to Sam & Max to track him down and figure out the many other puzzles that get in their way. It’s truly one of the funniest episodes of the season. Do make sure to play earlier episodes to get all the jokes, though.
As has been the case with previous episodes, there’s a mini-game in the form of Whack da Ratz and an entertaining soundboard that lets players create new quotes from the episode.
Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space Ep 4 is out now, priced at $4.99. It’s an Universal app so owners of both iPhone and iPad can rejoice.
Telltale Games episodic point and click adventure series, Law and Order: Legacies came to a close with last week’s release of episode seven: “Resolution.” The game, which features fan-favorite cast members from various eras of both Law and Order and SVU follows the show’s format of splitting the roughly hour’s worth of gameplay in each episode between crime solving and courtroom action, with lots of Dick Wolf-esque cut scenes.
In keeping with the show’s based-on-real-events formula the “epic conclusion” opens with a businessman pushed to his death off of a New York bridge during an Occupy Wall Street protest. There’s a suicide note, lots of red herrings, and the finale ties the previous episodes together.
The first instalment was included with the initial purchase price of $2.99 with subsequent chapters available through in-app purchases of $2.99 each. Now to celebrate the conclusion the first episode is available as a free app download and the complete set of six additional chapters is available for a one-time $12.99 IAP.
If one’s been playing they won’t want to miss how it all wraps up, and if one is a fan of the TV shows but unfamiliar with the game, this is the best and most affordable time to jump into the crime solving drama. And, we’ll all have to wait and see if the franchise is popular enough to warrant a season two.
With The Walking Dead TV series’ second season coming to a close, fans may be feeling listless, sauntering around without a purpose, wondering just what brains taste like, anyway. Well, for those who can’t get enough of the franchise, the first trailer for The Walking Dead game coming from Telltale has been revealed. Showcasing original artwork for the game and providing the first glimpse of the game in motion, it shows that the brutality of the series is well-represented. The games are not based off of the TV show, but features an original story and new characters, taking place in the world of the comic book series. So, there will be thematic similarities, but this is an original story and experience.
The first episode of the game is scheduled to release initially for PC, Xbox 360, and Playstation 3 in April, with plans for other platforms announced later. Five episodes are planned in total, to be released monthly. Check out the trailer below, featuring the first glimpses of gameplay. As well, the official site has a video series on what has gone into the development of the game.
Telltale Games has announced that the last episode of the Monkey Island Tales series is now available for iPad. The final episode in their revival of the classic adventure game series, Episode 5 – Rise of the Pirate God, has players controlling Guybrush Threepwood and his friends again, as they try to take down his longtime nemesis LeChuck, who is now voodoo-powered. Oh dear, this does not look good for Guybrush Threepwood, who came down with a woeful malady in episode 4 called ‘death’ that he is apparently recovering from in this final episode. Those who haven’t checked out the series yet can check out Episode 1 – Launch of the Screaming Narwhal for the low, low price of free on iPhone and iPad. As well, the rest of the series is now on sale for $2.99, including this latest episode in the franchise. iPhone 4S owners will be glad to know that they will have Retina Display support on their device; older devices will get lesser graphics to ensure performance.

Telltale Games has just released the latest episode in the seven episode season of Law & Order: Legacies.
Episode Four, entitled Nobody’s Child, focuses on an event from New Year’s Eve 1999. The battered body of a boy is discovered in an alley and the investigation that follows unearths a case of shocking abuse along with criminal indifference in high places.
As before, the player take the roles of both investigators and district attorneys alongside the likenesses of characters such as Lennie Briscoe, Rey Curtis, Olivia Benson and Jack McCoy.
Multiple endings are offered depending on moral decisions and the seven episodes will eventually piece together to form a season-wide mystery.
Unlike other Telltale Games titles, episodes are available by purchasing the first episode for $2.99 then paying $2.99 for future episodes or $12.99 to unlock the full season. No doubt a bargain for many fans of the iconic TV show.
Episode Four is out now.
It’s been a month since Episode 2 of Jurassic Park was released. I have good news for fans of the previous two episodes. The third instalment has just hit the App Store!
Episode 3, otherwise known as The Depths, brings players one step nearer to the conclusion of the series and it’s certainly upping the ante when it comes to action.
The player will find themselves making their escape, from Isla Nublar, through dark maintenance tunnels that connect the park with plenty of carnivorous dinosaurs in their path to freedom. Worst of all, the stress is becoming too much for the survivors as they begin to turn on each other.
As has been the case with earlier episodes, iPad 2 owners can opt to use AirPlay mirroring as they play to ensure fun for everyone watching.
Jurassic Park: Episode 3 – The Depths is out now priced at $6.99.
Let us know how you’re finding the season so far.
Telltale Games, purveyors of fine point-and-click adventure games, are launching a 99-cent sale that they are describing as ‘epic’. The sale, set to run from January 19th until the 29th, includes a total of 11 games. Included in the sale is the Hector: Badge of Carnage series, that takes a quirky, grotesque, and profane look at police detective work through the eyes of the crude Hector. All three episodes in the series for iPad are on sale, and the last two episodes are on sale for iPhone/iPod touch. The first episode for iPhone was published by original developer Straandloop, which likely explains why it isn’t part of the sale.
The Puzzle Agent series is also on sale, for those who like their adventure games a little less ribald and a little more on the cerebral side, these games provide some fiendishly challenging puzzles. Both episodes are on sale for both iPhone/iPod touch and iPad. Finally, Sam and Max: The Penal Zone Episode 1 and Wallace & Gromit: The Last Resort, both for iPad, are part of this $0.99 sale until the 29th. Hit the break for all eleven apps on sale.

