Telltale Games was founded in 2004 by a group of former employees of LucasArts, in the interest of developing more story-based adventure games in the style of 90s favorites “The Secret of Monkey Island” and “Sam & Max Hit the Road”. Since then they have put out several dozen highly-acclaimed titles including episodic games based on the “Back to the Future”, “The Walking Dead”, and “Game of Thrones” franchises.
Now Telltale is releasing its first Marvel series inspired by the irreverent comic book and movie property “Guardians of the Galaxy”. Today the first trailer for the “Guardians” game was released, and fans can finally get a glimpse of what to expect: more tongue in cheek space-bound fun with Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket Raccoon and of course Groot.
The first episode of “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series” will hit retailers and online stores on Tuesday, April 18th.
