Video: The Walking Dead Trailer

Zombies are all the rage, and with the success of AMC's The Walking Dead, it's only natural that there would be a game adaptation. Here's hoping that it's more of an adaptation of the comic and less of the TV show. At least as far as characters and development and that sort of thing...

"The folks at Telltale Games are a great choice for bringing The Walking Dead to life as interactive entertainment," said The Walking Dead creator/writer Robert Kirkman. "They care as much as I do about the story and characters while seamlessly weaving that into the games they build. Anyone who knows me, knows that I am ecstatic to work with the same people putting out the coolest Jurassic Park game ever."

Telltale has signed a multi-year, multi-title agreement that covers PC, Mac, console, handheld, mobile and social gaming media, so that's pretty much everything. I like the look of the trailer so far, and the fact that it looks sort of like the comic has me hopeful the story and characters will be just as compelling (and not hateful and awful like on the TV series!). Guess we'll find out when The Walking Dead is released later this year (probably in time for Halloween, which should be about the time of the third season premiere)!

OH GOD. "...same people putting out the coolest Jurassic Park game ever."

That game looked terrible to me. As someone who has a degree in animation and game design, I found the lighting, character models, and environments to look flat and almost too primitive granted the consoles for which it was released.

I can only hope the team of artists working on this game do a better job at delivering a better-looking game environment.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
