No more Happily Ever After
Hello friends, as many of you may know we may not see another season of TWAU after all. Honestly I'm still sitting here trying to process all this, hoping it's just a really really nasty bad dream but right now it looks like it's reality and it sucks.
I joined this forum because of this very game back in mid 2014, hard to believe more than four years have passed since all of this. I had a fantastic time with you people around here, and though many veterans of this sub may not be as present here today, I'd like to thank each and every one of you for the great time we've had talking about the game, characters, playing forum games, coming up with theories and deductions and all that good stuff.
For over three years we did our best to keep the hopes alive, and our persistence is what made Season 2 about to happen. It is not the case anymore of course, but it proves that a solid community can make a difference even though at times it looked like we were throwing rubber balls at a wall. For what it's worth, I think we succeeded in making our dedication to this game and this universe mean something more than just a couple of shitposts every week and that's something to remember.
I'm not really sure what else to say, even though I've heard about the Glassdoor reviews way back and about the toxic management, I think it's safe to say that the workforce at Telltale was made out of really dedicated and talented people who deserved a better send-off. As an amateur indie developer myself, it is really gut-wrenching to see so much talent get basically tossed out on the street in a blink of an eye. The only think that keeps a shade of hope in the back of my brain is the fact that maybe some other studio is going to pick up the IP and continue what Telltale started with this game (probably not gonna happen, but need to hope in something to keep myself from crying to death)
Most ironic thing is that I've been working on a video essay regarding TWAU, and just as things seemed to get brighter and brighter BOOM studio is getting closed... This is some really bad mojo
One last thing before I end this... rant, letter, stream of thoughts or whatever this is... I was planning to do some giveaways of TTG games in the upcoming months and kickstart a Discord server dedicated to TWAU and Fables in general. To anyone still hanging around here - seeing as forums will inevitably get closed at some point - would anyone be interested in such a thing? (yeah, I know there is a TTG discord already but I'm talking about a place to bring together fans of exclusively the comics and the TWAU)
Anyway... share your thoughts and (hopefully fond) memories of your time if you wish. I had a blast and I'm gonna miss this place a lot, especially when it was in it's hay day. HUFF AND PUFF my friends, HUFF AND PUFF.
