Telltale Games and The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman have unveiled new screenshots from the upcoming game, a new online talk show that follows the creation of the game (Playing Dead), and a new website dedicated to the game.
Playing Dead takes you behind the scenes to reveal exactly how the game was created. The nine-part show is hosted by AJ LoCascio and will include many guests such as Robert Kirkman and Gary Whitta. Playing Dead will also be available on YouTube and iTunes after being posted on the new website for a 24-hour period and other places soon after.
Details and Quotes From the Official Press Release
Based on Robert Kirkman’s groundbreaking comic book series, The Walking Dead is an episodic adventure horror game series set during the same apocalyptic period witnessed by Sheriff Rick Grimes. 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.
“Telltale has always believed in sharing and interacting with our fans as much as possible as we head towards the launch of a game, and Playing Dead is an exciting evolution of that process,” said Dan Connors, Telltale co-founder and CEO. “I don’t think any other developer or publisher has created anything quite like this before, and we really hope that people will enjoy it.”
“Collaborating with Telltale on The Walking Dead continues to be a fantastic process. They understand the world and the characters that I created and what it takes to make a game out of them. What’s really exciting is that they’re telling a new story with new characters so you’ll get to see the same world Rick Grimes did, but now from a different point of view,” added Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead. “Playing Dead is going to be an awesome way for fans to learn about the game and how it was made. It makes sense that Telltale are talking to people in this unique way because The Walking Dead is going to be a unique zombie game.”
