We've been eagerly anticipating news on Telltale's Walking Dead game ever since it was first announced, and after months of silence it's finally ready to be revealed... but only just a little. Today, the developer released three new screenshots that give a clear look at the game's graphical style. It's absolutely wonderful, and even if you're typically not a fan of the studio's style you'll likely be blown away with the way they're handling the comic-look.
Besides showing off the glorious visuals, Telltale also announced "Playing Dead," a nine-part online talk show of sorts that will give some insight into the with behind-the-scenes sneak peeks. The show will feature guests such as creator/writer Robert Kirkman and Gary Whitta, screenwriter for The Book of Eli and story consultant for the game.
“Collaborating with Telltale on The Walking Dead continues to be a fantastic process. They understand the world and the characters that I created and what it takes to make a game out of them. What’s really exciting is that they’re telling a new story with new characters, so you’ll get to see the same world Rick Grimes did, but now from a different point of view,” said Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead. “Playing Dead is going to be an awesome way for fans to learn about the game and how it was made. It makes sense that Telltale are talking to people in this unique way because The Walking Dead is going to be a unique zombie game.”
The first episode is live on the website, located here, and you can check out the gallery below for the images from the game. The zombie apocalypse can't come soon enough.
