Telltale's Walking Dead: The Game Coming To All iOS Devices This Thursday!

Posted by Rob LeFebvre on July 24th, 2012

Holy zombies! if you've been playing Telltale's amazing Walking Dead: The Game on Mac or PC via Steam, you know what fantastic news this is for gamers waiting for it to show up on iOS. The wait is now over, with the first episode ready to download this coming Thursday, July 26, for $4.99.

The fine minds at Telltale Games have spent a ton of time tweaking and optimizing the game for a touch interface. You'll be able to explore Robert Kirkman's award-winning post-apocalyptic universe with characters that don't appear in the comics or the television series. You'll get to play Lee Everett, a man with a dangerous past, as he navigates his new, zombie-infested world, trying to care for Clementine, a young girl that he meets and takes under his wing.

The Walking Dead for iOS will be $4.99 per episode for the future installments, or save 25% off the individual episodes with the Episode 2-5 bundle for $14.99. This is the same price as the game on Steam, which should prove interesting to see if iOS gamers are as willing to pay for a quality gaming experience as those on the PC and Mac platform.

Walking Dead: The Game will run on the new iPad, the iPad 2, the iPhone 4 & 4S, and any iPod touch 4th Generation or newer. Episode 2, already out on Steam, will release for iOS soon, according to the developers.

Gameplay Footage and Interview for The Walking Dead Game

Posted by Kevin Stout on March 27th, 2012

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.
