https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=08Y2dxkMYIw Today is a big, planetary sized day. Tales from the Borderlands Episode 5 "The Vault of the Traveler" is now available for download. Yes, this is the finale of all finales. Episode 5 marks the end of a two year long adventure to create what people are now calling "Telltale Games's best series" and the entire studio couldn't be more thrilled. I had the privilege of working on TftB between the very tail end of Episode 3, which was my first writing assignment at Telltale, up through Episode 5. At each turn, this series proved to be one of the most inventive interactive stories ever told with an amazingly diverse cast of characters. It's funny, it's strange, and it's always entertaining. From the planet of Pandora to the hallways of Helios, you will fall in love with every aspect of this story's world.
The Episode 5 reviews are starting to come in this morning and so far the reception has been overwhelmingly positive. 9/10 and 10/10 all around. Even the writing team (Pierre Shorette, Anthony Burch, and I) got mentioned in Entertainment Weekly! Everyone at Telltale Games should be incredibly proud of their achievement and deserve the ultimate bro-fist for all their tireless work.
If you haven't played Tales from the Borderlands yet... you now have plans for this evening.
