Set in the world of Robert Kirkman's award-winning comic book series, The Walking Dead is a game of adventure horror.

You play as Lee Everett, a university professor convicted of a crime of passion and sentenced to jail.

While being transported to prison, your world is turned upside down as the apocalypse begins, and you are thrown headlong into a world devastated by the undead.

The Walking Dead is a game where choices matter. Things you say and do will have a direct effect on the story that you experience, leading to numerous possible outcomes.

Choose wisely, because your life and the life of those you care about will depend on your decisions.
