Skybound Games Finishing The Walking Dead’s Final Episodes

Published

Skybound Games

Skybound Games is taking over development for the remainder of Telltale’s The Walking Dead series.

Skybound’s announcement came via Twitter where it stated that it hopes to “wrap up Clem’s story right.”

For those unfamiliar with Skybound’s history, the studio is owned by Walking Dead co-creator, Robert Kirkman. The developer has experience with titles like The Long Dark, but also created a number of Walking Dead board games.

News of Telltale’s demise came at an inopportune time to say the least, as the studio was only two episodes in to The Walking Dead’s final season. After fan outcry, the studio stated that it would look into alternative options to ensure its flagship franchise would see a definitive end.

Now that the final three episodes are in the hands of a studio familiar with the license, a light is finally at the end of the tunnel.

For more on how Skybound will handle the series’s finale, keep up with OnlySP on FacebookTwitter, and YouTube.

Sci-Fi Adventure Tether Back in Development, Demo Released

Published

Tether

Freesphere Entertainment has announced that Tether is back in active development, almost a year after it was put on hold.

Alongside the announcement, the team has finally released the prototype version of the previous incarnation of the project for free on itch.io. According to the announcement, the decision to release the demo came because “it seemed silly to have years of hard work sat there for people who worked on it to not get any recognition.”

The post also suggests that Freesphere has gone back to the drawing board for the project, saying that it is seeking to reduce the scope of the story and hinting at a “new direction.”

The demo is a long time coming, as creative director Mark Gregory first told OnlySP late last year that it would be made available as part of a larger interview discussing some of the problems and struggles faced by the team members, which included underfunding, a lack of publisher interest, and personal burnout.

For anyone unfamiliar with Tether, the sci-fi adventure promises to tell the story of a mother trapped aboard a space station while on a mission to prevent environmental collapse. While the premise raises echoes of the ‘walking simulator’ format, the game was quite ambitious, featuring time manipulation mechanics, a reactive AI enemy similar to Alien: Isolation‘s xenomorph, and immersive sim elements. How much of that will be retained in the new version remains to be seen.

OnlySP’s Amy Davidson has already pledged to trial the demo as a future entry in the Friday Freebies Club, which this week will examine \SPEK.TAKL\, so watch out for that.
