The dead are rising! To prepare for the zombie horde, we're hunkering down with stockpiles of new content about our upcoming game: The Walking Dead. The game, based on Robert Kirkman's award-winning comic book series, is about a world devastated by an undead apocalypse and the horrifying choices you’re forced to make to survive.
As we head toward the launch of episode one of the game, we're excited to announce Playing Dead, a nine-part behind the scenes video series where our team and some special guests spill their guts about making the game.
Hosted by AJ LoCascio, the voice of Marty McFly in Back to the Future: The Game, Playing Dead offers a closer look at what fans can look forward to in The Walking Dead, join in question and answer segments exclusive to the game's official site, and see interviews with special guests including The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman and Gary Whitta, screenwriter for The Book of Eli, writer for Gears of War and story consultant for our game.
If you want to be one of the first to see Playing Dead along with future episodes as they're released, head over to our official The Walking Dead website and be sure to check back over the coming days as we add more new content and information.
We've also just released more brand new in-game screenshots from the first episode of The Walking Dead and posted them just after the break - click through to see them now!
When we launched the newly revamped Jurassic Park: The Gameofficial site we promised you'd be able to explore Isla Nublar soon enough and sure enough, today is the day - welcome to Jurassic Park!
Much like John Hammond's original plans for his wildlife preserve, where only a portion of the attractions were to be accessible on opening day with a more robust lineup of rides and exhibits to follow, we've expanded the original site and opened the gates to Jurassic Park for all to get a look at the wildlife that calls Isla Nublar home!
We've also uncovered some files that Dennis Nedry had hidden away deep in the InGen databases but haven't been able to crack the password needed to access what's behind those firewalls. It keeps asking us for the magic word. Please do try your luck at getting past Nedry's pesky security as what's behind his password protection is likely valuable pieces of information about the park that was not meant to be seen by the Jurassic Park visitors.
So what do you think of the expanded look at Jurassic Park?
In the words of Jurassic Park's indomitable chief engineer John Arnold, "hold on to your butts" as we introduce you to our brand new Jurassic Park: The Game site! This site, along with the Telltale Games blog, is your best resource for information about the upcoming return to Isla Nublar - launching on November 15.
What you see today is "stage one" of the site, much like John Hammond planned the development of Jurassic Park to be rolled out, first with the wildlife preserve followed by the amusement park. Soon, you'll be able to return to the site and enter "stage two" where we'll have more information about various sites around Isla Nublar and the types of animals InGen has brought back to life.
So now, make your way over to the new Jurassic Park: The Game site and get the latest scoop on the park that paleontologist Alan Grant has decided not to endorse.
As many of you know, Japan was hit by a devastating earthquake and tsunami recently and the nation is still reeling from the terrible disasters. A group of video game industry folks have come together to form Play For Japan to help in the recovery efforts by organizing auctions of rare video game memorabilia and donating the proceeds directly to the cause.
Of course, you can donate directly to the relief efforts via The American Red Cross, the Japan Society, and Save the Children as well. Spreading the word about the game industry's work in getting aid to Japan is also much appreciated.
