Chuck Jordan departs Telltale

Chuck Jordan has put up a new blog revealing that Friday was his last day working for Telltale Games. He won’t be seeing the back of those guys, he hopes, just as a regular full-timer. Chuck states it’s “been pretty clear for a while that I wasn’t going to be content unless I could get out and try to do my own thing” and that he needs “to start trying out ideas and attempting to make something more experimental than even a smaller studio like Telltale could practically take on”.

Chuck is known to us in the Sam & Max world as the the writer on Abe Lincoln Must Die!, Reality 2.0, Bright Side of the Moon, lead writer and co-designer for season two and writer and designer of The Penal Zone and the upcoming The City That Dares Not Sleep. An exhaustive dog-and-rabbit resume, I’m sure you’ll agree. All the best wishes to Chuck in his future. I look forward to seeing what he cooks up next.

The Unweekly Roundup

At time of writing, it’s fifteen days until The Penal Zone will be smashing into your PC, Mac and PlayStation. Excited? Voice your opinion in the poll to the right. But quit looking into the future, we’re here to look back and see what happened in the past.

» Telltale hosted an invite-only event at GDC to celebrate the announcement of their new Sam & Max season. But for those not so lucky, Gametrailers has come to the rescue and published a video showing off some… best bits?

» Don’t want a free DVD with your games on at the end of the season? Don’t want to choose what free Telltale episode you want? Don’t panic, because you can now pre-order The Devil’s Playhouse on Steam for £24.99 (with Night of the Raving Dead free).

» Chuck Jordan, designer and writer for the new season, appeared on Gamespot’s video show Today on the Spot to talk through some of the introduction of the game. There’s no new content if you’ve been keeping track of everything else, but it’s an interesting watch nonetheless.
