So, we're trying something new!
Walking Dead game designers Sean Vanaman and myself have recorded "Episode 0" of a Walking Dead-releated Telltale podcast. We want you to check it out!
Telltale Games' Walking Dead Video Game Development Podcast, Episode 0:
Patient Zero - or - "I Bet a Kid Could Choke on a Duplo"
In this episode: We meet Robert Kirkman and live to tell you about it (though Jake's love of Mario Sunshine wasn't as lucky), the team stops a global pandemic in board game form, and some building blocks are laid down which, in the wrong hands, could end a life. Also answered: Your questions!
Some notes up front!
Our goal with the podcast is to give you guys a regular window into the making of the Walking Dead game -- both the development process of the game, and the types of things we and the team are thinking about and playing while making it -- and also to have a bit of a conversation back-and-forth with the forums. To that end, you guys might recognize a few questions from the mysterious Questions for the Team thread!
This is definitely a test episode -- it was recorded in a kitchen, so audio quality is a bit funky and echoey. If you guys like it and we do more of them, future casts will definitely be recorded in a space that isn't echo city.
Enjoy! Give it a listen and discuss below.
