GCDC: Telltale on Episodic Gaming

Gamasutra has a nice little write-up of Telltale co-founder and CEO Dan Connors’ GCDC talk on the episodic gaming biz. There’s nothing particularly revelatory there, but it’s a nice summary of what they do. And there are some interesting tidbits like this:

20 percent of players who buy a first episode next buy the whole season altogether, says Connors. Without providing specifics, he also said “most players” buy the whole season at once directly from Telltale, while “retail is the most powerful content-mover out there.”

Telltale recently released the first episode of their Strong Bad game, titled “Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People.”
