The lights are on
The first episode of Telltale Games' adaptation of The Walking Dead was released a few weeks ago, and it's already cleared a significant milestone. The adventure game has been downloaded more than 1 million times, across the PC, Mac, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 platforms.
"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," says Telltale CEO Dan Connors. "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."
Ben liked the first episode, and we're definitely interested to see what's ahead. It'll be interesting to see if the numbers stay strong in the following episodes.

I thought the first episode was all right. Hopefully they can continue to improve.
Good to hear it's apparently better than that abortion of a game that was Jurassic Park.
I'm glad this sold 1 million copies. It's such a great game, very different from what you would expect, and I really enjoyed it. I played through it multiple times to see the different outcomes.
Really good game. I downloaded the bundle, so can't wait for the next episode.
Stuff like this SHOULD BE downloaded millions of times, not crap like Angry Birds.
Since there is so much hype about this game I think I will download this over the weekend. Especially since its only $5 and they will be coming out with more in the future.
