[The Walking Dead: The Game] The Season Finale (Episode 5) is out now!
The Walking Dead is a episodic video game based on Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead comic book series. The game was developed by Telltale Games. The game will consist of five episodes, with the first episode released on 24th April 2012. Kirkman has said that, unlike typical zombie games such as Left 4 Dead, it will focus more on characterization and emotion than action.
The game will feature cross-genre of both adventure and action, in which, like in the previous Telltale titles, the player must make use of inventory items and environment, however, unlike in them, the played characters will have limited time to do so and could die in the process. The game is told from the point of view of a new character named Lee Everett, who will be the only controllable character in the game. Lee will however be able to interact with the other survivors and his actions will influence the plot in particular ways (like, for example, at some point Lee will have to choose whom to save from the dead, and therefore by letting the other individual perish, some of the game plot will change, while other remains unchanged). In addition, some characters from the original comic book series have been confirmed to make cameo appearances in-game. They will be Glenn and Hershel. Players will be able to meet them before the plot in the comic book begins to take place.
The Walking Dead Game will be available on multiple platforms via PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X as well as iOS App Store (NOTE, Game will be released later on the iOS App Store)."
The game will be released in 5 Episodes with the following pricing: $5 per episode or $20 for the season pass (5 episodes).
