Pocket Gamer has noticed that, hidden within OS X Yosemite, the latest update to the Mac operating system that arrived last week, is the ability to capture footage straight from a Lightning cable connected iOS device.
Intended for developers but freely available to all, footage captured this way comes in the full Retina resolution of the device, with no jag or frame rate drops even on bigger 3D games. Whilst it might not give users the editing or streaming options they might be able to get from other software and hardware, it does at least makes the process for getting footage for Let’s Plays and the like more open and a heck of a lot easier.
Telltale Games has released its third episode of Playing Dead, a video series discussing its new game based on the hit comic book and TV show, The Walking Dead. In this episode, gameplay footage is released as well as an interview with The Walking Dead creator, Robert Kirkman.
Here are some highlights from the interview and gameplay footage:
The game doesn’t follow Rick from the comic books or TV show, but is set in the The Walking Dead universe. The game will give people some information on some of the other characters like Glen before the known story of the comics and TV show. I also noticed Hershel in the gameplay footage.
Like Mass Effect, different choices create a different storyline experience. So players will be able to replay the game with different choices and end up with different outcomes.
The gameplay footage shows the player doing tasks such as feeding children, repairing a radio, fighting zombies with hammers, and talking to NPCs. Dialogue choices seem to be a big deal and remind me quite a bit of Mass Effect.
The PC and Mac versions of the game are already available for preorder and will be released in late April. It hasn’t been explicitly announced, but we can hope that the iOS version is released at the same time as the PC/Mac, XBox, and Playstation 3 versions.
Check out the interview and gameplay footage in the episode below.
