The first screenshot from TellTale Games' THE WALKING DEAD video game has been release via MTV and is pictured above. It features the two main characters of the game, Lee and Clementine. They are the focal point of the story, but characters from the comic will also appear.
For more on the game, read on and then watch our Comic-Con interview with TellTale about the game below. The first episode is due out in the winter on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, and iPad.
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.
