A rather sweet rumor has reared it’s beautiful head recently. Apparently, Telltale Games (the guys behind Sam & Max, the more recent Back to the Future episodic series as well as the upcoming Jurassic Park game) are hard at work on a video game adaptation of the incredible Walking Dead TV series. If this is true I might just have myself a sensual nerdgasm.
Telltale makes some great adventure games and it’s my belief that there can never be too many zombie games so the thought of a game (or possibly, series of games like the Back to the Future series) based on arguably the best undead themed anything in recent memory is rather exciting. This rumor comes from 1Up, which was invited by the developer to see a handful of projects they have in development. Among the list was a title “based on a just-launched property from the TV and comic book world whose popularity is changing life as some know it.” Yeah, I don’t watch much TV but I think it’s safe to say there aren’t too many TV series that fall under that description. Plus, a Walking Dead game is practically destined to kick tons of undead ass.
For those unfamiliar with The Walking Dead, it’s a TV series on AMC that centers around a group of people trying to survive in a world filled with zombies and bad people. It’s based on a comic book series of the same name so this as of yet unannounced game certainly fits the bill. Start praying to the Gaming Gods people, we want this game to happen.
