Deleted TWAU Footage - possible prototype trailer?!?

Yeah, soooo, this is a thing I guess.

Comments

  • Is this um...an out-of-season April Fool's joke?

  • I.. guess it could be possible? This video was released on November 6, 2013 (after the release of Episode 1), and I've never heard "Tumbleweed" associated with Telltale.

    So, it's either a fan-made thing using models just for fun, or some sort of outsourced animation test for Telltale?
    @Poogers555, thoughts?

  • Its most likely a demo real from an animator at Telltale who goes by Tumbleweed and then edited it in this way. If I had to guess a lot of this is probably from when Wolf Among Us wasnt in the style of The Walking Dead. A lot of people seem to forget Fables was in development first.

  • To me, it looks like it could've been a prototype trailer before Harrington called for drastic changes toward the script of the game

    Yes, there were reportedly several drafts for the story and he didn't like them, he wanted them to fit in with the canon of the Fables series.

    EDIT: WILLINGHAM, I MEANT WILLINGHAM!

  • You’re thinking of Bill Willingham, not Adam Harrington. (Voice of Bigby)

  • Some parts, Cinderella and that is used in this Demo Reel too.

  • So this has basically confirmed that these were the animation studios who worked on the telltale games? Or at least, some of them.

  • No it's just the animators (Armando Lluch) demo reel. These are just some of the animation work he's done for Telltale and Visceral.

  • Ah, seems that we've both debunked one theory, and confirmed one.

    Im assuming a lot of this Cinderella stuff was before they decided to change Wolf up after Walking Dead released. I read somewhere Wolf was originally not that serious. This Cindy stuff looks like its straight out of Batman. I doubt this was the type of content they swapped out for Wolf 1 during that long wait between eps 1 and 2 as tonally Cindy doing back flips off sky scrappers doesnt fit at all, so Im assuming this is animation is from like 2011 early 2012 build of the game.

  • Since they have a finished model of her that's still in the game's files, I'm assuming she managed to make it pretty far into development and was one of the last things to be cut. They seemed to really, really want to use her. I wonder where this puts her chances of showing up in the sequel.

    So is that scaffolding and pink-jumpsuit (rough animation model) supposed to be used for TWAU? Wow, because that looks -- as you say -- Batman levels of advanced action. And this is supposed to be Cinderella?! I need some backstory on that. That's amazing (if tonally jarring for a detective noir story) they considered putting such a character inside.

  • I wish I could find where I saw this but apparently it wasnt originally that serious of a game as it was before Walking Dead, but then they got Walking Dead and started working on that, the game blew up, so they made Wolf more serious and having Cindy be like this would kill the tone of the game. It seems back when this game was just called Fables it was much more later Fables inspired than early Fables.

    I do wonder what they were planning to do with Cindy. As said she does have a model in game, but its street clothes, not a jump suit. If Cindy is added hopefully there isnt anything like this as I dont feel it meshes well with what Wolf 1's themes and tone were.

    Cinderella is a secret agent in the comics specializing in interrogation, spying and assassination. Her shoe store, The Glass Slipper, which you can actually secretly find and look at in episode 1, is just a cover for her spy work.
