  • Maybe two protagonists at the most but definitely not more than that, and they should alternate between episodes. Protagonist 1/1st Episode, Protagonist 2/2nd Episode and so on.

    Switching during episodes seems like it would be kind of irritating, except for the season finale, maybe. Not a bad idea, but I think one protagonist works fine and is probably ideal.

  • That's not a bad idea, and it does offer something different to season 1. It could be interesting to see how one character's choices affect another, and vice versa.

    I could see something like controlling Clementine as she escapes Savannah and meets up with the shadowy figures, then we take control of one of them (be it Omid or Christa, or someone new).

    On the other hand, having multiple protagonists could make it more difficult on Telltale and diminish the impact of the story. Or it could be awesome!

  • It would be pretty fun in a 'normal world' where everyone is all over the place with their own problems, but in a zombie apocalypse, everyone's all bunched up together in a group with 3 main problems (food/water, shelter, and zombies) so I guess playing as different characters in a zombie world would be more or less the same as if you were playing as one character :/

    Yeah, my point exactly, they would have the same worries and you wouldn't really have much to do with each character, it would be boring and I would find it annoying just stick to one character and keep it that way, the walking dead worked as it was.

    But it's the people and places that change how things go. Imagine if Lilly and Larry were kind hearted people instead of the mean, hot-headed people they were. We'd still have Doug and Carley. Different people is what really makes the game for me.

    I'm not saying I'm disagreeing, but just pointing out that the main character isn't all that matters. It is an interactive game of course.

  • I think it's an option they could consider, but would be harder to pull off. If we had been jumping characters in season 1 I guarantee you I wouldn't have gotten the same attachment as I did with Lee and Clem.

    On the other hand, it would keep the game constantly fresh and the story could go a lot of different places if it's jumping around.

  • I'll just be happy if in season 2 they manage to produce fresh scenarios and situations that would require a different mindset to come up with a decision.

    I don't know like what if for some reason not currently known you had the choice to use an army missile to bomb a town. There may still be survivors in the town but the zombie population is ridiculously high.

    More major scale decisions like that would be good. Also clem should be present as a NPC with characteristics based of season 1 save files(might be a bit hard to do).

    Basically just make the decisions a bit less personal this time, but just make the group members reactions and thoughts of you much more polarized as the decisions you make effect a wider scale

  • I like the idea but only if the chapters are longer or if there are more chapters. Wouldn't like it to play both characters only for about 4 hours. I wouldn't be able to play in his role but yes, interesting idea.

  • Maybe this can be done with the two shadows at the end. Lets say they find clementine, they got to know her story (episode 1), then something happens to separate them(episode 2). Then you play with one that is with clem and the other that got separated. Something like that. One of them may eventually die according to your choosing at the end, and the other continues with clem and new members.

  • I'm really annoyed I can't play this game because I don't have a PS3 :( I don't think it available for Xbox is it? I would really like to play it because my friend was telling me about it the other day, I might have to watch some lets plays on the good old YouTube, but I do think that I would get a little bored of character switching but I suppose it could work :)
