While The Walking Dead was transformed for television from its comic book state, it was also adapted into a video game that takes a different direction than the comic book and television show. It is said that Telltale games didn’t want to take the same approach and create a game based on Rick’s story, the character that the comic book centers around. There was so much going on involving Rick that Telltale wanted to take a different approach. They chose a different set of characters and took the idea of survival in the world of zombies and focused on the different group.
The game is episodic and will be composed of five episodes, beginning with the first episode’s release in April. While this idea of episode releasing of the games follows along with the idea of how comic books and television episodes are shown. But the video game adaptation of the the comic The Walking Dead takes the player on a new experience each installment of the game. Also an interesting choice was to include the character Glenn in the first episode of the game before he leaves the game. In the comic and show, Glenn is part of Rick’s group. SO to have the character initially there before parting was interesting decision.
