I think it’s pretty fair to say that The Walking Dead universe and characters have been pretty huge hits on the App Store in the last few years. First, Telltale tried its magic narrative-driven recipe on characters like Lee and Clementine – and in the near future on Michonne – and then we got games like Scopely’s The Walking Dead: Road to Survival (Free), which inserted the comic book characters into a base-building story-driven social game, and these are just a few of the ways the franchise has invaded the App Store. Now, Scopely and Telltale have decided to mix their universes for a limited time event that should be quite entertaining. Between December 10th and January 31, characters from Telltale’s The Walking Dead: Season 1 (Free) will make their way (probably hacking zombies along the way) into The Walking Dead: Road to Survival, initiating in that way a very intriguing blend of worlds.
You should expect to explore storylines starring characters like Lee, Kenny, and, of course, Clementine, in what will be a real treat for fans of the franchise and an opportunity for those faithful to one or the other universe to cross over, even for a while. In order to unlock the Telltale characters, you’ll have to complete roadmap or other limited, in-game events, and every week different characters will enter the fray. As a person who enjoys strong narratives, I’m curious to see how the two worlds will blend and how the writers will attempt to bring everything together. The more Walking Dead, the merrier.
