Another comic from Robert Kirkman, the creator of The Walking Dead, is getting the video game treatment. Thief of Thieves, his comic about a Thief, will next year spawn an episodic heist game. Named simply Thief of Thieves [official site], it’ll let us rob all sorts of colourful places as Celia, the apprentice of the comic’s protagonist. It’s leaning on those comic book stylings for its art, as you can see in this here announcement trailer I’ve whipped out a PR person’s pocket: … [visit site to read more]
Co-op brain-busting FPS Overkill’s The Walking Dead [official site] is now due in the second half of 2018, following yet another delay. It was previously due some time in 2017, and 2016 before that. Made by Payday developers Overkill Software, the game’s still a bit of a mystery, beyond being a co-op zombie-killing FPS with L4D-sounding dynamic levels and new characters and stories in the world of Robert Kirkman’s zombie comics. Given how vague everything we know is, a delay is little surprise. … [visit site to read more]
The third season of Telltale’s episodic The Walking Dead story-o-adventures will kick off on December 20th, the developers announced today. Clementine will return once more with new pals/future corpses and oh gosh is the world still full of wandering zombies? You’d think that rotten mob would’ve settled down by now. The third season continues Telltale’s wacky new policy of superlong names, bearing the official title The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series – A New Frontier [official site]. Nailed it. … [visit site to read more]
A lot has changed since the first season of Telltale’s The Walking Dead, and the development team has been taking some time to reflect on the course of the franchise as the release of Season 3 draws ever closer. Telltale Games’ Dennis Lenart and Melissa Hutchison (the voice of Clementine) took to the stage at San Diego Comic Con this week to share some new screenshots, a poster, and a few new tidbits on what the next chapter has in store.
With their hands tucked into so many narrative pies these days, it’s almost easy to forget about the series that both put Telltale Games on the map and revitalised the otherwise faltering point and click genre. Having first been hinted at almost two years ago, The Walking Dead [official site] Season 3 now has its first teaser trailer and a new supporting character who goes by the name of Javier. What’ll they get up to, I hear you ask. Let’s have a little look, shall we?
The Walking Dead: Michonne [official site], a miniseries in Telltale’s episodic choose-your-own-disaster line, wraps up today with the release of its third episode. This closes a gap in the comic book story, a point where Michonne had vanished off for a few issues. And Telltale will be dipping into the comic book world a bit more, according to comic creator Robert Kirkman. He’s opened up a wee bit about Season Three of Telltale’s The Walking Dead, which is due this year, and will once again visit Clementine.
Having never read the comic book series, I mostly know The Walking Dead’s Michonne as the samurai sword-wielding walker-whacker that’s played by Danai Gurira in the television series. Courtesy of Telltale’s point-and-click spin-off, though, I now also know her as the equally bad ass serial choice maker-er who’s about to embark on her third and final miniseries episode. Named “What We Deserve”, the last outing of The Walking Dead: Michonne [official site] will launch on April 26.
As first hinted back in 2014, there’s definitely going to be a Season 3 of Telltale’s The Walking Dead – because The Walking Dead in all its forms is a story specifically designed to never, ever end. Telltale promise that the endings of Season 2 will be respected, and claim what they’re doing is “not from the bag of tricks that that we’ve ever shown anybody before.” … [visit site to read more]
The Walking Dead: Michonne [official site] Episode 2, called “Give No Shelter,” is coming out on March 29th. To announce the release, Telltale have done something slightly different than the usual trailer, something quite cool and also quite creepy. They’ve published one of those recaps that remind you of the choices you made in past episodes, basing it on what the majority of players decided to do.
It’s a bit like “Twitch plays”, except these are the decisions of our collective hivemind.
One of the commonly used phrases in tech and games to describe a foolproof ease of use is even your mom . So simple even your mom could do it . That s where this article starts. Even your mom could play this game. But what do we mean by that beyond touch-based or click-only interfaces, and games produced for the often dismissed casual market? And, actually, how hard is it to learn to play a game? I decided to run a small experiment: let s be ambitious, let s introduce my mother to 6 PC games and not just easy games a mixed bag of different genres, control systems and approaches. Let s actually sidestep those assumptions about a huge part of our (Western) world communities, and see what it is for a mother, my mother, to play popular independent PC games.
