"The Walking Dead: The Game" will be released for Xbox Live, Playstation Network, PC, Mac and iOS
"Walking Dead" fans who want to play out their zombie-zonking fantasies will be in luck next month, when Telltale Games releases "The Walking Dead: The Game."
Telltale, which has also produced videogame adaptations of "Back to the Future," "Jurassic Park" and "Law & Order," is offering the game for pre-order now and tells TheWrap the game will be available "late in April." It will be released for Xbox Live, Playstation Network, PC, Mac and iOS.
"Walking Dead" comics creator Robert Kirkman consulted with Telltale on the game, and even introduces the just-released trailer for the zombie apocalypse adventure.
The multi-episode game will follow the same basic timeline as the "Walking Dead" graphic novels and will feature some of the characters from the comics and TV show (Glenn, for example). It will also introduce new characters like a man named Lee (pictured) who will lead some survivors, and a little girl named Clementine.
The official game website includes "Playing Dead," an online talk show in which the videogame's writers and designers discuss creating the game and its characters and storylines.
