Guess how much time TFP spends on consoles updates thereby slowing A17 - NONE!

 

And with a company going out of business and the whole console port being totally up in the air now...that none of their resources are being used or stressed in any way....everyone is just plugging along ignoring it..because none of their resources were used when first porting to console right.....excellent business mind!!!

Yep. It is. Until Telltale stuff is finalized there is literally nothing they CAN do about it. Therefore the best thing they can do is keep working on what is in front of them.

 

Anything else you have no clue about you would like to discuss?

It's not a matter of choosing to ignore it or not. I'm not a law expert, but TFP gave the rights to Telltale to handle the console port. Telltale has taken a hit but the company itself is not disappearing, so I doubt TFP can do anything about the port even if they did want to pour resources into it. So indeed, none of TFP's resources for A17 are being used or stressed because of the whole console thing affair.

As far as I understand, the owners are not programmers. Joel is an artist. And from what we hear, currently no matter how much art gets done, there's a lot of programming bugs left to squash. So even if the owners were investing time into some sort of damage control (which I doubt, this is not an AAA company that has to care about its image like that), it shouldn't be delaying things.

Hello and good evening to everyone! I am sorry to have been away for some time, have that whole LIFE bit to deal with. How have things been going here? Anyone want to catch me up on the last couple of weeks? I guess apart from the usual "Why isn't this released yet?" to and fro. I have missed everyone! Hope you are having a wonderful night! :rapture:

Welcome back, just the usual stuff plus various conspiracy theories over the effect of the closure of Telltale. Nothing too exciting lol.

Oh yeah, really? That sucks about telltale. Personally I've never been a fan of super linear games and most of their stuff looked more like an interactive novel. Which is all great I guess, I just prefer a little more free roaming, sandbox in the games I play. Otherwise I tend to read books for that sort of thing. But several of my friends liked the work they did.

 

Also, I guess, not playing much on a console, well...fortunately I am not as devastated by this news as I could be. I will be thankful for small boons where I can find them.

What about Roland or the Joelercoaster? Any news from them in the past couple of days? Have picket lines and unreasonable people drug them off into the desert yet or are their defenses holding?

 

Few Twitter pics from MM, Roland soldiers on as always ;) oh and he posted some amusing commentary and footage of a flickering light :)

A17 breaks world records for longest ever patch length the game is a zombie and is walking around dead in a circle lol.

 

Meh. You won't get to my age if you cant shake off the punches life will give you. And as life punches go, believe me, this is truly a love tap.

 

TFP wil not dish out crap they worked a year for. That's how they roll.

So you think the devs are not working on A17 code and instead doing legal work on console licensing? Lol

 

They're not mutually exclusive.

 

Do I think TFP are working on A17? Yes.

 

Do I think TFP have been in communication with TellTale to find out what's happening? Yes.

 

Do I think TFP have been pursuing other avenues to ensure the continuation of the console version? Yes.
