At E3 we were treated to a hands-on preview of Episode 1 of the new iPad version of the The Walking Dead game from TellTale games. This week see’s the release of Episode 2 – Starved for Help.
The Walking Dead is a five-part, episodic game series set in the same universe as Robert Kirkman’s Eisner award-winning comic books. Play as Lee Everett, a man convicted of a crime of passion given a second chance at life in a world devastated by the undead. With corpses returning to life and survivors stopping at nothing to ensure their own safety, protecting an orphaned girl named Clementine may offer him redemption in a world gone to hell.
- A tailored game experience: your decisions affect how your story plays out across the entire series!
- Decisions are difficult and often require an immediate choice. There’s no time to ponder when the undead are pounding the door down!
- Explore, solve problems and fight for survival in a world overrun by the undead. See the world of the comic books brought to life: artwork inspired by The Walking Dead comic book artist Charlie Adlard
Since Starved for Help is available via in-app purchase, all you will need to do next week to get your hands on it is fire up Walking Dead: The Game (universal app), select the “Episodes” option on the main menu, and buy the episode from the subsequent screen! If you have already purchased the Multi-Pack, you will see a notification on the menu screen informing you that your episode is ready for download from within the app itself.
Episode Two – Starved for Help can be purchased individually for $4.99 or as part of the Multi-Pack, an Episode 2-5 bundle, for $14.99! Take advantage of the Multi-Pack and save 25% from the price of purchasing each episode separately as they are released in the future.
The iPad version is very responsive and play’s just as well as the PC version of the game.
