The Walking Dead: Episode One Guide

Chapter 1

In the first chapter, there isn’t much that changes with the choices you make. Your dialogue options when talking to the police officer will remain identical, no matter what you choose. The outcome is always the same and the end result will always be hitting the walker that is strolling across the highway.


When you climb out of the car and go over to the police officer on the ground, you can die by not crawling away from him fast enough. It is quite difficult to have happen and unless you get up to go make a sandwich.


The other time you can die during this chapter is after you crawl away and pick up the shotgun and shells while leaning against the car. If you don’t fire quickly enough, the officer will get to you and have a snack on your melon. Again, unless you are extremely lethargic, there’s not much to worry about.

    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.