Telltale Games are back at it again, bringing more of their point and click goodness to the iOS. Mirroring the cinematic Jurassic Park experience already available on the PC, the iPad 2 exclusive second episode will continue the quest embarked upon in the series’ freshman effort.
“The Cavalry,” as this newest installment is christened, will actually follow two separate plotlines. In one branch Nima, Gerry and Jess will continue searching for a shortcut, pushing the trio through a never-completed roller coaster. The other side of the story will focus on a rescue team desperately in search of survivors. If nothing else, this certainly sounds like a compelling direction to resume the action.
Also, iPad 2 owners shouldn’t forget that all of the current as well as upcoming Jurassic Park episodes will take advantage of iOS’s unique AirPlay functionality when combined with an Apple TV. Why just play something on a tablet when you can experience it on the big screen, right? This should be a mission jam packed with exciting dinosaur encounters that players will not soon forget.
Telltale Games has announced their latest series based on a well-known license: Law & Order: Legacies. This episodic series will feature characters from both the classic long-running original Law & Order TV series, as well as from the still-running Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. The likenesses of Jerry Orbach, Benjamin Bratt, Sam Waterston, Mariska Hargitay, and other actors from both series will be featured in the upcoming episodes. Players will act in both investigator and prosecutor roles, making decisions along the way that will affect the outcomes of cases. The games will debut on iOS first, making their appearance as universal apps starting this month, with 2 ‘cases’ set to release. 5 more cases will be released in the next few months, along with PC and Mac versions of the games. Telltale Games has released a behind-the-scenes video discussing the storyline of the series and how they’re bringing the characters from across the franchise together.
Exciting times dinosaur fans! Jurassic Park has hit iPad 2s! Not literally obviously as no one would like a T-Rex to crush their beloved gadget. No, I’m talking about Jurassic Park: The Game, hotly anticipated since Telltale Games announced it earlier in the year.
Maximizing the processing power of the iPad 2, Jurassic Park: The Game promises breath-taking cinematic scenes and some darn impressive graphics. Players will be taken back to Isla Nublar during the events of the first Jurassic Park film and be able to interact with the storyline in a brand new way. While many locations will be familiar to fans, there will also be plenty of new areas to explore as we discussed earlier this week.
Jurassic Park: The Game also comes with AirPlay functionality so that players can see the action on their Apple TVs for even more impressive visuals.
Jurassic Park: The Game is out now for the iPad 2 priced at $6.99.
In just a few short days, Telltale Games’ second “adventure game that’s practically a sequel for the movie it’s based on” will be unleashed. On less mobile devices, anyway. The iPad 2 version is set to follow soon after the November 15th release date, but nothing specific has been stated as of yet. That’s okay though, because we have these new morsels of information to tide us over.
Jurassic Park: The Game takes us back to Isla Nublar shortly after the events of the first film, following a new cast of characters simply trying to escape the island with their lives intact. However, it’s not just about the new faces: this time around we’re going to be seeing more of the park itself. Sure there will be familiar areas (i.e. Dennis Nedry’s “ditched” vehicle), but we’ve also learned of some new locations players will get to explore that weren’t covered in the movie.
Locations such as the still under-construction Bone Shaker Roller Coaster, the Geothermal Power Plant, Dr. Laura Sorkin’s Field Lab used for observational studies (as well as some unsanctioned and dangerous experiments, the North Docks which are a stone’s throw away from the iconic Visitor’s Center, and finally the Marine Facility (video featured below), which I’m personally terrified to experience. Wait until the end of the clip to see what I mean.
iPad 2 owners, keep an eye on that App Store after the 15th. There might not be an official release date for the iOS version, but I’d imagine it might only be a week or two longer. Heck, since the 15th is a Tuesday it’s also not out of the question to consider it might be available on the 17th (Thursday). So… Anyone have an iPad 2 they don’t want anymore..?
Ahoy, ye mateys! Telltale Games’ revival of the classic Monkey Island adventure game series, Monkey Island Tales HD, is now available on iPad. Featuring legendary protagonist Guybrush Threepwood, these games continue the kind of offbeat humor that the original games were known for. Developed in conjunction with LucasArts, and designed to stay true to the Monkey Island aesthetic, Telltale’s games put the player in control of Guybrush, trying to stop the undead pirate and long-time nemesis LeChuck, as well as trying to cure a voodoo curse he accidentally unleashed upon the Caribbean while trying to stop LeChuck. Whoops.
Now, when I say the series is now available on the iPad, I don’t just mean one entry, with more entries to come later; I mean the whole series is now available on iPad! Starting today, parts one through five are all available for purchase on the iPad for $6.99 each. This means that players can check out the series at their own pace, try out the series and quit playing if they get bored, or pick up from a specific episode if they’ve played other episodes before.
But what about people who haven’t played the Monkey Island Tales games at all? Like people who are familiar with the classic games that Tim Schafer had a hand in, but are skeptical about the new series’ faithfulness? Or what about the people who need an introduction to the series that’s more than just what a short lite version would provide? Well, Telltale Games has decided to give these people a great deal, as episode one is available for free! That’s right, the whole first episode is available for free, no gimmicks. This will only be free through July 22nd, before it goes back up to normal price, so act quickly, or else there won’t even be a lousy t-shirt to be had!

