A lot of you have seen this already since we're getting press coverage today, but there's the link to the first episode of Playing Dead - a new online talk show we're producing to offer you a behind the scenes look at the making of the Walking Dead game.

Our video editor Shaun Finney spearheaded this project, and it turned out great! A.J. Locascio (the voice of Marty in the Back to the Future game) is hosting, and the first episode features some of the Telltale crew talking about their favorite moments from Robert Kirkman's Walking Dead comic, and an interview with lead designers Jake Rodkin and Sean Vanaman on what the game is, and what to expect from it. There's screenshots from the game throughout the video.

The first episode will be hitting iTunes, Xbox Live and PSN soon, and we'll have new episodes for you on a biweekly basis going forward, with 9 episodes in total.

Looking forward to hearing what you think!

    why isnt this on the telltale youtube or the main page as a playing dead, is there some kind of exclusivity deal for ign for a few days or did you guys just forget to put it on your website?

    no shit. are the paying customers of IGN more important?

    It's IGN! They whore out all kinds of exclusivity and other nonsense that just seems stupid. They're the people who convinced Bioware to put one of their journalists in Mass Effect 3 and then gave the game a really high score (yes it was a different journalist on that review but I still call conflict of interest on that). I'm sure they paid Telltale a buttload of money to get that stuff before anyone else, even Telltale! That's not meant as an insult to Telltale, but it is just most likely the case.

  • Also a fun little fact from the Playing Dead video was the stats for the food distribution. Here are the percentage results on who fed who:

    Clem: 96% (The 4% who didn't feed her have no soul!)
    Duck: 95%
    Mark: 58%
    Larry: 42%
    Kenny: 33%
    Lilly: 29%
    Ben: 19%
    Carley: 15%
    Lee (Kept for themselves): 11%
    Doug: 3% (So much for the developers' favorite...)

    actually i dont mind if ign is willing to pay telltale to get traffic on their site ( i just wondered why it wasnt up), as long as that was the deal, a shady review fix in exchange for exclusive videos would annoy me though, businesses should make money any way they can as long as it isnt morally wrong like fixing reviews to get more sales

  • i was wondering if anyone knows why the episode is on every other game site except telltales seems odd that gamespot and ign have it before the telltale website

  • @divisionten said: Om nom nom?

    In all seriousness, are there any games where you play as a zombie trying to survive?

    Yes, Stubbs the zombie

    No one fed Katjaa?

    Edit: Can you even feed her?
