And by details, I mean extremely-minute-practically-nonexistent details, but you’ll leave knowing more than you did.
From the sounds of it, Telltale games will be creating a brand spakin’ new storyline featuring two new characters. The characters, a seven-year-old girl named Clementine and a prisoner named Lee Everett, will have to work together to escape and survive the zombies swarming Atlanta.
Telltale has said that new duo will cross paths with famed characters from the comic.
The episodic videogame is slated for a Q4 2011 release. In meantime, check out a piece of concept art!

Man oh man, what an a-w-e-s-o-m-e week for lovers of the undead. On Wednesday we were blessed with a brand-spankin’ new Dead Island trailer and deets. Now it’s been announced that Robert Kirkman is working with Telltale Games on a “multi-year, multi-platform, mulit-title” video game based off of the graphic novel the Walking Dead.
Details are scarce, but here is what we know:
- Telltale is aiming for a Q4 2011 release.
- The game will be not only be available for consoles, but for PC, Mac, mobile and social gaming media as well.
- The setting for the game takes place in the comic book universe (can I get a Hallelujah?!).
- The game will be episodic.
To be honest, I’m a little hesitant. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for giving it a chance, but being a huge fan of the graphic novel and watching the series translate onto television so poorly (I personally don’t think the first season represented the Walking Dead as well as it could have) I can’t help it. Although I may not be bouncing off of the walls with excitement, I am bumping into them.
But hey, I’m hoping for the best. Fingers crossed!!!
