Game Review: The Walking Dead Episode 1

Telltale Game’s The Walking Dead

Imagine a world where a mutated virus causes the dead to rise and then stalk and eat the living. Now, throw in a few desperate survivors that will do anything to stay alive. This is the main premise of The Walking Dead (an ongoing story of survival horror) that was first released as a comic in 2003. The comic was written by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore and published by Image Comics. Later developed into a TV series which aired on AMC in 2009, it is currently going into its 3rd season. Both comic and show have since become cult hits, which sparked Kirkman to team up with Telltale Games to produce the video game. Telltale Games is known for producing point and click graphic adventure games which are split into episodes and released as downloads. Other games they have produced include: Sam & Max, Wallace and Gromit, Back to the Future, and Jurassic Park.
