Robert Kirkman got interviewed by Collider and said a lot of nice stuff about us!
What is your level of involvement with The Walking Dead video game that is being developed?

KIRKMAN: I just had a meeting with them yesterday. I’m not writing the video game myself just because I don’t have time. I can say that I picked Frank Darabont for the show and I picked Telltale Games because they are very familiar with the comic book and they know what makes the comic book good and what makes the comic book “The Walking Dead” as opposed to just as, you know, zombies running around and cutting people’s heads off and stuff. If you want to buy a game where you run around and kill zombies with an uzi – that game exists and there are more of those games coming out. They are fun games and everybody likes them, but we are not going to try and compete with those games. We are going to try to do something a little different that is a little more true to The Walking Dead. Knowing that they are that invested in changing what you might expect from a zombie game and really brining the emotion and drama of The Walking Dead to video games makes me trust them. But I’m overseeing everything.

    Thats sort of a contradiction isnt it?
    Some of the nicest people I know use the word fuck and shit as part of their everyday language. Same with the selfless people I used to volunteer with.

    The real take away is: Kirkman is just a regular dude. He is now a very successful regular dude but it feels like the success of The Walking Dead didn't make him think that now he has to be someone different. He's super great!

    Interesting. I'm hoping this just means Kirkman doesn't know the term "conventional point-and-click adventure", though. ;)
    Use knife with cut piece of plywood.

    [wait for zombie to walk into view]

    Use wood-shielded knife on chain link fence.

    "Wow! That got 'em!"

    Wrong series.
    I think you mixed up the walking dead and left 4 dead.
  • But will it have verb buttons? "Walk" "Pick Up "Look" "Look Horrified" "Look Hopeless" "Mutilate" "Slip Into Depression" "Go Mad"

    No, this was just the puzzle in the game that teaches you that you don't want to use guns because then more zombies hear it and show up.

    Oh now I get the joke.
    Seemed more like L4D than a joke there.

    (what Gman5852 doesn't know is that I only came up with an excuse as to why I wasn't wrong after he said I was)
