When talking about The Walking Dead Season 2 in August, Telltale Games (or more specifically, writer Gary Whitta) teased there would be some additional content before then. While we’re still unsure what additional content Whitta was referring to, we have our first clue thanks to Telltale’s Vine account.
As many of you know, Vine videos are fleeting glimpses, and are the bane of news reporting. However, they also offer publishers and developers the opportunity to tease their projects without feeling like they’ve given too much away.
Such is the case with the Vine below, which has left us more perplexed than anything.
It’s not an absolute certainty the video is teasing The Walking Dead, although the art style featured therein evokes Telltale’s award-winning game. The “Day 2” title for the Vine also suggests a follow-up to The Walking Dead — perhaps getting to where the Season 1 characters ended up (those that survived at least).
That being said, the cork board idea isn’t something we’ve seen in The Walking Dead thus far. Perhaps this is a pared down version of The Walking Dead, hence the interstitial release.
We know for sure that the game, whatever it may be, features a character named Vince who likes to party, and a girl wearing a Telltale Games shirt. Unfortunately, that’s really all we know.
That shouldn’t, however, temper fans enthusiasm for The Walking Dead Season 2. Telltale games found the right IP to support their game mechanics, and they executed on a story that was emotional and exciting. And they did it all without pandering to the TV show crowd (we’re looking at you Survival Instinct).
In addition to more Walking Dead, Telltale also has a new project in the pipeline, an adaptation of Bill Willingham’s Fables graphic novels called The Wolf Among Us. While we doubt this Vine is connected to that game, first details sound promising nonetheless.
What do you make of Telltale Games brief teaser? Is it related to The Walking Dead?
The Walking Dead Season 2 is slated to release later this Fall.
