Ex-Telltale Dev to Develop New Comedy Film-Noir Adventure Game.

View the KS trailer here.

Check out the Kickstarter here.

Quote:
San Rafael, CA - October 15,2018 - Independent developer Pinhead Games, run by former Telltale designer and writer Mark Darin, has announced that they are developing a new comedy adventure game for PC and Mac to release in late 2019. Mark has been a professional game designer for the last 20 years. He’s been a lead designer and writer on many popular titles including “The Walking Dead”, “Tales from the Borderlands”, “Puzzle Agent” and “Tales of Monkey Island”. He is also one of the 250+ employees that were recently laid off without warning of severance pay in the highly publicized closure of Telltale games.

Nick Bounty and the Dame with the Blue Chewed Shoe is a comedic graphic adventure game presented in a striking Film Noir style. The game is seeking funding on Kickstarter now.

Take control of the smart-ass detective as he questions suspicious suspects, scours shadowy environments for clues, and puts the pieces together to find out who dumped the body of a naked woman in a playground sandbox. Players will choose one of three unlikely sidekicks to customize their experience while gathering evidence and solving puzzles to track down the unusual killer in this bizarre yet hilarious mystery.

“At Pinhead Games, we believe in the unique way that interactive games can present compelling storytelling and puzzling gameplay into a fully gratifying experience. Nick Bounty and the Dame in the Blue Chewed Shoe aims to capture the feel of those classic Point & Click adventures with a cinematic flair and healthy dose of humor!”

“With Telltale unexpectedly shutting its doors, I wanted to find a way to continue creating those captivating and thought provoking experiences that brought me to Telltale nearly 14 years ago. Pinhead Games offers me that opportunity and I’m committed to upholding a level of excellence that fans deserve. ” said Mark Darin, founder of Pinhead Games.

Nick Bounty and the Dame with the Blue Chewed Shoe is currently running a fundraising campaign to support the production of this game. Backers can support this effort on Kickstarter. http://kck.st/2NgdrbE

Thanks, Ana. I just noticed this now and gave them a $10 pledge. Glad to help out in some small way and play a new adventure game by an ex-Telltale developer. woot

For some reason, it wouldn't let me enter my card information with Firefox, though, and I had to use Internet Explorer, which I really dislike. I'm not sure if Kickstarter is having issues with Firefox now for some reason? If anyone else has the same issue, you may try using another browser.

Hey Boomers!

First, thanks to everyone who has played and supported the Nick Bounty games over the years. These games are my passion project and your support has kept me going! I've been coming here since 2004 and this is one of the more interesting and supportive communities around. I'm an older gamer and developer and you guys make me feel at home here! No arguing or bad vibes here, just a bunch of gamers who like good puzzles and stories!

The 3rd game in the Nick Bounty series, The Dame in the Blue Chewed Shoe, is now in development and I could use your support more than ever! I learned a lot about game design in my 14 years at Telltale games, both what to do and what NOT to do to keep players engaged and entertained, and I want to bring all of that to my latest effort. I want to bring back the feel of a Classic Point & Click but with everything I’ve learned about gameplay that supports the narrative.

The game is currently seeking fundraising on Kickstarter and a lot of those funds are going to contract other Ex-Telltale devs who are still looking for work after the surprise layoffs. Please consider backing the game whether it’s in support of the TTG Devs who lost their job, supporting Indie development, or just because you think the game looks cool!

It’s been a month now since TTG laid off it’s staff and I’m still looking for employment. I don’t mean to make this personal but I just wanted to share what a scary and difficult time this is, but it’s also extremely exciting to be working on something that I truly love.

Thanks everyone!
