TellTale Announce 'The Walking Dead' Game

[Update] It's alive!

According to the website All Things Digital, ‘Today, Telltale Games is announcing an exclusive worldwide agreement to develop and publish a series of videogames based on the AMC cable network’s zombie hit “The Walking Dead.”’

The post is dated 17th February which by my shaky maths ‘today’ (the 17th) is now ‘tomorrow’ (the 18th) and TellTale Games have yet to announce the game, no press release, nothing on their website.

The good news is TellTale still have access to the Back To The Future DeLorean so they can change history, the even better news is that if they do I don’t have to re-write this news item, it should change automatically as history realigns itself.

So for the moment there has been no official announcement of the game based on the zombie TV, series but as we have heard a rumour of the game before, it may very well be on the cards.

Update: It’s official, the game exists. IGN have spoken to Robert Kirkman, creator of the franchise. No platforms were announced but the license covers PC, Mac, consoles, handhelds, mobile and social gaming media and will arrive at the end of the year.

Thanks to hazelam for tip!

    As the series and comic is as much – or more – based on drama as it is on zombie fun, the game could end up feeling far removed from the original.

    Can’t see how this will be anywhere near as good as the TV show as often is the case. 24 anyone?

    Hmm. As much as I enjoy their games, I can’t see this being there kind of thing.
