TWD Season 2 speculation/suggestion (merged threads)

In the coming months, Telltale Games will release three more episodes of their adventure game The Walking Dead. They won't stop there, though. Telltale marketing executive Steve Allison said that they will create a second season eventually as well.

"Following the digital release of our fifth episode we will also be coming to North American retail shortly thereafter and this will not be the last The Walking Dead game series that we do," Allison told Polygon.

The Walking Dead has been a huge critical and commercial success for Telltale. The first episode, "A New Day," sold almost 1.7 million copies in its first two months. It's said to be the company's fastest-selling game ever.

The game starts before the events of the Walking Dead show and comic. Lee Everett, a man convicted of murder, has been unexpectedly free as a zombie outbreak sweeps the globe. He and a small group of survivors band together in order to stay alive. As Lee, players must endure zombie attacks as well as internal strife among the survivors.

It's not clear whether the second season of the game will be a direct continuation of the first season. They might just decide to tell a new story with a completely different cast of characters. I'd be happy with either. The writing for these games has proven top-notch so I have faith that Telltale could craft another compelling set of survivors for us to follow.

Episode 3 of Walking Dead will be available in August. "Following the digital release of our fifth episode we will also be coming to North American retail shortly thereafter and this will not be the last The Walking Dead game series that we do."

  • @FistoTheSexbot said: I think at the start we would see where omid and christa are, later on they would maybe find Clem, who would inform them about Lee. It would probaly shift to the person you are playing, walking towards a broken down RV, to search for food. You find a walker banging on the bathroom door, kill it, then find Lilly either dead / alive & dehydrated, you give her some water you got left, then stay for the night inside the RV, later on you wake up hearing Clem's voice saying "That's our groups RV!" then I don't know.

    I know it's different if you didn't take Lilly with you but, she could have followed and taken the RV after you left on the train.

    Problem with that is though is that Lily is in the comic book and she plays a pretty serious role in her brief time in the spotlight. Although its still very possible they could run into her with the way they left her in the comic and I hope they do in Season 2. It would certainly be an interesting event. Seeing Clem and Lily meeting up and Clem telling her what happened. See her response.

  • Hi there,
    Telltale or will be developed in the second game of the season?
    Sorry for my bad English

  • I may sound sexist but im not, trust me. But I would HATE to play as a female or Clem. I like RP'ing in games and playing as a girl totally ruins it for me. Im sure im not the only guy who thinks this.. and well, playing as a nine year old girl is even worse. I'd like a new male protagonist. Maybe an ex soldier, a character like Abe from the comics who can really take care of Clem. I hope Clem finds her way back to Omid and Christa and the 3 of them join with the new guy.

  • I think it's time to experience the story from Clem's perspective.

  • New character with a new story.

  • I am 100% certain you will play a completely new character. Reason is that in a game like this the game needs you to be able to define your own character. You can't just slip into an existing NPC with known character-traits and go from there. Doesn't make sense and would be awful. So yea, you are neither playing Clem nor Christa/Omid or anyone else from S1.

    Will you meet someone from S1? Likely, but the protagonist will be an undeveloped character for sure. And that's how it should be.

    And I can't grasp that 35% of the people actually believe you will play as Clementine in Season 2. That's pure ridiculous.

  • I want to play as Kenny ( even tho chances are he is dead) Why you might ask?

    Because of his sexy mustache, giving you the option to seduce women and men in a dialogue, and his strong muscles to fight of the horrible hoard of walkers, oh my... Imagine it, Kennny with no shirt fighting walkers with a big machete, the sun shining on his mustache.

  • I want to play a slighty more mature Clementine, just a couple months older i guess. Her character is so awesome and after all that character development it would be a disservice to throw it away for a new character.

    Plus when is the last time you got to play as a badass little girl in a zombie game? "Zombies Ate My Neighbors" come to mind, but that's about it :D

  • I feel like playing as Omid or Christa would be a good choice, since we got to know them and like them enough that I wouldn't be all "BLERGH. WHO IS THIS PERSON WHO ISN'T LEE. AWAY WITH THEM.", but there's still enough 'empty space' in them to fill.

    Like, they've come at the tail end of your journey, and they seem to have had it relatively safe and successful for now. Which also means they haven't been tested.

    We got to know Kenny, Lily, Clementine, Ben and Lee (and ourselves) through how they act in a desperate situations. Not so much for Omid and Christa. So I feel there's room to grow there.

    I sort of lean to Omid more because no matter how you sliced it with Lee, he seemed like a man with the weight of the world on his shoulders. Someone with a little bit of a more light-hearted personality might be interesting. On the other hand, I'd love to play Christa since she's got such a tough demeanor and dry sense of humour.

    The other thing though is that part of the reason Lee worked was because you had Clementine. Without her, Lee wouldn't work. She gave the game and the character focus.

    And you can't just replicate that. You can't just take the new protagonist and Clem and push for the same relationship because it will never ring as true as it could with Lee. And replacing her with another child or object of care and affection could end up even worse.

    It's an interesting dilemma, and I'm really interested in seeing how Telltale approach it.
