Amazon sci-fi show The Expanse is launching a Telltale adventure series, which is not surprising in 2016, before Telltale fell apart, closed, and part of it was sold.
However, Telltale never completely collapsed, and the Telltale name was adopted by the new owner, LCG Entertainment.Not everyone who was previously connected to Telltale is excited about the resurrection because Polygons reported in 2019, But at least on the surface, the new Telltale seems to continue, just like the dream of the past few years (maybe).
At The Game Awards, the studio announced a series based on The Expanse, a novel series about the war between the Earth, Martian colonizers and “Belters” and an Amazon sci-fi show. These people are in the asteroid belt. Live and work and cannot live under the gravity of the planet.
The protagonist of the series will be Kamina drummer, a serious belt, played by Karaji, who appeared in the game awards. Short trailer, Embedded on it, looks very much like what Telltale would announce in the past. I would love to know what the new incarnation of this company will produce.
As for The Expanse, its sixth and final season will begin on Amazon this Friday. The show started with SyFy and was cancelled after three seasons before being brought back by Amazon. It’s not always great, but it has cool characters and cool ideas, especially when it consistently takes a deliberate approach to the physics and physiology of life and work in space.
One thing I appreciate is the choice of the protagonist of the game: the drummer is about 10 times cooler than most others on the show.
Telltale has a website, But there is no more information about the game.
