07/22/2016 - Lovely Planet Arcade Launches Today on Steam
Dangerously Colorful FPS, Lovely Planet Arcade, Launches Today

July 22, 2016 - Why are shooters so mired in doom and gloom? Why not sunshine, rainbows, and jazzy soundtracks? Lovely Planet Arcade dares to be colorful, but lurking beneath that cheery facade is a shooter as hard as they come.

Watch the trailer here:

The sequel to 2014's speedrunning FPS, Lovely Planet Arcade trades in the jump-boots for brand new adventure packed with impossible tests of skill and patience. Shoot your way through over 100 levels, uncover the mysteries of the Arcade, and evade the constant deluge of enemy fire.

Craft intricate combos to unfold the complex puzzle of flying projectiles and moving targets into a graceful sequence of well-timed shots and jumps. Enjoy shooting baddies, jumping over obstacles and teleporting around bullets while trading with milliseconds.

Lovely Planet Arcade is available today on Steam for PC (Win/Mac/Linux).

07/21/2016 - Telltale Reveals Walking Dead Season 3
More of 'The Walking Dead' Third Season from Telltale Revealed During San Diego Comic Con

New Season in Critically-Acclaimed Series Premieres This Fall
Fellow Survivors,

In celebration of SDCC this week, Telltale joined our friends at Skybound Entertainment live on stage to discuss a few more details on our upcoming season of  The Walking Dead.

Eagle-eyed fans will recognize that the poster revealed today is an homage to the original poster for  The Walking Dead when the concept was first shown at SDCC in 2011. In contrast to the original, Clem is no longer being protected, and stands shoulder to shoulder with mysterious newcomer Javier. We'll be sharing some details later this summer on how you may be able to get your hands on a special limited-edition run of this poster.

The Walking Dead's Creative Director Dennis Lenart from Telltale was joined by Melissa Hutchison (voice of Clementine) to share a few more details about the upcoming season, and tried their best not to spoil the story that's yet to come.

What they  could share was your first new look at the season since it was 
revealed at E3 last month. In this first shot, you'll see Javier and Clementine making their way through a walker-infested slaughterhouse. Remember, you'll be playing as both characters, although you may not be playing each character within the same frame of time... 

Another unique aspect of this third season is that while it absolutely continues the story of the previous two seasons, it also serves as a new entry point for fans who've yet to be caught up to speed. Players starting with this third season will be introduced to young survivor AJ, who fans will recognize as the son of Rebecca from Season Two - and we can confirm that he will be making an appearance in this season as well. So players who are new to the series will have a chance to learn more about Clementine's backstory, while at the same time, those who  have played previous seasons will have a story that's uniquely tailored to the diverging paths they've taken in the past. 

Lenart also discussed the importance of playing as Javier, and how the team was able to create a character without any prior relationship with Clementine. This will provide an interesting opportunity for players to meet a character they may have helped shape. They'll also have a chance to play as a survivor fresh to the series, who is currently struggling to keep his family together in the face of the undead apocalypse. 

Stay tuned for more news as it happens on this upcoming third season, as we gear up towards the premiere coming later this fall!
