Telltale Games will develop an episodic game series based on the NBC Universal television show Law & Order: LA.
According to a statement released by the company, the games "will take the crime solving focus to interrogation and criminal investigations, with a heavy dose of courtroom drama on each case."
This is not Telltale's first foray into adapting a crime drama into a game: the developer had previously released a number of titles based on CSI for Ubisoft.
The first episode of the game series is expected to launch sometime in 2011 for "PC, Mac, console, mobile and tablets," according to the company. Telltale's partnership with NBC Universal also includes the rights for social media applications, which the company previously employed for a Back to the Future tie-in game on Facebook.
Law & Order LA joins an ever-expanding list of properties licensed for use by Telltale Games. Others include Back to the Future, Jurassic Park, The Walking Dead, Fables, King's Quest and Sam & Max.
