LCG Entertainment, a holding company that will be doing business as Telltale Games, today announced that it has purchased the defunct studio’s key assets, trademarks, technology, and select intellectual properties with the intent of re-releasing select games from the studio’s back catalog and developing new games in some of the company’s best-selling brands. The purchase, led by Jamie Ottilie and Brian Waddle, was made possible by a pool of investors and advisors comprised of well-known names in the games industry including Chris Kingsley, Lyle Hall, Tobias Sjögren, Athlon Games (as a shareholder and publishing partner), and several additional partners.

Could never get in TT's games - they're like point and click adventure games with all of the puzzles - ie the actual gameplay - removed.

Ideally nobody would work on a cursed brand like this unless they knew ahead of time that the workplace was unionised, but there is sadly a lot of desperate talent out there that can't wait around for job security or a safe work environment.

More details on Polygon, but the TL:DR version is that the original team that were laid off and never paid their salaries so that the owners could keep the money as shareholder bonuses have been offered "freelance" status at the revived TTG, meaning they get to do their original jobs for less money and without the employment benefits.
Fuck TTG.
