The Walking Dead has made its name in literature, television, and, more recently, video games with a slew of narratives capitalizing on the culture’s obsession with the undead. Telltale Games, a developer renowned for its handle on the adventure genre, has been the most recent studio to direct its attention towards the franchise with last month’s The Walking Dead: Episode 1 – A New Day, the first of five episodes based in the universe so eloquently crafted by acclaimed writer Robert Kirkman. Today, The Walking Dead: Episode 2 – Starved For Help picks up where the original title left off in a way that has already garnered the favor of critics across the board.
Remaining true to its episodic form, Starved For Help proceeds in correlation with the decisions made in A New Day. In the span of the first game, players were faced with life-altering decisions for Lee Everett, the game’s main protagonist who is seeking redemption for past crimes, and Episode 2 promises to be no different in that respect.
The Walking Dead: Episode 2 – Starved For Help is now available on the Xbox 360 for 400 Microsoft Points ($5.00). On June 29, the game will launch for Mac, PC, and PlayStation 3 for $4.99. Those certain that they wish to continue the story of Lee Everett can also choose to purchase a season pass for $19.99 on the PlayStation 3 or for $24.99 on Mac and PC.
