Robert Kirkman Offers Insight Into Walking Dead Video Game

Robert Kirkman sits down with AJ LoCascio in the third episode of Telltale Games "Playing Dead" video series and offers insights into The Walking Dead video game, plus we get our first look at actual gameplay footage from the gamer's perspective

Telltale Games is getting ready to release the first episode of The Walking Dead video game next month (April), and they've released the third episode of their "Playing Dead" video seris.

In this episode of Playing Dead, host AJ LoCascio is joined by very special guest Robert Kirkman, the Eisner Award-winning creator/writer of The Walking Dead. Kirkman, who runs his own Skybound imprint at Image Comics, where he's a partner, talks about why the game isn’t based on Rick Grimes, why it's not an open-world shooter, why player choice and decision making is a big deal and why he chose Telltale to make a game based on The Walking Dead.

The episode also features the very first extended look at the game's Adventure Horror game-play.

The Walking Dead is a 5 part episodic game series coming to Xbox LIVE Arcade, PlayStation Network, PC, Mac and other leading platforms. The first episode will be available for download in late April.
