Last month, Telltale Games released Bone: The Great Cow Race, which is the second game in the Bone series. The game is getting great press from people likening it to old Sierra and LucasArts games (which isn’t a huge surprise since Telltale is mostly made up of former LucasArts employees). I think anyone with some Sierra nostalgia will probably enjoy this game. More info is available on Telltale’s site, and there’s a demo so you can try before you buy. (The full version is available as a download for only $12.99… remember when we used to pay $60 a pop for boxed Sierra games?!) The team is also working on episodic Sam & Max adventure games, which will be released later this year.
I started working for Telltale in April. It’s amazing how similar this team seems to be to the Sierra we loved in the 80s — a small company full of hardworking people who really care about making quality adventure games. I’m having a great time.
I hope some SierraGamers members will visit the site and take a look at The Great Cow Race, and also say hi on the forum if you feel like it. If you’re nostalgic for the old Sierra days, I you’ll be pleasantly surprised by what Telltale’s doing. -Emily
