Tales From the Borderlands

Telltale Games is a beloved game development studio known for story-driven splatfests. They’re best known for The Walking Dead gaming series and Tales From the Borderlands was viewed as a bit of a odd departure into comedic fare. However, the five-part series proved to be a great success in the mid-2010’s and brought a new brand of fan to the studio. Campo Santo does a fascinating deep dive into the creative development process for the series, and Telltale’s employees, to their credit, are refreshingly honest. It’s honestly an interesting view into a successful (and stressed) creative team, regardless of whether you care about the video game product that came out the other side.
