Walking Dead: The Game

In case anyone is interested:

Gary Whitta, co-host of the tested podcast and writer of The book of Eli has been confirmed as writing several of the episodes of the game. He said they'll be 'going further' than the TV show, that they've come up with some 'really gross stuff', and that you'll play as characters who cross paths with the comic characters but it doesn't follow the story from the TV show.

This would have been more interesting if they'd tried to emulate the comic's black and white sketchy art-style, rather than Telltale's usual horrid art design with a dash of cel shading.

The first episode got an 8.5 from IGN;

The first episode is out tomorrow on PSN for £3.99 for the episode on it's own or £15.99 to pre-purchase the whole series.
No mention of when the 360 version is released but it'll be 400 MS points per episode with no option to buy the whole thing in one go.

I've just this minute watched the entire part 1 episode being played on PC and can honestly say it is very good indeed. Great to look at, great voice acting, and some REALLY tough choices to make. Episode 1 lasted about two hours.

If what the IGN review says is true then your choices carry across all 5 episodes, Mass Effect style.
I hope the 360 version is released soon!

Gamesrader review (No score, but it's sound very good indeed!)

I don't like the idea of paying £20 odd quid up front for a game I won't be able to finish for five months, that's the only thing stopping me clicking buy on Steam.

I eagerly await a chapter where you spend an Old Testament lifetime fucking about doing nothing on a farm being bored out of your mind.

At the end of the episode there were some 'Catherine'-type stats which list out the choices you made and what % of other players chose.

Pres X to punch the shit out of Carol's face.

I get annoyed just thinking about her.

Just finished the first episode. Felt a bit slow but certainly had its moments and the end was pretty good.

Will definitely be replaying it soon to see some of the other outcomes.

One of my friends played it and told me it was indeed good, so I caved last night and bought it. Just polished off the little bit that I had left.

Really liked this. An order of magnitude more interesting than the TV show (not read the comics). Great atmosphere and the choice-and-consequence stuff was lovely - looks like it's going to carry on impressively into the next episodes. Nice to see another game taking a leaf out of Alpha Protocol's book with dialogue timers.

Played through the first 4 chapters and a chunk of 5 (there are 7) and I'm really enjoying myself do far

Some of the choices can be very hard and you literally have a split decision in which to make them.

For this very reason the control options auto set to a 360 pad. I did try just using a keyboard and mouse but it was very clunky

The art styles pretty similar to the comics and although cell shaded I feel that the muted colours suit the game play

I'm looking forwards to finishing it tonight and eagerly await the next installments

Keyboard and mouse works fine except for one thing - the dialogue/option selection button is return or enter, which is really far away from WASD. It might also be bound to another key but the one that made most sense to me - space - does nothing.

There's also a few small issues with audio quality - it's quite low and hissy from time to time - but other than that it all worked well for me.

It seems as though the iOS release might be a way off, so I don't suppose this is scheduled to hit Live Arcade any time soon? My fiancee enjoys the TV show a great deal, so she's expressed an interest in playing this. I suspect she'd prefer touch controls, but I think she could stretch to a gamepad.

I'm very tempted too, probably get the 360 version so I can just buy the first episode and see how it is rather than committing to the full thing as you have to on Steam.

Anyone else having problems downloading this from the Playstation Store? I bought it and then noticed the game download is only just over 2mb in size. Thought that was a bit weird and sure enough it's downloaded it, says it's installed but then it's nowhere to be found.

Am I being thick?

Have you downloaded the unlock key and not the game? Check your download list.

That's what I thought but I can't seem to see it anywhere. Weird.

I really liked this, it's the best Telltale game in a long while. Really nails the atmosphere of the comic/show. It says a lot that the characters in this are already a far more likable bunch than those on the show too :/
