The Telltale Games factory has added one more property to its lengthy episodic games portfolio, NBC crime procedural Law & Order: Los Angeles. With Back to the Future, Jurassic Park, The Walking Dead and many, many more episodic series on its plate, why Law & Order?
Well... "Law & Order: LA fits very well with the style of episodic entertainment experiences Telltale has been building since our very first days," said Telltale co-founder and CEO Dan Connors in a release. "The talents and skills that we've been building at Telltale are ideally suited for the structure and storytelling approach of televised procedurals like ‘Law & Order.'"
A fairly convincing argument, Mr. Connors!
Law & Order: Los Angeles—the video game(s)— will "take the crime solving focus to interrogation and criminal investigations, with a heavy dose of courtroom drama on each case," according to the announcement.
Like many of the episodic series Telltale are known for, future Law & Order LA games will come to the PC, Mac, unspecified consoles and mobile platforms. The first Law & Order games to feature the virtual likenesses of Alfred Molina, Skeet Ulrich and Terrence Howard will arrive sometime in 2011.
