The Walking Dead: FAQ, Character Profiles, Pre-Order Contest
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Recently, Telltale Games has released a variety of new information about the upcoming game adaptation of Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead graphic novel series. The updates this time include character profiles, a new FAQ, and the announcement that those who pre-order will be entered in a contest to become a character in the game.

From the FAQ:

Does this game use Quick Time Events as the major game-play dynamic and does it prevent the player from taking direct control of the player-character like Telltale’s Jurassic Park: The Game?

No. The Walking Dead offers a completely different game-play experience to Jurassic Park. QTEs do not provide the major part of game-play and you will have full control over your character as you move through the game’s environments.

What kind of game is this?

It’s an Adventure Horror game. This game will offer a different experience compared to many other zombie-based games. You won’t be mowing down hordes of the undead as a super-powered killing machine with unlimited ammo; that would not be an accurate recreation of Robert Kirkman’s world. When you do tangle with the undead, it’s going to be harrowing. That walker could be someone you once knew…or were very close to. Also, gunfire (or loud noises in general) are not good in areas where walkers could be lurking.

Is there anything unique about this game versus other Telltale games?

Yes. For the first time, the decisions that the player makes will drive a “tailored” game-play experience. A decision that you make or something that you say will have repercussions not only in the episode that you’re playing, but also in future episodes of the game. Decisions will range from relatively innocuous (do I lie here and if so, how should I lie?) though to world-changing (I can only save one person here, who will it be?). Furthermore, you’ll come under pressure to make decisions quickly. You won’t be able to stand around deciding which option to choose during a conversation. The undead won’t stand by and politely let you figure out your next move.

Telltale’s previous games have featured puzzle elements. Is that something we’ll see in The Walking Dead?

You’ll be challenged with problems for sure, but not classic ‘Adventure Game’ puzzles (like you'd find in our Tales of Monkey Island series). You’re a survivor in a zombie apocalypse…you can imagine the problems that you’ll have to deal with.
