Here’s a mash up I didn’t expect to see any time soon but Telltale Games has teamed up with Zen Studio, as well as Skybound Entertainment, to bring us a pinball spin off of The Walking Dead. It’ll feature locations from season one of Telltale’s series including Clementine’s tree house, and the streets of Savannah. That’s not all Zen are going to adapt for the pinball tables, with player choice also playing a part.
Telltale’s Steve Allison said the following:
“Players once again get to step into the shoes of Lee Everett and protect Clementine as all the major events of season one play a role in the first ever pinball game that features choice and consequence gameplay.”
Now I’m not even sure how that kind of gameplay will be implemented. One possibility is hitting the pinball in the direction of a choice, and then having that changing the table in some way. Or will the choice pop up and you have to make a quick decision on what action to take, and who to save. I’m sure we’ll find out more next week when E3 rolls round, but until then speculate away.
The Walking Dead Pinball will be coming to PC, consoles and mobile during the summer.
