The Walking Dead Game Details and Screenshots Revealed

15 February, 2012 - 6:20 pm by

Developer Telltale Games¬†finally released a new batch of zombie-filled screenshots and details on a new online show — Playing Dead — all about its five-episode adventure game.

The screens are embedded here, and Playing Dead is available on the game’s official site¬†now. Tomorrow and into the future, it’ll be available on YouTube, iTunes, Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network.

The inclusion of the PSN and Xbox Live is interesting because platforms still aren’t known for The Walking Dead game — Telltale is still being coy and saying “spring of 2012 for all major gaming platforms.”

Need a brief synopsis of what the game based on the comics and not the TV is all about? Allow Telltale to preach…

Telling the story of a new group of survivors as they struggle to flee the horror of Atlanta and the surrounding communities consumed by the undead, The Walking Dead offers players the chance to experience the very first days of the apocalypse, meeting people and participating in events that intersect with the story seen in the comic books.

Gary Whitta, screenwriter of The Book of Eli and former editor-in-chief of PC Gamer, will serve as a story consultant for the game.
