Playing Dead Q&A Confirming Possible Lee/Carley Romance?

posted by zgamer on - last edited - Viewed by 1.7K users

So a Q&A question from the recent Playing Dead video actually asked the developers if a romance was budding between Lee and Carley.

Their response: "Hm...well, I mean....There's hints and I think some people read into it more than others." "She knows about Lee's past before the Apocalypse...they have a secret and that brings people together sometimes."

I'd like to say this is a confirmation that the romance is possible, but it still has slightly cryptic wrappings based on what was said and how it was said.

So what do you all think this means? Should we take that as a yes?

  • Nah I think they realise they have something better, nothing is more boring than 2 virtual characters and their virtual relationships...there are almost limitless possibilities that can be created in games, I'd hate to see 10-20 minutes of the two hour episodes wasted on why Lee wants to dig out carley.

  • I never believe anything is a confirmation unless they flat out say they'll definetly add it and are willing to risk their names on the line to possibly be added to tv tropes "Lying Creators" page if it doesn't happen.

    yeah, i have the internet for porn, i wouldn't really care for a relationship in the middle of a zombie apocalypse (even though the comics have way more sex in it than the tv show) i just dont see how it would fit in in the circumstances that lee is in

  • I think Carley will be open for something like a love interest, perhaps a little teasing (the batteries for radio thing) and flirting going back and forth if the player wishes. What good is a zombie game if you don't care for the people in your group. Also, it would be good for the game to force you to decide if you should lead with your head or your heart. Would you willingly put others in danger to protect Carley?

  • it's not that i dont care about the characters in the game, its that i dont like the idea of "there is a man and a woman in close proximity you know what is gonna happen now" i really think lee is to old to act like a horny teenager, plus they have been together for months without a hint of sexual tension or even any particular closeness toward carley, they are two humans trying to survive, just because one is a man and one is a woman it doesnt automatically mean that sex is inevitable

  • Happy that they noticed this. Come on Telltale, make it happen!:D

  • so if you choose doug will it be doug/lee romance lol

    @thestalkinghead said: just because one is a man and one is a woman it doesnt automatically mean that sex is inevitable

    Uhh yes, put a girl and a boy in one room for several hours alone and they will have sex eventually its uhh logic.

  • Nobody says Lee and Carley has to get down and dirty for the sake of our fans.
    We're just asking if, considering the situation/mutual respect that both members have for each other, that a possible romance is budding, or is there an option to take it to that level.

    It doesn't have to be sexual, it can be subtle hints of love that shows the both of them have feelings for each other. Although, for me, it is a bit hard to imagine.

    I see Carley and Lee as comrades, loyal ones. Like what ZombieGoBoom says, it's not an entirely bad thing to make something like that happen. That gives TTG more ideas of pitting the players in situations that make players make hard choices.

    Go for a new guy and let Carley die off ? Or save Carley, let the new fellow get chomped to death ? Honestly, I'm being biased, but I seriously think determinant characters in this series makes a whole lot of difference.

    And frankly, because they're determinant, I don't think TTG will make them die within within those 5 episodes. They will die, but they'd die off screen, no ?

  • So, a romance does happen and Lee has to choose between Carly and Clem.

    I know what most people would choose but that would probably devastate Lee in the game.

  • I think we should take it as a yes. But not a happy yes. But we're not going to lose gametime watching Lee and Carley take moonlit strolls in the park. Instead, we're being set up by being put in the same situation as Kenney in e2. Now, our "family" (Carley and Clem) are in danger and Lee has to make a similar decision just like Kenny in the meatlocker. I can see it now..."you all hate Kenny for what he did...let's see what you would do when loved ones are in danger".
