The Walking Dead has been extremely successful for Telltale Games. How successful? It’s only the best-selling game the company has ever produced. According to the publisher, the first episode of the series, “A New Day,” has been downloaded over one million times on the PC, PlayStation Network, and Xbox Live Arcade.
And after it scored a seven out of seven in our review, that’s none-too-surprising.
“Premiering The Walking Dead game series to record numbers across so many diverse platforms is a tremendous achievement that shows the value of bringing strong storytelling and game play together,” said Dan Connors, CEO of Telltale Games. “The tailored narrative design puts gamers in control of their own story within the universe of The Walking Dead in a way that appeals equally to hardcore gamers and to more casual gamers who are fans of the franchise. The most exciting aspect of getting off to such a great start is that this is just the beginning of the five episode series. The Walking Dead fans are going to experience some really great moments in the months ahead that are uniquely influenced by the choices they make throughout the season.”
The second episode in the series, “Starved For Help,” will be available in June.
