The Walking Dead

7 Dec

Most of today’s zombie survival games focus on arming yourself with guns and shooting zombies in order to survive. If you’re looking for a different zombie survival game with a good story and some roleplaying elements, then The Walking Dead video game might be the one for you.

 

About the Game

The Walking Dead is a point-and-click game with some roleplaying elements thrown in. It is developed by Telltale Games, the same developer who made the popular adventure games such as Monkey Island and Sam & Max. The Walking Dead consists of 5 episodes in all. The fifth episode, “No Time Left” was released on November 20, 2012. This game is currently available on the PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, Microsoft Windows (PC), and Mac OS X.

 

Gameplay

This game is an adventure game that requires you to examine items and determine when and where you should use them. You will also need to interact with the game’s characters and make moral decisions that will have consequences with your relationship with them. You will need to use the environment and the items in your inventory in order to survive and move the story forward. Because of the zombies in the game, you often have limited time to figure out how to use your environment or items before the zombies get to you. There are also Quick Time events in the game’s action scenes that determine whether you survive or die. The Walking Dead is a nice change from the usual “point gun and shoot” zombie survival games in the market.
