One thing about attending San Diego Comic-Con, there are a great amount of offsite events happening throughout the week that are a lot of fun! Saturday, July 23 at the Hard Rock, the Telltale team hosted a crowd play event for the upcoming game ‘Batman – The Telltale Series‘. This was my first crowd play event so I wasn’t sure of what to expect. The first feat in attending was learning of the secret venue for the event. Very Batman-esque. And before one could attend the event, you had to obtain a wristband earlier in the day. So just to get into the event was an adventure in itself, and in pure SDCC fashion!
The event was set in the Legend ballroom of the Hard Rock Hotel San Diego which was turned into a theater setting. Once everyone was seated, the event began. I learned it wasn’t the first crowd play event hosted by Telltale games. Basically, this event was like a public Choose Your Own Adventure videogame session with the crowd shouting their choice. The panel guests were Troy Baker (who voices Batman), the episode’s director Kent Mudle and Telltale’s Head of Creative Communications, Job J. Stauffer. And dressed as our cape crusader moderator and gamer was Greg Miller from Kinda Funny.
