Lionsgate and Telltale are partnering. Lionsgate has made a significant investment in Telltale Games, and they will be producing interactive media together. As part of the deal, Lionsgate’s CEO Jon Feltheimer will take a seat on Telltale’s board of directors. According to Telltale’s, Kevin Bruner, their first project will be something they’re calling a Super Show, which boils down to more episodic games, but cross-produced with live-action media. You have to give Bruner credit for having some lofty goals.

Our goal is to create products that have a legitimate chance of winning both a Golden Globe and a Game of the Year.

That could take the place of the EGOT. Imagine the accolades from Doritos and Mountain Dew that would come with that!

Telltale Games announced two episodic games during the Spike VGX awards this weekend. The first game, (previewed in the above video) is a collaboration with Gearbox and will take players back to the world of Vault hunting and Claptrap. One of the strongest components of Borderlands 2 was the writing, so a point & click dialogue game of the type Telltale excels at making seems to be a good fit.

The second game, announced in this very short teaser, is going to be based on the popular Game of Thrones property. It remains to be seen how much sexposition we’ll get out of a Telltale game, but I look forward to the QTE.
