The world we knew is gone. The dead have risen to feed on the living. The living cannot be trusted.

Starving. Never safe. Looking for hope. What would you do?

The Walking Dead is a critically-acclaimed adventure horror game set in Robert Kirkman’s award-winning universe. Beginning when Deputy Sheriff Rick Grimes is still in a coma, this is a new story telling the tale of Lee Everett – a man given a second chance at life in a world of the undead.

Taking an orphaned girl named Clementine under his wing, Lee must deal with true horror under the constant threat of walkers hungry for flesh… as well as other survivors, desperate enough to do anything to stay alive.
