Bryan Lee O'Malley's Scott Pilgrim graphic novel series was spun into a full-length feature film over the summer via the Michael Cera-led Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. Further, a beat-'em-up game accompanied the film from Ubisoft in the form of the coolly received side scroller of the same name. Now, the author has revealed that Telltale Games also courted him for his series.
O'Malley recently tweeted that the Novato, California, studio behind adventure franchises like Sam & Max, Back to the Future: The Game, and the April-dated Jurassic Park: The Game approached him, and he said no.
"Telltale wanted to do Scott Pilgrim, but I said no," reads his tweet. "I couldn't see it as an adventure game. All respect to them, though."
Ubisoft's Scott Pilgrim game follows the central plotline of the graphic novels, as the mediocre bass guitarist Scott Pilgrim tries to win his dream girl Ramona's heart by fighting her seven ex-boyfriends. A ragtag coalition of her failed lovers--including a vegan rock star, identical twins, and an infamous skateboarder--are determined to prevent Scott from dating their old flame.
