The trailer for Overkill’s The Walking Dead messed me up

The Walking Dead game from Payday developer Overkill Software is not going to fuck around, you guys.

The Walking Dead was announced earlier today as a co-op shooter from the makers of Payday, to be published by Starbreeze.

It sounds pretty good, with role-playing and survival elements, and lots of crossover with the rest of the franchise; The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman is a big fan of Payday and will be working closely with the development team.

But guys. Guys. This trailer. Oh my god.

Watch on YouTube

I need to go have a lie down. It’s really well cut, with the music and the little Kirkman chat at the end. If it weren’t for that I think I’d probably be calling in sick right now, and spending the rest of the day lying in bed manifesting grim existential despair.

Christ on a cracker. This shit needs a trigger warning for feelings. Good to know this one will continue TellTale’s tradition of putting your heart in a blender.