Puzzle Agent was a bit of a hit with us last year even though it was a little too short. Fans need not fear though as the next instalment, cunningly titled Puzzle Agent 2, is set to be released on June 30.
Puzzle Agent 2 sets out to build upon its older brother’s success by offering more rewarding puzzles based on the feedback from fans. The game will pick up after FBI Agent Nelson Tethers ‘solved’ the Scoggins Eraser Factory case — things get much murkier. Tethers has to go rogue and ventures back to the town of Scoggins, Minnesota in order to solve the biggest case of his career so far. Hopefully this will also mean a longer experience!
To celebrate the impending release of Puzzle Agent 2, the original title is on sale with the iPad version priced at $2.99 and the iPhone version priced at $0.99 until June 14.
Hopefully that’ll keep many puzzle fans busy until June 30 when Puzzle Agent 2 hits the App Store.
Check out the video and screenshot gallery below to whet the appetite ready for the game.

Anyone who has watched cable television pretty much ever should be very familiar with reruns of the infamous Law and Order and the iconic “doink, doink” sound effect. When the original program was cancelled last fall, fans were greatly disappointed to learn that they would not get the chance to see season twenty-one of its marathon television run. For this very reason it came as no shock that soon thereafter the team at Law and Order decided to follow in the footsteps of CSI and transplant the franchise to a sunnier locale – in this case, Los Angeles.
So it should also come as no surprise that NBCUniversal is very pleased to announce that they are partnering with episodic gaming juggernaut Telltale Games to bring the drama of the courtroom to the App Store very soon.
“With the ‘Law & Order: LA’ games, Telltale will build from the experience and expertise cultivated through numerous seasons of police and crime procedural games over the years. The ‘Law & Order: LA’ games will take the crime solving focus to interrogation and criminal investigations, with a heavy dose of courtroom drama on each case. Telltale will also continue to advance its unique approach to cinematic presentation and storytelling as well as dialog and character interactions.”
The crime drama genre should really come as nothing new to Telltale, especially considering that they have already released a couple of licensed CSI based games. Really though, isn’t this kind of a betrayal of the CBS network’s most popular series? I am sure the lawyers had a good time trying to untangle that legal knot, but rest assured that we will be seeing the “doink, doink” making its return very soon. We will keep you on any new details in regards to this agreement as they become available.

There just isn’t enough humor in law enforcement these days. Everyone is too focused on being the next Jack Bauer, instead of the next Carl Winslow. Luckily Telltale Games haven’t forgotten what it was like when the badges could both uphold the law and tickle your funny bone all at the same time.
In their upcoming iPad release Hector: Badge of Carnage, players get to know a hard talking, yet lovably bumbling British cop by the name of Hector. Lets just say that when you have the moniker of, “the fat arse of the law,” you can bet that some hilarity is bound to ensue.
The first installment in this episodic series, entitled We Negotiate with Terrorists, will pit Hector against the vile forces of terrorism, as they target the already crime infested city of Clapper’s Wreake. How will he live up to the pressure? Only God knows, but be sure to download the app when it debuts on April 27th, so you can know as well.
We will leave you with a brief trailer showing you what Hector has in store for us all, later this week.
