Congratulations guys I'm glad it did well. I haven't played it, I'm not really into it, but from what I've seen it looks quite good. I'm curious to hear how the choice system worked out for other people who played the game, I love multiple paths stemming from your actions. What happened based on what you decided to do?
The next episode will be out when its out, children, at least you're getting what you want soon. As a Sam and Max fan I need to swollow the shards of glass that is patience until Season 4 is announced (whenever that is).

I chose to help the mans son under the tractor only to realize he was dead no matter what :(
Then backing up the family that gave me a ride against the old war fart and the bitchy daughter.
Finally you always need someone with a good shot, so i'm sorry gamer boy in grandmas basement you had to go.
but i have played this so many times and all in different ways i cant wait to see what the outcomes will be. Keep up the great work on a great game.
On a side note, maybe make some customization controls for pc? Cant tell you how painstakingly uncomfortably and blocky it feels having to have my hands on all sorts of different buttons.
I chose to help Duck. And I then chose to take a side with that family showing the support. Actually one other thing I did was showing interest in that guys family before that incident happened. I also chose to be honest to Hershall because to be honest, I didn't even know if I was innocent or not. I didn't know if I actually had anything to hide.
And like the previous person said. I didn't actually want that guy to die, but I had to have a good shooter, so I choose to save the woman. Just because I felt that we needed her to survive. To the better of the group, we needed her. Or to be honest, I was so unsure of what to do at first, so we all died :-P
And that girl we met who was bitten. Seeing the look on her face and seeing her suffering from a slow and painful death, I chose to let her have the gun.
And for the choices I made. Even tough they seemed hard at some times, I still feel that the choices I made was right for me. I just hope next time it won't be choices like this. Choosing one person over another. When I'm the one that always going to make choices of who to save, that just makes the other persons weak.

I really enjoyed episide 1, looking forward to episode 2 but i want to know if they plan to continue the story after episode 6. So make episodes 1-6 season one and then do another 6 episodes for season 2. Would be epic has got so much potential.

I absolutely loved episode one and I loved deciding who to kill of and also enjoyed the cameos fro Glenn and hershal awesomely intense.
I also agree with one of the comments below after you've finished the first five episodes what happens next. You should have the first five episodes as season one and another five episodes for season two and so on.
All in all I think you guys did an amazing job an equal amount of action and emotional intensity keep up the amazing work

I thought each new episode would come in each succeeding month. Is there somewhere to find a release date for each of the episodes??

Great first episode. Really gives the feel of the comics and the show. But yes, please add a y axis invert. It's hard for me to play otherwise. Can't wait for episode 2! :)

I was pretty sure that this game stated that only other persons could die in this game and not the main character, but I ended up getting killed a couple of times during my play through. Maybe they only ment to say that if you end up dying, you just replay the part where you got killed.
I wonder if they will eventually learn what triggers people to come back as zombies. In both the tv show and the comics, they now know how. Still, after reading almost the entire series and watching the show up til now. I still have no clue of why people are turning into zombies.
I guess we're not going to find out this in this game either even tough this game actually makes us see how things come to be. We get to see how Hearshall became grumphy and didn't want new people to join. Probably because of the incident that happened in the game. I get a feeling of this because before that happened. Hearshall would gladly let us stay. And the fact that the barn didn't have one single walker inside. It was actually possible to sleep there.
And for Glenn. We found out how he ended up at the camp.
As said before. The game really catches both the feeling of safety and the feeling of "this is the end" in the same way as the show. You get to talk to people and get to know them. They learn stuff about you that they will remember. You learn stuff about them. And when you're feeling really safe. Something happen. It changes radically.

TTG usually takes a month break after the first episode (they did that for the first two seasons of Sam & Max, for Back to the Future, and some others) .
After the June release, it will be monthly, with the last episode in September (if I'm wrong, please someone from TTG staff correct me).

i think if its like the series than it should be weekly. new season every month, with 1 episode a week.

I haven't read the comics, but I have watched two seasons of the tv show, and I couldn't help but think what Rick would do in this game. Every choice I made was difficult, now I know how Rick felt when he made all those choices in the tv show and the comics.
I first chose to help Shawn under the tractor, but he died anyway and Kenny rescued Duck (wierd name for a kid.) And at the end I chose to save Doug, partly because I paniced and partly because I thought he was a better character than the reporter lady (whom I have forgotten the name of.)

I'm not going to play this game until Episode IV comes out. Then I'll play Episodes IV, V, and VI, wait 16 years, and then probably be really disappointed by the first three Episodes.

I think this game is great the wait time a bit much, but if it was quick a dishout of the game all you people would be yelling that it was a shabby game so inturn were lucky that there taking there time, saying that i dont like when video game makers dont tell you when its coming out that really annoys me, atleast give us a date when come on!!

I paid for something that was misleading. I thought I was going to have all 5 episodes. This isn't the cable series. I want my games and I shouldn't have to wait because I paid for them. It like buying a house but you can only use 1 room. Never heard such a thing!
