The folks at Telltale have released the first part of a multi-part behind-the-scenes documentary talking about the upcoming The Walking Dead video game. In the video that's embedded below, you can learn about how the project got pitched, who its main characters are, why Telltale decided to go with a story that predates the events of Rick Grimes' journey, and whether the folks at Telltale are using the original comics or the new AMC show as canon for the title.
The long and short of the nearly 15 minute video is that Telltale is setting out to tell a completely original story set within the Walking Dead universe to expand the mythos instead of retreading familiar ground. To that we say, good for them.
Enjoy the behind-the-scenes look, folks.
