OverviewOverview

Walking Dead is a survival adventure game series. You explore locations and gather a ragtag group of survivors. How you interact with each of them and make decisions about various dangers results in a branching story where no one is guaranteed to survive.

These are graphic adventure games, that play out like a novel but with a narrative and characters that change depending on your actions. You can talk to people, explore your location, pick up things and take a wide range of routes.

Although at first, this feels like you are not really changing very much of the game. As time goes by it's clear that you are having a substantial and sometimes grave effect on how the stories play out.

The series includes the following games:
  • The Walking Dead (2012) The start of the zombie apocalypse where Lee Everett rescues young Clementine whose parents had travelled to Savannah prior to the apocalypse.
  • The Walking Dead 400 Days (2012) is 400 Days is a downloadable episode that bridges between Season 1 and Season 2.
  • The Walking Dead Season Two (2013) A year later, Clementine is separated from the other survivors and forced to fend on her own.
  • The Walking Dead Michonne (2016) A three-episode series that fleshes out the time between the first two The Walking Dead seasons.
  • The Walking Dead A New Frontier (2017) A few years later we find Clementine older now and with AJ, the infant she rescues at the end of Season 2 who is now a toddler.
  • The Walking Dead The Final Season (2018-2019) A finally that concludes Clementine's story arc.

Each of these represents a season of content broken into a number of episodes. The complete collection has been gathered together in the following package:
  • The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series (2019) includes all the episodes in one package for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
