The Walking Dead comic books and AMC TV series have a talent for cultivating fear in broad daylight. It's a good
sign for The Walking Dead video game, then, that Telltale Games
manages to strike that same eerie chord in its first teaser trailer.
That kitchen is the same one glimpsed in
last month's screenshots. As for that pool of blood, well, it's safe
to say that wasn't chicken.
Walking Dead will be set in the same universe as Robert Kirkman's
graphic novels (yeah, yeah, “comic books”), but follow a new
group of survivors as they attempt to flee Atlanta in the beginning
days of the walker outbreak. Reporting on Telltale's progress in the
latest presser, Robert Kirkman said,“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.”
undead adventure game will be released in five parts starting this
April. Look for it rise on Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and
in PC and Mac digital stores.
