TellTaleGames will happily sell their episodic gaming to customer with a season pass. This allows the customer to purchase the entire game composed of multiple episodes even though only a small part of the game is complete.
Customers who purchase a season pass get little to no updates on when they will actually get the next episode. If the customers do get a update it will be completely vague.
We ask TellTaleGames to provide weekly and meaningful updates for video games they are releasing in their forum for customers who have already purchased the entire game.
