Notable titles & series by Telltale include:

Episodic Releases

Many of the games that have been developed by Telltale are released episodically. Several episodes, released together in a season, are released periodically through a certain timeframe, often concluding around half a year or so after the initial release.

Sometimes, new seasons of a game also come out, such as The Walking Dead.

Style

Telltale, starting with the Walking Dead, has adopted a choice based style rather than a complete point and click adventure game. All of their titles following the Walking Dead Season One have used this system, including Minecraft: Story Mode.

Telltale Tool

All of their games (including Minecraft: Story Mode) are made using the in-house Telltale Tool engine, which uses the Lua scripting language and is multiplatform compatible.
