TWD Season 2 speculation/suggestion (merged threads)

posted by Yusuf Koroma on - last edited - Viewed by 23.9K users

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."

  • What if the next season will be the story of the two people who you see at the end of season one?

    Maybe the next season begins with a new individual / group and you play though 5 episodes with them. At the end of the final episode, you and the remaining survivor of your group are walking through this barren field and you look to you right and see a little girl alone......

    Cut to credits. Prepare for the third and final season of TWD. \m/

    Could be pretty badass. What do you think?

    cool but I really want to know what happens after clem's scene cut out

  • I have a feeling that Lee's ex-wife might make an appearance.

  • @Zombiedude101 said: I have a feeling that Lee's ex-wife might make an appearance.

    That would be scary:)

    Am I the ony one thinking, that we might get to play more than one character. Is it really that unlikely, that we get to do a few tasks as Clementine? She is already helping in S1, so why not let us play as her?

    Ofcause we have to play as an adult main character most of the time to make the game work. FX if we play as Molly, she can do almost everything, but every once in a while Clementines size comes in handy, and we get to actually play her part:)

  • I just really want to see Omid and Christa be in it and meet up with Clem. I didn't like either one at first, but quickly grew to love both.

  • Clementine and company in the Second Season -



    This may sound a little bizarre, for that I apologize, but basically the idea is this... you know how Lee was older and wiser and took care of Clementine while they were together?

    Well... what if the shadow figures on the hill are 'zombies'? And so Clementine runs away, getting into the trees and loses them, she comes across a house, where things are quiet, so she checks it out cautiously, she has already loaded the gun, when she slowed down and came up to the house which is almost a cabin, not very large, isolated and out in the woods, when she goes into the kitchen she hears whimpering, a very soft almost crying.

    She goes to the cabinet and slowly opens the door and sees a young child, perhaps 5 years old or so, boy? girl? Not sure at this point, but what the main idea of this idea is, is that Clementine becomes the main character and not the ward of another adult character that takes Lee's place, but 'she' actually takes Lee's place and helps someone younger and more inexperienced than her.

    Also, in the first season we moved from group to group, meaning we had new people join us and we joined them, until at the end, there was no one left except Clementine. (Omid and Christa's fate is unknown, and I know that many things were 'not' expressly shown, so they become indefinite too, but until things are shown to have survived, I am going with the theory, that Clementine is the only one left alive.)

    But rather than have a re-tread of the first season 'feel and formula', it would be nice to take a completely different track in the second season, and what I think would be very cool, with a different feel and flavor completely, would be to have Clementine and Sally be the main protagonists, they sneak around the woods and out onto the highway, moving away from the city, with Clementine telling Sally as they go, "We have to stay out of the cities, it'll be safer that way... fewer walkers to worry about..."

    Perhaps other characters come into the story, people Clementine and Sally see at a distance, or who they see camped and talking, but don't interact with directly, because if they do, the arc devolves into the adults either taking care of, of taking advantage of the children's situation. Which may present a problem to be gotten around in the story for Clementine and Sally, with them getting untied and escaping back into the woods alone. Or rescuing a twenty something woman and her baby that the group was using as walker bait.

    With the twenty something young woman almost out of her head, but minimally so, it might be Clementine and Sally that take care of the woman and her baby, more than the woman taking care of them.

    I think with a small group that has only a few 'other people' encounters changes the flavor of the story a lot, and if the problems change to environmental challenges instead of other people doing things... Like, ok, we got chased up onto the roof of this house by walkers, how do we get to anther house, and out of the neighborhood?

    Or we got into this store to find some canned baby formula, but now there are raiders coming into the front of the building, how do we get away unseen?

    By having a small group and a change of emphasis from group decisions involving people that come into and out of the group, then we change how it feels when we play it, and it gives us a different side, of how things could go for people if they were out there in the world in a zombie apocalypse. Not everyone is going to be in a group. It may make the story slower, if Clementine and company have to spend a lot of time 'thinking' about how to do things, instead of reacting, but maybe with a smaller group they have to be 'smarter' about things, ya know? :) Just my two cents, but I think it could be both fun and different.

  • if christa and omid are in season 2, and we play one of them, i think it would most likely be omid, because christa has given to many opinions on important things while Omid wasn't really in it as much a christa and Omid never gave a strong opinion on anything unless his intention was to amuse

  • I think the story will revolve around clementine and Molly.
    Molly probably saves clementine and Omid and Christia are probably searching for her.

    Because they said they were going to the "Country side" that is probably where they go looking. Clementine will probably be a little older maybe in her teens.

    The main protagonist might be molly to replace lee.

    Won't be older, that would require the game to take place further in time then where the comics are at. I don't think Molly will replace Lee, she has an established personality.

  • If they decide to follow other characters, it might be interesting to see a story take place during the winter months. That'd offer something very different.
