The good folks at Telltale Games, who have almost single-handedly revived the adventure genre with a series of successful episodic releases, most recently Back to the Future: The Game, have announced a bunch of new and very interesting licenses.
They'll be doing adventure games based on two very successful graphic novel series -- The Walking Dead, with the full participation of creator Robert Kirkman, and the DC Comics/Vertigo updated-fairy-tale series Fables created by Bill Willingham.
And here's one I didn't expect -- they're doing a new King's Quest game. I look forward to seeing Roberta Williams' venerable Kingdom of Daventry enlivened by the Telltale approach to story and humor. (I've recently been playing King's Quest VII, which feels like a Lucasarts game in many respects, so I'm pretty sure it can work.)
