New Original The Walking Dead Story Now Available on Wattpad



Can’t get enough of The Walking Dead, be it in comics, video games, or on TV?  Well, Scopely has partnered with Wattpad to reveal an exclusive, original story based on the rich world of The Walking Dead: Road to Survival mobile game for more than 40 million fans worldwide — and get them involved in telling the final chapter of the saga.

The four-part story “Fork in the Road” is written by Jay Bonansinga, who co-authored The Walking Dead graphic novels alongside Robert Kirkman and penned the scripts for The Walking Dead: Road to Survival mobile game from Scopely and Kirkman’s company Skybound.

The first two chapters are available now on Wattpad, a free app that lets people discover and share stories about the things they love, including original works by well-known authors. The story is being released one chapter at a time, with the central theme surrounding life-or-death choices and paths not taken.

When the last chapter is released, members of the Wattpad community will have a chance to submit their own stories for a chance to be included in an actual in-game storyline in The Walking Dead: Road to Survival.

Jay Bonansinga states, “Expanding and adapting The Walking Dead universe with Scopely for The Walking Dead: Road to Survival has been a unique and exciting way to bring these fan-favorite characters to life beyond the page. I can’t wait for Wattpad’s readers and fans of the series to get their hands on the brand new original chapters and share their own stories.”

The Walking Dead: Road to Survival is the first free-to-play mobile game based on the wildly popular graphic novels and was released by Scopely in partnership with Robert Kirkman and his company Skybound Entertainment in September 2015. The game was downloaded more than 4 million times during its first week and marks the 6th consecutive #1 game for Scopely.

“Fork in the Road” Synopsis:
Set in the savage, primordial world of The Walking Dead, the new original short story “Fork in the Road” by Jay Bonansinga, the New York Times bestselling author of The Walking Dead: Invasion, tells the tale of one person’s epic quest to escape their fate in Alexandria, Virginia. The only problem is that nobody leaves the ranks of the violent gang known as the Saviors and lives to tell about it. The struggle to flee the clutches of this group and find peace among the ruins of northern Maryland leads the reader directly into the heart of darkness. And like most stories set in this terrifying world, things in the end are not at all what they seem.
