Overnight/Weekend Open Thread – Stay OK in OK

Rich Anderson

Everybody please be safe out there.

After last week’s reader contest, SlyDante wanted in with one of his own. Usual disclaimers apply – he and he alone is responsible for his offer, and neither I nor Voice Media Group can be held accountable for fulfillment. That said, here he is:

This week’s prizes include the newly-introduced Humble Indie Bundle 8, the latest Humble Bundle’s line of acclaimed indie game packages with this go-around offering such hits as Hotline Miami, Awesomenauts, Little Inferno, & more, & the Humble Weekly Sale: Telltale Games, consisting of a bumper crop of Telltale’s finest graphic adventures based around your favorite characters & franchises, including Back to the Future: The Game, Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse, & this one game called The Walking Dead or something, which I think might won a Game of The Year award or two somewhere but eh, it doesn’t matter.

Since Telltale makes up a hefty chunk of the pot here, I felt it best to pay tribute to their successful resurrections or our favorite franchises…so to enter, in the comments, pitch an idea for a graphic adventure game based on one of your favorite films, TV shows, comics, etc. You can go into as little or as much detail as you like, be it simply suggesting a franchise you’d like to see get the Telltale treatment or going into full about the plot & types of gamplay & puzzles you’d like it to have. Now, there’s only one winner who can claim both bundles, but you can enter as many times as you like. But even if you don’t win, you still have until Thursday to grab the Telltale Bundle, & until June 11th to score Humble Indie Bundle 8, with a portion of the proceeds going to charity. The winner will be judged by me, & the contest ends on Sunday the 2nd, 11:59 PM PST. The winner will be announced on Monday in this thread as well around 12 noon PST, so keep an eye out for it. Also, we’ll try & create a comment in the beginning of this thread that you can reply to with all of your entries, but we won’t judge you if you comment outside of that here (for the most part).

(Oh, & one disclaimer: The Walking Dead is available for Steam only in the Telltale Bundle, & Wallace & Gromit is Windows-only here.)
