Is a ‘Walking Dead’ Videogame Coming from Telltale?
Having pretty well conquered comics and decisively killed on cable television, will the zombies of The Walking Dead drag themselves to the world of video games next? That is the suspicion over at games blog 1UP.com, who base their theory on a cryptic press invitation sent by adventure game developer Telltale (Back to the Future, Sam & Max). The studio promises to announce soon a project “based on a just-launched property from the TV and comic book world whose popularity is changing life as some know it.”Created by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard and published by Image Comics, The Walking Dead would seem to fit that description. The title is among Image’s most popular, and the AMC television series based on the book has broken ratings records for the network and for basic cable itself, earning more viewers between 18-49-years-old than any other cable show in North Camera. Telltale’s announcement will come at a formal event in San Francisco on February 17.
