The Walking Dead: Episode One Guide

There are many different outcomes within The Walking Dead that affect how certain things are played out during the course of the game. What happens in your game may not be the same as what happens in another person’s. So just what are the different choices that you can make and what are the outcomes? That’s what we’re here to show you!


Not all of the conversations you have affect what happens in large ways and many of the conversation choices just lead to different comments from various characters. There are larger choices, however, that have greater impact on what happens throughout the first episode and will continue to do so on through the upcoming episodes. Be warned that there are many, many spoilers below.

    I've been gaming practically my whole life, and The Walking Dead has proven to be one of the best gaming experiences of my life thus far. Sure, the gameplay was simplistic and the choices could have had a larger impact on the outcome but the story was excellent and the gameplay worked well enough to drive it along. I wish more games were of this caliber, and I can only hope that Telltale will take what they've learned from this season to make the next one even better.

    So, it doesn't really seem like any of the decisions made in Episode 1 really effect much during that episode. I know they SAID that the decisions will span all the episodes, but I'm skeptical as that's a pretty bold promise. Will have to see how Episodes 2 and 3 fare before deciding on this one.

    I don't think they really intended to, as the first episode is effectively the prologue. I won't go into detail for the benefit of not leaving spoilers, but there's an incident early on in which, although you have a choice, you cannot change the outcome. But, that's because the outcome is a very important story arc for the comics, so that's understandable. The choice made towards the end of the episode will have a minor shape (who knows, maybe on a larger scale) as to how the story develops later on but that's what made me hungry for more as it ended Trust me on one thing, if you've read any of the comics, not necessarily up to date, and enjoyed them then this is a must buy

    Thanks for the reply! I realize my comment is short-sighted and won't be fleshed out until the finale - I'm just impatient and have a hard time buying a "season" up-front :) But I DID enjoy the demo, if I had more time to play games I would probably pick this up.
