Is anyone afraid...

that the game will become too much like the show? Dan Conners spoke of tying them closer together in the future, and my question is what is your opinion? I wouldn't be too thrilled, for although I like the show, the game was praised so highly was because the story was a TWD story because of the setting and the adding of comic characters, but also because it was an original story that impacted gamers on a new level. I certainly wasn't expecting this game to turn out like this. I expected more of a shooter/horror game, and while their is some there, it is more of the drama aspect, which I have grown to love from TWD, and Telltale has captured immensely, moreso than the show I'd say.

I also liked it because it focused more toward the comics, not the tv series. I prefer the comics, and I think it shows better for the game. Again, my opinion. So I ask you, fans of TWD game, for your opinion!

  • I certainly don't want it to be related to the TV show at all. It should forever stay in the universe of the comic and the comic alone, in my opinion.

    With that said, i don't want it to be overly connected to the comic either, as it stands best on its own.

    Amen, Mornai! I agree 100%. I love the comics, and hope the game stays in the comics realm, but I don't want it too connected.
  • Might I add to those who think the game isn't already tied to the comics, season 1 used several comics characters, such as Hershel, Shawn, and Glenn(and Lilly, really) and involved several settings involved with the comics. The first option doesn't mean to keep the game how it is, but to make it a separate story altogether. The second option is to keep the game how it is now(more or less).
  • I prefer the game to stay within its own narrative. There's survivors all over Georgia, and I rather we get to experience their stories than have everything being overshadowed and tied into the TV or comic narratives.
  • I understand that.
  • If they keep the tie-ins limited to one or two interesting cameos that don't really affect either narrative, like Hershel and Glenn, then I'm fine with it.
  • No. (to the thread title)
  • so long as it doesn't become a game of the show, i wouldn't care much so long as it was executed well enough.
