Telltale Games has today announced that for a limited time The Walking Dead Episode One: A New Day (AusGamers 8.2/10) is available for free on the iOS App Store. Telltale has also revealed a 25% discount for the Multi-Pack bundle at $14.99 USD, which includes Episodes Two through to Five.
Based on Robert Kirkman’s groundbreaking comic book series, The Walking Dead is an episodic Adventure Horror game series set during the same apocalyptic period witnessed by Sheriff Rick Grimes. Telling the story of a new group of survivors as they struggle to flee the horror of Atlanta and the surrounding communities consumed by the undead, The Walking Dead offers players the chance to experience the very first days of the apocalypse, meeting people and participating in events that intersect with the story seen in the comic books.

The Walking Dead is a five part episodic Adventure Horror game that will be available for digital download beginning in spring of 2012 for all major gaming platforms.
You can find the base download which includes the first episode for free over at the App Store here. You can also check out AusGamers reviews on the very emotional roller-coaster series for Episodes One, Two, Three, Four and Five on each link.

You know zombies have made it in pop-culture -- beyond the norm -- when a comic-book series, inspired by the zombie films of yesteryear, is adapted into a successful (if overly drawn-out) television series, which then sparks a need for a videogame that shuns the successful TV part in favour of being more true to the comics.

That's exactly the case with Telltale's take on The Walking Dead, a new episodic adventure from the same studio responsible for Jurassic Park and Back to the Future. The Walking Dead Episode One: A New Day is where it all begins, and James "Jickle" O'Connor reckons they're on to something special here.

Find out why in his full review.

If you were confusingly scouting the PlayStation Store from an Australian PlayStation 3 today and wondering why you couldn't find Telltale's freshly released The Walking Dead adventure game, it's because they haven't had it classified for Australian sale yet.

In reply to a confused post on the Telltale forums (thanks Player Attack), a Telltale spokesmen had the following to say:
Sorry, but due to the OFLC ratings laws in Australia and New Zealand, and the fact that this is a mature game, we do not currently have plans to release the game there on consoles.
The Australian Classification Board currently have no listing of the game having been sent for classification, so it appears as though the developer has seen the 18+ ratings it was saddled with in other countries and decided it would be a waste of resources attempting an Australian rating. Unfortunately for New Zealand -- who actually do have an 18+ classification for video games -- they seem to have been lumped into the same basket.

An Xbox 360 version of the game was also supposed to launch this weekend and will likely meet the same fate, however PC gamers are currently able to obtain the game from Steam (which unlike PSN and XBLA doesn't require local ratings approval for regional sales) just fine.

On a related note, The Walking Dead TV Series recently started airing on Foxtel's new FX channel and has been rated MA15+ by the Australian Classification Board.

According to this news report over at Game Trailers, Telltale Games has spilled the beans on the development of an episodic game adaptation of the graphic novel series and AMC TV show, The Walking Dead. Telltale executive producer Kevin Boyle has stated that the game adaptation will follow the plight of a separate survivor, Lee Everett: a criminal who is responsible for keeping 7-year old Clementine alive.

According to Boyle, the game will focus on making players determine which is the lesser of two evils as it throws horrendous decisions at them. Boyle also had the following to say in regards to character overlap between the game and familiar faces from the comics/TV show,
“There will be some overlap with characters fans are familiar with. Our general take, though, is creating a story with characters players aren’t familiar with”
Between this and Dead Island, there seems to be a new trend with towards injecting a bit of heart and moral ambiguity into the popular zombie subset of games.
