Should all of S2 happen during winter?

I can't help but think of having one episode set around Christmas, where the new survivor group is doing its best to celebrate the holidays, despite the macabre circumstances. (I don't know if the comic book has already beaten me to this.)

  • It's close to winter, so it'd be great. The comics have already passed 2 winters.

  • I like that idea, and season 1 ended pretty close to winter, regardless.

    Minor holiday festivities would be a welcome respite from all of the depressing shit that usually occurs in The Walking Dead. Plus, I'd like to see Clementine's face after opening a Christmas present (a brand new Colt Python .357 Magnum :D).

    We can't really expect much snow, though, this is Georgia we're talking about.

  • I believe (if I remember right) that in the first winter of the comics, they realize it's Christmas and don't even acknowledge it. But it's been a while since I read them hehe.

    I think that would be a lot of fun. Plus it'd give TTG the perfect setting to start breaking hearts right away lol.

    Too, it'd be awesome to play through the hardships of winter. Manufacturers weren't worried about getting their winter lines out to big stores. They'd have to find a specialty/sports shop and hope that they had ski coats and whatnot. They'd also have to find a way to insulate wherever they were staying. Which would impede vision, make moving around harder, packing bulkier, so on.
    You can help protect against the elements in a house/room by using duct tape and plastic wrap on the windows, pulling the blinds down, and putting the drapes over it. But how the heck are you going to see someone coming at you? And if we end up with another group in an RV, I'm not sure if it would work the same way.
    Blankets and heavy clothes and jackets will take up a lot of space, and it won't be so easy to pull weapons out of your pocket and whatnot.
    Not to mention that we'd have to deal with people freezing to death.
    What would be really interesting would be if we ended up playing as a really great summer/autumn group - a group that had maybe grown crops and found a small body of water - and winter really messes them up because they have no greenhouse and the water freezes over.
    I know this is rambling so I'll cut it short, the TLDR version:
    It would present a variety of seasonally-unique problems that would be fun to work through and provide plenty of opportunity for death.

    I lived in Georgia for a few years, you don't need a ski jacket at all for the winters. Even a flannel shirt is enough to stay moderately warm, and it definitely doesn't drop to "deadly" temperatures unless you are practically naked. The worst thing about the winter would be vulnerability to illness, the death of crops, and the lesser amount of animals.

  • I don't know how much of a Christmas party anyone could muster, but I could see them talking about it at the very least, maybe have some familial reminiscing. Either way, I wouldn't mind seeing more seasonal/weather variance.

    D'aaw.

  • I've never been to Georgia :P I just know that in Texas winters have been getting colder the last few years. Lots of snowing and ice storms. Which is something I didn't see but maybe once every 2 or 3 years when I was a kid. (Of course, it depends on what part of Texas you're in, too lol.) I would hate to go through a winter without a jacket nowadays!
    But I would want it to be more accurate. If it just doesn't snow in Georgia, I think it'd be silly to see them walking around in ski jackets hehe. :P

  • Since Telltale's going for areas and themes they have yet to visit, I'd say winter episodes are a high possibility. I'd love to see some winter scenery in the game's art style.

  • Not to mention walkers buried under snow. Kid starts building snowman = bam! Walkers.

  • Well not ALL of the season. Maybe one or two episodes and then a break until spring.

    That's what I was thinking.
