My favourite moment in The Walking Dead so far was a mistake I made

Zombie choose-o-drama The Walking Dead: The Final Season released its third episode this week, after a short delay as Telltale sadly closed its doors and Skybound took over development (thankfully with at least some of the former workers on board). I haven’t finished it yet, because who has time to finish video games nowadays, even episodic ones that are only a few hours long. But…

Telltale’s The Walking Dead: The Final Season to be completed by Skybound Games

Following the abrupt layoffs of hundreds of Telltale employees two weeks ago, the company has reached a deal with Skybound Entertainment that will allow The Walking Dead: The Final Season to be completed. Skybound’s founder, Robert Kirkman, is also the original creator of The Walking Dead comics, so it seems a natural enough fit, but questions remain about what this will mean for the original…

Walking Dead creator’s Thief of Thieves gets heist game

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…

Shambling: Overkill’s The Walking Dead delayed again

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…

The Escapists Spin-off Meets The Walking Dead

On this week's episode of Whoa What Wait You've Licensed What To Make a Spin-off of Your Game? comes word that prison-escaping craft-o-RPG The Escapists [official site] has been romancing zombie world comic book The Walking Dead and is expecting a bouncy baby in less than nine months. They plan to give the wholly uncreative name The Escapists The Walking Dead. No, really. Just the…
