The Walking Dead was really Telltale Games’ breakout hit, and sparked the reinvention of the point & click adventure as a more narrative driven graphic adventure, as well as helping to popularise the episodic game format. Telltale have announced that the latest story they’re telling within this world, following the iconic character of Michonne from the comics, will start on February 23rd.
In the first episode, In Too Deep, Michonne joins Pete and the crew of the sailing ship The Companion, happening upon a gruesome massacre as they search for supplies along the coast. This is a three part miniseries, but the good news is that, similarly to Minecraft: Story Mode, Telltale are going to be putting out episodes on a monthly basis, with the second episode in March and the finale in April.
The game is coming to the typically broad set of platforms, with PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC still accompanied by the last generation PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, as well as iOS and Android mobile devices.
Telltale are holding an extended preview of the first episode on their YouTube channel this weekend, on Sunday 14th Feb at 11:30PM GMT. Sounds like the perfect way to end Valentine’s Day to me, watching them deal with moral quandries in a zombie infested world.
