The Walking Dead for PC / Windows is an adventure game by Telltale Games Studios best known for developing episodic games, such as Sam & Max, Wallace & Gromit, Tales of Monkey Island, Back to the Future, and Jurassic Park. The game is based on the award-winning comic book series created by Robert Kirkman, entitled The Walking Dead.

Plot

The game is split into episodes that make up seasons, just like a TV show. The main protagonist of the first season of The Walking Dead is Lee Everett. The story begins at the outbreak of zombie apocalypse, at the time when Rick Grimes (the protagonist of the comic) is in coma. When the infection begins its bloody harvest, Lee is sitting handcuffed at the backseat of a police car. He was arrested for murdering a man who slept with his wife. The developers decided to present adventures of an entirely new group of people, while the major inspiration in the creation process was Robert Kirkmanís work, which is regarded by the developers as the canonical version of the story. Players can visit places and meet characters well-known from the comic books and learn additional information about them. The first season of the game is divided into five episodes. Completing each takes about two hours on average.

Gameplay

The gameplay mainly consists of exploration, dialogues, collecting items, and solving puzzles. From time to time there are also simple action sequences, but it is worth noting that QTEs do not play such an important role in this game, as they did in the previous production from Telltale Games - Jurassic Park. In contrast to a typical zombie game, The Walking Dead is not about exterminating hordes of undead. The developers decided on a slower-paced gameplay, and players need to keep quiet, especially in places where the walking dead like to roam.

The Walking Dead for PC / Windows is the first game from Telltale, in which decisions made by the players influence the events. What you do in the first episode has consequences later in the story. It is worth noting that players have a limited time to make a decision and do not have a chance to carefully reflect on possible repercussions. When it comes to puzzles that you encounter in the game, they do not resemble ďadventure game-like problemsĒ, but reflect the reality of a zombie apocalypse. The creators also saw to it that the environment was interactive, so to provide players with more freedom when solving puzzles.

Technical aspects

The title has attractive, cartoon-like graphics, slightly resembling the comic books by Robert Kirkman. The game does not feature multiplayer mode and is distributed only via digital distribution.

System requirements

Recommended: Core 2 Duo 2 GHz, 2 GB RAM (4 GB RAM - Vista/7), graphic card 1 GB (GeForce GTX 460 or better), 2 GB HDD, Windows XP/Vista/7
