Isn't there a WD game out tomorrow? Thought this would be of interest to the board.

How involved are with Activision's The Walking Dead game?


That's actually something that AMC is heading up and it's based on the television show. I'm not as involved because that's their thing. I'm looking at stuff. I'm aware of it's existence. I know Activision is working very hard to make a cool looking game and I'm hopeful it will be something that is worthy of the Walking Dead brand, but it's not something that I'm actively, intimately involved with.

Telltale's game is based off the comic book, so I have a bunch more control over that than I do with what AMC does. I know there is a quote out there where I said, "It would be dumb to do a first person Walking Dead game because there are so many that it wouldn't be something that would be competitive in the marketplace, and you'd always be compared to Left 4 Dead so why bother." I don't think AMC read that quote.

But I will say this game is very much the Dixon brothers' game. These two characters don't exist in the comic, so the ability to play as those characters and learn more about those characters, who are very popular in the show, could actually push this game over the top and make it a worthwhile experience. That's what I'm hoping on.



I know Archie is doing a Mega Man and Sonic crossover in its comics. Maybe you could write a Mega Man/Walking Dead crossover.

I think that would be the stupidest thing ever.

The Walkind Dead game is going to suck. Like many failed movie games.
