Episodes 11 (8 Released)

The Walking Dead, also known as The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series, is an episodic video game that takes place within Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead comic series.

The game is developed and published by Telltale Games, associated with Skybound Entertainment.

Telltale released the start of Season 1 at the beginning in spring of 2012.[1] The first episode of the adventure game debuted on April 24, 2012, for PC, Mac, and the PlayStation Network, on April 27, for Xbox Live Arcade, and on July 26th, for the iOS.

Due to the late release of the game for iOS, episode 2 became available for download on August 29th. The entire first season, (along with the "400 Days" DLC), was released on August 20, 2013, for the PlayStation Vita.

Kirkman has said that, unlike typical zombie games such as Left 4 Dead, it focuses more on characterization and emotion than action.

It is also the first game from Telltale to use the PlayStation Move. It is a point-and-click horror adventure, focusing on problem-solving rather than combat.[1]

Season 2 was confirmed to be planned by Telltale Games in July 2012. Later on, they pushed the release date towards Autumn 2013. The first episode of Season 2 was released on December 17th for PC/Mac via Steam and on PlayStation Network. It was released for Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network Europe and iOS on December 18th. It was released for PlayStation Vita on April 22nd in North America and will be released on April 23rd in Europe.

Trivia

  • Clementine's character was developed before Lee's because the designers wanted a "character that would act as a moral compass for the main character as he progressed through the game." [2]
  • By January 2013, The Walking Dead won over 60 'Game of the Year' awards, and as of June 2013, it has now won over 90.
  • Upon announcement of the '400 Days' DLC, Telltale reported that over 17 million episodes have been purchased across all platforms worldwide.
  • The video game has more protagonists and major antagonists than any other form of Walking Dead media, with a total of 8 protagonists (Lee, Vince, Wyatt, Russell, Bonnie, Shel, and Clementine) thus far and 5 major antagonists (the St. John Family, Save-Lots Bandits, Crawford Oberson, the Stranger, Nate, and William Carver.)
  • Clementine's brother was one of the original ideas for the main character, but was eventually axed due to the pre-existing relationship between the two.[2]
  • There was a pre-order contest for The Walking Dead Video Game in which four randomly selected players who pre-ordered the game were selected to be transformed into the game as zombies, while one player won the grand prize of being transformed into a character in the game, dying, and coming back as a zombie. The four zombies appear in Episode 5 as Lee makes his way to The Marsh House and the grand prize winner was Brie Rosenholm, who the character Brie was based on. Brie appears in Episode 4 and then again in Episode 5 as a zombie.
  • In a interview with Gavin Hammon, the voice of Kenny, it was revealed that a scene was planned in which Lilly would appear in "No Time Left" with the RV again after her original departure, but it was never made.[3]
  • Although it says: "Silence is a valid option", there are some points in the game that you are required to speak, or you will either respawn or nothing will happen until you do.
  • Writer Gary Whitta said that fans "won't have to wait for season two to play more Walking Dead". This was hinting towards the "400 Days" DLC.[4]
    • Choices made in Season 1 will carry over into "400 Days" and the choices made in "400 Days" will resonate into Season 2.
