Walking Dead Episode 1 sells a million copies

Spreading like an extremely fun zombie virus, the Walking Dead episodic adventure game from Telltale has now infected over one million gamers since its launch on April 25.

Titled "A New Day" the first episode of The Walking Dead was reportedly the number one selling title on Xbox Live for two straight weeks. Until - we assume - Trials Evolution and Minecraft came along and stole our hearts.

Telltale also said that the game has been their fastest selling title ever. Which is great news for Telltale considering they haven't even launched the iOS version yet which will be coming this Summer, and is destined to be a big seller.

"A New Day" is just the first of five episodes that are being planned for episodic release. It costs $4.99 (or 400 MSP) and is available for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. Lets hope for Telltale that fans are infected and will come shambling back for more in the coming episodes.
