"Only" Carley, Doug, Duck, Katjaa, Larry, Ben, Mark are surely dead (if you only count those which have been in the group for a longer time)
Maybe TellTale even troll our expections and let Omid/Christa die and Kenny survive^^
I don't think that they let them all die too early in the storyline. The death of Katjaa/Duck was dramatically and good. I really liked it to see how it changed Kenny, it was a good story.
Larrys death was also okay, without that death there would have been much less rivality in the group -> less drama -> worse story. Also the Lee death was good story telling in my opinion. I only agree about Carley/Doug. I didn't like their death because of nothing. I even think that this scene was the only one which could have been done better (I only speak about the story)
Why would you think that the Lilly in the game is a different Lilly from the comics? Telltale confirmed from day one that the game had cameo appearances; Glenn, Hershel and Lilly. That was their way of making the game authentic. Telltale said they thought it would be cool to show what shaped Lilly into becoming the character from Woodbury we see in the comics. The game is canon to the original comic's story and of the same branch from walking dead universe unlike the TV show. So by now Glenn from the game is with Rick, Hershel's barn holds walkers and Lilly is on the road to Woodbury or there already.
Regarding the point I made about the deaths in the story, I suppose that is down to opinion, but for me I didn't feel anything when, Chuck died,when Ben died, when Lee buried the boy in the attic and I wouldn't have been moved by Omnid or Christa's deaths because I barely knew these characters. My point was that all of the characters that I personally cared about were killed of by episode 3 accept Lee and Clementine. Although this is all only an opinion, I don't think anyone can deny that Cary dying in the sewer scene would have been more emotional than when Chuck died there.
