The chilling end to Telltale Game‘s The Walking Dead is all too fresh in my memory. I held off completing the game for months, and it wasn’t until a few weeks ago I finally finished it. And I was an emotional wreck! No spoilers, but… wow. I’ve never played a game before that affected me as deeply as The Walking Dead did. Now it appears Telltale is ready to destroy my fragile psyche yet again. I’d like to be as spoiler-free as possible because not knowing the outcome is huge factor in what makes The Walking Dead so damn good, but there’s a big one I won’t be able to avoid. If you haven’t yet played Telltale’s The Walking Dead and you intend to do so: LEAVE NOW.
At the end of The Walking Dead Clementine was left completely alone. Not defenseless, thankfully, but the little girl was going to have to fend for herself in a most dangerous world. And judging by this new teaser we’ll pick up right where Season 1 left off,
While there isn’t much given away in this short teaser, it’s clear we’ll take on the role of Clementine for this next chapter. Something I’m looking forward to, as well as dreading.
Telltale co-founder and CEO Dan Connors spoke of Season 2, saying,
The terrifying nature of Robert Kirkman’s world has allowed Telltale to push the boundaries of interactive drama in video games to a place that has had fans anxious to know what will happen next in this series…. Today we can finally lift the veil, albeit only a little, on how this story will continue, and we’ll soon be putting players in the shoes of a lead role that will challenge their expectations of how to survive in a world where no one can be trusted.
Yup, we’ll definitely be playing as Clementine; an eight, possible now nine, year old girl. I can only imagine what terrible choices we’ll have to make for her in the future.
There was a DLC, 400 Days, which I never played, that dealt with a completely new roster of characters. Apparently your decisions in that DLC will affect how The Walking Dead Season 2 plays out, as will your choices from Season 1. The biggest question I have is if how you chose to deal with Lee, or rather, how you chose for Clementine to deal with Lee and his impending zombie-ism will affect the story? Any thoughts?
Were you as emotionally wrecked as I when you finished Season 1? Still no release date for Season 2, but are you as excited to continue Clementine’s story?
