Walking Dead non-release in Australia.

To Whom ever it may concern ~

I'm a gamer and I own a PS3. I've recently been watching Toby Turner's game commentary on The Walking Dead PC and have been really interested in buying and playing the game. I originally thought that it was only released on PC but after searching I found it on PS3. I was excited of this propect only to come across the devastating articles on the fact that Australia did not see the Walking Dead on the store shelves. I was so dissapointed because I thought this game was a great idea and looked so good to play.

I managed to find out that Tell Tale didn't submit the game due to our OFLC ratings on video games. I then came across an article that told me that the OFLC has confirmed that an R18+ rating for video games January 1 2013. I can only assume that The Walking Dead wasn't submitted due to it's restricted rating so I wanted to ask, if this rating is passed, will TellTale Games reconsider putting forth the plan of having this game released in Australia?

Thankyou for your reply in advance, It would be a great prospect to have The Walking Dead here in Australia, as I've heard alot of people want to experience the game.

  • UPDATE:

    TWD has today received an R16 rating in NZ.

    ETA please TTG?
  • My boyfriend felt the same way. He was excited for a PS3 release, realised he could not purchase for PS3 in Australia, and decided to play my PC copy instead.

    You're losing sales Telltale. ;_;

    Edit : Oh awesome, a PS3 release is now available! Although, very high in price. I'm guessing this isn't your fault though. :(

    Perhaps Chickenman and iSmokeHerb will be my valentine, now?
  • Getting close Bryan. It's now rated, but we still can't buy it.

    I'll just say. It has been a bloody long wait, sir. Happy previous valentine day to you. The only chocolates and kisses you'll get from me will be of the brown EDIT* and chunky variety.

    Ass-Kissing and poop jokes aside. It'll take more than this to win back the undying passion I had for this game at the beginning of the last season, man I was so pumped to play this game. No hard feelings though man... just anguish and despair. Don't worry though I'll tell you what you need to do to win back my passion... release here! In our two countries next season along with the rest of the world at the same bloody time, you know what I think actually? That'll bloody wet my sock. If you catch my meaning, so do it.

    Truly though it's good to say thank you finally. :D
  • So I've heard that the walking dead game has been rated and conformed to come out in Australia(yay!!). But does anyone know when it is actually going to be released in Australia?

    Thanks
  • I thought this post would be about setting the Walking Dead in Australia. To which I wanted to say, It'd never work, the local wildlife is more dangerous than zombies. :p

    There are no official release date announcements that have been made at this point. Obviously, the ratings confirm that those territories are in our plans.
