The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman has nothing but love for TellTale’s adaptation.
“Like everybody who’s played it I’m fairly impressed by what they’ve been able to do,” Kirkman told IGN.
“Being able to take a more storytelling approach to it and make it an interactive experience that tells a more in-depth story than the average action game is something that’s much more in line with what The Walking Dead is about, and also brings a very unique gameplay experience – I’m really quite taken with it.”
Kirkman was involved in early development of Telltale’s episodic adventure, explaining elsewhere why he chose to make the games distinct from the story of Rick Grimes told in other media.
The first two episodes of the The Walking Dead are available on iOS, Mac, PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and have sold like hotcakes.
