The Walking Dead Goes Mobile And It’s “Unlike Anything” Else
The Walking Dead is perhaps the strongest multimedia franchise out there. It excels in comics, TV, games and probably even movies soon. I’d wager there are some intriguing fan-fiction novels too albeit a lot of them probably revolve around Darryl erotica.
AMC is partnering with Next Games to bring The Walking Dead to you in a mobile focused gaming experience. Currently, Telltale has their point and click TWD games on Android and iOS but apparently this is completely different. The untitled game will release alongside the fifth season of the TV series. Whenever that may be.

Next Games was founded in 2013 by a team of design veterans from Rovio (Angry Birds), Supercell (Clash of Clans), and Disney (Disney Infinity). This will be their first game but the studio certainly has some talent behind it.
“We chose to team up with Next Games because of their outstanding creative and technical talent, as well as a willingness to re-imagine the unique and compelling world of The Walking Dead, which has built a significant and passionate global fan community,” he said.
Next Games CEO Teemu Huuhtanen said the studio’s Walking Dead game will “match the against-all-odds action and moment-to-moment tension of the TV series.” It aims to find the “sweet spot” where gameplay and narrative “inform and reinforce one another.”
“Like AMC’s The Walking Dead itself, we’re not giving away too many details right out the gate, but I can confidently state it’s unlike anything we’ve seen from The Walking Dead franchise on home or mobile gaming hardware before,” Huuhtanen said.
Keep your fingers crossed that this isn’t a free-to-play catastrophe.
