The game that made Telltale really famous. Lee Everett struggles to stay alive in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. As he tries to find shelter, he encounters a girl, Clementine, whose parents left on a trip to Savannah, leaving her with a babysitter who has now turned. He rescues her, and they embark on a quest to find them.

You can find the main thread over this way. We'll be playing The Walking Dead in July 2020, with an extra month if need be.

Ooh, I have thought about replaying the whole series. Might be the right time.

I'm not sure if I own this on 360 or PS4. I'll have to check.

Installing!

I still have it on my PS3, but there have been a few changes since I played it way, way back when:

1- The Telltale paradigm this game codified got spread thin by Telltale itself.

2- Telltale collapsed, in part because they were chasing this dragon.

3- I developed a real antipathy for the source material.

So this will be interesting.

Oh! May I join in with this one?

Of course! Door’s always open.

I get that. It’s complicated, I get that. This is the first that really made Telltale what it is, before all of the others that repeated the formula. And I love David Fennoy (the voice actor for Lee), so I still want to give it all a fair shake.

I’ll be kicking off my stream of the first episode later today so look forward to that, everyone!
