Title: Telltale Games are shutting down

Not SCI related, but Carl Muckenhoupt ended up with Telltale in case you missed it. His SCI Decoder was so very influential back in 1999 when I got started on SCI. And now they're closing.

Not too broken up about Telltale closing to be honest. They kept straying farther and farther from what I consider fulfilling gameplay (let alone puzzle design). But I of course feel for all those employees out of a job. May they find (much) greener pastures and opportunities.

I had no idea the creator of SCI Decoder was working there. Always wondered what happened to him.

Carl Muckenhoupt was a big name for me as well. He created one of the first tools and in doing so attracted a lot of people with a similar interest in those early days of the Internet. We all ended up emailing him, people like Peter Kelly, Joakim Moller, and me, and a few others, and then he put us all in touch with each other.

Crazy. Fascinating learning the history's history.
