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.

Do you get the option to kill Carol, Lori and Andrea in this? Instant purchase if so.

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.

Well looking at the IGN video review they played the 360 version so hopefully it shoudn't be too far off!

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 :/

So I found out what the problem was. It turns out you have to download the trial of the game first and then the file you pay £15.99 for unlocks the full episode from that. Seems pretty ridiculous really, I never wanted the trial I just wanted the whole thing...

Anyway, problem solved.

I like the bit in RE4 when the house gets stormed, would be great to have other games like that too
looking forward to this, it does sound a bit like a fighting fantasy book choose your adventure

Yeah, that's what I meant; it's the way on a lot of PSN games that also have trials, certainly it's always the case with Telltale's stuff. Sorry for not making myself clearer initially!

Ah, no worries! :)

I figured what you said about it being an unlock file was probably the case, I just didn't realise the trial was what was needed. I do think it's a bit of a silly way of doing it though.

Cheers!

Agreed on all counts. Telltale should switch to making choose-your-own-adventure games full time instead of the Use Guyrope On Inflatable Rabbit shite.

It's a bit Fahrenheit/Heavy Rain in a way except it's got about 3 proper QTEs in the whole thing so far and they just involve two buttons.
