Walking Dead: The Game for iPad and iPhone is available for free today – down from its standard $4.99 price.
This app is actually the game itself and Episode 1 of the 5 current episodes available for it – the remaining 4 episodes are available via In-App purchase. This game was one of Apple’s selections amongst its App Store Best of 2012 for the iPad, in the ‘Showpiece Games’ section. Here’s a little more background on it:
The Walking Dead is a five-part episodic game series set in the same universe as Robert Kirkman’s award-winning comic books featuring Deputy Sheriff Rick Grimes.
This is not another shoot ‘em up; it’s a game that explores some very dark psychological places, revealing that the undead are not the only thing to be afraid of when society crumbles.
In this brand new story, you are Lee Everett, a man given a second chance at life in a world devastated by the undead. With corpses returning to life and survivors stopping at nothing to maintain their own safety, protecting an orphaned girl named Clementine may offer him redemption in a world gone to hell.
It’s listed as free for a limited time only – so now is a great time to grab it if you’re a fan of The Walking Dead or just this genre of game. Here’s an App Store link for Walking Dead: The Game.
