Telltale Games has released the second episode of Playing Dead, a video feature discussing the The Walking Dead video game currently in development. We’ve known they’ve been working on this since last year, but Telltale is finally talking more about what to expect from the upcoming game.
It was previously revealed that this will be an original story taking place within The Walking Dead universe. You’ll be playing as Lee Everett, a convict who escapes in the middle of the initial zombie outbreak. He joins up with a 7 yr old girl named Clementine and they must survive both zombie and human threats.
“Hungry for some fresh meat? The second episode of Playing Dead, the ongoing talk show where you can get the inside scoop on Telltale’s upcoming game The Walking Dead, is now available at the game’s official website. Join host AJ LoCascio, Lead Designer Sean Vanaman and guest Gary Whitta, (Story Consultant for the game with writing credits including The Book of Eli and Gears of War), as they discuss the expansion of Robert Kirkman’s world and how player decision-making is a huge factor in the game. In addition to some brand new screen shots, your questions are answered in the first of a series of video Q+A sessions featuring Lead Designer Jake Rodkin and Designer Harrison Pink.
Be sure to tune in to episode 3 of Playing Dead (coming soon!) with special guest, The Walking Dead creator and writer Robert Kirkman! We’ll also reveal the game in action for the very first time!”
While platforms have not yet been announced, expect the game to be offered as a series of episodic games that are available over multiple digital platforms, such as Xbox LIVE and PSN.
