6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Telltale Games has announced that No Time Left, the final episode of its video game series based on The Walking Dead comics, is now available. Based on the series by Robert Kirkman, the adventure follows the story of a band of zombie apocalypse survivors. Each episode following the first is uniquely tailored to the choices players made in previous installments.

"It's been a real thrill to watch Telltale's success with The Walking Dead," said creator of The Walking Dead franchise, Robert Kirkman. "They absolutely delivered on their promise to give fans an experience that's 100% authentic to the comic books. I can't wait for people to play the last episode of this season and I look forward to more stories of The Walking Dead from the Telltale team."

"No Time Left is the exclamation point on what has been an amazing ride of a season," added Dan Connors, Telltale CEO. "Gamers across multiple platforms have lived and died with Lee, Clem and the other survivors over the last seven months. Telltale's choice-based gameplay and tailored storytelling has engaged players in a way that hasn't been seen before in games, and we can't wait for people to see how their story ends."

The Walking Dead is a five-part game series set in the same universe as Robert Kirkman’s award-winning comic book series. Play as Lee Everett, a convicted criminal, who has been given a second chance at life in a world devastated by the undead. With corpses returning to life and survivors stopping at nothing to maintain their own safety, protecting an orphaned girl named Clementine may offer him redemption in a world gone to hell.

Run 'n' Gun In Shadowruns Returns
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Harebrained Schemes producer Mitch Gitelman has released a new blog post featuring a status update on the upcoming Shadowrun Returns RPG. Among other things the post covers the company's first gameplay prototype, "Run 'n' Gun."

Our first big milestone was our gameplay prototype. It was called “Run ‘n’ Gun,” and the goal was to test our development tools and create a firm foundation to build the rest of our gameplay upon. We built a secret lab environment, populated it with Lone Star guards and played a team of shadowrunners trying to steal some tissue samples. Run ‘n’ Gun exercised our combat interface, artificial intelligence, animation system, and editor. Everyone contributed.

Since then it’s been iteration, iteration, iteration with everyone playing the game first thing in the morning and noting the things that needed to change. Based on the team’s feedback, we redesigned our first-draft combat interface, and the second-draft works much smoother. We’re going to play with it for a few weeks and keep a running list of the team’s feedback before making further revisions.

We’ve also revised and debugged our base combat AI so they choose the right weapons (watch out for the grenades), use cover appropriately, reload, use medkits, attack aggressively or become cowardly, and respond to gunshots or calls for help. It’s taken awhile but they’re fun to fight with just guns, fists, and swords. Once NPCs start using tech and magic, things are going to really get crazy.
