About a year ago, Telltale games announced they’d be developing a game based off the popular AMC series, The Walking Dead. Earlier this week they finally confirmed that The Walking Dead: The Game will be available on Xbox 360, PS3, PC, Mac, and iOS.
“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.”
The game is to be a ‘episodic adventure game’ based on the graphic novels by Robert Kirkman. The main character is a convict named Lee Everett, who encounters a little girl named Clementine while trying to escape the zombie apocalypse.
Kirkman has said that “unlike typical zombie games such as Left 4 Dead, it will focus more on characterization and emotion than action.”
The Walking Dead: The Game will release its first episode in April, with the next four to follow “regularly.” The first gameplay trailer won’t be available for prying eyes until Monday, March 19th, on IGN’s Up At Noon Show.
