Telltale Games’ newest project is based on non other than one of the biggest superheroes in the world, Batman. If you’re unaware of Telltale Games, they are a game company focused on delivering games with a choice based narrative story. They are episodic adventures that play out similar to a TV show (if they we two plus hours long), but in these episodes you are given a series of options throughout that help decide how the story will unfold. Actions may be a simple multiple choice on what to say in a conversation or being given a huge ultimatum on two BIG choices that will alter where the rest of the story will go.
This month marks the premiere of Episode 1 of Telltale’s Batman series titled Realm Of Shadows. Accurately named, which we will get into later on. This is the first episode in a series of five which will be released either monthly or bi-monthly (pretty much whenever they’re ready). That’s a popular issue some people have with this format. The wait. If you tend to be impatient it may be a lot better to start this series after all five episodes have completed. Others out there play them as they’re released and get excited over speculation and mysteries that were given with each episode’s cliffhanger. As a comic book/superhero fanboy like many of you I’d like to discuss the great things this first episode had to offer and why I can’t wait for the future episodes. If you haven’t seen it already, check out the premiere trailer here.
