The Walking Dead Episode 1 Released

The first episode of this point and click adventure game was released today on XBLA, PSN and PC for $25. I recently wrote about the game when they first showed off some information, expressing my concerns for making a point and click adventure game in the zombie filled The Walking Dead universe. Feel free to check that out to see my reservations, but the article also has some videos on the game. To give a quick overview though, it is made by Telltale Games, the folks who recently made the atrocious Jurassic Park game, but they also made the much better Sam & Max and Back to the Future games. Read on for some gameplay and more info.

The Walking Dead is entirely story based and they deal with combat with quick time events, events that don't look all that bad, nor do they look that invigorating. I must say that it does look as if they handled a point and click game in the zombie genre the best anyone might be able to do, but my real concerns are about value. The first episode costs $25 and it gives you access to all five episodes, as they become available, each of which is about 2 hours long. So 10 hours of gameplay for $25? Could be worth it, depends on the quality of the gameplay. If you want to check out the game take a look at this newly released PC gameplay from MilanRE, it should give you a good idea of how the game works. Thanks for reading, hope this game is pretty fun and worthwhile.
