The Walking Dead won many people’s Game of the Year award last year, including our own Lewis Leong’s. Telltale have built their reputation by salvaging the ‘point and click’ adventure genre and making it popular again for today’s gamers. A point and click zombie game didn’t seem a very likely proposition, but The Walking Dead‘s dynamic story, where your choices have tangible effects on the outcome made it great. In a world full of zombie games, The Walking Dead stands out as a really original title. We can’t wait for the sequel.
While Telltale’s games are based on The Walking Dead comics, there is also a tie-in with the TV show. From Activision, The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is a more traditional first-person survival horror game, and should be out on March 19th 2013.
