After 10 years of episodic games, Telltale’s time in the sun has come

Telltale Games scored big with The Walking Dead, the post-apocalypse game that forced players to make tough choices about which friends to save from zombies.

It drew such an emotional response from players that it sold millions of episodes and won numerous Game of the Year awards.

Founded by former LucasArts game developers, the company made a bet early on that it could hook players with monthly episodes of its digital games. Clearly, that strategy is working.
