The Walking Dead video game concept art revealed

Jun. 9, 2011by: Alex DiVincenzo

Following the success of AMC's "THE WALKING DEAD" series, it should come as no surprise that the graphic novel is now being turned into a video game. After being promoted at E3, three pieces of concept art for the game have been revealed over at Game Informer.

The game is developed by Telltale Games, who have previously turned such notable properties as BACK TO THE FUTURE, CSI and the forthcoming JURASSIC PARK into video games. It will follow a similar story as that of the comics but will focus on new characters. Here's a bit more about it:

Telltale has gotten approval from Image comics to expand the series existing fiction. While some of the comic's side characters likely won't make an appearance, the main focus on the game will be a man named Lee, a convicted criminal whose escort vehicle is attacked during the zombie outbreak. The zombie apocalypse may have freed Lee from a life in prison, but given the state of the world, he might have been better behind bars.

During the chaos, Lee befriends a young girl named Clementine. Having both lost their families, the two form a pact, hoping help each other survive in this post-apocalyptic world. While this isn't a remake of the comic series, fans can expect to get more backstory for characters from the comic, like Glenn, and see places like Hershel Greene's farm before the events that changed them in the comics.

The first episode of the game is scheduled to be released for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, and iPad sometime next winter. More details are expected to be announced at Comic-Con next month.

I love Telltale and I enjoyed most their games thus far. Having said that, I agree, I don't think point-and-click would work for this property. No reason to be pessimistic though. Not yet anyway.

It's too early to tell how this one will be. Telltale is seriously going to have change literally everything as far as how they've made games before. This will be the stupidest thing ever if we end up with a point and click Walking Dead game. The potential is there though. Imagine if it were like the comic and it just never ended. They could do episodes constantly.

Wait... Telltale Games? No, in that case, I won't check this one out. Until they change their style for this one. Now, I haven't played Back to the Future games, but for those, their point and click reaction stuff seems to work. But then I saw video of Jurassic Park gameplay, which was with same style, and it looks downright horrible! And most of all, boring.

I'm amazed that Telltale has been able to snatch up as many rights as they have since they are a mediocre game company. I wasn't impressed with Back to the Future, Jurassic Park looks to be their generic point and click routine.

No.


I mean a console based Walking Dead game may have some merit. But a Telltale Game, not so much. I mean I enjoyed the Back to the Future game to start off with, but it's gotten increasingly absurd as it's gone on, and yet at the same time very mundane. They did a justice to the Wallace and Gromit license admittedly, but I don't think I'll be throwing money down for this one.
