Based on the beloved comic and television series, The Walking Dead is an episodic video game series by Telltale Games that lets players make the tough decisions you face in a zombie apocalypse. This is a series that places story and character first, drawing in the player with complex and multidimensional characters and then forcing gut wrenching decisions upon them to mirror the dark and realistic nature of the comic and show.

The Walking Dead follows Lee Everett, convicted murderer, and Clementine, a young girl, as they navigate zombie-infested Georgia. Because the game is story based, it deals heavily with the difficult decisions that must be made rather than slaughtering endless hordes of zombies. Players must make snap decisions that can lead to deaths or destroyed relationships, keeping the pace up despite the game largely lacking combat or other traditional game mechanics.

The series has been highly praised for its intense decision-making and commitment to character development. It’s been considered to be one of the best examples of video game storytelling and has been credited with the revitalization of the adventure game genre, renewing interest in Telltale’s other games and the power of interactive storytelling.

A third season of the game is currently under development by Telltale Games, but there is currently no concrete release date or plot information. It’s believed that the game will come out in 2015.
