Telltale's Jake Rodkin On Creating The Walking Dead
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Joystiq has published a new interview with Telltale Games' Jake Rodkin about the upcoming game adaptation of The Walking Dead. Based on the graphic novel and AMC television series, the game will follow the struggles of characters caught in a zombie apocalypse.

Telltale's game will follow Lee, a prisoner, and Clementine, a young girl he comes across in the zombie apocalypse. And anyone with hopes of anything resembling a feel-good ending should probably check that at the door on the way in. "The Walking Dead," Rodkin said, "is not really a game about people who save the world. It's more about a story of trying to survive as people inside of this huge and horrible situation."

If you're a big fan of Rick Grimes, the series' main protagonist, you'll be glad to hear that you may see him and other regulars in Telltale's game. Rodkin did say that the game's characters will "cross paths" with the main Walking Dead storyline, though he definitely doesn't want to fall in line with the story we already know. "As we go along, the number of crossed paths will reduce, and it'll focus down on the story of our game."

...And there's one more thing about The Walking Dead that will make it stand out from the rest of Telltale's games. Previous titles were more or less episodically self-contained, but Rodkin said that episodes in The Walking Dead will "be able to talk to each other." Characters that die in one game in Episode 1 will stay dead, or if the player keeps them alive, they'll reappear in later episodes.
