The Walking Dead season two finale put a big, fat dent in our love of the property in all of its forms, but just like that, Telltale restored our faith. Late this afternoon, the studio posted the first teaser trailer for its series based on the grim and violent world Robert Kirkman has built, and boy, is it awesome.

There's still a lot of stuff we don't know about the games, like, say, how they'll play or when the iPad or iPhone versions are due out. Word on the street is that we should be expecting the games to release across iOS in April, perhaps a little after the XBLA, PC, PSN, and Macintosh versions launch. Fingers are crossed on that, for sure. Stay tuned to us as this stuff gets hashed out.

    I'm a big fan of the TV series, not much of a fan of TellTales' iOS gaming output.  Hopefully, the WD will break the mold.

    Wait... you DIDN'T like the season finale... but you're clamouring for a Telltale Games release after admitting that we know nothing about it? I feel like I'm taking crazy pills here.

    The season finale finally brought back the action that was missing in the season... and after JP and BTE, I've lost what little faith I had in Telltale which they garnered through Sam and Max.

    So they show some incredibly brief clips with little/no gameplay and your faith is restored? What's up TA?

    The season finale finale fixed everything that the rest of the season had been dragging ass on. It is finally restoring the television show to the glory that the graphic novels / comics were/are.

      As a 35+ year comic reader, I have to admit that I recently barreled through the first 12 issues of the TWD comic, and I think the show is way better. The dialogue in the comic is really stiff and unnatural, as if it were written but a 17-year-old with literary aspirations, but no experience. The adjustments they made (in-show) to the characters' personalities and their inter-personal dynamics are a giant leap ahead of what the comic exhibits. Not only that, but the pacing and plot adjustments seem much more exciting and suspenseful.

      My 2¢.

    The trailer was don by Daniel Kanemoto btw. The guy that did this brilliant TV Shop opening in anticipation of the first Season.

    Nice of them to bring creativ fans in instead of just copying their work.

    Also the TV Show is not nearly as good as the comic, season two was better but all in all it´s just sooooo full of plotholes and terrible characters....

    The season 2 finale is the closet thing to the comic since the season 1 premier.

    • Relytgninroht

      It's not supposed to be exactly like the comic though- the creator (Robert Kirkman) wants to make it a little different so that it's not the exact same thing, just on TV. Then you'd know exactly what was going to happen, and it just wouldn't be as thrillingnto watch.

    The first 13 minutes of the game are on youtube, it seems to play pretty much the same way that Jurassic Park played...

      This is the worse endorsement they could get unfortunately. Back to the Future was meh but could handle the cartoony makeover but Jurassic Park was a major letdown. Not a big fan of their movie/tv tie in direction so far.

        Back to the Future was the only thing I couldn't play on my iPad one that I have a shit about. It's good to hear that I'm not missing a ton.

  • Phoen1x1

    And the last 2 episodes of TWD were awesome, it has become internet fashionable to beat on the show now no matter how good it gets. Of course the ratings are through the roof so there will be a lot more for the haters to complain about lol.

    As long as we got some Michonne action, i'm up for it ^^

    I think it looks fantastic but having played a lot of TellTales previous ios games I am worried about the gameplay and over abundance of glitches.

    I can really feel the awesomeness oozing from this video :]

    Man, I have to know how you didn't like that season ender. No really, I HAVE to know.

    That was easily one of the best shows I've seen of anything except for Lori going inexplicably bitchy on Rick.

    And who is this 'our' your referring to?

    Never seen the tv show, but I'm looking forward to this in anticipation.

    Oh no!  why did it end up as a Telltale game?   I can't stand those, I like to play games, not watch them.  This is going to end up being a $35, 6 part game where you spend more time watching than playing... so disappointing...
