I actually got to play that, my cousin bought it on PSN and he downloaded it on my PS3. I just don't buy in to the whole pay per episode thing, I'd rather pay one flat fee and get a full game rather than have to pay for updates.

You can still buy the season pass.

Okay so after a few minutes if play and exploring it, I have to say I like what I have played so far!

Double tap to move, tap to attack so it feels like a dungeon crawler in some respects! It has sizable stages to explore, and it very much stays within the feel and tone of the comics! There are leader boards and 57 Achievements, and you can upgrade several aspects of your characters so it refers some replayability there! The game seems to have two more episodes planned apparently judging from the comic cover the render for the next two episodes. If you are a reader, you can have a good guess as to what those episodes will cover which as a fan myself, seems pretty exciting if they do a good job!

I can imagine how it can get pretty frantic if I had to control more characters on the screen with more walkers to deal with. All in all, not a bad spend for 2 bits! I will definitely be buying the episodes just based off my initial impressions!


My only qualm would be the loading times. Other than that it is a great looking game and it plays pretty fun as well! I'd give it a high recommend for fans and recommend if you are a fan of this type of genre of game it attempts (party based, dungeon crawl of sorts with open areas).

I have played into level two and love this. I think any fan would probably enjoy it. Controls work really well and once you get another member things can get hectic.

Picked this up as I'm a fan of the fiction, having played through the 1st Telltale season as well as read through book five of the comic.

Gameplay is a bit barebones, (although I have only played the very first level so far) think this would have been more justified at the $.99 price point, especially considering it looks like additional chapters must be purchased.

Glad to see some positive impressions. Love the comics so may grab this.

How is this set up? Are you given missions to complete? I read in the description that there is a timer...is there a time limit to complete tasks or is it for bonuses?

Is this actually official or just a typical barefaced rip-off from China? Seems odd that Kirkman didn't mention it at all in the comics, like he did repeatedly with the Telltale game. It also just looks incredibly cheap... It doesn't even use the Walking Dead logo.

Edit: Well it is on the Skybound site, so I guess it is official. Still looks incredibly cheap and rushed.

It's Adlard's art. Shouldn't that be enough?

That said, off topic, I really struggled with the comic once Tony Moore dropped out from drawing everything. I get Adlard has a different style, but Moore's polish was a drawing factor to me getting further engaged with the story. Besides Darrick Robertson, Moore is my favorite comic artist, and is the coolest dude ever. He's done so many drawings for me at no cost, he's literally the best.

ANYway, I don't know. I want to buy it, but I haven't even finished telltale's awesome game.
