Walking Dead: The Game for the iPad and iOS has been released today, and is available in the iPad App Store now.
This game is delivered in episodes by Telltale Games – this initial release has the first episode ‘The Walking Dead – A New Day’. Future episodes will be released and priced at $4.99, the same as this one. See my post on Walking Dead: The Game yesterday for full details on price and iOS devices supported.
Here’s a slice of the App Store intro for the game:
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.
Experience a dark, visceral and emotional series where every action and decision you make can result in the story changing around you. This tailored experience means that your story could be very different to that of someone else.
I’ve just installed this game and sadly have to go out for a dental visit now. I’ can’t wait to give it a try when I get back. If you’re a Walking Dead fan and you’ve tried the game out, tell us what you think of it in the comments.
