First screenshots from Telltale’s The Walking Dead released

Saturday, 23rd July 2011 23:14 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Telltale released three screenshots from its game version of The Walking Dead, and IGN has them posted. We haven’t gotten them in the mail just yet, but when we do, we will re-post the lot. Telltale has said the game will take the developer to “the darkest place,” it has ever been, and it will be based on the comic instead of the television series, and will star a prisoner named Lee and a seven-year-old girl named Clementine. A release date for The Walking Dead and its Facebook tie-in has yet to be announced.

Meanwhile, just for fun, check out the Season 2 premiere video for The Walking Dead TV series here.

    Thank god it’s based on the comic and not the horrible TV-Series.

    It’s Telltale. It’s either gonna be “tame” or “not quite”. Or both.

    They excel at turning any kind of IP into a mediocre videogame.

    Game’s gonna be crap. Taking advantage of the success of the wonderful job Frank Darabont and others did for the TV. Maybe I’m wrong but that’s what I think and I feel this game will be.

    @4: Ever read the comic? There is a fucking big difference between the tv-series and the source material. If you’ve read it, i guarantee you, you’d drop watching the tv-series in a second.

    @5: Hush now, son.

    WHat works as a comic doesn’t work for TV or film. That is fact. You can ignore the TV show and continue to read your comics while I will enjoy the TV show and yes I have read the comics. You don’t need to copy one form of media to another to sell it, you just make it stand on its own in which the TV show does that.

    Stating your negative opinion on a form of media is trolling now? Anyhoo, if the main character is a prisoner, not the Sheriff dude, am I assuming this Is set in the Walking dead universe, but not using characters from the comic?

    A game set in the Marvel Zombies universe next plz :)

    @7: Agree to disagree. IMO the TV-Series is just down right boring compared to the Comic Series. Why adapt a series if you’re going to change it? Could call it Walking Zombies and be done with it.

    And from what i’ve read, the second season is going to be worse.

    To be honest it’s good it goes a different route. Seeing as how the beginning was already as bad as it could be.

    “Why adapt a series if you’re going to change it? Could call it Walking Zombies and be done with it.”

    Good adaptations don’t copy; they use the universe created by the original author and/or situations, characters and ideas and put them to good use. Sometimes it can go wrong as hell as the Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Doom and other movies. Sometimes it can go damn right like Apocalypse Now and The Walking Dead. You have to give credit to the series, even if it’s not as good as the source material (we all know source is never going to be suprassed) its artistic and technical value is huge.

    Silent Hill movie wasn’t crap. The writer and the director actually played the game and captured the very essence of Silent Hill and many reviewers and bloggers have said its the best adaptation from a Video game which no video game to movie adaptation has done yet. The director of the movie even said that the first game was used as a reference and they had many talk to Team silent about it. Konami when Christophe came to them to buy the rights to make the film said the vision and artistic style had to be there. Where RE was just a guy with money and we all know how Capcom likes money and doesn’t care about the franchise.

    @11: Nope, i don’t. They picked up a fine and very edgy comic and made it mediocre and soft. They didn’t get the feel right. The atmosphere is not really there. It’s not bleak enough. So no, i don’t give them any credit for that.

    @12: Absolutely agree, loved the Silent Hill film. Not afraid to say it. The got the feel just right.
