A video game adaptation of the critically acclaimed graphic novel and AMC’s TV show, The Walking Dead had been rumored for a while now but yesterday, its creator, Robert Kirkman confirmed its existence to IGN. The game will be developed by Telltale Games, best known for their Sam and Max series and like those games, it will follow the episodic content structure laid out by Telltale.
Details regarding the genre are a bit scarce so it could be anything from a shooter to a third person action game to an adventure. Kirkman remained tight lipped about the genre bit saying the game was in its nascent stage and details were being worked out.
The Walking Dead videogame will release sometime in 2011 for the PC, Mac, consoles as well as handheld platforms.
