EDIT: This doesn't come close to fixing the mess Telltale left behind and tons of employees will continue to struggle, but at least some laid off devs may be offered a few months of employment and fans may see the season pass they purchased and the story they've been invested in fulfilled. Show your support on Patreon.com/YongYea or PayPal.me/YongYea! It's completely optional, but even $1 a month contribution will go a long way. Also, follow me on Twitter.com/YongYea for the latest updates.

+Rehtael Per https://www.shrm.org/resourcesandtools/tools-and-samples/hr-qa/pages/californiawarnnotices.aspx: "California's Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act expands on the requirements of the federal WARN Act and provides protection to employees, their families and communities by requiring employers to give affected employees and other state and local representatives notice 60 days in advance of a plant closing or mass layoff. Employers covered under California WARN Act are those with 75 or more full-time or part-time employees. As under federal WARN, employees must have been employed for at least six of the 12 months preceding the date of required notice to be counted. A plant closing, layoff or relocation of 50 or more employees within a 30-day period, regardless of percentage of workforce, requires notice. Relocation is defined as a move to a different location more than 100 miles away" That's strike 1, 2 *AND* 3 for TTG so I hope they're ready to pay up.

+Bryan Runyan to my understanding, and I'm not a lawyer especially not in California, so don't take this as guaranteed truth, but to my understanding, it acts as a loophole that circumvents WARN.

I hope they save The Wolf Among Us season 2 as well. It would such a shame if they leave the story in that awesome cliffhanger.
SeventyFive (13 days ago)
+Bryan Runyan but obviously the chance of getting a bailout funding was very reasonable, since they did just get such funding. You can't use hindsight to say that they should've done something a year ago, they correctly believed that they could get funding if they'll crunch it, timing was off by a few weeks. I still believe we need to see any ill intent, before we can say that mgmt acted wrong.

I'm not sure that the general public understands that an unhealthy number of people work as contractors for companies. Contractors are not employees. Employees are entitled to unemployment and other benefits, potentially but may not include severance pay. Contractors can be terminated at anytime for any reason and are not entitled to severance pay. In fact, i've never heard of contractors getting severance pay. According to the published reports, most folks at TellTale were contractors which means that whatever compensation that they earned was written in their contracts. As someone who works with a lot of contractors, the contractors make more than me, a lot more, because the company does not pay them benefits. It's the trade off. Contractors make more, have less security, less benefits. Employees make less, have equally less security, but more benefits. Such is life when working for a company. So remember, if you want out of this, step 1 - underpants, step 3 - profit.

I want the game to be finished but I’d rather let the original workers being paid, if the workers and game and in turn players Benefit, I’ll be happy, then again members not working on the walking dead that got laid off won’t get paid, and that leaves a sour taste in my mouth. Get everyone paid first.
I still don’t understand why they shutdown to begin with. 😥

For all the people struggling to understand basic concepts: to pay employees, a company needs money. To make money, company has to have a product to sell. THIS ISN'T MAKE GAME/PAY SEVERANCE they need one to do the other

Maybe some other company should buy Telltale, the owner of the company can then distribute that money to it's employees and all telltale rights belong to Sky bound or whoever other company. Then whatever sales they make off season 4 should be distributed fairly after that. That should work, but if only Telltale would agree to that.

Never got into this series but when I seen the thumbnail, my eyes lit up. I've been following the collapse of the company but I'm excited that fans who love this will be able to get another game to complete the series. Pretty cool.
Mi Ke (10 days ago)
Today, for the first time in my life, I played a telltale game, that I got for free on GOG.com. Tales of Borderlands. Playing half an hour it made me stop the game, finding it very lacking in the story department, telling me in Fianas Story about the overall scam, removing the need to play another minute of the game as Rhys. The only need it awakened in me was to play the superior borderlands 2 game again. So I stopped playing this game and played borderlands 2 again. I am very glad I did not pay money for this game. Very glad. Maybe this kind of games were not made for me. I prefer RPG's and shooters with a story. But I know know, why they went bankrupt. And it's not a great loss for gaming at all.

"Work with the members of the original Telltale team" In other words they'll email the developers and hound them to provide input on a project they won't be paid for.

Tbh people saying that “Hopefully skybound uses the money made on the game to pay the employees” newsflash for people who don’t understand money... skybound bought the rights to TWD final season to finish it for the players. They have no obligation to those employees. They paid for the rights to finish the game. End of story.

What if after all this the ending to the game isn’t even good?
Blackman Whitesuit (11 days ago)
When choosing between keeping TWD alive or Minecraft alive, Telltale chose Minecraft. If that's not telling of how far Telltale has fallen, I don't know what is. Good the TWD comic guys stepped in to keep everyone's preferred series alive.

henrymac77 (11 days ago)
I'm happy for the people that bought the game and will now not get ripped off, but if a series can't sell enough to continue, I don't really see how outside intervention does anything to help, it really only helps the people who were willing to pay for it and protects the brand. by this point, I'm convinced that everything Telltale was doing wrong is the reason the game didn't sell, I hated what they did to Batman... generally I am a reflex buyer for anything related to the franchise... but after the way they treated Bruce's parents, and all the other political narratives they shoved into the game, I had decided I would not buy another title from them.
Jeffrey Farmer (11 days ago)
The people who should pay greatly is Kevin Bruner. He’s a trash person and basically single handedly destroyed telltale. He sold some of his stock off and later sued telltale for millions basically because he wasn’t getting his way. Even ran off some of the greatest people there who had been there since the beginning because of how toxic he was to the other who worked there. So yeah if anyone gets stuffed it should certainly be Kevin Bruner.

TheBrownTown007 (12 days ago)
I absolutely loved Oxenfree, that game was very Telltale like, so I'm sure Skybound will make sure we get a good ending. It's obviously still a massive shame Telltale has screwed so many staff members, I'm really hoping they find work. Who knows, Skybound doesn't do much in terms of the gaming side of things so maybe they'll try and hire more of the old staff and continue on with a FEW (not all) of the more successful Telltale games (I know it's a long shot, mostly just wishful thinking here).

To be honest, I just wish the best to those folks. Telltale put them through an awful situation, and they deserved better than the shitty upper "management" they had to deal with. I'm not a big fan of these games, but I wouldn't put the game before the livelihood of the people behind it, regardless of how enthusiastic I may be about it.

I am not sure if you could see anything as positive at all. I truly think that you see the absolute darkness in everything. I like how you update us on gaming news, yet your relentless negativity is tiresome and I am not sure I want to continue to listen. I am not saying this to get you to change or even with the thought that you will read this. I did not see this trend in the first few videos I watched when I first found your channel and I am surprised to see that this seems to be who you are.
