A Petition, and Protest, Against This Game.

posted by Gumbyfan on - last edited - Viewed by 3.1K users

This thread has been made as the start of a petition and protest against the proposed production of an adaptation of "The Walking Dead." With all of its games to date, the truly wonderful people at TellTale Games have focused squarely on games which are suitible for most, sometimes all, ages.
But, with this proposed game, TTG considers to waste part of their creative resources on producing a survive-the-zombies-and-watch-the-gore-game.
I understand that TTG is a business and therefore must consider all options. I also understand that they have already begun the game design process. However, I still post the beginning of what I hope will be a long list of people against against what might be TTG's first horrid game.
Note: The poll above is designed to show the specific, main reason that made each individual sign by posting below.

  • When Telltale was smaller, they made games that were the employees specialities. Now that they have grown, the have a more diverse expertise and have enough employees to work in sub-teams (like EA, who works on a bucket-load of games at once.)

  • I think this whole thread is nothing but a troll attempt!

    Most media companies make media suitable for different target groups. Ubisoft, for example, makes a lot of that imagine babies stuff, while still making games for the older demographic such as Assassin's Creed. I'm not sure why this is such a problem.

    As countless people have mentioned before, the thing that sets Walking Dead apart from the typical zombie story is that it's centered more around the characters rather than SHOOT SHOOT KILL THE ZEDS. Zombies are more of a catalyst for the problems in the story rather than the main focus.


    The reason why CSI isn't listed in the store is because of the licensing agreement, not because of some moral quandary.

    oh yeah- and how is sam and max high brow?

  • Have you actually read the Walking Dead?

    I actually just read a few comics and I must agree here. In the last one I saw, only 2 things(they are never called zombies I've noticed) appeared at all, and the plot still drove along just fine, so killing zombies wouldnt be the whole game, if that was the case, I'd go buy L4D.

  • IM really looking forward to The Walking Dead... don't worry its not like they are going to stop making games like Sam and Max completely

    Thanks for posting a poll that represents both sides of the issue.

  • Signed.

    I just don't like the franchise. Wish they were willing to use their effort for something that actually worths something. Like Monkey Island 6.

  • I'm probably not gonna buy it but I wouldn't sign a petition to try and get it to stop being made cos its pointless and selfish to think TTG should revolve around one persons likes.

  • To the OP: If you really want to protest against TTG's Walking Dead game, it's simple: Don't buy it. That's the best you can do.

    It's announced, they're making it, they're selling it. If you don't like that fact, then don't buy the game.
