Playing Dead discussion.

A lot of you have seen this already since we're getting press coverage today, but there's the link to the first episode of Playing Dead - a new online talk show we're producing to offer you a behind the scenes look at the making of the Walking Dead game.

Our video editor Shaun Finney spearheaded this project, and it turned out great! A.J. Locascio (the voice of Marty in the Back to the Future game) is hosting, and the first episode features some of the Telltale crew talking about their favorite moments from Robert Kirkman's Walking Dead comic, and an interview with lead designers Jake Rodkin and Sean Vanaman on what the game is, and what to expect from it. There's screenshots from the game throughout the video.

The first episode will be hitting iTunes, Xbox Live and PSN soon, and we'll have new episodes for you on a biweekly basis going forward, with 9 episodes in total.

Looking forward to hearing what you think!

    Lee is as mortal as the rest of us.
    So can Lee die and the story continue without him? Or is it a game over?

    If Lee dies it's game over. It would be a weird game if it kept going after the guy you are controlling is dead.

    What about Driver: San Francisco, where the guy you control through-out the game is dead and takes control of other people driving cars untill you hop out of them or kill them? :p

    Well it is a zombie game...

    This might be a question that would be more suitable for the webcast (if Robert Kirkman is going to be in one of them), but I was wondering what Kirkman's role was in the development of this game. Are there elements of the story that were changed after his comments, or did he suggest certain story points?

    actually he is. Alan twittered that they will be shooting a Playing Dead episode with Kirkman this weekend at the Image Comic Expo.

    IDEA! You continue the game but now Lee is a zombie! Shenanigans ensue!

    Om nom nom?

    In all seriousness, are there any games where you play as a zombie trying to survive?

    A sadly under-appreciated game!
