TomorrowThursday I’m headed down to the San Diego Comic Con for what is likely to be another four days of me wandering around completely bewildered.
In case I’ve managed to accumulate any stalkers, I’m going to be at a panel with some other Telltale folks (and Steve Purcell!) on Saturday morning talking about Sam & Max, Strong Bad, and the mysterious unannounced Third License of Mystery:
11:30-12:30 Sam & Max, Strong Bad, and the Secrets Behind Turning Comics into Games— Sam & Max may have their roots in indy comics, but the crime-fighting duo is right at home starring in a successful series of episodic games. The cast of the popular Homestarrunner.com web cartoons are following suit this summer in Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People. Why do comics make for such great games? Telltale designers Mark Darin, Chuck Jordan, and Mike Stemmle, artist Mai Nguyen, and Sam & Max creator Steve Purcell will tell you all about the fun (and work) of bringing comics to life. Plus, get a first look at a third, completely new episodic game series! Room 4
(Which means I’ve got to miss the Hellboy panel, dammit!)
If anybody’s down there and wants to hang out, let me know. The convention gets overwhelming quickly.
