The Walking Dead lead writer Sean Vanaman and 22 Cans founder Peter Molyneux have interviewed each other on topics such as writing, character, story and emotion.
The interview was conducted by GameInformer, and it’s made clear early on that Molyneux really loves The Walking Dead and called the way TellTale improved story-telling in adventure games “genius”, and praised the urgency of the games many difficult decisions. He added that the pressure makes the zombie apocalypse setting feel both tense and tangible.
It’s a very interesting conversation that really digs deep into the power of narrative and strong writing in games. It’s also over an hour long but bear with it if you’re a fan of TellTale’s series.
